Ramen shops have been around in Toronto for a while, but it was only when Kinton opened back in May 2012 did I feel that the game was truly on.
Momofuku. Saturday lunch. No lines. No wait. I could barely believe it. Still, I would not look this gift horse in the mouth!
Nothing overly fancy, but all solid breakfast options done well. Lots of space, reservations, and coffee refills seal the deal.
We know that pretty much everyone is open New Year’s Eve, but what about New Year’s Day? Outside of hotel restaurants and Chinatown, here’s a list I compiled of decent brunch and dinner eats for January 1, 2012.
For my first meal back on Swiss soil, I opted to have lunch at a Michelin-starred restaurant: Le Chat Botté at the hotel Beau Rivage. Framed by an intensely blue sky of a sunny spring day, the blindingly white and stately hotel faces Lake Geneva and the ever-familliar Jet d’Eau. A fitting start to my trip.
Since the spring, Porchetta & Co has declared a soft-shell Saturday every few weeks or so. On-offer: a delicious sandwich of panko-crusted and fried soft-shell crab.
With the humidex bumping temperatures up to a cool 48°C, this might not have been the best day to venture outside for eats. But I left my air-conditioned sanctuary and braved the hot winds to see what this La Carnita pop-up taco shop was all about.
The colourful and tasty Tuscan bean salad (siding the Pavarotti sandwich) at Fabbrica.
