Latin World

I’ve always walked past Latin World and seen it packed full of people who’ve probably been going there for years. It’s like a secret local spot that hasn’t been taken over by hipsters. Inside it is like a grocery store that also serves food. For $10, I got 4 fish tacos. They also have like…

Hokkaido Ramen Santouka (Toronto)

Ramen is such a comforting winter dish, and with so many places in Toronto, I’m eager to find the best broth. I think my favourite so far is Hakkaido Ramen Santouka. I went there for the first time yesterday because the line always looked too long, but we were lucky to be seated within five…

Turkey For Chinese New Year?

Last week, for Chinese New Year we cooked a turkey for some reason. Chinese people don’t traditionally eat turkey in general, but I think Mom really wanted to cook one. Do you have food traditions that you usually follow and it would be weird to break? food

KW Craft Cider 

This weekend I picked up some KW Craft Cider. I’ve never had it before but I was drawn to its minimalistic packaging. It is named after the Kitchener-Waterloo region where the brewery is based. At 6.7%, I found the cider rather easy to drink, was only slightly tarty, but full of flavour. In fact, I…

Java Works Dark French Roast

I found this Java Works French Roast at Winners. It is a Β blend of premium selected high grown Arabica coffees from the Latin Americas and the Asia Pacific regions. This coffee was full-bodied and flavourful. I didn’t find it too bitter and it had a light sweetness. There’s ton of coffees in the Java Works…

Brunch @ Fat Pasha

Nash and I always go for brunch on New Years and we never make reservations. We actually walked into a few of our favourite spots but we woke up late and they were all full. I’ve never been to Fat Pasha but they had seats so that is where we ended up! Their specialty is…

San Diego Coffee: Dutch Chocolate

My sister gifted me a Bodum French Press set for Christmas that has a coffee bean grinder and hot water boiler. Now I’m excited to explore the world of coffee beans. My first bag was San Diego Coffee’s “Dutch Chocolate” flavour, that I ordered on Amazon. It’s a Medium Roast of 100% Arabica beans. Though…

Momofuku Shoto

Nash and I always book an indulgent dinner when we’re celebrating something, so we decided on Momofuku Shoto for our Christmas date. There’s no Γ  la carte menu, only a tasting menu for $120, full of surprises if you’ve never been. We were seated with others around an open kitchen where we curiously watched as the chefs in…

My First Poké at Big Tuna

I tried Hawaiian PokΓ© for the first time this week at Big Tune PokΓ© Bar. I had the Big Katuna with Japanese rice. It had crunchy veggies and ponzu flavoured fresh tuna. I added avocado for $1 extra. It was all super fresh tasting! The only thing I was slightly confused about was there seemed…

Ubering Love Chix 

This week, there has been some cold snowy weather. One of the nights was so bad that my commute lasted over two hours. When I got home, I didn’t want to cook so I opened up my Uber Eats app. The road conditions were so terrible, there weren’t many choices that night. However, I learned…
