On my trip to Toronto last November, I was exploring the Kensington area which is a really eclectic looking neighbourhood beside Chinatown. Just think lots of vintage shops and brightly coloured murals everywhere.
This is also where I found Millie Creperie! I had read about it briefly but didn’t make plans to visit but my friend and I happened to pass by so I couldn’t resist going in.
They serve a variety of sweet and savoury crepes and parfaits. We had already had a huge brunch so we just wanted a light snack. Read more
Last year when I was in Toronto, Hot Star Large Fried Chicken happened to have just opened! I had not intended to visit but we were passing by and there was a huge line up so we decided to join in. Hot Star is a well known chain in Taiwan.

This was the Lamb Shank’n Hash with with sauteed red onions, peppers, potatoes and two sunny side up eggs on top. The dish arrived in a large pan and pretty much any braised meat is good! I only had a small bite of this. Read more

The noodle bar is located on the first floor.
The seating area consists of some communal tables and it’s very spacious looking compared to places I’ve been to in Vancouver! But then again this is a famous restaurant chain and they’re inside a hotel. Read more
