El Trompo…..Augusta Ave, Toronto

Food & Drink

Probably the best tacos I’ve had in TO. With such a large range of specialty tacos to choose from, it’s hard to go wrong. We decided to try a Jamaica ($1) which tasted like sweetened fruit punch in a kid-sized cup and El Pastor, pork tacos with pineapple. The sweetness of the pineapple with the coriander is so delicious. Each order comes with 6 tacos. Make sure to also try their homemade guacamole!

Dessert at Milestones…..Dundas St W, Toronto

Food & Drink

Decided to grab drinks and dessert after our ramen dinner at Sansotei. We ended up sharing a Decadent Duo Dessert ( Ganache Torte and White Chocolate Cheesecake) Great pairing. The cheesecake was super light while the Ganache Torte was made of rich Belgian chocolate. I’ve been to Milestone’s at different locations before, and I’m pretty sure only this one has creepy plastic dolls in the washroom. It’s so out of place from the rest of the decor, but they made me laugh so I’ve included a picture of that too. Can you spot the naked doll?

House of Gourmet in Chinatown…..Dundas St W, Toronto

Food & Drink

We always end up eating in a Chinatown restaurant when we go to visit my grandparents and this time was no exception. House of Gourmet is quickly becoming one of our favourite spots because of their delicious food and super fast service (but honestly, I have never been in a Chinese restaurant that didn’t have speedy service, do those even exist?)

Featured below is not for the health conscious. We ordered roasted duck, cold cut chicken, fried Kobe noodles with beef, sizzling tofu, oysters, and also fried crab which was beyond yummy. Didn’t realize until the end of the menu that there were no veggie plate, but oh well. Everything tasted great!
