Laika

Laika – More than just a bar

The 411

laika-outside-smallOver time I get emails telling me of people’s favourite places and I make it a point to eventually check them out. Laika was one of those places. I had heard some good stuff from a few people and what I had read online was rather positive as well but for the life of me I could not figure out where this places was, and I have been up and down almost every inch of St Laurent for years without having seen it. It wasn’t until I was reviewing another place in the area that I actually looked across the street and had an “Ah Ha” moment. Now that I knew what it looked like I was even more curious to check it out.

Insomnia

Insomnia – A place that will wake you up

The 411

insomnia-toronto-outside-smallOn a recent trip to Toronto I visited my friends for the weekend for some much needed out-of-town partying and after a long weekend of partying there are 2 things needed: a nice 5k run by the water and Brunch. I love doing brunch in Toronto because it allows me to explore an undiscovered landscape of pancakes, and eggs. I pretty much know of most places in Montreal but know of very few in Toronto and the couple I stayed with always introduces me to a new spot every time I come, so brunch in Toronto is always a delicious experience.

Bistrot La Fabrique

La Fabrique – Where meal ideas are made daily

The 411

bistrot-la-fabrique-outside-smallA while ago a friend of mine told me about this place called La Fabrique where the interior is almost as interesting as the food. With its constantly changing menu and interesting and funky approach to cooking combining different flavours and styles, I felt that this would be an interesting place to check out their brunch as well as the main courses. Now, brunch is only offered once a week on Sundays and this makes it difficult for me since I don’t always have time for brunch on Sunday but somehow it happened this week and I had an opening. Unfortunately, it came a day after an article in the gazette had appeared about the place (I knew I shouldn’t have waited all that time). Not to be deterred by not being one of the first ones to write about I was still committed to going and off I went in search of a culinary adventure.

Ihop

International House of Pancakes – visiting a legend

The 411

ihops-exterior-smallOn the way back from a trip to Cali a long plane ride and a lack of medical sedatives made for me being in need of sleep and food. When I don’t eat I get painfully cranky so in order to avoid an incident at the border I decided that I need to eat right away and I really wanted breakfast food. So having landed in Burlington we asked around for information on where to get breakfast. I asked at the airport, the parking lot and even in a grocery store with no luck. Most people didn’t know of any place to eat breakfast on a weekday early in the morning and when one person suggested McDonalds I almost cried but I think the emotion was masked by disgust, which I think she saw on my face (sorry I’m cranky when I’m hungry). Then, as if a sign from above, someone suggested Ihop’s and pointed us in the right direction.
