I’ve passed by this location many times in Hamilton and I finally decided to try it out. The decor is friendly with little elegant fixtures here and there. They also have a fun typographic chalkboard menu above the cashier. Pastries and desserts are displayed on the counter encased in glass. Once you are seated, you […]

Kekou Gelato

After grabbing some ramen at Ryu’s Noodle Bar down the street, we stopped by Kekou Gelato for dessert. Inside you’ll find a selection of gelato in steel canisters along with their kitchen where they develop Asian-inspired flavours. The interior is open, bright and welcoming. I started to get really excited to read all their flavours. […]

Tsukemen

This is one of three competing noodle restaurants in Baldwin Village. Their menu is minimal and clear, with beautiful photography. I haven’t been to a lot of ramen restaurants, but ordering was kinda different. Each ramen comes with a special sauce and there are six to choose from. They recommend that you add the special […]

Meat Platter 1

My brother suggested we try this restaurant for my birthday dinner, not only are they a restaurant but they are also butchers! It’s easy to find with plenty of parking spaces. They have a decent indoor dining area and on the patio. We were only inside for a brief moment because we decided to sit on […]

Mango Shaved Ice Cream

After our lunch at Lucky Red down the street, we made our way to Stay Cafeteria for dessert. I was blown away by the setting and decor. You don’t find much effort or thought put into fixtures and furnishings when it comes to Chinese cafes. It’s refreshing to see a restaurant with beautiful design in […]

Pork Belly Bao

Lucky Red caters to the same market as Banh Mi Boys on Queen Street. They also serve an almost identical menu, but Lucky Red uses steamed/baked bao’s instead of baguettes that banh mi’s are served in. While Banh Mi Boys serve mostly Vietnamese and Korean inspired items, Lucky Red serves mainly Chinese items. They are […]

Electric Mud BBQ

We made it just in time before having to wait at the bar or the door for a seat. We found a spot on the patio and shared a picnic table with another party of three, cozy. Good thing Torontonians are pretty friendly at popular and  hip-to-the-bone restaurants because we shared a table with the […]
