I love London Fog. Put London Fog in a food item, and I’ll probably try it. A lot of ice cream shops make Earl Grey ice cream, but London Fog ice cream is harder to come by. The difference lies in the creamier vanilla flavour that is not guaranteed in the Earl Grey versions.
Earnest easily makes the best London Fog ice cream (or London Fog flavoured anything) that I have ever had. Earnest, please sell your ice cream to the rest of Canada!
I finally bit and got an external microphone for my camera, and decided to test it. Due to the recent heatwave, I made an iced matcha latte. When I reviewed the footage, I really enjoyed the sounds of the latte-making process, and decided to keep them in instead of overlaying with music.
This is not quite ASMR as I filmed this next to my fridge and there is some hum from the machinery, and the counter I was using was the glass range, so there were some sharp drops. Hope you enjoy it nonetheless!
We recently participated in the Sporting Life 10K for Camp OOCH. After eating bagels and bananas on the lawn of Coronation Park, we shuffled our way back to the starting line. Seeing as we were rarely in the Mount Pleasant area, we quickly looked up brunch places and decided to try out the Homeway.
Thanks to QuirkyAesthetics, I decided to wake up one morning and film the process of making a matcha latte. Unfortunately for me, my frother was not cooperating and I was surprised with stiff foam – so a foamy cat matcha latte was born.
I’ll continue practicing and update later – enjoy!
We met several people in Yellowknife that recommended one place; Bullock’s Bistro. Their speciality is fish, and it’s pretty much the only thing on the menu (we called to ask for vegetarian options for our fellow vegetables – their only option: salad and fries).
We came here on our last night in Yellowknife, and in retrospect, not the greatest idea.
The first international location of Konjiki Ramen landed in Toronto in late 2017. As my friends and I are always up for a good bowl of ramen, we decided to pay a visit on the coldest day of the year in hopes there would be a shorter line.
Here begins the long overdue summary of my Europe trip, the food-centric version. If you were curious about other aspects, it is currently about 2/3 of the way through here.
Amsterdam. The Netherlands. Meat and potatoes. So many potatoes…
My favourite part was definitely the beer, cheese, and desserts. I must say I wasn’t terribly impressed by Dutch food other than frites.
The best start to the day: stroopwafels and tea. My favourite stroopwafels were the honey ones from Albert Heijn. I would also highly recommend trying one fresh from a street vendor!
Craft beer at Oedipus Brewery. I’m not generally a huge beer fan when it comes to domestic beers at home, but the beer here was so delicious that it made me rethink my feelings for beer. Highly recommend trying some craft breweries over a bottle of Heineken!
And here marks the best coffee I’ve had thus far; the honey vanilla latte macchiato in Den Haag. Presentation, taste, and cafe decor is just about perfect at the Barista Cafe here.
One of my favourite pasta dishes has to be spaghetti carbonara. I found that carbonara was not a readily available dish at most restaurants, and so the first carbonara dish I ever ate was made by yours truly. To date, I’ve had it only a handful of times at restaurants, while I’ve made it several times at home.
Some people are very protective over carbonara; many denounce the use of any meat other than pancetta, no peas, no milk or cream, etc. I actually love variations, but I tried to keep it simple with items found at most grocery stores.
Carbonara is a dish best eaten right away as it turns dry when left over. With that in mind, this is a recipe that feeds one. Adjust accordingly. Continue reading Carbonara for one
When looking for places to eat in Berlin, House of Small Wonder popped up among the top recommendations. After seeing photos from a couple of friends who were in Berlin just before I was, I was determined to pay a visit. I didn’t even know what the menu was like; it was the above photo that drew me in.
