Toronto Winterlicious 2016

 I have to admit that this year, we do not have any Winter at all. The temperatures here in Toronto have been dipping wildly from the negatives to the positive since December. We should be thankful that we haven't really had any major snow storms like the blizzards in the Northern East Coast USA a few weekends ago. Luckily last weekend was especially warm and it coincided with the start of Toronto Winterlicious where Toronto's top 200 restaurants participate to offer a prix fixe three or four course lunch and dinner for an affordable price between $28 Cdn to $45 Cdn, excluding beverage. The food festival runs from 29 January to 11 February. It's really a good deal especially when you would like to try out a new restaurant or a different cuisine. 
Last weekend, we visited Toronto's Ultra Luxury Hotel, The Hazelton Hotel at Bloor-Yorkville area to try famous Canadian chef, Mark McEwan's, One Restaurant. We had their Brunch three course prix fixe menu which had a wide selection for each course and some special drinks. The interior of the hotel are so modern luxurious and according to my brother, the crowd is so posh. I saw some fashionable ladies carrying their Celine bags, there were some Chanel too and I carried my Dior bag. 
For drinks, I had the Princess Peach drink, chicken tacos for 1st course, then the salmon eggs Benedict  and for dessert, the coconut sorbet with passion, mango and kiwi fruits salad. The chicken tacos were delicious especially with the secret sauce on it. The eggs Benedict was just perfect and the dessert was refreshing. 
The rest of our group tried the waffles with fried chicken which was a delicious combination. 
Our dessert choices were dark chocolate mousse and coconut sorbet with passion, mango and kiwi fruits. We all had our own cappuccino with the most delicious chocolate biscotti I have ever tasted. 
On the 8 February will be the Chinese New Year, celebrating the New Year of the Fire Monkey.
