Many people asked me what considers good food as a foodie. Most of the time I answered that I don't have one specifically. My non direct answer would be "it is the value of money that I paid for and the quality of food and service from the restaurant that I received" will determine that. For example, my birthday dinner at Michelin 3 stars 🌟🌟🌟 @jean_georgesnyc is one of the best experience I won't forget. The overall customer service, the attention to details, the attentivenes of the waiters, the cleanliness of the restaurant, the quality and plating of the food are all on point. Of course there are some hit and misses but nobody is perfect. This is my 4th time dining here and every experience is consistent. Is $100+ USD dollars lunch here worth it? To me..hell ya.

It's finally Friday and it is the day where we reward ourselves for all the hardwork we have done during the week. Ice cream, bubble tea, cheesecake, tarts, pastries....go for it all! Eat now and worry about the calorie count later 😚. One of my goto place for Asian desserts gotta be @mabugeneration. They have all the Asian desserts possible and some of them are weird and funky looking like the rain drop cake that looks very beautiful for the gram. Cheers to all the yummy desserts and worry about life later. .

We finally have a heat wave we all been desperately crying for! What's better then survivng this heat wave than sipping on a nice cold COFFEE SLUSH & FOUR SEASON OOLONG MATCHA SALTY CREAM from the new @onetencafe. I finally found a cafe that I really liked and it's only walking distance from my house. If you ask me why I like this place so much, that's because they actually use REAL ingredients instead of powder. If you see Taro Slush that is purple, this is for sure powder with food coloring. You sure won't see that in here. .

After living in the city for so long, there are times when you just want to get away from the heavy traffic and take a stroll to smaller towns but don't want to drive too far away. Located just around 40min drive north of Toronto, I discovered a nice booming town of King City and the oldest restaurant in town @HogansRestaurant serving modern European cuisine. If you favour for a cozy environment, this hidden gem will definitely meet your needs as the building was used to be an inn during the 1800s. I actually spent 4 hrs here during my lunch as I kept on indulging at the tuna tartar and the seabass (highly recommended). This is what I call Life Away From The City. I will definitely be back here again soon. .

Today is National Ice Cream day! So I gave in to whoever created this day with an epic Mango Bread Toast with Ice Cream from @mabugeneration. This can for sure feed a family of four happily because we all went home full and satisfied. If you wanna know where this dessert came from, I can tell you that the origin from this crazy creation was from Taiwan. Now I wonder how Taiwanese can still stay very skinny from the the crazy night market food and epic dessert. It's only July now but I already wish it's September so I can go back to Taiwan and Japan for my food crawl. .

For the last couple years, I am starting to see baos as a replacement for fast food diet trend. In Toronto, you can see bao mainly sold at Viet or Japanese joints. But do you know what is exactly a "bao"? Its @abaotime for me to explain. Bao (包) is a direct sound alike translation from Chinese word "bread". Legends said that it was created during the Three Kingdoms dynasty China and had been a main diet in many Chinese cultures. They are often rolled into a round "ball" shape served steamed with some kind of stuffings inside. Majority of the time, they are eaten for breakfast or as a portable snack. As time passed, the Chinese bao culture was slowly adapted into many other ethnic cultures. Today, we often see them folded like a taco stuffed with beef, pork, chicken, or fish. .
Thanks to @dkloevents AND @abaotime for the invite. I get to sample so many types of yummy baos in one place! #sponsored

So today is National Fries Day which encourages everyone to eat fries! I also heard of National Donut Day, Pi Day, Taco Tuesday etc. Have you wonder who made these national days up? Are they marketing ploys from our fellow American Corporations? How come there is no National Bubble/Boba Tea Day? Or Popcorn Chicken Day? Or Noodle Day? That will be awesome! Maybe Asian corporation like @TenRenstea should start promoting such days 😃. I am counting on you to start a trend!
.
For those who don't know, @tenrenstea is the largest Taiwan Tea Shop chain with over 2000 stores globally. In Toronto, they serve all kinds of Taiwnawse cultural food, desserts, regular or flavored teas.

June-July marks the best season for strawberries. Do you know Ontario produces some of the best strawberries in Canada? With a lot of moisture this year, strawberries are extra big and sweet! So after spending $9 bucks to pick my own strawberry in a farm, I think my life is better behind a computer or phone screen. The back pain from the constant kneeling and the itchiness from mosquitos bites told me I should just remain indoors and buy a bucket from @costco. 😟. Jokes aside, I just found out that @sasakifinepastry is launching a WEEKENDS ONLY limited release of their hand made Strawberry Ichigo Daifuku Mochi!! The sweetness of the red bean paste with a bit of tartness from the strawberry paired with a soft pillowy shell make it the best summer treat ever! I dare you to try for yourself. .

What I like about Toronto is that everyone flocks to the streets during summer time as if we all just come out from hibernation. The problem with this is that you will never be able to find a seat at the patio in downtown core without waiting in line. Meanwhile, there is a lack of good patios in uptown Toronto unless you visit a tourist street like Main St, Unionville. Maybe because most uptown restaurants are Asian cuisine focused so they do not need one. Fortunately, the owners at @tapagriarestaurant saw the same problem and decide to build a new patio hotspot for the customers while serving Spanish tapas. Imagine yourself sitting at the patio with your friends chowing down some nice and cheesey Spanish meatballs while sipping down a cold jug of Sangria. Now that's what life in Toronto is like. .

I rarely post any drinks in my Instagram unless it is in a set of photos. That's because I never find a drink shot that is interesting enough to stand on its own. However, my drink from @hotmesstexmex deserves one. The SWEET THING which is coke and bourbon float uses buttermilk ice cream, Mexican CokeCola (uses sugarcane), Four Roses Bourbon Brown Sugar Pecans and Salted Dulce De Leche. Why did I find this special? That's because I love to drink bourbon, I drink Coke all the time, I love pecans, I love bacon and who doesn't love ice cream 🐷. It's everything I ever loved all combined in a single glass! To me, this is destiny and a dream come true. During the event, I tried to act like an adult but deep inside, I was jumping up and down like a kid when I saw this. 🤘🤘. .

One of the problem living in an urban city is that everyone always appears on a rush to go somewhere or do something. Sometimes, finding that 1 hr just to eat a decent meal can be a challenge. That's when restaurants like @makimyway_to will help me out. This low key, casual atmosphere Japanese restaurant with reasonable prices and friendly staffs are what I usually look for when I am on the go. AND if you are feeling indecisive, this restaurant speciality is that you can customize your maki roll in any way you want. Quick, easy, affordable and customizable..sounds like a winwin formula to me.

Happy 4th of July to my American friends! But don't forget today is Taco Tuesday! What's better than celebrate this occasion with a nice and flavorful Taco. Last week, I visited a TexMex restaurant in downtown Toronto @hotmesstexmex. This place is so unique as eating in this place makes you feel like you are actually in Mexico. This nice little restaurant along with yummy American Mexican fusion food and many unique cocktails makes it an ideal city escape after work. I just wish I am actually in Cancun now instead of working in my office! FYI..you have to order the Coke and Bourbon Float!! .
