[Toronto] Smoque N' Bones

Image Hosted by ImageShack.usLocation Review
869 Queen St W
Toronto, Ontario
(647) 341-5730

A little while back, I stopped by Smoque N' Bones (@SmoqueNBones) for dinner. At the time it was the new kid on Toronto's Queen West block, and was owner Alex Rad's initiating establishment. Prior to picking up the kitchen knife, Rad was a corporate finance professional. But make no mistake, this is no amateur spot. Smoque N' Bones set out to be an authentic Southern smokehouse, and it definitely delivers it well.

The annual Steam Whistle (@SteamWhistle) Roundhouse Craft Beer Festival is back! One of my favourite boozy events each year, the 2-day event gathers an allstar list of Ontario microbreweries allowing festival-goes to sample a variety of independent beers. Did I mention there will also be food trucks on site?

[Toronto] Little Sister Indonesian Food Bar

Image Hosted by ImageShack.usLocation Review
2031 Yonge Street
Toronto, Ontario
(416) 488-2031

For such a multicultural city like Toronto, there is much to be desired when it comes to Indonesian food. Enter Little Sister Indonesian Food Bar (@LittleSisterTO). This newly opened eatery located in Midtown is a modern eatery serving up a menu created by Dutch-native chef Michael van den Winkel. Having cooked Dutch-Indo cuisine his entire life, you can be sure he's included all his favourite authentic dishes on the list.

[Event] Ontario Oyster Festival 2014

You know we're deep in the heart of summer when there are too many festivals happening and not enough time to attend them all. Hopefully not to get lost among all the summer buzz is the upcoming Oyster Festival. Aside from combining pretty much the two best things on the planet (Come on, oysters and beer!!), all proceeds of the festival's ticket sales goes to Environmental Defense - a charity with a worthy cause. Notably, their Blue Flag Canada initiative is an international program striving for safer, cleaner, and more environmentally friendly beaches and marinas.

[Toronto] The Forth

Image Hosted by ImageShack.usLocation Review
629 Danforth Avenue
Toronto, Ontario
(416) 465-2629

Aptly named after it's location in Greektown Danforth, The Forth (@TheForthTO) is a new comer on the block, opening April earlier this year. Unlike its peers of close proximity, it is anything but a Greek restaurant, headed up by Brassaii's former executive chef Chris Kalisperas (@ChrisKalisperas). With a contemporary Canadian menu, inventative cocktail list, and a beautiful 8,000 square feet, multi-level dining area (yes there's an elevator!), The Forth is one that will impress all the senses.

[Toronto] Ichiriki Japanese Restaurant

Image Hosted by ImageShack.usLocation Review
120 Bloor St East
Toronto, Ontario
(416) 923-2997

Situated between Yonge and Church on Bloor, Ichiriki is a inconspicuous little Japanese-run restaurant. Like most other eateries in this area, they draw a big lunch crowd from all the nearby offices. However, after-hours Ichiriki is just as lively. Aside from a seasonal omakase menu and a monthly live jazz band night, every Tuesday evening they welcome Soba Canada to take over the kitchen and serve fresh handmade authentic soba.
