The Pie Commission: Butter Chicken Pie


The first time we visited The Pie Commission, we had Beef 'N Beer pies. I am planning to try all the flavours on the menu, and was especially looking forward to the Butter Chicken pie everyone is always raving about. Went back. Had it. Totally lived up to the hype. Love the caraway seeds on top:

There is a Lobster and Shrimp pie on the menu right now I'm excited to try, but it's always sold out. It smells SO GOOD in this little shop... I'm such a fan! Rosie :)

Ezra's Pound on Dundas West: NOW CLOSED


UPDATE: Ezra's Pound has closed. It has been converted by owner Ezra Braves to S. Lefkowitz, Toronto's first hummusia. Crushed chickpeas are awesome, so love the idea of a hummus-only eatery. Rosie :)

PUBLISHED AUGUST 18 2012: I like a coffee shop that is not afraid to tell you they WANT YOU TO DRINK BETTER COFFEE. Sometimes we all need a reminder.

The coffee at Ezra's Pound is certainly better. I like a good bold Americano and each cup is made to order, and brewed to perfection, every time.

There are two locations of Ezra's Pound in the city. This one is at 913 Dundas St. West at Bellwoods. The other is 238 Dupont, at Madison. Rosie :)

Mezza Lebanese Kitchen: NOW CLOSED


Recently I had lunch at an excellent Lebanese restaurant in Toronto called Mezza. The food was delicious, fresh and beautifully presented. I drove by yesterday and was surprised to see it is now a Japanese restaurant! I was quite disappointed, as I definitely would have returned. The service, decor and cuisine were top-notch. Rosie :)

Have you ever received an edible fruit bouquet? It is such a lovely gift idea. We all enjoy eating perfect juicy delicious fruit, but no one wants to chop it up. And no one wants to arrange it in a stunning basket that is delightful to look at. This is why it is the perfect gift. A change from flowers, but just as bright and colourful. Koya Edibles is a local Toronto company that creates personalized fruit gifts for any occasion. Baskets and bouquets start from $30.00 and can be customized for any occasion:

Toji Sushi


There is a strip of restaurants along Dundas in Islington Village with some real treasures including Chodang Soon Tofu and Anatolia. Toji Sushi is nestled in this rapidly growing restaurant row and a great spot to try if you are looking for some of the best sushi in Etobicoke. I recommend the "Rose" roll (spicy tuna with shrimp tempura) and the Black Dragon (Dynamite roll with BBQ eel on top.)

Fresh delicious fish, and the complimentary miso is some of the best I've ever had. Rosie :)

Yours Truly


It's easy to eat at Yours Truly. The five-course tasting menu focuses on a main ingredient for each dish. You have two options for each course. You pick, and the server brings, along with five amuses. There is also a wine pairing option. The wine selection is excellent. The food looks like art, and the flavours are insane. Some highlights:

Main ingredient... Uni:

Toronto Life chose Yours Truly as the best new restaurant in 2012. Jeff Claudio has since left but Lachlan Culjak is doing just fine. Your Truly also offers a Carte Blanche menu, which is a blind tasting menu. The kitchen selects 20 courses based on your preference of meat or vegetarian.There is a limited number of Carte Blanche seatings so reserve in advance. Rosie :)
