Review

This past summer, I tried Ricarda's for the first time for Summerlicious. The lunch menu was $23 plus taxes for their three-course meal. I had the Ricarda's Quiche, Pan-Seared Red Snapper, and Tiramisu. I enjoyed my Summerlicious meal thoroughly, and after looking at Ricarda's regular menu, this was quite a steal! The three course meal was not overly filling and hit that sweet spot of contentment. The restaurant's atmosphere is lovely, perfect for a weekend brunch or an evening dinner date. I definitely recommend checking out Ricarda's if you are looking for a slightly higher-end restaurant downtown for a date or other special occasion. If you find that it's out of your budget, definitely try it for Winterlicious or Summerlicious! Ricardas Menu, Reviews, Photos, Location and Info - Zomato

[Event] Eat to the Beat 2017


Event: Eat to the Beat
Location: Roy Thomson Hall
Date: October 17, 2017
Website: www.eattothebeat.ca

This past Tuesday, Eat to the Beat returns in support of the Canadian Breast Cancer Society. 60 female chefs came together to serve delicious bite-size pieces from their restaurants and businesses. Hundreds of people got to try dishes from restaurants including: Hooked, Mildred's Temple Kitchen, and Tutti Matti. Popular bakeries such as Dufflet Pastries and Roselle Desserts were also present with an array of baked goods and sweets.

As always, I was unable to try it all because I was stuffed by the end of the night. Eat to the Beat was an absolute delight and I look forward to it again next year! Check out the slideshow below to see what was offered at the event and hopefully that will convince you to go in the future!
