Guysss, if you loved @daldongnaeto as much as I did, you’ll definitely love this place too! This is their sister restaurant that just opened up earlier this year - Kisa Korean BBQ (near Yonge and Steeles)
.
Same great food but with more space! Super chill place to hang with friends over some bbq and soju. They also have a parking lot at the back too - which I didn’t realize until after I parked somewhere else. πŸ˜…
.
Just loooook at that meeeeat!!! 😍😍😍 So fresh and high quality. Also not overly marinated so you can really notice the quality of the meat. 🀀🀀🀀

Brunch mode is ON at @fuwafuwapancakes!
.
This is the crΓ¨me brΓ»lΓ©e pancake, $15.80. I was a little hesitant to order this at first, since it sounded like it would be way too sweet, but to my surprise it was not. In fact, it was actually really really good!! The pancake was light and fluffy and the sauce tasted really good too - not too sweet at all! I loved eating this with the berries and vanilla ice cream the came on the side - talk about perfect pairing! What a perfect way to kick start the day! πŸ˜ŽπŸ˜‹

Spotted one of the most photogenic I’ve seen in a while. This is the First Kiss from @drinknamwan (Thai drinks in a bag), spotted at @nightitup!
.
It comes with Thai sala fruit syrup, milk, evaporated milk, butterfly pea flower and ice. To be honest, I wasn’t exactly sure what to expect of this drink from the name and description alone, but it was so pretty, so it was definitely something I wanted to try!
.
Though there’s been a lot of hype over this place, I was actually not too impressed with the taste. I felt it was way too sweet for my liking and the flavours weren’t a match for my tastebuds. After taking my first sip, I realized I forgot to ask if I could get it less sweet... that’s usually how I like my drinks. It was also on the expensive side: $8.

Lining up to pay wasn’t too long, despite the long line.... but after paying, I then realized there was a separate line to wait for your drink. The whole process from lining up to pay to picking up my drink was a whopping 50 mins!!! If I had known the wait would be so long, I probably would have skipped this. The good thing was that you could walk around and come back to check on the status of your drink from time to time.
.
Overall, I felt $8 was too pricey and I was not digging this particular drink even though the drink looked really nice! The wait was also ridiculously long... :( That being said, the list of their other flavours had some that sounded pretty delicious, such as the β€œMilky Mango”. Yum! Maybe I’ll try that one next time.

Wanna know how I stay coooool? 😎😎😎 With help from @happylemoncanada of course! πŸ˜‚

This is the freshly squeezed lemon black tea - cold and large for $5.99. Sooo good and refreshing! No ordinary lemon tea is worth going back to after having this one. πŸ˜… Thanks for the recommendation @foodtourage!

Yes, I know it’s hot outside but I’m still recovering from my cold and had massive cravings for Korean spicy soup!!! πŸ™„ This is the Sundubu Jjigae (or β€œsoon tofu”) from Han Mi Jeong.
.
Comes with soft tofu with a mix of seafood (clams, small shrimp and squid) and an egg in spicy soup. Comes with purple rice too, for $10.99. I love Korean tofu soup. Usually I’m not crazy about the seafood that comes with it though, but the squid today was excellent! It was thinly sliced and very tender. .
Definitely satisfied my cravings! ☺️

What’s your remedy for colds? For me, noodles noodles noodles, soup soup soup!!! 🍜 But seriously... who catches a cold in the summer?! 😭
.
Grabbing my remedy from @okotteramen today. Got the ginger soup with pork belly (on point πŸ‘Œ) and enoki mushrooms (always a necessity 😍) with udon (hiding in the soup, but it’s in there!!).
.
Was a bit disappointed that they raised their prices... but I guess it was only a matter of time! The soups are all $1 more now, making this $10.99.

Lobster grilled cheese ($18) from @dracomarkham in @torontomarriottmarkham.
.
As a huge lobster fan, this was an easy choice! It was tasty, but the bread was buttered a little too heavily, and thus masking the majority of the lobster taste. As a result, it’s difficult to comment much on the lobster itself.
.
I’m also a huge sucker for cheese, so I wish it were more cheesy too! The fries were yummy and great for nibbling on slowly over some serious catch-up session with friends! ☺️
.
Overall, I wasn’t too impressed, but there were no regrets trying this. Perhaps I’ll be back next time to try something else on the menu. I loved the dining experience and the whole space was really modern and comfortable!

