Pun Cao Tong located at 550 York Regional Rd 7 in Richmond Hill

August 5, 2018:  I was in need of some turtle herbal jelly, so I decided to try out this Chinese dessert shop that I’ve noticed in the Times Square plaza at Leslie and Highway 7 in Richmond Hill.

(Its signage and menu says “Sweet Turtle Desserts” but online, they are known as “Pun Cao Tong (本草堂)“.  I’m guessing the English name is a newer rendition of their business name Continue reading

VYbE Dance Company located at 431 Alden Rd, Unit #7 in Markham

August 5, 2018:  My first time taking an urban choreography dance class! XD  I found out through this class that I have zero musicality in urban hip hop dancing XD.  What I can describe it is a robot (me) walking into a room full of parrots who can all dance in tune together.  Continue reading

August 4, 2018:  Now the title of this blog post might sound a little weird but that’s because the name of this restaurant is called “Union Chicken” and because there are currently two locations in Toronto, I had to specify that this location that I’m blogging about is at Union Station in downtown Toronto. 😀   Continue reading

Seven-Course Tasting Menu at Edulis Restaurant

 Edulis Restaurant menu cover

Edulis Restaurant located at 169 Niagara St in Toronto

August 2, 2018:  For our milestone birthdays this year, we decided to celebrate extravagantly with a tasting menu at Edulis.  A five-course tasting menu at Edulis Restaurant is currently priced at $65 while a seven-course tasting menu is currently priced at $85.

I’ve had plenty of experience with tasting menus before and absolutely love them.  I love that it’s a blind menu meaning that while you know that there will be five or seven courses coming, you don’t know exactly what the dishes Continue reading

July 31, 2018:  Ever since I saw the signage go up at a new strip mall of restaurants at the corner of Woodbine and Highway 7 signifying that a Nando’s would be opening up, I was so excited for it.  I’ve only had Nando’s once before but absolutely loved how tender and delicious the chicken was.  I was so excited that a location was opening up in Markham which was so close to me!
