Candice’s Picks for Winterlicious

Fill your bellies to stay warm this Winter

Winterlicious is a great event organized by our fine city. A bunch of restaurants plan prix fixe menus for $25, $35 or $45 bucks. This is the only way I can afford to eat at most of these places so for the sake of a good blog post…I put on 5 pounds and enjoyed some incredible yet affordable food. Winterlicious is on until the 13th.

You get to pick from a few apps, entrees and desserts. These were my favourites.