Teppanyaki dinner at Yang’s.
.
There were approximately four teppanyaki tables and the rest were regular tables for those who want to do the all-you-can-eat dinner. We chose to do the teppanyaki!
.
For the teppanyaki dinners, you can choose from the set teppanyaki dinners or order each item separately. We ordered the dinner sets with two types of meat / seafood (around $33-35 per dinner set). It came with soup, salad, fried rice, veggies and ice cream. Food was decent, and my fav was probably the steak and beef short ribs, but the rest were really delicious, tender and juicy too!
.
I was a bit disappointed with the service though - our server was not too friendly. Also, each room has two separate teppanyaki tables with one chef per table. I’ve always had the chef in front of us cook our entire meal... I mean, we’re partially paying for the β€œshow”, right? Maybe times have changed, since I haven’t had teppanyaki in over half a year, but this was the first time where I had the two chefs splitting up the work and cooking for both tables together. This meant that we only got to watch half our meal being cooked. Anyone know if this is common nowadays?!? πŸ˜ͺ
.
Anyway, overall rating is probably 6/10. Food was decent but service was subpar.

Miso Glazed Cod from @milestonesrestaurants.
.
Delicious Norwegian wild cod with an amazing coconut lemon broth. The broth/sauce goes soooo well with the rice and really brings the whole dish together!! The spinach, kale, grape tomatoes and red onions not only add colour, but they add so much fresh flavours too!
.
The cod was a big and thick cut, which I loved, but I felt it was a tad over cooked and the pieces were falling apart when it was served. It was still pretty good though. Not bad for $25.75.
.
It was even better when enjoyed on the patio on this lovely summer day!

Perfectttt patio weather! Soaking up some β˜€οΈ and sipping on some 🍹. How are you enjoying the amazing summer weather?
.
This is the superfruit red sangria from @milestonesrestaurants. $9 for 3.5oz. Suppper refreshing and tasty. I wish they had more fruits inside though! I still prefer their original Bellini slush the most!

Continuing my post about @lioncitytoronto.
.
This is the Tau Hu Goreng, $5.50. It was sooooooo good - probably one of the best fried tofu dishes I’ve had in a while! The tofu was crispy, and the toppings (bean sprouts, cucumbers and peanut sauce) were so so sooo good! Highly recommend! πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘
.
If you love fried tofu as much as I do, you should definitely check it out here! πŸ˜πŸ˜‹πŸ˜Ž

Came back to visit again after the new ownership and renovations at @lioncitytoronto.
.
This place has always been a family favourite of ours so we were a bit anxious to try it out again after the changes, but boy were we relieved! Everything tasted just as good, if not better!
.
This is the Laksa Lemak, $9.50. It comes with a coconut broth with fish cakes, tofu puffs, eggs, cucumbers, and shrimp or chicken (we chose shrimp). Love the flavours and highly recommend! Will be posting more of what we ordered hopefully soon! ☺️

Jerk chicken from @anealstasteoftheislands is the perfect meal to have on hot summer days like today!
.
It’s a small-ish (but not puny) space that, I believe, most people come for takeout, but they also have tables there for you to sit in. That’s what we did.
.
After trying the food, I was so impressed!!! The chicken was super juicy and the rice was so flavourful! You can make it spicy if you want, so obviously, loving spicy food as much as I do, that’s what I did... with no regrets!!! The spicy part is all the orange spots on the chicken and rice. 🌢️🌢️🌢️ Soooo yums!!! The coleslaw was really good, especially to help cool down from the heat (temperature from outside and spiciness from food). πŸ˜…
.
It comes in either a small or large plate. This was the small. I’m not sure how much extra you get for the large size, but this size was perfect for me!
.
Price: $10.99 (S), $13.99 (L)
.
Overall, I was super impressed. Tasted authentic and legit. Food was delicious! I will be back!

