It’s 11am and I’m dreaming about Cali, healthy options, and some dang good poke (poh-keh) bowl.I convinced my husband, little ones and friends to drive all the way to King street (a few ago when I was in Toronto) and fortunately, we had the best Calii love.
The decor of Calii Love was so much fun! I wanted to take back home all the wallpapers and chairs (I’m not even joking) and honestly, we absolutely loved how spacious it was especially if you’re a mom of two with one stroller. You’ll find communal tables and some cute bucket chairs if you’re doing a solo visit.
That day, I felt hopeful and I ordered a bowl of salmon, avocado, wakame, sweet onions, jalapenos, sriracha aioli, pickled ginger, cherry tomatoes and rice.
