Hello all! What’s upping? Happy Day to you, it is a Monday here in Toronto getting back to reality after the weekend which I had a fairly enjoyable weekend =) Hoping that things are smooth sailing for you guys as well and no issues! Today I wanted to tell you all a little bit about my weekend but really and truly I wanted to tell you guys a bit more about my favorite restaurant which I had the pleasure of visiting this past weekend!
So before jumping into the post I wanted to share something with you all! While thinking of a creative title for this post, I came up with the idea of “Rave about my Fav” which I must say, I like the sound of that! So I am going to try to do a “Rave about my Fav” weekly edition whether it be restaurants, home cooked meals, fashion, beauty, skincare, movies, music, places, etc. I am sure you guys get the point =), but basically whatever is a fav of mine that week I would love to share with you all! My focus for these posts will be to ensure that they are more visually appealing and less wordy as I know I can go on and on! So these will be more fun and quick reads =), so let’s begin with my first ever Rave about my Fav!
Moxies, Moxies, Moxies! This guys, has to be my hands down all-time favorite restaurant ever! Definitely a Fav of mine that I honestly cannot stop raving about =) Now, I believe Moxies has a few different locations spread throughout North America but as I live in Toronto I will be focusing on the locations I visit frequently here! So, the obsession with this lovely place started ugh…I want to say about 8 years ago? I first went for my 16th birthday with my sister and I believe some friends and since then I have been in love! Their food never disappoints, always full of flavor and always very pleasing to the eye as well. Since my boyfriend and I met this has been our go to place whenever we want to have a nice dinner out, for special occasions, or simply just because! I guess other than the food; this place holds a lot of memories for me as well as I have had tons of good times here.
The location of choice majority of the time would be in Scarborough which is where the love for Moxies begun for both my boyfriend and I. We have gone to many other locations as well but I think we can both agree that the Scarborough location is our fav. This past weekend we actually went to another location which is located in North York or better known to be located in the well-known Yorkdale shopping centre. We had taken a trip out there and thankfully stopped in for dinner at Moxies! My boyfriend and I both have our favorite dishes here; our meals are practically the same every time we go from appetizers to dessert. This time we were accompanied by his sister which I believe she too has found her favorite meal! We were ready for dinner when we got there so we jumped straight into our mains then to dessert!
I enjoyed my favorite dish which is the Chicken Madeira Rigatoni while my boyfriend had the Chipotle Mango Chicken and lastly, his sister enjoyed the Veggie burger which consisted of a Portobello mushroom rather than meat!
For dessert we ordered the Tasting Trio as we each love the desserts included and rather than getting them individually we got the trio! It consisted of three bite sizes of their famous White Chocolate Brownie, their yummy Sticky Toffee Pudding, and lastly my fav their delicious Salted Carmel & Pecan Cheesecake.
All I can say guys is Yum! I think each of us enjoyed our meals and could not have asked for anything more! A trip to Moxies can be a little pricey but I would say it is worth it! Here are a few more details I’d love to share with you!
Location – There are quite a few locations in the Toronto area. Most are connected to a Mall which makes it super convenient after a day of shopping or perhaps grab brunch prior to shopping! As I said, my favorite location is in Scarborough, ON.
Reservations – Hmm I would have to say Moxies runs more on a first come first serve basis and then there is of course a waiting list. Depending on the day, the wait can be about half hour to an hour if they are busy. This of course are weekends and special occasions such as Valentine’s Day, etc. I have never gone in a large group so I would assume if you are planning to go in a big group that they would accept reservations.
Atmosphere – I love! The décor and atmosphere, it is very modern and chic yet cozy. It is definitely a place that you can get a little more dressed up too if you like. Most times I have gone it has always been super tidy and clean, the waiters and waitresses are friendly and attentive.
Price – So, I think I can safely say to expect to probably spend about $100.00 – $130.00 when coming here if you are planning to have appetizers, mains, desserts, and drinks and yes guys! This price applies for two people. So it can get pricey but I think it is totally worth it!
So! There you have it guys, I love Moxies for sure a fav to rave about! I hope after reading this you will consider giving it a try if there is one located nearby =) if you happen to go, please let me know your thoughts below! I hope you love it as much as I do! Also, leave me comments about some of your favs! I would love to hear you guys rave about things as well hehe =)
Bye for now! Until the next Lifestyleforyoureyes Post
