Summerlicious - Valens

It's that time again - the 10th annual Summerlicious! It started July 6 and runs until July 22, so there's still time. For restaurant list, click here.

My friends and I went for lunch to Valens last weekend. Located in the heart of downtown Toronto, in Baldwin village. They offers a selection of fusion foods. You can check out their Summerlicious menu here.

I really liked it; great atmosphere, good food and nice service. There also a nice front patio. Check out the pics I took of the dishes we had. I definitely recommend Valens!

I have 2 more restaurants booked, so make sure to check back for my thoughts on them.
