Roywoods

After spending the day in the sun at the Niagara Lavender Festival, we were ready for a low-key dinner. We decided going to Roywoods to pick up some jerk chicken for dinner.

OneZo Tapioca

A couple of my friends had been recommending OneZo Tapioca to me for quite some time now… but as I rarely passed by one, I hadn’t made a visit until a few weeks ago on one of our many adventures.

Earnest Ice Cream

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!

The Homeway

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.

Bullock’s Bistro

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.

When we got to Vancouver, our first priority was checking in to our hostel and taking a long-awaited shower (it had been 4 days!).

Our next priority was getting a good meal; Catch 122 Cafe Bistro was just down the street from us, so we decided to grab brunch at 3pm.

Kung Fu Tea Shop 2.0

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.
