My article on the Best Japanese Food in Toronto

Recently, I’ve been spending a lot of time working on a very important article for me. Japanese food has always been my favourite, and while this list that I’ve written for is by no means  exhaustive, I do think it has some of the best Japanese cuisine you can find in the city.  Continue reading

It be I, The Other Annie, your newest edition to the crew of the Piggin’ Out Ship : )
About me, briefly: pirate speak aside, I enjoy seeking and devouring food loot, cracking lame jokes, dipping my hands in home edible alchemy (aka cooking), and sharing all the wisdom I’ve acquired over the years in above fields with you young padawans of foods.

Winterlicious: Have YOU made your Reservations?

I’ve already made a post about Winterlicious before, but in case you missed it the first time, some of Toronto’s best restaurants are offering great deals to sample their awesome cuisine.

Has anyone got any stand out plans for Winterlicious? I’d love to hear about them! Or better yet — go, TAKE PICTURES, and SHOW THEM to me. Food porn aficionados unite!

I of course, have picked out my restaurant. I want to go to all of them, but we simply cannot. But perhaps, together, we can at least tell stories of one another’s experiences, and see which places were worth it… and which restaurants were not!

Good day.
