Summer in Toronto this year was overshadowed with one week of non-stop torrential rain and thunderstorms. During those evenings, we were often stuck in traffic for hours and the idea of having to go home and cook seemed like extra effort.
So, this is what we opted on those rainy days for meal time….
Ichiban sushi delivery (most awesome delivery ever- wish this existed in Hong Kong or in the UK…. and the sushi was of great value and very fresh too).
The excitement of opening the wrapping (after 3+ hours in the car)
On the worst day of the rain filled week (ie. power-outages, floods) instead of takeout we cleverly decided to strategically eat out at a restaurant instead thinking there would be less people out than in (and we were right… but paid the price of the additional one hour drive back home). We went to Grazie, a local Italian restaurant in the Yonge and Eglinton area known for their home made pasta and home-styled Italian meals.
You can’t really go wrong with a meal at Grazie. The pasta all freshly made in house had a perfect eggy taste and al-dente texture. The desserts are from La Rocca which serve gigantic North-American styled cakes.
Rainy days don’t seem too bad when you have good food and company 🙂
