Farm Boy | South Etobicoke

Ok it's EXCITING to have a new grocery store to shop at! Farm Boy has come to Toronto and the first location is in South Etobicoke at the Shoppes of Alderwood plaza on Brown's Line. The produce is incredible! Look at these oranges:

My little man picked out these delicious vanilla cupcakes in the amazing bakery section. The icing was so fresh!

Farm Boy is famous for their lemon garlic dressing, which is so simple... made from just olive oil, freshly squeezed lemons, minced garlic, black pepper and salt.

The selection of flowers are wonderful as well. Hello tulips... hello spring! Rosie :)

Butter Chicken Roti | West Queen West

This delicious roti restaurant is right on Queen West across from The Great Hall. The Butter Chicken Roti menu features classic Indian dishes with a contemporary take. The food is so tasty and the service is excellent. I like their spice scale:

Mild- Is water a spice?
Mild/Medium- I like it a little spicy
Medium- I never turn down the heat
Medium/Hot- Go Big, but not too big
Hot- Come at me, I got this
Extra Hot- What on earth is wrong with me?

Pictured below is my (mild/medium) butter chicken roti to go. One of my faves. Rosie :)

Extra Butter Coffee | Roncesvalles

I love coffee. It's gotta be good though, and one of the many amazing things about Toronto is how much great coffee there is to be tried. The Bulletproof butter coffee at Extra Butter Coffee on Roncy is definitely extra. I loved it. You can taste the butter, and the beans are dark and oily and fresh and delicious. Loved it! Rosie :)

Nowruz Festival at the Toronto Centre for the Arts

One of the great things about Toronto is that you don't actually have to leave the city to get a taste and appreciation for cultures from all over the world. This weekend the Nowruz Festival celebrates both the start of Spring and the Persian/Iranian New Year! There are a number of ticketed events with this festival but there is also a lot of the free family fun that we love here at The Scoop! The free events mainly take place this Saturday March 10th at the Toronto Centre for the Arts.

There is a Persian bazaar and traditional teahouse opening at 10 for adults where you can shop a little and then starting at noon there are shows and activities all day for kids. There are puppet shows and storytelling, face painting and balloon twisting, along with a kids film and family dance party to end the day! There is also an arts and crafts station in the afternoon where children can learn about the two best known characters of Nowruz, Haji Firuz and Amoo Nowruz and take home their creations, and a pastry making workshop where the little ones can make some little treats. Check the website for more information and specific times! Rosie :)
