[Toronto] Ja Bistro

Image Hosted by ImageShack.usLocation Review
222 Richmond Street West
Toronto, Ontario

After hearing so much rave for this modern Japanese eatery, I finally took a visit to Ja Bistro (@JaBistro222) in the financial district of Toronto. Boasting a menu of ingredients shipped from all over the world and delicately crafted sushi by Chef Koji, the place has racked up a list of loyal customers as well as red carpet celebrities including Scarlett Johansson during TIFF!

[Santa Barbara] La Super-Rica Taqueria

Image Hosted by ImageShack.usLocation Review
622 North Milpas Street
Santa Barbara, CA 93103
(805) 963-4940

For anyone thinking of doing the Pacific Coast Highway drive in California, Santa Barbara is a must see destination. Aside from the historic Santa Barbara County Courthouse being a beautiful landmark of architecture with an amazing view a top the tower, it also has some of the best Mexican food! A quick search on Google returned top Mexican restaurants and eateries, and so one afternoon Rob and I picked out La Super-Rica to try out. I mean when Julia Child proclaims this to be her favourite Santa Barbara spot, there's really no reason not to.

[Los Angeles] The Griddle Cafe

Image Hosted by ImageShack.usLocation Review
7916 Sunset Blvd
Hollywood, CA 90046
(323) 874-0377

Located in West Hollywood, The Griddle Cafe (@thegriddlecafe) is sure to be something special if you're looking to have a memorable meal. While they have an attractive lunch menu of sandwiches, salads, and burgers, my four friends and I came here for one thing, and one thing only: the all-day breakfast menu. Notorious for their one-of-a-kind pancake creations, one can satisfy both breakfast AND dessert cravings with flapjacks and/or french toast covered in chocolate chips, butterscotch, Nutella, Oreos, or even punpkin pie filling.

[GIVEAWAY] Steamwhistle's Winter Craft Beer Festival

It seems like mother nature is not letting us forget how cold it can be this winter. Seriuosly, power outages, frozen tree branches, the mythical frost quakes?! Brutal. But as Canadians, we probably take pride in that. If there's two things Canadians know a thing or two about, it's how to do winter and beer right.

And so it would seem only fitting that Steamwhistle's (@SteamWhistle)first ever outdoor Winter Craft Beer Festival is taking place during one of Canada's coldest winter in the past decade. Are you Canadian enough to brave the cold? If so, free up your calendar, because this festival you don't want to miss.

[Los Angeles] Roscoe's House of Chicken and Waffles

Image Hosted by ImageShack.usLocation Review
1514 N Gower St
Los Angeles, CA 90028

I didn't know what I was in for when I stepped foot into this dimly lit establishment of Roscoe's House of Chicken and Waffles (@roscoesofficial). With no windows, and barely any light coming in from the cracks of the doors, this almost felt like a secret underground society for fried chicken of some sort. Perhaps it was just this location of Roscoe's chain of restaurants, but at some point I couldn't help but ponder: why did most people recommend this as a "must eat" for a visit to Los Angeles?
