A little about Jess…

  • Born and raised in Vancouver, now living in Toronto
  • I love travelling and have a passion for food…eating it, not cooking it!
  • While most posts are Toronto-based, I blog about my eats while travelling too. Check The List for a comprehensive listing
  • I’m not a professional food critic or food expert. The posts are based on my personal opinions and my goal is to simply share my experiences (both the good and bad) with everyone
  • Meals or products provided for free will be disclosed but the opinions (both positive and negative) are my own
  • I’m always looking for new places to try, so feel free to leave a recommendation!

A little about Mike…

  • Jess’ hungry boyfriend husband
  • He likes to joke that he should start a blog called “where Mike paid”
  • The person behind the website


  • 5 stars (Outstanding): Some of the best food I’ve eaten… an amazing experience.
  • 4 stars (Excellent): Very memorable. Fantastic food. Recommended!
  • 3 stars (Good): Solid food but only worthwhile if you’re in the area. Not worth travelling far for.
  • 2 stars (Fair): Not bad but nothing memorable
  • 1 star (Poor): A bad experience and definitely not recommended

    Loved meeting you at the NOKA Tasting Event! What a FUN “about” page! Mike and Mark need to team up while we’re busy taking photos and writing!

    Hi Jess & Mike, love your blog, but is it possible to make a link to fb too instead of only twitter?

    What do you think of a short road trip to Barrie? Fabulous fun foodie event on May 8th!

    • Jess (Reply) on Monday 25, 2011

      Thanks for the invite but unfortunately I don’t think I’d be able to make it to Barrie unless it was a weekend 🙁

    Hi Jess, How can I get in touch with you directly via email maybe?

    Hi there it’s my birthday this weekend and I was wondering if you knew of a good (not so pricy) tapinyaki place. Thank you !!

    • Jess (Reply) on Monday 25, 2011

      Hi Marion, happy early birthday! I’ve never actually had teppanyaki in Toronto, so unfortunately I don’t have a recommendation for you. If you’re interested in another cuisine, I could try to help you out 🙂
