Mitzi's Sister
      It's my goal to get through all of my Toronto eats before the end of the year, so at least I can say it only took me 6 or so months. Ha. Anyway. Both Mitzi's Cafe …

Plate 38
      I think it’s difficult to review a place that doesn’t WOW you or make you filled with rage. It’s the eateries that hit the mark of just above mediocre, that …

Dog Haus

Poutini's House of Poutine

        There needs to be a twelve-step program for weaning oneself off of Groupon. Until then, I am enjoying my addiction merrily. The latest food related Groupon I purchased …
reviewed Radhika Modern Indian Bistro. March 24, 2011

I have been a customer of Radhika’s for years. I may or may not have first patronized them at their original home in Alhambra, but my memory fails me and it wasn’t until their move to Shopper’s …
