If y’all (I really wanted to use that word haha) checked out my instagram over the weekend, you’ll know that I went to Night It Up!. Now, what is Night it Up!? Essentially, it’s a night market, there’s no other way to describe it. It’s a food-filled, fun-filled night market, packed with people, stalls, food trucks and performances.
It’s been a week since I’ve been back from my Portuguese adventure and what an adventure it was! #Vacaymayday indeed!
In all technicality, it’s past my birthday week (unless birthday week is the week after your birthday), but I’ll probably spend the rest of this week posting up pictures of what I ate during my birthday week. It’s the most active I’ve been in a while haha.
Like I said, two for one! I went to two Winterlicious restaurants this year, which makes some pretty interesting opening post for 2018 I guess. Either way, here we go!!
Cluny. What can I say about Cluny, other than I’ve been trying to get it on the list for any of my ‘licious adventures… and my friends haven’t said yes till this year. Go Curiosity (fist bumps ftw)!! I have to say, it is pretty much everything I hoped it would be, so clearly I’m not disappointed in any way. The interior wasn’t what I thought it would be, probably because I wanted to be as surprised as possible and avoided pictures. Ha. Either way, Cluny makes me think I’ve left Toronto and was eating somewhere in the south of France or something. Given I’ve never been to France, my imagination might not be as helpful… or that indie movie Colin Firth was in with Emma Stone… Either way…
Let’s get the show on the road!

First post of the year! (Wow, its February already…). Welps, I continue to be unreliable with posting I see. But have no fear (well, I’m sure you had no fear to begin with), I am back with not one but two posts. That’s right, you heard it here first folks! That’s two posts! Two! Anyway, enough showboating, let’s get this show on the road.
LaughlivEat and I went to Mezza Notte Trattoria. It’s close to home, so guaranteed to get home at a reasonable hour, since we decided to check it out on a weeknight. It was kind of unexpected to find an Italian restaurant between Finch and Sheppard on Yonge, given we usually think of that street as filled with Asian food. It looked like a cozy restaurant, which does the name “trattoria” justice I suppose.
So very obviously, we visited this restaurant during Winterlicious. As much as Winterlicious advertises itself as a cost efficient way of trying out the various restaurants in Toronto, the prices have made it kind of sceptical for a lot of people. Anyway, on with the food!
