Maya Bay ~ 252 Carlton St ~ (416) 924-8989

Maya Bay is a hidden gem in Cabbagetown with a large menu of hard-to-find Thai classics.  The dining room is very laid-back and unrefined with lots of window seats.  That said, the dishes are elevated enough to be considered finer dining.  We’re told that head chef Prasopchok Trakulphat was an Iron Chef back in Bangkok. …

Dino’s Bakery ~ 2859 St Clair Ave E ~ (416) 436-4444

Friday pizza night with the girls has become quite the tradition in our household.  We’re always looking forward to the end of the week so we can suss-out a new spot and see it stacks up.  We’ve just found a hidden gem in the Woodbine Gardens/Topham Park neighbourhood of East York.  On this lesser-known stretch…
