Managing Momofuku's Noodle Bar

Momofuku. Saturday lunch. No lines. No wait. I could barely believe it. Still, I would not look this gift horse in the mouth!

Laksa from One2 Snacks

Good Laksa in Toronto is hard to find – and it’s non-existant in downtown Toronto. But there are gems and my top pick is One2 Snacks. Their rendition is full of tofu, fish balls, shrimp, and chicken loaded with perfect… Continue Reading →
