A Penniless girl, bad dates & plenty of oysters

I've got a pretty face & a pretty extensive urban spoon
wish list...
We all know that getting what you want in life can be tough. Which is why I've decided to let someone else finance my dreams. My dream? To eat in pretty restaurants without costing me a penny. You had me at Elk Tartare, lost me at chin strap. Follow me to learn who I screw over, bang and love as I navigate Toronto’s diners, drive-ins & dives.

Prove that you love me and buy the next round

"The world needs more Traditional British Pubs"…I couldn’t disagree with you more. If you are looking for some hearty scotch eggs & a ploughman’s lunch in fiddler’s courtyard then please look further. There are no fucking firkins on this hit list. McLobster? Hell yes. And by hell yes, I mean a big no. Would I like to Jack it up? Absolutely not. The Old Spaghetti Factory? Kill me. Or rather suffocate me with that awful complimentary bread they bring you. And YES I have been to Salad King, now can we please move on to bigger and better things? Surf & turfs at Harbour 60 and restaurants with absolutely no signage is what I’m talking about. A little back alley tapas, a plate of carpaccio, and some caviar in the back of a joint that doubles as a barber shop. I’m saying yes to the charcuterie plate & no to the garlic bread.
