Toronto Summerlicious

 It's that time of the year again for the Toronto Summerlicious which will run the whole month from 3 to 26 July. This event celebrates the diverse food and the culinary experience around Toronto. There are more than 210 of the top restaurants around Toronto participating offering their 3 or 4 course prix fix menus for lunch and dinner. This is the best time to try out all of the restaurants in your wish list for a reasonable price.  The Summerlicious will also coincide with the largest, busiest and sporty event to be held here in Toronto, the 2015 Pan-Am Games which will have all the athletes from North and South American countries competing for their glory. It will definitely be a delicious and busy summer so far. 
 My friends and I chose to have dinner at Origin North. It was a 3 course dinner where I chose to have the Saffron Arancini with sweet pea and zucchini crudo, Moroccan chicken with spices and couscous and for dessert I had the Salted Caramel Cone soft ice cream. Overall, the food was delicious and very filling.  The setting was very elegant and trendy. Service was very good and friendly.
 My other friends chose the Flank steak which they were not so happy with because the portion was small. The chef even refused to do a medium steak for one of my friends. The chef told us that he will only prepare either rare or well done.  My friend had no choice but to eat a well done steak. This was really strange and not very good customer service.

My dessert of salted caramel cone with soft vanilla ice cream and sprinkled with peanut brittle served in a bowl.  I just love ice cream during summer.

Enjoy the summer!
