Summer in the City
For the past month, Toronto has been engulfed in a heat wave! As much as it is painful and suffocating, I’d take warmth over the snow any day so I’m really just taking it day by day and enjoying it. Also, rain has been non-existent (a bonus!).
The past while has been a roller coaster ride, but on the good side I finally found a new job so yay for me! It’s a contract position, but I can’t complain when I can finally escape from bossman!!! What a sigh of relief. Maybe workdays will now be fulfilling because I have to actually do something…
In other news, now that August is fast approaching, it also means that I will be in New York City soon! We have booked/made decisions on where we want to eat, and every lunch and dinner are basically decided. My mouth salivates thinking of this. I just hope the food will be as good as I imagine them to be.
Just the past weekend, I went for summerlicious at North 44. Unfortunately, their food this time around was a bit disappointing. A few years ago, I went there for Winterlicious and it was one of the best meals I had in Toronto. I’m not sure if it’s because my standards have gone up or the quality has gone down, but I got:
- the pear salad -> this was alright, but you can’t really go wrong with a salad
- halibut -> this was a bit on the dry side. I wished there was some sauce to go with it
- banana strudel -> way too sweet and not really my kind of dessert
I don’t think I want to do another Summer/Winterlicious for a while… I hate when they let me down.
