I thought it might be best to get a happy post up, seeing as life is good, even with a bit of my mojo being out of wack. Annnnd it’s been a while since I posted any good food! And there is lots of good food in Toronto (even if I’m not eating as much of it as I used to! Sad Face!)
It’s been a while, yes, so bear with me as I post everything I haven’t posted these past few months. There were weekends I didn’t even take out my camera – which sometimes resulted in missing out on sharing but sometimes I like to give my shoulder a break and sometimes it’s just nice to eat something that isn’t all that remarkable but familiar and comforting and the cold months of January and February have been good for that.
First up? North of Brooklyn! We’ve been wanting to try this itty bitty place since forevs and finally on a cold and drizzly day in December we did. It was good. The crust was crispy and chewy and charred just so. I’d eat there again, even with Jason who would eat 6 slices to my one and make me a very jealous girl.
Elizabeth had been wanting to try Universal Grill for a bit until we did last month. Empty when we walked in but extra busy as we left, it showed potential for being a great local place to eat (It’s a bit awkward to get to if you don’t live near by.) The food was exactly what we wanted – even if it was just granola and fruit for me.
Oh look, this was the weekend where it reached 14? 16? Crazy really. And really beautiful. How about a repeat please?
What better way to celebrate a birthday than with nails by Pinky’s ?! Very cute, Very affordable.
This was probably the highlight of January – Rose and Sons. Amazing food, and amazing service (not usually a combo seen in Toronto.) It’s small, and cramped, and I’m sure they’d give you a smack if you got picky with your food but guys, why would you! We had the following:
- Griddled Brie Cornbread; brisket, fried egg, maple syrup, chili sauce
- PLB Special Melt; bacon, sausage, pickle, fried onions, cherry jam
- Eggs-3; schmaltz hash, toast, bacon or sausage or pork chop
We wanted ramen last week but that fell through when the restaurant we aimed for couldn’t seat us. So we walked over and found us a gem in Elle M’a Dit on Baldwin. It’s quiet and unassuming the food was really lovely. Go there for a quiet place to catch up where they’ll let you sit for hours over french pressed coffee.
Now I’ll sign off before my stomach starts to grumble ;)
