I love looking out the window at storefronts while on the bus – it serves as both entertainment as well as an indicator that I am heading in the right direction as I do have a penchant for hopping on a bus and then realizing I never checked exactly which bus I just entered. I started noticing Katsuya on one of these trips as it seemed a little out of place just between the two major hubs for food along that strip of Yonge.
Several weeks after, I was discussing with QuirkyAesthetics on where we should eat, and the thought of Katsuya popped up. In the interim, I had seen deliciously cheese-filled photos of their katsu which solidified my interest.
Udon: one of my favourite noodles in all its forms, fresh or frozen. It is surprisingly difficult to find places that make udon delicious; oftentimes it comes overcooked and in a sad broth.
The first time I went to MeNami, we actually had plans to go elsewhere but the chilly autumn weather led us through their large blue doors. We thankfully were seated straightaway at the bar, and got straight to ordering.
Located in neo-Koreatown, Buk Chang Dong Soon Tofu has many locations around Toronto. We decided to stop by on a chilly Saturday night, and arrived at the Yonge location looking forward to some warm soup.
