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!
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.
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.
I was pretty sad when I found out Kung Fu Tea Shop closed their location on Dundas and University two years ago. It was my go-to spot for bubble tea when I was downtown and I would go out of my way to get my fix.
So I was pretty excited when they finally re-opened on Spadina, with a much bigger location and definitely with more foot traffic.
I was a bit surprised when I realized I never wrote anything about The Alley – known as Diagon Alley elsewhere in the world, they opened up last summer in the Commerce Gate Plaza, and has just opened a new location on Main Street Unionville.
