Azarias | Etobicoke

Azarias a tapas-style restaurant with great atmosphere and delicious food. I like restaurants that can pull off a vibe where jeans work, but also a really pretty dress. It's fun with a group. It's best to order several dishes, because the portions are small and everything is excellent.

Oysters (Malpeques PEI)

I hope your server is the lovely and VERY funny Catherine, an aspiring actor who does an hysterical Robin Williams impersonation. She recited a routine he did about golf and had the table belly laughing. Rosie :)

Grand Electric | Parkdale

Best tacos in the city hands down. Yes, it's noisy and the wait for a table can be long. But it's worth it. Pictured below, Muskoka shrimp, pork belly, beef cheek, Baja fish and scrapple tacos.

Just order anything off the chalk board, it all tastes delicious. The Baja fish tacos will blow your mind, as will the tuna ceviche. The Grand Electric in Parkdale is one of my faves. Rosie