First time trying the β€œnew” @fishmanlobsterclubhouse location at Finch and Kennedy. It’s soooo much bigger!!
.
This is the lobster tower. The lobster is fresh and meaty as always. I found that a lot of the dishes were slightly different than the old location though. Anyone know if it’s the same owner / chefs?
.
This one actually came with some fries at the bottom, which I found to be an odd combo with the lobster and definitely made this dish feel cheaper than it was.

It has almost become our routine to grab dinner at @lovemevame before girls night at the movies. It’s perfect for sharing amongst a small group.
.
Top left: chicken shawarma, $17.75
Top right: grilled beef, $19.25
Bottom: trio signature dip plate, $12.45
.
Chicken shawarma was definitely the better deal between the two main plates, since the grilled beef only came with three skewers with two cubes on each. That being said, the chicken today was a bit dry (not always as dry as it was today) and the beef was really juicy. I also love love love getting their potato wedges with dill on the side. Crispy on the outside, soft on the inside. Flavour is amazing too!
.
The best part for me is definitely the dip though. Always. I love ordering the trio dip. It comes with freshly-made laffa bread too! From left to right, we ordered the fried eggplant, baba ganoush and finally the hummus+tahini. Baba ganoush is definitely my top pick of all the dips!

Korean spicy bolognaisei udon in soup from @phoenixrestaurant.
.
This has been my go-to dish here for years now, but I haven’t ordered it since the winter time. To my surprise, It was the first time I’ve had it warm instead of bubbling hot. The noodles didn’t taste as chewy as I remember them to be either... but, the flavour is still just as delicious! Probably (or rather, hopefully), this was just a one-off!
.
Price: $9.50

Found @kushimarutoronto at @tasteofasiafest (last day today!!!). $5 for any 3 skewers, which I thought was a pretty good deal, especially compared to some of the other booths.
.
Picked these three (left to right):
1) Mini onion: tasted like onion rings. Not bad, but would probably choose something else next time.
2) Mushroom: these were the king oyster mushrooms and were really juicy and delicious!
3) Cheese: my fav of the three! Deep fried mozzarella cheese. Soooo good and it was a decently sized piece of cheese.

Rain or shine, gotta get my skewers from @tasteofasiafest (last day today!!). Unfortunately, it was more rain than shine πŸ˜ͺ, but I got β€˜em anyway! Cravings satisfied!

These mochi cupcakes from the grocery store bakery in @jtownmarkham were so good!
.
I got the matcha one and loved the taste and texture. I had one on the spot when it was cooled down and another one at home after heating it up for 10-15 seconds in the microwave. Warming it up made a huge difference, so I definitely recommend enjoying it when warm! I can’t wait to try the black sesame next time!
.
$3.50 each.

I can’t believe this was my first time visiting @shawarma_stop. I was so impressed with the chicken shawarma wrap, which costs less than $8. It was so juicy and flavourful. Adding the hummus, garlic sauce and hot sauce is πŸ‘Œ. The lineup was huge though, so I’d try to arrive earlier next time. ⏰

Uhmmmm, @sasakifinepastry, one of each pls! If you’re a daifuku lover, this is the place to be!
.
It’s hard to decide on a favourite flavour here but hojicha cream is definitely way up there for me (though they’re all pretty delicious)! $2.60 for each of these fluffy pillow-like daifukus. πŸ’• I’m pretty sure they used to be $2.50 within the last half year, but oh well. I can deal with $0.10 increase for these. ☺️

Which is your fav? πŸ˜‹

Miso black cod from @kiurestaurant.
.
The black cod is delicately grilled and seasoned with sweet miso sauce. Very tasty. The two red sticks are tempura hajikami ginger, which I thought was unique (as I’ve never had it before).
.
The portion was way smaller than I had expected though, since I had thought it was going to be an entree... but it was more of a tapa - no carbs, just the fish. For $19, it was definitely not filling, so I had to order a ramen to complete my meal. πŸ˜…

Can’t get enough of @happylemoncanada, so needed two to satisfy my cravings! πŸ™„
.
Left: boba milk tea with puff cream (M), $4.99
Right: bubble roasted milk tea (M), $4.99
.
Both were delicious. It was also my first time having the puff cream and I was totally digging it!

