MiKi Sushi ReportShareDownload20195

Main Street Unionville got a new Japanese / Korean restaurant this week! Mi Ki Sushi is brought to you by the same owners as Hub Sushi. They have a large variety of pressed and torched sushi, special rolls including lobster rolls (see photo with the lobster tail) as well as other hot dishes. Their rolls are really big and filling. I really liked their takoyaki (shown in the first picture). And they're generous with their yummy sauces. Thanks so much to @mikisushito for having me!!! And a big thank you to @fatninjabite and @michyeats for the invite! I'll be back to try some other things.

Health Update: Hey everyone! As you know, I was recently diagnosed with Moyamoya and had neurovascular surgery on the right side of my brain in Oct 2018. Now I'm having surgery on the left side on March 5. From what I've read, recovery from surgery on the left can be even more difficult and unpredictable, so I will be taking a break from food events and collaborations. Thanks so so much for all of the support! I hope to be back to the food scene soon! Until then, remember me as I was in this photo: funny, confident, and well fed. When this was taken, I was laughing about the weight I had gained from dating my now, also heavier, husband, @36ix9. The second photo was taken by said husband in Amsterdam at the Tulip Festival in May. How quickly things change. Take good care of yourselves. If you're still reading this, I've felt really lonely throughout this ordeal, because not many people understand brain injuries, let alone one as rare as Moyamoya. So please do me a huge favor and look up the term, invisible disabilities. Because well-intentioned (but misinformed) comments make us feel worse, misunderstood and pressured to meet unrealistic expectations. It also means that we constantly have to decide between just smiling/nodding (and dying a bit more inside) or educating others (which also sucks). Thanks so much for listening to me spread awareness! @braininjurytoronto

Jugemu ReportShareDownload24227

Tried cod testicle for the first time and although I really liked the mild flavour, the texture is not for me. But I love trying new things, so now I know, I don't like cod testicles, lol. I also got to try firefly squid for the first time, which are tiny squids that are absolutely delicious! These came as part of the chonburi (12 pieces of sushi set) at Jugemu. I really liked the variety of the sushi (better than Yasu and Tachi, in my opinion) and felt that the price was reasonable. I prefer the sushi rice from Tachi and the wasabi from Yasu, but Jugemu really excels with their marinated pieces. Reservations are a must. @jugemutoronto@zakkushioncarlton

The Chinese diner at New Kennedy Square plaza, Les Chateaux Restaurant, recently started offering Malaysian dishes. Like these curry beef brisket with roti and Penang style char kway teow. I really like their kway teow and I substituted the shrimp for beef. @chateauxrestaurant chateaurestaurant @newkennedysquare

 Carousel by @cookingwithalison with caption : "Love love love the Japanese white bamboo charcoal grilled skewers from Zakkushi! They now have two locations - on Carlto" at Zakkushi On Queen West - 1989292193080253295

Love love love the Japanese white bamboo charcoal grilled skewers from Zakkushi! They now have two locations - on Carlton and Queen West. My favorites include the Wagyu beef tongue (this is the Best thing ever), chicken wings, premium pork belly, and the yakioni (grilled rice ball with butter and soy sauce). All shown. They have two skewer sets available that are great deals - the kushi set and the premium kushi set (both are also shown). The premium set comes with Wagyu beef and Wagyu beef . The only problem with this place is the ordering system was having a lot of trouble receiving and tracking orders for our large group. Also, they will only split your bill up to 4 ways. So they can't do separate bills conveniently. As always, had a great time with my foodie family at this @foodiemob.toronto instameet! @zakkushionqueenwest

The absolute best dips for accompanying BBQ are at the new, Pujukan Korean BBQ! I couldn't get enough of their house made seasoning salt and their signature jalapeno sauce! Seriously, the best I've had from any Korean or Japanese BBQ restaurant. I love that the meat doesn't come pre-marinated or pre-seasoned. You control the seasonings. Pujukan is not an all you can eat, so you get a much higher quality of meat. I loved the pork variety. They give you fresh rosemary sprigs to rub onto the grill before you start cooking. If you order beef, they give you butter to melt on the grill as well. They also have a variety of side dishes like their delicious steamed eggs and spicy cold noodles (both shown). Thanks so much to @pujukankoreanbbq for having me! It was a fantastic meal! @foodiemob.toronto

