|Le Chien Noir||69 Brock St||Simple and delicious French bistro influenced food. There's a pretty terrace in the back during the summer.||August 2009|
|Fifteen||15 Westland Place, N1 7LP||Cloud-like gnocchi. Delectable buffalo mozzarella. Ethereal panna cotta. Simple ingredients at their peak, and the sum was greater than the parts.||April 2006, September 2010|
|The Orangery||Kensington Palace Gardens||A lovely afternoon tea in pretty surroundings.||April 2006|

|Benoit||20 rue Saint-Martin||Wonderful, classic Paris bistro with outstanding service.||September 2010|
|Bisto Tatum||1084 rue St-Jean||A good place for coffee and breakfast pastries. Avoid the cakes!||Sept 2008|
|Restaurant Paris-Brest||590 Grande Allée E||A nice bistro, which shines even more for being surrounded by horrible tourist-fare.||Sept 2008|

|Pho Hung||350 Spadina Ave||Good, fast, cheap. Yes, it really is all three.||Oct 2007|
|Marcello's||1163 St Clair Avenue W.||A friendly neighbourhood Italian restaurant. They use a lot of salt, but their pizzas and pastas are delicious. We suspect they've got an Italian granny making the tiramisu.||Oct 2007|
|Go Fish||1504 West 1st Ave||Awesome fish shack. Try the fish tacos or the salmon fish-n-chips.||Aug 2008|
|JapaDog||Smithe & Burrard||Japanese fusion hotdogs. I've never seen a hotdog stand with a staff of four and a line-up like this one. It was worth the wait.||Aug 2008|
|Octopus's Garden||1995 Cornwall Ave||Modern sushi that was really fabulous.||Aug 2008|
|Sutton Place Hotel||845 Burrard Street||The afternoon tea is delightful. While the tea was nothing amazing, the dainty towers of tea sandwiches, pastries, and delicious bites were astounding.||Aug 2008|
|Zakkushi||823 Denman St||This place is seriously fun. Lively atmosphere and many delicious small dishes to try. I'm drooling over the memory of the grilled pork-belly skewers.||Aug 2008|
