Trying out Patisserie 27!

 Patisserie 27 cakes

Patisserie 27 located at 401 Jane St in Toronto

Patisserie 27 is a cute little Japanese-French based bakery located in the west end of Toronto at 401 Jane Street.  After getting off at Jane Subway Station and taking one bus north for four stops, we arrived at the doorstep of Patisserie 27!  It was a one unit store and you could see the entire area of the shop from the outside.  There were just three tables and a couple of seats for you to dine in but for the most part, it seemed more of a take-away place.   Continue reading

 Jacuzzi at The Spa

The Spa, Fallsview Resort. March 2016

There’s no other way to relax for me than to go to a spa and have an amazing and relaxing body massage.  No matter what is happening, once I’m lying face down on that comfy bed with the warm and fluffy covers over me, I can totally relax.  This is a photo of one of the massage places that I go to occasionally.  It is The Spa at the Niagara Fallsview Resort and their amenities are amazing!  Pictured is the Jacuzzi that is nestled in a well designed and relaxing environment.   Continue reading

Sept 22, 2016 – 英皇冰室 Kings (H.K. Style Café)

After Willa and I had some fun trying to catch pokemon at Hoi Sham Park at To Kwa Wan, we walked to find a spot for lunch.  Unfortunately, the rustic Hong Kong style cafe that she wanted to bring me to was closed that day so we headed off to the closest shopping plaza (Grand Waterfront Plaza) and ate at Kings (H.K. Style Café) instead.   Continue reading

Jamie’s Italian Yorkdale restaurant opened sometime last year in December and I had heard lots about it seeing as it was chef Jamie Oliver’s very first restaurant in Canada and North America.  Jamie Oliver opened it in conjunction with the chef, Francesco Venditti, of Bar Buca at Yorkdale Shopping Centre.  Needless to say, I was very excited to try this celebrity chef’s restaurant!😀   Continue reading

Il Gelato di Carlotta (Niagara Falls)

Il Gelato di Carlotta gelato

Il Gelato di Carlotta located at 6380 Fallsview Blvd, Niagara Falls

We had some gelato at this relatively newly opened gelato shop at the Fallsview Resort in Niagara this past weekend!  The gelato at Il Gelato di Carlotta proved to be one of the best gelatos I have ever had — it’s like visiting Italy for their gelato but not having to get on a plane.  My mom and I got the split cup of two flavours to share:  tiramisu and mango.  The tiramisu tasted exactly like tiramisu cake and instead of using lady fingers, they used a spongy cake to soak the rum in so there were bits of rum-soaked cake in the actual gelato.  It was so good!   Continue reading
