Aragvi ~ 832 Sheppard W ~ (416) 792-2613

When I read that Aragvi was “the only authentic Georgian restaurant in Ontario,” I knew I had to give it a try. Now, I’ll admit that there was some minor concern about how adventurous some of the food might be for a group of my friends and family with different tastes. Let me tell you, this place delivers on a number…

Holiday Lunch at Eesti Maja ~ 958 Broadview ~ (416) 466-8906

It being the holiday season, I have been on the lookout of a festive lunch for the past couple of weeks. Turns out, I had to look no further than my kid’s daycare to find one. Until very recently, I had no idea that The Estonian House on Broadview served food. Their café has completely…

Some of my fondest memories as a child revolved around my Grandmother’s dinner table. She brought her recipes from Gdansk to Kapuskasing, and I think it’s safe to say that all sides of my extended family ate well when we visited Granny Urbas. Needless to say, the bar has always been set pretty high when…
