Taal is Back and Better than Ever

Posted on Sunday, August 02, 2020 12:00 AM

We’ve been driving by the construction site at Taal Fine Indian Cuisine for months now, eagerly awaiting the grand opening of their brand new space. One of Brantford’s most beloved Indian restaurants, and well known for its food that is served at the Brantford International Villages Festival’s India Village, the flavours of Taal have been missed.

Get those fascinators and lacy gloves on, and raise your pinkies! If you’re thinking of hosting a small gathering with your social circle, consider hosting an “afternoon tea” or “high tea”.

Bread is a fan favourite over here at the Brantford Visitor & Tourism Centre! Garlic toast, cheesy bread, warm with butter, fresh dipped in olive oil and classic PB&J are just a few of the suggestions that swirled around in our group poll. There are just so many ways to enjoy bread!

Bread offers a variety that many other foods cannot, most likely due to the fact that bread making (when done well) is an art that has spanned the ages. In fact, nowadays, it is perhaps so common that it can...


Chinese & Japanese Delights Under One Roof

Posted on Friday, July 17, 2020 12:00 AM

Blessings Eatery is one of those incredible locally owned restaurants that loves their community, and the deliciousness of their food clearly reflects this. This restaurant offers both Chinese and Japanese food and is well known for their excellent customer service from their multi-generational family of staff, and huge menu that can please even the most discerning (or picky!) palates. Touted by locals as “best in town” and “one of my absolute favourite places to order,” if you’re looking for takeout...
