Feeding Schedule In Toronto: Your Guide To The City’s Best Eats

Friday, June 18, 2010

Toronto truly is a city of summer beauty. Actually, most places bathe in brilliance when the sun is shining.

To me me this city, like all cities, is […]

El Almacen: A Cure For My Post-Travel Blues

Thursday, June 17, 2010

I might come off as politically disinclined when I say (or in this case, write) that there is one meeting that interests me the most: the Madrid Fusion International Gastronomic Summit. Someone’s talking my language. My tummy grumbles in response. Imagine the […]

There’s something to be said about innovation. Even if it’s as cheesy as Jim Carrey in the Cable Guy, at least Medieval Times is not your average, run-of-the-mill eatery. This concept isn’t just limited to tights-wearing actors of the round table, interestingly, themed and concept restaurants are sprouting up all over the world. Over at […]

There Is A Coffee Heaven, And They Call It Vienna

Thursday, April 15, 2010

Who would of thought that a bag of questionable pellets, originally thought to be camel dung, could transform a city into a coffee culture hub? Neither did the Viennese, nor myself, until The Toronto Star let me in on the secret. With over 300 coffee shops, Vienna has mastered the art of the bean (I’m wondering if […]

When In Rome . . . Eating Like The Locals

Wednesday, April 14, 2010

Street food is always going to be a reflection of a city’s true culture. Not only does it give you a glimpse into a local’s diet, but the vendors offer an amazing ambience as well, even the crusty ones. For example, Torontonians and New Yorkers thrive on “street meat” — in Toronto it has been […]

Let Them Eat Vegetables! (In Buenos Aires)

Thursday, March 11, 2010

It might not be a part of the European Union, but Buenos Aires has the ambience to contend with the rest.
