Independent coffee shops are popping up all over Markham, and the one with the biggest hype has to be Alchemy Coffee. Located in a strip plaza off Highway 7, it’s reputation brings customers in despite the sparse parking.
I first started writing this post over two years ago, but sadly, was not able to perfect the matcha latte until now. There is definitely room for improvement, especially with my latte art skills, but I am finally satisfied with the end product.

I want to highlight all the meals I’ve had in the last few weeks that have been memorable enough for me to want to go back and have them again.

Cravings for karaage and takoyaki can now be filled at Moji Japanese Eatery in the Peachtree Plaza.
Another memorable drink – the Tokyo Fog at Nohohon Tea Room. Matcha latte with vanilla is probably my favourite twist on matcha thus far.
This meal was memorable because we were sitting inside shivering while eating our tacos. I think this is the first time I ever saw my breath while eating indoors… On the plus side, I managed to not make a mess, which is not an easy feat at Seven Lives.
Taking it back home… cauliflower buffalo wings. I made this twice so far and its so delicious and satisfying. While making these, I keep thinking “what vegetable should we have with our wings?” before remembering that our wings are vegetables. Mind blown.
