Food Porn- Winterlicious

This year I managed to try two restaurants for Winterlicious.  Winterlicious an event where a bunch of participating restaurants offer a fixed price menu with different options for appetizers, mains, and desserts.  The prices are $15, $20, $25 for lunch and $25, $35, and $45 for dinner. I find these prices are quite reasonable because they are all 3 course meals at pricier restaurants that I would not have tried out if it hadn't been for Winterlicious.

Enjoy the photos and hope you all have a lovely weekend!

Toula Restaurant at the Westin Harbour Castle 

We ended up having dinner here for $35. Portions were small but just the right amount for us girls! Plus no food was wasted :) The location is also quite lovely because it's on the 38th floor and has an amazing view of downtown Toronto and Lake Ontario. Well.. it would be even lovelier if Toronto wasn't a scene straight out of The Day After Tomorrow.

Trio Restaurant in Novotel

The first time I ate at Trio was during Summerlicious last summer.  The location is super convenient (connected to the subway, and its close to where I live) and the food you get for $15 is a steal.  However, I did find that the portions for Winterlicious were a lot smaller than Summerlicious. The food was absolutely delicious. Unfortunately I don't have the descriptions for the images below because they took down the Winterlicious site :(




 

P.S Who's watching the Olympics?

  1. There is something similar to this in Philadelphia called Restaurant Week. You're right; these kind of events are a great way to try more expensive restaurants that you wouldn't normally go to. The food looks delicious, and I'm glad you were able to have a great time there with your friends!
