If you had to choose one restaurant in Toronto to eat at tonight, where would it be and why?
I have yet to check out Hanmoto but I’ve seen images of their interior on Google. Looks great and I think I’d enjoy myself in there even if the food wasn’t that good.
What makes Toronto unique? How do you feel about being a creative in Toronto?
I love Toronto. Being a creative here can be much more challenging but also much more rewarding.
