High Park in the Fall

It’s the middle of November in Toronto and the weather outside is a daily guessing game. One day it’s sunny and a tolerable 10 degrees, the next there are flurries and a wind chill leading to a drop to about -3. Whatever the conditions, the last weeks of fall are still inviting enough to stroll through one of Toronto’s loveliest nature escapes – High Park.

It was Saturday evening that I found myself walking through its leafy paths. Although it was quite chilly, a scarf and a warm coat did the trick to keep warm for 30 minutes or so. The trees were still full of leaves, although more dull and grey compared the vivid colours present only a few weeks ago. There were cyclists and families enjoying the surroundings and we came across a huge adventure playground that was enticing enough for me to explore. The visit was short as it got dark so quickly, but it was worthwhile to walk though the park before winter weather truly hits.

Tataki Attack at Sushi Moto. No doubt the best sushi roll in the world (or at least in Toronto!)

I have frequented Sushi Moto many times and there is no occasion in which I’ve been left disappointed. The restaurant is comfortably situated by Sheppard-Yonge Station and there are several nearby parking spots, making it easily accessible whether you are driving or subwaying over.

Last night, myself and a few friends visited Sushi Moto for dinner. Our waitress was kind and came by often to check up on us. The sushi rolls were delicious. We ordered The Beautiful, Crazy Roll, and (my personal favourite), Tataki Attack! The quality of the sushi was impeccable. The rolls are about $10-15 for 8-10 pieces. The price is towards the medium range, but it is most definitely worth it. The tables and seating are very comfortable, with both regular tables and spacey booths available. There is a wide bar and the place is great to catch a basketball or hockey game with several flatscreen TVs broadcasting sport games live .

If you are looking for quality sushi in Toronto, this is the place to go.
