Go SevenEast!

Cynthia Cheng Thai chicken spring rolls Though menu choices at SevenEast aren’t too different from the typical fusion restaurant (Spring Rolls, Indochine, etc…), this has got to be one of the best fusion places Prospere Magazine has tried in a while.  From the ambiance of the restaurant (small and modern-looking) to the food, this restaurant […]

G20 Protesters Crazy and Improper

Peaceful protesters on Friday, June 20 The G20 summit has started in Toronto, and I am very glad to be NORTH of all the action.  Things are rather quiet (unusually quiet, actually) where I’m writing, but that is definitely NOT the case further south.  As of 4 pm, cop cars have been burnt (in the […]

Crazy Anti-Immigration Dude in Downtown TO

Last week, I came across a man on the corner of Yonge and Bloor.  He was wearing a huge sign which said “Imigration Violates My Human Rights.”  Yes, he spelled “immigration” incorrectly.  The guy didn’t look all that educated, and was, for the most part, ignored.  A woman did approach him, but soon stomped away.  […]

An Old Fashioned Experience at Avenue Diner

Cynthia Cheng Most diners in the city don’t live up to the nostalgic, old fashioned goodness of the Avenue Diner on Davenport and Avenue Road.  A small shop with very few tables and a counter, the restaurant has been around since the 1940s.  Only open for breakfast and lunch, the menu choices are very much […]

Brunch at Le Pain Quotidien

Cynthia Cheng About a year ago, I wrote about breakfast at Le Pain Quotidien, a European/French-inspired communal table restaurant chain which can be found all over the world.  Recently, my fiance and I revisited (actually, I revisited the place – it was the first time for my fiance) the downtown Toronto location for brunch.  Rather than ordering […]

Ford Ahead in Polls: Get Ready for an Unpolished, Unsophisticated TO

According to the Globe and Mail, Toronto mayoralty candidate, Rob Ford, has passed George Smitherman in the polls.  To many, this is very scary as to them, Ford is not exactly the “ideal” candidate.  He has been caught saying things that he shouldn’t be saying, and also does not give off the vibe as being […]

Quince: Great for a Light Lunch or Tastey Dinner

It may have been around for a while, but Quince Restaurant on Yonge, south of Eglinton is a great place to relax for a nice delicious meal.  Just far south enough to be away from the buzz that is Yonge and Eglinton, dining at the restaurant will put you away from the crowd – a […]

Indigo Masala Room: Av and Dav’s Indian Restaurant

Cynthia Cheng It has been around for less than a year, but Indigo Masala Room, on Avenue Road just south of Davenport is perhaps one of the best Indian restaurants I’ve been to in the past little while.  Not only do they have good service (we were asked whether we wanted additional naan or rice), […]
