Bunner’s Bakery Toronto

Bunner’s Bakery Toronto When you don’t eat dairy or eggs, trying to get a cake or dessert can be a minefield in a normal baker’s or grocery store. Now, imagine that difficulty, and being intolerant to gluten. And I know that it’s popular on the internet these days to be scathing of those folk who […]

Updated: Sadie’s Diner Toronto

Updated: Sadie’s Diner Toronto  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 of fried tofu, even the most hardcore of my meat-eating friends comment on how delicious it looks. Even my Irish […]

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. Particularly when you have days of eating the same meal. Or days where your only options are from fast […]

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. That’s fair enough.  Torn hamstrings are pretty serious things. During our visit to Lake Agnes, it was a bizarre inner ear thing that afflicted me. For our […]

Butter Chicken Roti Toronto

Butter Chicken Roti Toronto Canada Sometimes I think the gods are just having a laugh when people keep thinking I’m asking for bacon when I say vegan. On the first occasion, I was at an Indian buffet restaurant in Hamilton. The majority of the dishes had every ingredient listed, but a couple of tasty looking […]

Lake Agnes Canada

Lake Agnes Canada Last week, we posted about our serene walk around Lake Louise. After we checked out Lake Louise, we also did the “moderate” walk up to Mirror Lake, Agnes Lake, and to Agnes Lake Teahouse. Let me describe some of my symptoms to you during this walk: Dizzy spells, to the point of tipping over […]

Medieval Times Toronto Canada

Medieval Times Toronto Canada When I was in California with my sister last year, I described Medieval Times as good looking men with long hair and beards, riding horses. And accordingly, it seems rather popular with bachelorette/hen’s parties. Medieval Times describes itself as an exciting, family-friendly dinner attraction inspired by an 11th century feast and […]

Senator Restaurant Toronto

Senator Restaurant Toronto  When you eat vegan food, diners can be hit or miss. Most often, a complete miss. And yet, I have a strange fascination with them. Perhaps it’s because the 50s style diner is not particularly prevalent in Australia. Perhaps it’s because I spent too much time watching the Winchester brothers in the […]

Lake Louise Canada

Lake Louise Canada Almost everyone we know who’d been to the Canadian Rockies insisted we had to go to Lake Moraine instead of, or as well as Lake Louise. Sadly, there was no space to park our RV when we got to Lake Morraine, so it’s on the to do list for another trip. And […]
