I was enjoying my walk down Yonge and Bloor street today till I had to be smacked into the world of ill-fitting attire by a fellow Torontonian.

Skinny, white jeans on an out of shape guy is just so unattractive. The stuffed up back pockets that hang low on the back, UGH!

What are people thinking, this guy woke up today put these clothes on and thought to himself “Damn, I look good today!”, and that makes me wanna shake this dude so violently!

I feel better that I vented this out.

GASP!!!

La Bruschetta

1 Feb

Mouth watering home-made bruschetta

I recently went a little family owned Italian restaurant on St Clair west, just west of Dufferin street, I totally fell in love with the charm and amazing staff and of course the food. I went to taste their set menu for the winterlicious and thought it was worth the $15 spent.

One of the perks for this place is their complimentary plate of bruschetta and hot peppers in olive oil, AMAZING!!!! The staff are very nice and the place have been around for almost 20 years and they are very well-informed about their food and how it’s made, I hate it when you ask the waiter about how something is cooked and all you hear is “uhhhh, uhhhh, I’m not sure…”.

Since they are a family run business make sure you check out their work hours before you head over for your Italian feast and make sure you make reservation, since the restaurant is not that big and it gets very busy.

Keep an eye on their wall of fame and old plates with famous people’s notes for the owners about their experience at La Bruschetta, It’s pretty cool, there are plates from 1983 on that wall.

I took this picture at 3am on my balcony. I had to suffer through -20 degree weather and wind to get a good shot, but it was all worth it. Happy winter 2010!
