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.

Little Pebbles

One of my favourite types of cake has to be the chiffon cake; so when QuirkyAesthetics suggested stopping by Little Pebbles for some cake, I readily agreed.

Located in Kensington Market, they have a sign outdoors advertising coffee and Japanese desserts that certainly captured the attention of many passer-bys.

Mildred’s Temple Kitchen

Mildred’s Temple Kitchen was definitely the top of my list when it came to brunch options – the endless stories I heard about their blueberry buttermilk pancakes were enough to entice me.

Saving Grace

We were in search of a brunch place to continue our monthly brunch sessions back when Pig was still in Toronto; we decided on Saving Grace without much expectation.

We headed there early and was surprised to see a line of about fifteen people already there; the restaurant opened and the small space filled up quickly.

Nothing is quite as beautiful as colourful food – especially when it’s naturally so. I love trying new combinations to get inspiration for my own creations. The pictures from featuring the bowls from Kupfert & Kim have long intrigued me, and I finally had the chance to pop in during lunch.

Khao San Road 2.0

Khao Soi ($16)

Khao San Road is probably one of Toronto’s favourite restaurants, and they know it. After taking a year hiatus when moving locations, many of my friends were eager to go back for their KSR fix. While their Charlotte St restaurant is a huge improvement, being back there again reminded me of the same gripes I had with their old location.
