Chaban | Etobicoke

Welcome to Chaban, a Korean restaurant in south Etobicoke. It's cheerful, casual, and crazy fresh. The bibimbap, which is a signature Korean dish that literally means "mixed rice", is delicious. The chili paste is served on the side.



The meal starts with an assortment of complimentary banchan, which translates to "side dish". These small dishes of pickled vegetables are spicy and very tasty. My favourite banchan is the diced radish kimchi.


The beef bulgogi (signature Korean grilled marinated beef) was tender and savoury. Tons of flavour.


Make sure to check the daily special board which features some very inventive dishes. There are many different types of bibimbap.


The service is excellent. A welcome addition of authentic Korean to the west end of the city. Rosie :)

Firkin On The Bay | Humber Bay Shores

For the longest time the only place to eat on a patio on the Humber Bay Shores was at Eden. It's really good but it's nice to have some other options. Firkin on the Bay is a welcome addition to this pretty area. Even if you sit inside, the huge floor-to-ceiling windows give a great view of Lake Ontario and the downtown Toronto skyline. The interior is inspired by a London tube station and is really fun and funky, with huge industrial open ceilings and giant bright canvases.

Easter in the Kingsway

If you are looking for something fun and free to do Easter weekend with your little bunnies, head over to Easter in the Kingsway in the west end of Toronto. There is lots of free entertainment, free chocolates, surprise giveaways and Easter bunnies hopping all over the place. The trampoline is always a hit.


Get your picture taken with the Easter rabbit at the northwest corner of Royal York Road and Bloor St. West. Easter in the Kingsway takes place the Saturday of Easter weekend in Etobicoke's Kingsway neighbourhood, which stretches from Prince Edward Drive to Montgomery Road. The Kingsway is home to lots of lovely restaurants and boutiques and a location of one of my favourite bakeries, Bake Sale and French restaurants, Merlot. Rosie :)

Extreme Pita | Vellore Village

March Break is wrapping up and after a week of hitting a lot of drive-thrus, we decided we needed a quick and healthy early dinner to fuel our busy Saturday of errands. I really could not look at one more nugget. It's Nutrition Month and I wanted some vegetables. The Extreme Pita in the Vellore Village shopping centre has the new Extreme Entrees which are more filling than a pita, super-nutritious and so, so tasty. Here's the Chimichurri Beef entree.

The Ace | Roncesvalles

Really enjoyed The Ace on Roncesvalles. I've been told their kale salad with beets, goat's cheese and crispy chick peas is a must-order but I'm pretty bored by all things kale right now so I chose the deep-fried brussels sprouts tossed in vinaigrette to start. So good. Order these even if you think you loathe brussels sprouts!

West City Snack Bar | Etobicoke

I love telling you about great new places to eat on the west side of Toronto. Sometimes they pop up without much fanfare and you don't even realize there is a new restaurant serving amazing Jack and Coke sliders on Horner Avenue. West City Snack Bar is a delicious new lunch spot in south Etobicoke with creative menu items that change up regularly.
