i went to toronto with a friend for the weekend. we went to see the tim burton exhibit (it was good, very interesting, but a bit small). we didn’t have much time, but we made the most of it.
we ate at epicure on queen street w. i had a burger with fries & their home salad, he had a greek salad. both were good. the ambiance inside was nice, our waitress was super friendly (and from montreal!), and the price was good.
we checked out fressen, also on queen street w, before going to epicure. i wanted to at least check out their menu, to see what they were serving. they’re a vegan restaurant. the menu seemed interesting, but i wasn’t sure if there was something i could safely eat, since my own eating restrictions don’t always match up well with vegan eating. next time.
saturday morning, we ate at café crêpes on queen street w. i had a dark chocolate & banana crêpe. it was ok. wish i’d taken a second crêpe though.
managed to get to miss cora’s kitchen, in the kensington market, just before it closed around 5:15pm. we got ourselves some tasty mini cupcakes (lemon, carrot and swirled chocolate). i especially liked the lemon one. they all had a great texture & taste, not too sweet. my friend got himself a big piece of brownie, and i also took a butterscotch bacon cookie. it was interesting. good for the first few bites, then just ok. i thought it could’ve used a bit more bacon, it was more sweet than salty. but good :)
i don’t know why, but i HAD to eat sushi in toronto, so saturday night i went to to-ne sushi, near our hotel. the restaurant looked nice, the staff was friendly, the service was fast (less than 15 minutes between the time i ordered and i got my sushi), and the sushi was delicious! i took 3 rolls (boston, sky dome and tiger eye), don’t remember exactly what was in them (one was salmon & avocado, another was tempura shrimp & avocado, and the third was salmon, tuna & cream cheese, all with other things i can’t remember). two of them came with a sweet sauce drizzled over them, it was almost like dessert sushi. i ate about half, and kept the rest for breakfast the next morning.
