In Pictures: Sushi-Making at Ebisu, Toronto + Get your Free Ramen

Watching Jiro Dreams of Sushi just once did not prepare me for this moment. Be real delicate with the rice, or in my case, the sushi will end up clumped and mushed together with each bite. With the guidance of Chef Tatuka Matsuda at Ebisu, we were each able to take part in forming sushi in…

The Final Brunch of 2016: Lisa Marie

  I haven’t loved brunch enough this year. I can only recall venturing downtown voluntarily to try a new brunch spot four times this year (really – Fat Pasha and now-closed Wind Up).

A Foodies Dream: Zomato X FoodismTO

As rich and well-weaven Toronto is in embracing and spreading the latest food news, I have felt that there has been one part missing in the city’s ever-sharing food scene. I enjoy the flick through US foodie mags both online and physically, but, beyond the recipes, the magazines don’t entirely click with my lifestyle. Here to…
