Cafe D’Afrique Ethiopian & Eritrean Restaurant (African Food) – Part 2/2

By

I still enjoyed the food and it offered excellent value, so mediocre dishes were easily overlooked, but it was the cultural experience that really made it. I strongly recommend coming with a group (minimum 4) because African food is best shared and meant to be enjoyed family style.

Cafe D’Afrique Ethiopian & Eritrean Restaurant (African Food) – Part 1/2

By

I discovered Cafe D’Afrique back in May when I was trying to find an off-the-beaten-path family owned restaurant rarely talked about. Their current standard is good enough to get some repeat customers, but they have more to bring to the table to get the word-of-mouth and line up at the door.

This intimate boutique hotel is no secret, and it’s ideal for couples or families who want to really relax and getaway. The Nita Lake view is up there along with Rainbow Park, North Arm Farms, and Lost Lake, and if you are not staying here then at least visit for one dining experience.

The Parker (Vegetarian Restaurant) – Part 3/3

By

According to their website, “The Parker generates less than one pound of waste in a month!” I appreciate their efforts and it is something I admire, but in the end it is a restaurant so the food has to deliver. I wouldn’t say the menu was hit and miss because everything was generally good, but maybe not at its full potential.

The Parker (Vegetarian Restaurant) – Part 2/3

By

I know what you might be thinking… who dragged you here? Yes, I am a meat eater (not necessarily a carnivore, but I enjoy eating meat), however I actually like vegetables – a lot too. I just rarely order vegetarian dishes when I’m dining out because they often sound uninspired or offer little value, until now.

The Parker (Vegetarian Restaurant) – Part 1/3

By

I knew I was going for vegetarian food, but the menu read like an allergy friendly menu, which is a different market altogether. Most of the items had either a “V” for “vegan” and/or “GF” for “gluten free” and I think the format of the menu and style of restaurant could benefit from readjusting. The food is beautiful with new chef, Curtis Luk, but it needs more time.

By

The area consists of long time businesses and the market is full of iconic institutions selling meats, cheese, seafood, spices and produce. It would be a shame to visit Toronto and miss out on this since the city prides itself on diversity. Here is my self guided foodie tour of Kensington Market.
