1 Jan, 2014  |  by Yuli Scheidt

Normally here on Friday Foodie Five I try to bring you some of the best stuff I’ve seen and heard online during the week. But I have to tell you, we here on the Toronto Squad have been working hard for a long time on something and we need to share. For what feels like months, but has really only been a few weeks, Ama, Megan and I have been busy planning and co-curating an open call group art show…

Cafe Bar Pasta Serves Up Authentic Italian in DuWest

11 Nov, 2013  |  by Yuli Scheidt

    Originally posted to Ama’s twice-weekly column on Toronto is Awesome. Cafe Bar Pasta is exactly what it sounds like: an authentic Italian restaurant serving espresso during the days and beautiful pasta and wine at night. This gorgeous space opened by Tom Bielecki in the regenerated area of Dundas West has great splashes of red, white and black all on the walls. It’s eye-catching and visually appealing.   A private dining room in the wine cellar doubles as a…

FGFS Shoves it Down their Pie Hole!

10 Oct, 2013  |  by Ama Scriver

Guys, I have a little secret to tell you.  As a meat lover: vegan food can be good. It’s scary but it’s true.  I came to realize this as I became an avid reader of long-time Fat Girl Food Squad friend Dave Lock’s veggie food recipe blog  “Shove it Down Your Pie Hole”.  Each and every time he would post different recipes to his Facebook and to his respective blog, I felt somewhat inspired about what veggie and vegan cooking could…

OH HAI FRIENDLY READERS OF FGFS! So as you may or may not know, THICK & JUICY WORD is happening tomorrow (Friday September 27, 2013) at Scout’s Honour. Did we mention it is free?

Dundas Park Kitchen Bringing Comfort Food Home

8 Aug, 2013  |  by Ama Scriver

Over the past few months, a stretch of new restaurants have opened along Dundas West that have been offering healthy, grab and go choices.  One such place is the Dundas Park Kitchen, which nestled right beside the Belljar Cafe. I first came into contact with owners Alex Tso and Melanie Harris after they offered up an old espresso machine (on Facebook) from the old Portuguese restaurant they were refurbishing to make their own.  My partner ended up obtaining the machine…