First time dining at @dracomarkham in @torontomarriottmarkham.
.
After noticing the space/constellation themed decor, I quickly learned that the restaurant name, Draco, was inspired by the Draco constellation, which is Latin for dragon (and no, not inspired by #DracoMalfoy from #HarryPotter πŸ˜‚). The dragon goes well with the whole Can-Asian theme. I loved the decor and the space was very relaxing and comfortable.
.
The menu options for entree seemed a bit limited but I ended up choosing the King Kole Duck Breast, $23. It comes with toasted quinoa and charred broccolini with a maple-mustard sauce for the duck. I felt the quinoa was way too salty, though the flavour was good. The broccolini was a bit too charred for my liking too. Lastly, the duck - it was juicy, tender (except the bottom had a thin layer that was a bit tough, though it wasn’t a dealbreaker for me) and the flavour was delicious! The maple mustard sauce was πŸ‘Œ.
.
Overall, I enjoyed the service and the ambience a lot, but the food was just mediocre. Also, the price wasn’t too bad on paper but the portion size was quite small, so I was pretty hungry afterwards. I’d be back again to try another dish though.

TGIF! Lunch time at @woodstoneeatery.
.
Though it sounded risky, I went with it anyway. This is the baked udon with pork chop in Thai style green curry with cheese, $11.50, which comes with a drink too.
.
I love udon and I love cheese, so I decided why not?! I’ll have to say that it didn’t look very appetizing when it arrived on the table. I just wasn’t digging the green colour... I guess I was expecting the green curry to be a lighter green with a stronger coconut aroma? πŸ˜‚ It smelled a bit too sour (I think from the lime).
.
The udon was okay, but could have been chewier and the pork chop pieces were very dry and tough. The taste wasn’t bad though, and it was much spicier than I had expected. That was a pleasant surprise, since I’m always down for some heat! πŸ”₯
.
Overall, I would say it was better than what I expected, and definitely dont regret trying it, but I would probably not order this again next time - going to try something else that’s new. πŸ˜…

Summer Fruit Tea Series from @onezotapioca

This is the mango green tea with coconut tapioca. It was my first time trying their coconut tapioca (I think it’s relatively new) so I was pretty excited about it! The drink itself was good and the tapioca was also good on its own, but I didn’t feel like it was a good pairing. I’ll try another combination next time! ☺️

It’s patio weather, and I’m enjoying it at @scaddabush!
.
It was actually my first time dining in the patio area here, despite having visited many times! Where have I been all this time?? πŸ˜‚ They have such a comfortable patio scene with a nice canopy setup!
.
This is the roasted fennel and sausage fettuccine. Small is $14.73 and regular is $18.22. The one in the pic is the small size, which I found to be a decent portion for an entrΓ©e without being too stuffed.
.
I loved the combination of ingredients in this pasta, though I didn’t seem to taste too much of the roasted fennel. I also liked that it has a bit of heat from the spicy tomato cream sauce. The fettuccine is also made in-house and the texture was perfect!

Tiramisu soufflΓ© pancake from @fuwafuwapancakes, $14.50.
.
We were told the wait would be 30 mins but ended up waiting about an hour in line... but it was a nice day, so it wasn’t too bad. They were also offering water to the people in line, so that was a pleasant surprise too.
.
As for the pancakes, they were delicious! Very fluffy and the tiramisu flavour was amazing. If you love tiramisu, you’d probably love this too! It also wasn’t too sweet. Highly recommend.

Visited the newly opened @tastypot in Richmond Hill (Times Square plaza).
.
This is the medium spicy beef hot soup with vermicelli. You can customize the spiciness level and the type of carbs (rice, rice noodles or vermicelli). It came with a lot of stuff inside - lots of beef, napa, enoki mushrooms, taro, tomato, tofu, corn, meat balls, clams, fried tofu skin, imitation crab meat, and fish cakes. It also comes with cilantro, so make sure to let them know to exclude it if you’re not a fan like myself.
.
It comes in a pot with a fire under it to keep it hot throughout your meal. The soup was delicious and full of flavour. I actually loved the clams in my soup. Though it only came with two, it was enough to add a distinct and sweeter flavour to the soup.
.
It also came with a drink - black or green tea. Not milk tea, just tea with sugar and ice. I chose the green tea, and no regrets. It was actually pretty good. They do offer bubble teas here, but it’s not part of the combo. Maybe I’ll try it one day. They look legit. ☺️
.
They’re offering a 15% off discount for their grand opening special, so better go and make use of it while it lasts! πŸ˜… This would have been $14.99 without the discount, which I find a little on the pricey side, especially for lunch.
.
I was impressed with the food and overall experience here. Will be back to try other soups, like their cheesy milk hot soup.

