My backlog of posts built spanned several months and I’ve just finished blogging about 2015, which is why I’m only now compiling my Best Eats of last year. For me, 2015 was full of food and travel. I was lucky enough to go on an epic 5 week vacation through Asia and am still working on blog posts from the trip! I also hopped down to the states to visit family and attended a wedding in Vancouver.

Oh and I got married.

Between the traveling, wedding planning, wedding attending, I still managed to sink my teeth into some great food in Toronto. The theme of the year seemed to be cheap eats and celebration.
