Not surprisingly, a visit to Toronto meant that I stuffed my face overmuch this weekend and didn’t do a jot of internship research. I had good intentions and a stack of book excerpts stuffed in my bag, but of course, the train ride proved to be a perfect opportunity for an extended nap.

I’m just glad that Rice Bar, my favourite spot in Kensington Market, is amenable to my vegetarian ways and still a treat, free-range eggs and all. I met a couple of good friends for brunch there on Saturday and savoured the La La – two poached eggs with avocado, hollandaise, and tomatillo salsa on toast. Just gorgeous. I recommend Rice Bar wholeheartedly – it’s cute, friendly, delicious, and principled. 319 Augusta, if you’re ever in the area. It’s a reasonable walk from Spadina station.
