Are you a cake lover? How would you snap a photograph when you have 7 beautiful cakes? That happened to me when I visited @chi_patisserie in North York. All of the cakes were made in store and were so beautiful!!! The challenge of shooting 7 cakes on the table was that the shot was too wide and too tall for even my height. So I end up putting everything on the grey tone floor and tried to color coordinate the plates. Everyone in the store looked at me but I don't really care at that point. After shooting and devouring the cakes, I can't even decide which one was my fav as each was so unique in flavor. The Rice Wine cake appealed to me the most as the owner tried to combined Shanghai 桂花 osmanthus rice wine with a western cake. Love the innovation and presentation! Definitely be back for more cakes. . Matcha Seasame, oolong peach, fenchiew mojito, rice wine, coco passionfruit, mango grapefruit, chocolate dirty dirty . .

Sushi and hand roll lovers, there is a new player in town. Just opened recently @naramisushi is a sushi/handroll bar that reminded me of my Japanese food experiences in NYC without the high end price. The interior design is by far one of the most appealing in Toronto. There are no tables but a U shape wooden bar surrounding the chefs at work. Their specialty which are the handrolls are made on point. I just love that crunchy seaweed sound every time I took a bite. My fav was the lobster handroll as I can taste the bouncy lobster meat and the crunchy seaweed together. Their lunch and appetizers menu are also economical compare to other downtown establishments. This place is ideal for a date night if you are into sushi, handrolls and sake! . . Thanks @hungryhungrylam and @naramisushi for the invite. . . . Follow @foodie.fob for more food adventures. . . .
If tomorrow is end of the world, what are the two food you want to eat? I think I will eat a XL Meat Lovers Pizza and the biggest & juiciest Burger you can find in town. @topgunsteak has been on my radar for some time now but I just don't have a chance to go. That's because I know I will need to combine 2 meals in 1 if I ever decide to go there. It will take some life strategic planning 😉. After devouring the Maverick Burger, I was in a food coma for the next couple hours. It was yummy and delicious..but the drive back home after this burger was challenging as I kept falling asleep. When people say do not drink and drive, I say do not burger and drive!! .
MAVERICK: Two beef patties, two slice cheddar cheese, grilled mushrooms, fried egg, rosemary garlic aioli, lettuce, tomato, pickles . .