I’ve been meaning to visit @cafelandwer for a while now and I’m so glad I finally did! It’s such a chill and cozy space with nice decor, great food and friendly staff! I brought my out-of-town friend here and no regrets. We were both impressed!
.
This is the roasted mushroom cream truffle fettuccine (can get Campanelle instead if you wish), $17. The pasta is freshly made in-house and is perfectly al dente.
.
The cream sauce is not overly heavy and is flavoured with garlic, truffle oil and fresh thyme - love this combo: aromatic, super delicious and flavourful. Also, as a huge lover of mushrooms, I was so pleased with the generous amount of mushrooms they put in this dish. You can tell they use high-quality ingredients too.
.
I had an AMAZING first impression of this place. Everything was perfect - great vibes, amazing food, superb staff. Definitely recommend and will definitely be back. πŸ’•

I love the canvases that are up at the @cocoteaontario stores. Not sure if all locations have them but the ones I’ve been to around Markham/Richmond Hill do! And as usual, I’m getting my mid-afternoon bubble tea fix. πŸ’•πŸ˜‹

Wuhan Noodle 1950 - it’s a small space and I believe it opened not too long ago(?). I like the decor and setup. The guy serving us was also super nice and polite, though it was a bit difficult to order due to the language barrier.
.
This is the spicy beef rice noodle soup, $9.99. The soup was delicious. The good part of the sauce is at the bottom so you’ll need to mix it before eating. I wish it were more spicy and also hotter in temperature - it came warm. The pieces of beef were really tough and dry. The portion was also pretty small. πŸ˜”
.
With our entrees, we were given the choice of a free pop or BOGO juice (watermelon or cucumber). We went with the watermelon juice, which was $5.99 for one and the second was free. It was refreshing but nothing special. I definitely wouldn’t order this if there wasn’t a deal.
.
Overall, I felt the taste of the food was good but I was not impressed with the food as a whole (small portion, temperature, and toughness of the meat). Though I’m glad I tried this place and the service was great, Unfortunately i will probably not be visiting again anytime soon.

Popcorn chicken lunch bento from Papa Chang’s, $7.99.
.
Chicken was juicy and flavourful. I still prefer the popcorn chicken lunch box from Tai Ping Hsiang at Metro Square (close to Warden and Steeles) more. The chicken is crispier and you have more options to choose from for the sides... not to mention their sides are amazing! I wasn’t too crazy about the sides here.

I couldn’t decide between the Hokkaido oolong MT and the Hokkaido roasted MT, so I decided to ask the question in my story and got so much quick feedback! You guys are the best! πŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ’•
.
I was beginning to lean towards the Hokkaido roasted tea and the poll results showed that 100% of the voters (from time of order and time of post) chose the same thing! πŸ™Œ Do great minds think alike or WHAT?! πŸ’•πŸ˜‚
.
Anyway, this is the Hokkaido roasted milk tea for $6.79, plus an additional $0.75 for tapioca. I wasn’t wowed by the drink. I felt it tasted ok but the flavour of the roasted tea was not prominent at all. I really like the taste of strong and fragrant tea, which this drink did not offer either. The tapioca today tasted a bit over cooked (I.e. too soft) but I think this is just a one-off. Their tapioca is normally pretty decent.
.
On a side note, one of my friends ordered the Hokkaido matcha MT and after trying a bit of her drink, I’ve decided I’m getting that for myself next time. It was so yummy! πŸ’―

When the menu is HUGE at @sugarmarmalade.official and your friend still picks out the exact item as you... πŸ˜‹πŸ˜‹
.
This is the fresh mango sago (in fresh mango juice with a coconut milk base), $5.49. This was so satisfying and we both finished it way too quickly... every last drop of it - literally poured the remaining few drops from the bowls and onto our spoons!! πŸ˜‚ It’s mango season, so I need to make the most of these sweet mangos! 😍

