    I walked by this restaurant and was caught by the funky name and cool urban decor. I wasn't even sure what kind of food it was but I was compelled to check it out. When I discovered that it was Korean-Japanese, I was more than pleased (I love Asian food).

    Obviously a brand new restaurant, it wasn't too busy when I got in - but the atmosphere was inviting enough - comfortable, trendy yet accessible. I liked the way the Grand Opening bulletin suggested to bring your sister - very tongue in cheek - but my sister is currently out of town and I was hungry so I decided to dine alone. The waitresses were nice but obviously new - it was a bit awkward being seated at first but eventually I got settled and was attentively served by 3 different waitresses (not sure if this will be standard but oh well). The food was decent - standard Korean/Jap menu - although the tea was definitely fancier. The latter is not complimentary because it is more teahouse style - came with its own teapot/loose leaf variety on a candle-heater. I ordered the Honey Oolong (and asked for easy on the sweetness - just out of habit because tea houses tend to make anything sweet overly so) - it was very yummy!

    For dinner I ordered the Jap Chae (Korean bean noodles) appetizer and the Mush Mush maki roll (3 different kinds of mushroom - white, shittake and enoki). The portions were fairly decent (esp the appetizer) and then they even gave me a couple of pan-fried gyozas on the house. I ended up having to pack half my Mush Mush maki home.

    Overall, I just love the vibe at The Witches' Table. It made me think of what the cool urban bistros in New York or LA would be like (even tho I haven't been to either). There's just something really cool about the place. With all the businesses closing and drab looking areas on Yonge, this is definitely refreshing and a sign of hope that Toronto might retain some class yet. I'm definitely going to be back...and I'll probably bring my sister next time too! ^_^

    Btw, the actual address of the restaurant is 591 Yonge Street (directly facing St. Joseph). It is so new that at this time, I couldn't find a listing for it anywhere on the net.
