I'm still trying to catch up on my Toronto trip... it was far too action packed to attempt more than the first post I did at Nelly's one evening.
If you haven't actually been to it, you've probably seen pics of the CN Tower before. While I didn't go into it this time (I did when I was 13 and stood on the glass floor at the top which was scary and cool), I did manage to take some cool pics of it.
My friend Danny and I were in the perfect location for a few pics one sunny afternoon...
The CN Tower is standing tall and proud :)
I was fortunate enough to dine at Live Organic Food Bar twice during my holiday, and I'm so glad I did. It's a cute place with great raw food, and even some cooked vegan options, which is nice if you're eating with non-raw folks. My only complaint is about the brownie I tried. I took it "to go", and was really turned off the next day when I chomped into it, because it was very obvious that the walnuts in it were rancid. On the flip side, I tried a little piece of their spicy cherry chocolate, and even though I can't handle too much spice, it was yummy.
Danny and I shared the nacho platter (now I've tried the nachos at 3 of the restaurants), and I really enjoyed them. While the guacamole, salsa, and sour cream were great and very similar at the other places, I thought Live's chips were the best because they're so thin and crispy.
We had cocktails: berries, kombucha, and vodka... I am soo making these at home, they were good!
Salads! A bit of everything in there...
Nelly, Danny, and I shared nachos (yes, again), for the second visit to Live. For our mains... ok, I'm boring, I ate the same salad. Simple and good!
Nelly had the falafel/greek salad special. These were really good! Much better than the falafel ball I had on my salad at Cruda which was terrible.
Danny had the veggie wrap.... filled with kale, other veggies, and I think some kind of seed pate.
We didn't bother with dessert. I admit, I'm a raw dessert snob. I like my own desserts, the things my friends make, and the goodies at One Lucky Duck. Otherwise... well, it's just not the same...
Wherever I am, I find a way to make it to the water. My favorite place :)
