Bar Begonia

If you’ve been following me on Instagram, you will have seen a couple photos that I’ve posted of this place, along with my promise to blog about my experience here. Although it took me a while to actually get this up on the blog, I’m happy to finally share my fantastic brunch at Bar Begonia (@barbegonia)! Bar Begonia is Chef Anthony Rose‘s 6th and latest installment of his empire in Toronto (along with Big Crow, Fat Pasha, both locations of Rose and Sons, and Schmaltz Appetizing). This venture is a Parisian-style bar/restaurant that serves up a pretty mean brunch. You might have driven by the…

Look Before You Leap (My Inaugural Blog Post)

So, I’ve finally decided to bite the bullet and jump, feet first, into the blogging world! I say “jump” half-jokingly, because, as the old adage says, “look before you leap”. And, being the true risk-averse person that I am, before I ultimately decided to begin this journey, I needed to carefully consider the advantages and disadvantages of starting my own blog. Blogging is something I’ve always wanted to do, and people have told me to do, for years. And in a way, I’ve already been blogging for a while now – I’ve been insta-blogging! I’ve been sharing my photos and…
