Shōtō's multi-course dinner offering is only available Tuesday to Thursday. You sit at high stools in the open kitchen and watch the cooks prepare and plate. The serving begins as soon as you are seated with an amuse selection. Highlights from the October 8th 10-course tasting menu:

Mackerel with fennel, shiso and green chili.

A kid-friendly organic food restaurant like Fresh in the west end? It is real, and it is called Thrive Organic. Located in Long Branch right on the Lakeshore, Thrive features a delicious menu that is 90% organic with fair-trade and local organic ingredients.

The house burger is a grain and nut patty on a sprouted bun with chipotle sauce, sautéed mushrooms, caramelized onions, cheddar cheese and tomatoes:

The BUDDHA bowl features baby spinach, micro-greens, carrots, onions, mango, cilantro, peanuts, black sesame seeds with a tahini/camu dressing:

The Longevity salad is filled with spinach, avocado, goji berries, red onion, goat cheese, sprout mix, sunflower seeds, hemp seeds, with an acai/maca dressing:

Like the Fresh chain of restaurants (which I love) Thrive has an amazing selection of fresh juices and superfood booster smoothies, as well as organic beer and wine:

Unlike Fresh, Thrive has a section on the menu for children with kiddie rice bowls, wraps and burritos. The atmophere is comfortable, casual and there is live music on Tuesday nights. Rosie :)

Until now the best non-processed high quality burgers in this area were available at Woody's. Now that the Burger's Priest has arrived, there are more options for burgers made with ultra premium beef. Here is the Priest, which is two patties with cheese and secret sauce:

Here is the Priest with the "Option" on top: two roasted portabello mushrooms, breaded and deep fried.

There are locations of The Burger's Priest all over Toronto and the GTA now. If you visit their website, you can access the Secret Menu if you answer a skill-testing question. Rosie :)

Absolutely outstanding. I love David Chang. If you don't have a lot of time, do this. Start with the pork buns, which have hoisin, scallion and cucumber:

Then order the momofuku ramen with pork belly and shoulder, fish cake and egg. The egg in this bowl... it is what all eggs should hope to have happen to them.

Ontario pork from Kunan Farm. Menu changes daily. An absolute must-visit. If you live in the downtown core, noodle bar now delivers within an hour. Rosie :)

We had fish tacos from the Rancho Relaxo Food Truck at Lakeshore Mardi Gras this weekend. We also saw 54-40 perform a live show under the stars. Both the tacos and the band were amazing. Love summer. Rosie :)
