Yakitori Kintori

Yakitori Kintori is a compact restaurant that recently opened up on top of its sister restaurant, Kinton. Yes, that's right, this restaurant is the newest member of the Guu/Kinton/JaBistro family. While it holds the same ambiance as its sister restaurants, its main focus is not on fresh fish but on Japanese charcoal grilled Yakitori (skewers).

Yakitori Kintori
Where: 668 Bloor St W
Price: $$, For 5 people, bill was $160 (not including tips)
Notes: Reservations are highly recommended; MUST get the dekitate tofu, sake cheese fondue and kitsune udon.

Outrageously Cheesy Treats That Want To Be Inside You

We love cheese on anything and everything. I came across this cheesy article on BuzzFeed showing a variety of different dishes packed with cheesy goodness. If you ever get to meet C, you have to try her pull apart bread that is completely filled with cheese. The only problem with the pull apart bread is once you try a piece, it's really hard to stop.

Here are my top 3 favorites!

In the Kitchen: Zucchini Lasagna

I LOVE lasagna but always found it fairly heavy in the carbohydrate department. In this recipe, zucchini replaces the lasagna sheets but the same delicious flavour is still there. You won't even miss the noodle! This lasagna is perfect for winter or summer because the vegetables are very easy to substitute.

Baked Kit Kats Exist.. and They Look DELICIOUS!


In Japan, the latest flavours for Kit Kat are "Yaki Cream Cheese". In Japanese, "yaki" means baked, toasted, grilled, roasted, etc. (BTW, yes, this is the same "yaki" in takoyaki..which in direct translation means octopus that is baked). Unfortunately, these are ONLY available in the Kit Kat boutique located in Tokyo.

Thermos: 16-Oz Leak Proof Drink Bottle with Tea Infuser Review

I was on the hunt for a reliable tea travel mug for the longest time. I was being too picky with each one - either they were too small, not spill-proof or not very ergonomic for work. J ended up finding this 16 ounce Leak Proof Drink Bottle with Tea Infuser from Thermos on Amazon and it has honestly been a dream to use.

Would You Still Eat These Foods If They Were Called By Their Honest Names?

Have you ever thought that yogurt is literally just cream that has been injected with bacteria? Or that tripe is actually the stomach lining of a cow?

These foods are way more appetizing with the names we know them by. Would you still eat these foods if they were called by their real, honest names?

Cereal Box Mascots are Designed to Catch Your Eye

Marketing companies are more sneaky and clever than I give them credit! Researchers at Cornell University Food and Brand Lab recently discovered that cereal mascot's eyes are placed depending on who they are targeting.
