All my favourite places... in one little book

Sightseeing
Here are the top things to see in Toronto... in my humble opinion. Normally if people ask me about sightseeing I say that there aren't that many great sights, but there is amazing opportunity to try authentic cuisine from all over the world and sip some lovely cocktails! ;)
I think this is the one true attraction in Toronto. Must do, so you can say you've been up there. :) You can also make a reservation and have dinner in the revolving restaurant on top!

An excellent Thai place in the neighbourhood. Very busy, but excellent food and only 5 minutes from my place. NO reservations, sadly.

Named the second coolest neighbourhood in the world by Vogue magazine, the uber-trendy two-kilometre Queen Street strip between Bathurst and Gladstone is home to some of the city’s most cutting edge boutiques among the art galleries and hip bars and restaurants. Shoppers can be sure that the street style around these parts will be as intriguing as what’s in the stores.

Sooo... this is kinda cool. It is a secret/hidden restaurant (ok, well it is listed on Google, so probably not THAT secret), but still cool to visit because there are no signs outside on purpose. In fact, it will be hard for you to find it at first try. Check it out... it's very hipster!
