Recently visited Spain and enjoyed delicious local food from some small non-descript establishments. The food here at LaVinia is very reminiscent of the food we enjoyed in Spain.

Etobicoke is a relaxed area along the Humber River.
It's saturated with green spaces and conservatories,
making it a premier destination for outdoor sports,
hiking, and nature walks. Its abundance of parkland
and lakes makes it a typical spot for fishing,
picnicking, and camping out, especially in warmer
months. The peaceful area is also enjoyed by families,
who appreciate its boardwalks and sports facilities.
