Café Dario 1390 Erin Street: A Best Meal

Café Dario re-opened last night. Initially, Café Dario will be open from 5-11 pm Fridays to Sundays. I caught wind of it through the Loaf and Honey Facebook page (more about them later in the review). I booked my reservation online, and ended up as the first customer through the door yesterday evening. Normally I would pay two visits before writing a review.

We never…Continue readingCousin’s Deli, Lounge – South Sherbrook

Folklorama – Mediterranean Style

It’s been a couple of years since I’ve taken in any Folklorama pavilions. This year I am operating on a media pass. I plan to take in several pavilions, particularly at the start of each week and write them up. I will be bringing food highlights, but I also will write about the cultural displays and shows. As most of my readers know, I don’t drive. So I’ll be making my choices based on what works best for the bus/foot combination.…Continue readingFolklorama – Mediterranean Style

Little Maria’s, Edmonton Street

Little Maria’s is now closed. There is a new restaurant there, called This Little Place, and from what I gather the menu is very similar to the old menu at Little Maria’sIt’s been a couple of weeks since I’ve posted.
