I’ve been exposed to the world of bourbon by our awesome host of the evening, Matt Jones. This dude has a vault full of facts and tidbits about Jim Beam, Knob Creek, and Basil Haydens! The event was hosted at the fun and eclectic space of The Mule on King William Street. Chef Matt Johnny prepared a southern feast complimenting the roots of our bourbon drinks.Read More »

It’s finally here! Mezcal TNT‘s lil bro served up some tasty dishes this past weekend during their soft opening. Located just downstairs, Uno Mas has the same atmosphere and serves tapas and pintxos. What are those, you ask? They are small dishes of appetizers and snacks that are meant to be shared with the table, which means eating family-style! The space is a little larger, filled with wooden high tops and industrial bar stools. Beautiful graphic murals liven up the cave-like space, along with authentic photographs and paintings in ornate and decorative frames. The bar sits at the back of the restaurant, showing off their collection of unique drinking vessels and liquors. I gotta say, their washrooms are pretty cute too!

Ever since they popped up on my Twitter feed, I’ve been waiting to try out their menu. Also, when Chanry mentioned they had raclette, it was over. I was going to put in 110% to be their first customer or make it to their soft opening. Since we’re such dedicated foodies, we made it to both. Chanry, Sid, and I went to their first #SundaySocial, then a couple days later, Matt joined us at their soft opening.
Watch the video to get a better look at the restaurant! Sweet vibes and nostalgic hip hop. I loved our dining experience from beginning to end. Congrats Chef Manny on another adventure!
3 Tapas Recipe with Espuna Tapas Essentials!
Summer is here and we only have a few months of beautiful weather before it all goes downhill. So this calls for a lot of potlucks, BBQs, and impromptu backyard dinner parties. Sometimes I just want to throw together easy appetizers without having to use too much brain power trying to be creative. Cured meats have always been a crowd pleaser. Pair it with some cheese or fruits and everybody will be impressed. An easy go-to is the charcuterie board – lay out a variety of cured meats, pate, specialty cheeses, crackers, and fruits! It looks beautiful and your guests won’t hesitate to pick at it.Read More »
