To be full in love and life is a challenge, to be full in appetite is a feast! My latest eating adventures in 2013 -
Brunch at Yew:
Mini donuts / pulled pork eggs benny / beef burger – early day itis is always fun.
(Jethro’s) I often dream about their country fried steak and banana chocolate chip french toast (One of my favorite foods..like, ever) / (Minami) brussel sprouts and Saikyo Miso Baked Sablefish and Shrimp Crab Dumpling
49th and Parallel / Fried Cornflakes french toast / Black Forest Bakery (Toronto) / Popeye’s Fried Chicken (Toronto)
Some folks have cheat days, I have cheat months – clearly a very successful month!
Dont worry, I can cook too. Homemade eats while in Toronto:
Choc chip pancakes with pears / curry quinoa with bocconcini & cucumber / broc chicken cheese casserole / spinach scramble, steak, avocado and biscuits
Pressed sushi galore, beautiful presentation too.
Waffle x banana x ice cream x nutella = BOMB.
Macarons / spicy garlic ramen heaven / hot pot !!!
The Black Hoof was a restaurant in downtown Toronto that we all ventured out to on a cold and snowy Sunday evening, the restaurant was small, and packed but had a cozy ambience that kind of let you know you were in for a treat! The best words to describe this experience are SINFUL, and INDULGENCE to the max:
Pulled pork tacos / Charcuterie / Hoof Larzo (basically fat that melts in our mouth) / bone marrow
oxtail & scallops / pulled pork tacos (ordered twice, they were that good)
Beef tongue on brioche / pork belly / Pop and chips blood pudding. The food was divine in an over the top way, best described as decadent dining! And all of the dishes above were prepared on one regular kitchen stove. Amazeballs eh?
fam din / sisters lunch / cousins catch up – food is best shared
All the fixings! Fried turkey / bombass spread / Nedege Patisserie panna cotta cake “Marie Antoinette” (omg i think of it all the time) and our cousins ritual oreo cake.
Gettin our bbt fix (thats what you get for photobombing!!) / desserts from Nigs / and my very first shaved ice experience.
And last but not least, yesterday’s dinner at Suika:
Short rib (melt in yo mouf damn good) / japanese pizza / spicy ramen / and 40oz steak … meat sweats are no joke.
I know its been a little quiet at the online Veeezyloves headquarters as of late but rest assured I am very much alive, going out and about stuffing my face with all the happy feelings I have. Eat well, live well. I’ll be back shortly, happy Monday xo.
