    Ah, thanks for bringing back that lovely brunch together! And I’m so glad you added that alternative title, because that’s exactly what I was thinking as I looked through the photos!! Sweet potato fries and kimchi? I think I must go there. Next time downtown. 😉
    And keep that heavy coat nearby. . . . I hear snow is coming. I think I like your country better. xo

    Haha the guy in the background looks less like he’s chewing than horking up a bite too spicy for him. Sweet potato fries with kim chee sound INCREDIBLE. Why has this not happened to me yet?
    Both bowls from Fresh look delicious, too. I’d probably opt for annnnyyything with salsa.

    You got to meet Janet?! I am totally jealous. And jealous of that bahn mi – that’s one of my favorites!

    The universe gave you all this wonderful outing as a compensation 🙂
    Everything is too good!

    I love the look of Ricki’s dish with the avocado and tempeh but it doesn’t look like Toronto winter food to me. I love your stripey cowl neck top. Very swish. I love the alternative title for the post – and am glad you captured those diners. That woman’s green top is beautiful. I would never have seen it otherwise!

    I love how you have friends and are being looked after all across the world! 😀

    The *very moment* I spied/read ‘Sweet potato fries topped with kimchi’ I also said “YES” at the same time I read your words!

    1. Kath Lockett

      …. does that make sense…?

  8. Kari @ bite-sized thoughts

    Ha! The guy in the last photo definitely wins the background chewing award 😀

    These all look like appropriate ‘resting’ lunches to me, and I hope you have many more, but without falling down the stairs first!

    you lucky lucky lucky thing to dine out with both ricki and janet (and partners) – I am more jealous of your company than your food – fresh sounds amazing but I am unsure about the banh mi boys dishes (never having tried kimchi)

  10. Gabby @ the veggie nook

    Ahhh I still need to go there! Fresh is a favourite but sweet potato fries with kimchi, I NEED.

  11. Lou

    Food and blogger-meeting envy. Right here.

  12. janet @ the taste space

    Yes, the company is always better when heading out for food, methinks. Next time, we should hit it up in one of our kitchens. 🙂

    Rob’s photo of you is hilarious. Not you, the other eater, of course. 🙂

    1. Rob

      Ha, yes, I’ll have to dig up the picture and send it over. It was great to meet you Hannah. I enjoy Banh Mi Boys so much I’d go back anytime 🙂

        Oh, you meant the photo of the guy in the background who loves his banh mi so much it looks like he’s about to faint. I totally understand. Those banh mis are just that good.

    I want to try those kimchi-topped sweet potato fries! What an awesome sounding combination.

  14. Alayna @ Thyme Bombe

    Sweet potato fries topped with kimchi??!! Great idea!

  15. Ellie@Fit for the Soul

    I love it when I find a really good vegan or health-conscious restaurant! And what a nice time with friends! IT’s amazing how we can make such great connections by getting to know each other through the blog world, isn’t it? And I can’t believe you got a concussion, girl, that sounds…painful. 🙁

    I spent way more time than should have been allowed staring at that last photo of you + dude. I wondered, is this the mysterious ‘Janet and Rob?’ ‘Janet and Rob’ sure don’t seem very friendly, but they do like pop! And goatees! Good on them, I thought. And then I saw your last comment about alt title, and everything made sense.

    Yes Canadians are very swell, but I have a question. Can someone please explain to me their commanding utilization of rectangular metal/skinny-framed glasses? It is so utterly Canadian, and I want to know why. Why?

  17. Theresa

    Jicama! We tried it for the first time last week. After growing two plants for, like, 4 months. Luckily we liked it.

    We ate out at a few very delicious places while we were in Toronto. I’ll have to dig up the names and ask you if you’ve been yet!

  18. CheezyK … and now I will have that dratted song stuck in my head for the rest of the day 😛

  19. msihua

    I prefer the alternative title 😛 But then you knew that

  20. Tammy

    Falling down sucks but your dining options look healing!

    They sure do seem swell! I appreciate these Canadian eats you’re showing me. They seem awfully delicious. Hope you’re well, my dear.