Haida Sandwich ReportShareDownload12202

DEAL ALERT!!! Haida Sandwich serves fresh (nearly everything is made in house including the bread) Persian sandwiches. Show them this post between now and March 3, 2019 to buy one sandwich and get one FREE! There are over 100 locations around the world. Their first Toronto location is in North York and they have a new Richmond Hill location coming soon! They have cold & hot sandwiches, Mexican corn (shown), as well as pizza, pizza sandwiches, Persian sausage with melted cheese, smoothies, fruity malt drinks, and even dessert. I really liked the chicken and melted cheese sandwich (shown). And I don't eat a lot of cold cuts, but the Haida special was nice too! Don't live in North York or Richmond Hill? Haida Sandwich offers delivery within the GTA! Check out their app on their website. Thanks so much to @haidasandwichcanada and @jojoinstameets for having me!

At Kiu, they can serve your sushi and/or sashimi on a 9 foot wooden board that require at least two servers to bring it out. Perfect for large groups and special occasions! Our board was made up of an assortment of sashimi, torched sushi, and pressed sushi. Everything was absolutely delicious! Kiu is one of our favorite Japanese restaurants in Markham. Also shown is their ramen (my favorite in Markham), and their ebi (shrimp) appetizer. Service is great too! @kiurestaurant@downtownmarkham

Convenience ReportShareDownload16210

Throwback to the time I hung out in the bathroom at Convenience taking pictures with @nic_cago. We made poor @tofoodblogger take pictures of us taking pictures from the TV in the bar upstairs. Fun bar! Great crowd. I actually bought some candy from their convenience store (store front) too. Please forgive the footwear. I was tired af and wasn't about to put on heels for our food / bar crawl. @conveniencerestobar

For one week only starting on Feb 11, Tsujiri (North York location) is offering special, limited edition menu items in celebration of Valentine's Day! These new items are a fusion of French and Japanese: high tea plates with assorted sweets (shown), white chocolate mousse cake with a raspberry shell and hints of rose water (shown), and a white chocolate matcha mocha drink (hot or cold). Happy Valentine's Day, everyone! Thank you @tsujiri_toronto and @sumaiya.recs for having me! And thank you to @feedus.toronto for being my hand model! @tsujiri_canada@tsujiri_soba_bar

(Scroll right for food photos from one of my favorite Italian restaurants in Toronto - Noce Restaurant) This is Lenovo's new, hands-free Smart Display with Google Assistant! The most unique features can help you with your cooking. For example, find recipes, set timers, watch YouTube cooking videos, and have the device read out ingredients and instructions to you (scroll all the way to the right for a short video demonstration). Other features of the Lenovo Smart Display that will make your every day life easier include: control other smart home devices, check weather and traffic, set reminders, make lists, call or video chat people, stream music, YouTube videos or radio, etc. During the demonstration, we had a delicious meal at Noce. The dishes shown are: mortadella, Margherita cruda pizza, deep fried burrata and truffle ball, and olive ascolane. I love this restaurant! Thank you so much to @melissadimarco, @lenovo, and @nocetoronto for having me!

My Roti Place ReportShareDownload16164

My Roti Place makes my favorite spinach sauce roti (shown) in Toronto and now they have a new location in Parkdale! Also shown: Their delicious mango lassi. Be sure to check out their traditionally cooked (for 3 hours) butter masala chicken, butter makhani sauce, damn dirty chips, and creative alcoholic drinks menu as well! Thanks so much to @myrotiplace and @bpr_inc for having me at the grand opening media launch of the new location! I can't wait to come back!

