The Cooking Diaries: Crispy Coconut Shrimp

Crispy Coconut Shrimp

One of my favourite things to get at one of the seafood restaurants we frequent (for $1 Oyster Thursdays! Yummm) is their coconut shrimp. I was craving for it this week and my boyfriend wanted us to cook something as well on his day off. We decided to try out this recipe to see if we can find a similar recipe… and success! We found one.


From Alice Fazooli’s to Scaddabush: Our First Look


Welcome the new Italian Kitchen & Bar in town, Scaddabush!

Scadda-what? Apparently, the word is synonymous to “a little bit of this, a little bit of that”. From freshly made mozzarella cheese and made-to-order pastas, there is a little bit of everything to check out at this new concept restaurant. Out with the old, and in with the new. Well… maybe not everything old. [They kept their Tiramisu, but now it’s presented differently. Mmm, tiramisu.]


Summerlicious TO 2013: Bloke & 4th

Last week, we checked out Bloke & 4th for this year’s Summerlicious with some friends. If you don’t already know, Toronto has two great events for “foodies” every year during summer and winter for a select period of time. A nice selection of restaurants offer Prix Fixe menus for lunch and/or dinner and is a great time to go around and discover the wonderful cuisine this city has to offer. We haven’t been to Bloke before, but had a pleasant first experience at this resto-lounge.
