Barra Fion

Tucked away in a Burlington strip mall off of Guelph Line, Barra Fion is honestly a hidden gem. Judging from the outside, I didn’t expect the food or the space to be anywhere near what I experienced that day! So, for real, don’t judge a book by its cover.  Read More »

Uno Mas

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!

Cheese Board

Marben Restaurant

The restaurant sits on a street with a few of Toronto’s top advertising agencies. It’s a great location with plenty of parking around. A chalkboard sidewalk sign was the only indication that I was at the right restaurants, it’s still not hard to find though. They have a beautiful patio surrounded by short concrete walls and a dimly lit bar and dining area. The decor was a mix of rustic and authentic pieces with modern furniture and fixtures. The first thing I noticed was the friendly and attentive staff. The Zomato team (Jimena and Justin) chose an awesome restaurant to host a foodie dinner!Read More »