Discovered my new favorite brunch place and it's in Markham! Elephant Grind Coffee executes their dishes better than any brunch place I've been to and I love that they don't sweeten their espresso or tea based drinks! Shown are the truffle and cream mushroom eggs benedict (which were my favorite and absolutely amazing), the perfectly crispy chicken and waffles (loved the waffles too), pancakes, cafe latte (which I loved), matcha latte (nice, light matcha flavour), and the chai latte (which was legit and not syrup based). They also have interesting Asian fusion dishes like the lap Cheong potato hash. I Highly recommend this place! Even their leftovers were delicious! Thank you so much to @elephantgrindcoffee and @dkloevents for having me! I can't wait to come back and try more of your dishes!

La Sani Grill ReportShareDownload34293

I love Pakistani food and recently tried some of the deep fried appetizers and grilled meat entrees from the original location of the chain, La Sani Grill. First of all, I have to tell you about their beef ribs. You can buy them by the rib and they are delicious! I'm really picky about ribs and BBQ sauce and I loved these! They're saucy, sticky, and fall off the bone tender. The sauce is an American-style BBQ sauce with hints of Pakistani/Indian spices and it's more sweet than tangy. This was my favorite dish by far. Other dishes that I really liked from La Sani Grill included: deep fried fish appetizer (fish pakora), butter chicken curry, chicken biryani, their signature mind chutney, tandoori chicken wings, and their butter chicken poutine. Be sure to check them out at any of their locations across the GTA (they also cater) and keep your eyes open in Ajax for their new buffet restaurant (coming soon)! Thank you so much to @lasanigrill and @sumaiya.recs for having me! It was such a feast!

Han Ba Tang ReportShareDownload12253

The absolute BEST Korean fusion cocktails are from Han Ba Tang! For example, it's the only place where we've seen makgulli (rice based alcohol) cocktails! Shown is the strawberry & banana makgulli. I also tried the sweet potato makgulli which comes with black sesame cereal powder that you can mix in. I liked both but the sweet potato one was my favorite because I love the comforting earthiness of the cereal mix. Both come with sprite that you can add to your drink if you want the carbonation and added sweetness. As you can see, each of these makgulli concoctions come in a huge bowl and are perfect for sharing. Han Ba Tang has a huge selection of fusion cocktails that are their own unique creations. All of the following are made in house just for their cocktails: 10 infused sojus, 1 infused bourbon, 1 infused rye, and 10 different types of flavoured syrup. The food at Han Ba Tang is awesome too! I'll be posting more from them over the next few weeks. Thank you sooo much to @hanbatang for the amazing food and drinks! A big special thank you to Hiro (manager) for always taking such good care of us. I love this place! @foodiemob.toronto

DEAL ALERT! To celebrate the launch of their new bubble tea menu (10 of China's favourite flavours), Golden Bubbles in Toronto is offering this deal until Feb 11: Buy one large egg waffle and receive one bubble tea drink for 1/2 price! I Loved the mango green tea with jasmine jelly (I ordered 0 sweet since the jelly is sweet and it was perfect for me). You can really taste the natural tea and jasmine! The jelly was delicious too. It's made fresh every day, and may sell out fast! Golden Bubbles uses yellow or brown tapioca pearls. Also shown: cheese waffle and pink blossom with bubbles (oolong tea with chocolate mousse). Swipe right to see my custom creation (milk tea egg waffle with milk tea ice cream, caramel drizzle, and icing sugar). The milk tea egg waffle was cooked perfectly with crispy edges. Thanks so much to @goldenbubblescanada for having me! And thank you to @eatwithtoronto for organizing!

Throw back to the time I discovered my new favorite canned coffee drink - Illy's caffe latte (Italian espresso style coffee drink with milk). Absolutely perfect balance of flavours, served cold and on ice. Illy was one of the food and drink partners of the tiff event, Out There with Melissa DiMarco. I got to meet Ms. DiMarco's parents and they were absolutely lovely! I also loved the swagbag that we received! It included @stonewallkitchen blueberry jam, @vossworld sparkling water, and @yardleylondonuk lavender soap, etc. Loved it all!!! @melissadimarco@illy_coffee
