Updated: Sadie’s Diner Toronto

Updated: Sadie’s Diner Toronto  Sadly, Sadie’s Diner closed after we moved back to Australia! I wish I’d had those perogies one more time…   I have a mild obsession with fried tofu. Golden, nuggety chunks of tofu, fried lightly in oil are indeed a thing of beauty. Any time I post photos on social media […]

Updated: Banh Mi Boys Toronto

Updated: Banh Mi Boys Toronto I had serious cravings for steamed bao from Banh Mi Boys during our four month road trip across America and Canada. Four months is an awfully long time to crave food.

Acer Restaurant Toronto Airport

Acer Restaurant Toronto Airport I love airports! Now, I realise I may be very alone in feeling this way – Airports can be stressful and sad places. Saying goodbye to my family in Australia and using LAX as a layover to Canada manages to hit peak stress and sadness in one trip! But my average […]

One King West Hotel Toronto

One King West Hotel Toronto We had one night left in Toronto before our long-haul flight to Thailand, via a quick layover at an ungodly hour in Hong Kong. We wanted somewhere close to the AirBnB apartment we’d been staying in for the past four weeks, so we didn’t have a nightmare with our suitcases. […]

Dinosaur Provincial Park Alberta

Dinosaur Provincial Park Alberta This time, my lack of adventurousness is pretty lame-o. For our Grand Canyon visit, I’d torn my hamstring so we had to take it easy.
