San Remo Bakery

When I want to bring a spectacular dessert to a dinner party, I head to a very special Italian bakery in south Etobicoke. San Remo is one of my favourite bakeries and cafes in the city. The pastries are beautiful, fresh and delicious. Their macarons rival some of the best pastry shops in the city including Nadege, and I love Nadege. It is crazy busy and you will understand why after you eat something at San Remo. It is the real deal.

Learning to Drive starring Ben Kingsley and Patricia Clarkson comes out on DVD today and I have a copy to give away to one lucky good-movie-loving reader! All you have to do is leave a comment on this post by midnight this Saturday January 23rd and a winner will be randomly chosen. This wonderful romantic comedy debuted at last year's Toronto International Film Festival and was the first runner-up for the Audience Award.

Clarkson plays a Manhattan writer who takes driving lessons after her husband of 20 years suddenly bails on her. Her Sikh instructor (Kingsley) has marriage troubles of his own, and the two form an unlikely but charming friendship behind the wheel. It's witty and well-written, such a sweet movie. Loved it. Check out the trailer below. Good luck! Rosie :)

India 360- Scarborough

American economist Tyler Cowen recently made a bold declaration about the dining scene in Scarborough. After eating at four different restaurants in the area, he concluded that "Scarborough is the best ethnic food suburb I have seen in my life, ever, and by an order of magnitude." (I've included his blog post below.) Working on the border of Scarborough and Markham means having an amazing variety of lunch spots to choose from. I don't know if India 360 was one of the spots Cowen tried out, but to me it is a perfect example of why it's time we all start dining more east of the DVP.

The Queen and Beaver Public House

British comfort food is awesome... cobblers and flaky pies and rich meats and curries are delicious, especially when it's cold out. The Q&B on Elm Street is such a cozy, pretty place to dine and really takes these types of dishes to the next level. The lamb curry with rice and apple chutney is spicy and packed with flavour.

Fresh East (Downtown Yonge)

I wish this sandwich shop was here when I went to Ryerson. I would have eaten a lot less of Ernie's hot dogs (no offense Ernie!) Fresh East by Paramount Fine foods is a Middle-Eastern inspired take-out eatery just steps from Yonge Dundas Square in downtown Toronto serving pitas, sandwiches, soups and salads prepared with the freshest ingredients.

West City Snack Bar

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.