Visited Allencourt Family Restaurant Fish & Chips for the first time and I was soooo pleasantly surprised!
.
It’s located in a random plaza near Bayview and Major Mackenzie and tucked away in the corner, so it’s quite hidden.
.
This is the haddock fish with fries (can choose slaw or salad too) for $13.45. It was so fresh when it arrived at our table. Freshly fried, very hot, super crispy and the perfect golden colour!
.
The portions were generous in size too. I wish the fish were thicker though so I could taste more of the fish, but it still tasted pretty good! The fries were sooo yumms! Everyone has their own preference for the type of fries and these were definitely my type! The inside was a bit mushy but the outside was crispy! 😍
.
Lastly, the service was AMAZING and they definitely deserved the extra tip!

When the drinks are delicious, weather is amazing and literally everything is smiling right back at you πŸ˜‰ on this perfect Sunday afternoon... how can I ask for anything more? πŸ˜‚
.
This is the roasted bubble milk tea and it’s REALLY good and refreshing! I’m a huge fan of roasted tea flavours and @happylemoncanada definitely know what they’re doing! πŸ˜‹ Their tapioca is also really good - perfect level of chewiness! πŸ’•
.
Alsooo, in case you didn’t know, they have recently opened up a new location in Scarborough (near Midland and Finch). YAY for more bubble tea uptown! 😍

Thank you @therealdklo @dkloevents for the invite and to @happylemoncanada for the drinks. Disclaimer: though I did not pay for the drinks, opinions are always my own.

Trying out Lucky Noodle (Denison and Kennedy) for the first time today, and... is it just me or is it pretty much an EXACT mirror of Deer Garden (DG), except cheaper!! ☺️☺️ They offer pretty much the same soup bases, toppings, noodles and sides! The layout of their order sheet is pretty much the same too!!
.
This is my β€œusual” at DG - Malay laksa with thick noodles - but I decided to order it here to compare the two. The soup base is VERY similar in taste, but DG seems to have a bit more coconut and heat compared to this place. DG is $11.50, while this one was only $8.99. I liked the hot milk tea here much more than DG too.
.
The waitresses seem a bit rude though. They either don’t respond when you ask for something or they give you a dirty and confused look, haha. It’s not that they didn’t understand though. They brought me all the right stuff. Oh well. πŸ€·β€β™€οΈπŸ€·β€β™‚οΈ

Sea urchin and ikura cuttlefish squid ink spaghetti from @blackbeartoronto.
.
I’ve tried a lot of items on the menu here and so far, this was probably the most disappointing one.
.
I felt this was way overpriced for $16.99. Sure, there was the sea urchin but ONE ring of the cuttlefish seemed very minimal... the overall portion was small too.
.
I’ve had squid ink pastas before but none have left such a dark mark on the tongue/lips/teeth/cutlery before haha. So definitely avoid ordering this on a first date! πŸ˜‚ The overall taste was also very bland.
.
I see a lot of potential with this restaurant, since they try to create unique dishes, plate them nicely and service is great, but unfortunately, I find prices are too high and portions are too small.

Can always count on @hotstar_canada to satisfy my fried chicken cravings! πŸ˜‹πŸ˜‹πŸ˜‹
.
This is the original large fried chicken, $9.99. You can choose a number of flavours: salt and pepper, spicy, seaweed, plum or curry. I chose β€œspicy”, but found it lacking a bit of heat so maybe I’ll tell them to add more spicy powder next time. πŸ”₯ Flavour was good though!!
.
The chicken is one HUGE piece of chicken which made me really happy when holding and eating it! πŸ™„πŸ˜‹πŸ˜ The chicken was also incredibly juicy and crispy, as it was freshly made. I want more more more! πŸ˜‹

Back at @deergardensignatures for my favourite Malay laksa noodles in soup. ❀️ Made this summery-day even better, and no, it’s not too hot for noodles. 🍜😍
.
That being said, I can’t believe the price now - it just keeps going up! It is $11.50 now. I’m pretty sure it was $10-something during the winter months. πŸ˜ͺ
