Dalgona coffee has been making the rounds to the areas of the world affected by social distancing measures. Named after it’s similar taste and appearance to a popular street snack, this simple but interesting recipe uses easy-to-find ingredients to create a visually pleasing drink.

We had a lot of coffee, tea, lattes, and the like during our trip to Vancouver. Staying in Gastown, we were surrounded by coffee shops around every corner, and we tried a new one nearly every morning (and sometimes afternoon).
Upon arriving in Vancouver, we dropped off our bags and showered, and had lunch before stopping by for our first hit of caffeine. I went with my fail-safe London Fog, and was decently satisfied, but unbeknownst to me at the time, this would end up being our most-visited cafe. Continue reading Coffee Shops in Gastown→
We were about to commence a long hike along the McLehose Trail, and feeling lethargic, I went to the nearby 7-Eleven in search of milk tea. Instead, I found something I had heard of back in my university days; Coca-Cola Plus Coffee. Continue reading Spotlight: Coca-Cola Plus Coffee→
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.
I’m one of those people who have trouble concentrating at home. There’s always something to do, clean, watch, make, etc., and so I also find myself sidetracked or seriously distracted even when I manage to sit down and work. Studying or finding a place to work in Markham isn’t the easiest thing to do – libraries fill up fast here and aren’t that plentiful.
I love the cafe atmosphere of nursing a drink for a couple of hours while working, or just catching up with friends over a a cup of joe. There have been more coffee shops popping up over the last few years that offer exactly that. Continue reading Coffee Shops in Markham→
I was on the hunt for a place to work after dinner on a Tuesday night, and found Funky Munky Cafe. I wasn’t looking for bubble tea, but imagine my surprise when I walked in to find that they offered bubble tea in addition to coffee and tea.
