Ryus Noodle Bar


I love ramen especially during the bleary and dreary weather. There are a lot of noodle bars in the city and its always difficult to choose which one to go to but one of the ones that I was introduced to was Ryus Noodle Bar. It’s a relatively relaxed atmosphere that is budget friendly. Every time I visit, I always order their Spicy Miso Ramen which makes me a bit lame but I am a creature of habit. The Spicy Miso Ramen varies on how spicy you want it and if you choose mild, its actually pretty good as it offers you a bit of a kick but not to the point where you have to keep drinking liquids.

Bang Bang Ice Cream


It is a bit cold right now to eat ice cream but last year I had the pleasure of being introduce to Bang Bang Ice Cream by some of my old colleagues. I can honestly say that while I have had ice cream, I have never had ice cream with Hong Style Waffles and I am pretty sure I can never go back.

Aside from Hong Kong Style Waffles, Bang Bang Ice Cream also offers other types of ice cream sandwiches from cookies to macarons. Depending on the time of day, the line ups can be a bit long but it is definitely worth a try!

Millie Pâtisserie


I have heard a lot about Millie Pâtisserie through word of mouth so after much waiting, I finally went and visited them. It is a bit on the pricy side but I definitely felt that they were worth a try. After trying their sesame and their green tea cheese cake tarts, I decided that to grab their famous mille-crêpe cakes to go so I can share some with my family. The mille-crêpe cakes come in different flavours from earl grey to matcha green tea and its a win-win selection all around.

Cluny Bistro & Boulangerie


One of the things that I have always loved to do is to try new desserts regardless of what time of the day it is. Whenever there is a new shop that I have not been to, I like going in and see what they are all about. The latest dessert that I have recently tried is from Cluny Bistro & Boulangerie located at the Distillery District. This pistachio/grape dessert is divine and I actually forgot what the real name is as I was too busy eating it. It is sweet but not overly sweet which suits works well with people who aren’t too keen on overly sugary desserts.

Squish Candies


I have always been more of a chocolate kind of a gal but recently I have been converted to the world of gourmet gummies. Squish is one of the newest companies founded in Montreal and I can honestly say I am in LOVE. They have a range of gummies from being fruity to cocktail flavours and while they seem a bit on the pricey side I can honestly say that you do taste the difference.

Ginger Snaps


One of my favourite pass times is to bake which can be a good and bad thing depending on who you ask. I like the feeling of eating freshly baked cookies but I am not going to lie when I say that I am more interested in eating than baking. Ginger snaps have been by far one of the easiest cookies I have ever made and the beauty of this recipe is that it is dummy proof. If you are feeling a bit bored and snackish, I can definitely recommend it for you to try.

Gyugyuya – Japanese Curry


One of the things that makes me proud of being from Toronto is the diverse options we have when it comes to cuisine. Prior to visiting Gyugyuya, I have never had Japanese curry which was rather funny  considering I have visited Japan before and I thought I tried almost everything.

I decided to order this tempura shrimp curry dish and it was amazing! I barely managed to finish it and while it looks small it was truly filling. One of the key difference with Japanese curry is that there is a bit of a kick to it but not over powering, its more savoury and I think if you can’t handle spicy foods it is worth a try.
