Mexico City Travel Guide

Mexico, Photography, Travel

In March I visited Mexico for the first time to eat all the food and see all the art. I’m not a beach/resort person so we visited Mexico City. It was an amazing experience exploring this massive, crazy city. There are so many district areas/neighbourhoods to explore and in 5 days we saw so much of the city and ate so much amazing food.

A Mediterranean Lunch at Lardo, Mexico City

Food, Mexico, Reviews, Travel

Lardo in Mexico City’s Condesa neighbourhood was one place I knew I wanted to try during our visit in March. Everything on their Mediterranean inspired menu was delicious! Lardo is part of the same restaurant group as Rosetta (you can even get their pastries at the side to-go window) and after dinning there I knew Lardo was going to be just as good!

Dinning at Rosetta, Mexico City

Food, Mexico, Reviews, Travel

Rosetta is one of those beautiful restaurants you see all the time on Instagram. The interior is bight and dreamy, filled with plants. But is the food any good? Well we went to Rosetta in Mexico City’s Roma Norte neighbourhood during our trip in March and had a delicious time! Rosetta is a modern Italian restaurant with a modern Mexican twist. All the dishes use so many fresh ingredients.

Brunch at Masala y Maíz, Mexico City

Masala y Maíz in Mexico City’s Juarez neighbourhood was the perfect brunch spot when we visited back in March. Our hotel included breakfast but I wanted to try one of Mexico City’s amazing brunch places while we were there. Masala y Maíz explores the culinary traditions of South Asian, East African and Mexico.

A Meal to Remember: Pujol, Mexico City

Food, Mexico, Reviews, Travel

Pujol by Chef Enrique Olvera in Mexico City is one of the World’s 50 Best Restaurants and as of 2019 it currently sits at #12. Mexico doesn’t have a Michelin Guide but I think it’s safe to assume that if it did Pujol would have at least one star if not more. On our trip to Mexico City in March we were lucky enough to dine there and truly had an amazing and memorable experience.

Alice Restaurant Review

Food, Ottawa, Reviews

Alice is a newly opened vegan restaurant in Ottawa’s Little Italy neighbourhood. This is just one of the most recent new openings in the area that’s making Little Italy the new foodie neighbourhood of Ottawa. Alice does an eight course blind tasting menu that changes seasonally. We visited a few weeks after they opened to try the inaugural menu. 

Prince Edward County Winery Guide

Canada, Ontario, Prince Edward County, Travel

Recently I had the pleasure of visiting Prince Edward County for the second time. The region has really exploded in the last 5 years and now there is just so much to do. One of the big draws is all the wineries, there are now 40! Between my two trip I’ve visited a good number of wineries and vineyards. This guide has my favourites, some other solid places, ones we won’t be back to and ones I hope to go to on my next visit. I’ve also thrown in a cider house, distillery and brewery that are too good to miss.

Ottawa Farmers’ Market

Ottawa

August is probably the best month in Ottawa to buy all your fruits and veg at the Ottawa Farmers’ Market. Literally everything in season and there is so much choice it can be hard to decide what to buy. Sunday mornings from 9am-3pm in Aberdeen Square at Lansdowne Park is where my favourite market in Ottawa takes place.

Ottawa Bites: Farinella’s Pizza & Gelato

Food, Ottawa, Reviews

Ottawa’s newest pizza joint Farinella is an instant favourite and perfect for summer. Occupying an industrial space in Little Italy on Rochester St., Farinella is just one of the many new additions this year making it Ottawa’s up and coming foodie neighbourhood.

Ottawa Bites: El Camino Tacos

Food, Ottawa, Reviews

El Camino is one of my go-to restaurant in Ottawa and they probably make the best damn tacos in the city. You really can’t go wrong here. Most tacos are a bit pricey but at El Camino I feel like it’s totally worth it since you actually get a lot of food and it’s of course delicious.
