The Gabardine

Bymark Restaurant (@BymarkDowntown) is the second restaurant I visited for Winterlicious. Bymark has actually topped my list for restaurants to visit for a while.  Not only was I intrigued by  the overwhelming choices on their Licious menu  but also so many foodies have raved about this restaurant so I knew I just couldn’t let this opportunity pass.

Kenzo Japanese Noodle House

Kenzo Japanese Noodle House specializes in Ramen noodles – Not your typical Western style pasta but rather a type of wheat noodle served in a meat or fish flavoured broth. There aren’t that many places that serve decent Ramen noodles in Toronto so Kenzo is probably your safest bet. I was shopping on Bloor and ended up  in the Annex. Despite…
