Canada Trip '12

This summer I went to Canada for my cousin's wedding.  I took way more pictures of food than I realized haha:

Surprise birthday party for my aunt!

Preparing the food

Sago - similar to bubble tea

I've never seen this much mini ensemadas together!

My dad

Beautiful presentation of the fruit bouquet

Yum... red velvet cupcakes

Eating time!

For my aunt

The youngins

The kids, well one of them, blowing the candles for my aunt

The bigger kids playing drinking games, can you guess which game?

Flip cup

I still wonder who put a cupcake in the red Solo cup...

Looking at my crepe being made at Toronto Eaton Centre 

Crepe De Licious

Veggie-Licious Crepe

Saw this place in Downtown Toronto

Tim Hortons, a must have when you're in Canada!  

At The Grand Hotel

Second Cup

Toronto Blue Jays game, followed by dinner at Gabby's

I think all the McDonald's I saw in Canada were renovated.
I had to take a picture of this chimney, so not used to seeing
one in a McDonald's!

I just had to be a tourist by taking a pic of the French words haha

My cousin's wedding reception took place at The Berkeley

After the wedding, my cousins and I went to Smoke's Poutinerie

Newspaper articles about this place

Ingredients

My Traditional Veggie Poutine- made w/ hand cut
 seasoned fries, rich brown gravy, and Quebec cheese curds

Nice little place!

After midnight we were heading back to my cousin's car.  On our way, we ran into her brother.  He wanted to come home with us, but had to eat first.  I was kind of reluctant to go to another restaurant because I knew I'd eat again.  Also, I didn't want to eat because it was so late!  We later ended up at Perfect Chinese Restaurant.  I saw a lot of mixed reviews on Urbanspoon, as for my experience, I loved the place!

I think this was the best fried calamari I ever had, it was indeed perfect!

Dim sum

Congee- this rice porridge was addicting!!
Perfect is officially a restaurant I always have to go to whenever I'm in Toronto!

Perfect Chinese Restaurant on Urbanspoon

The next day one of my cousins went to Lick's for breakfast.
I couldn't eat breakfast here it was too early to eat a hamburger!

All the cousins getting hot dogs in Downtown Toronto

A lot of condiments!

Mine!  I had a chicken hot dog, didn't notice a
big difference b/w this and a beef hot dog...

My last day in Canada, had to get something
from Tim Hortons!

Ketchup chips, only in Canada

Desserts for the family gathering from Lisboa Bakery & Grillhouse

I had Chick-fil-A Nuggets at the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky Int'l Airport.
Since there's no location here in Las Vegas, I had to try it.  It was pretty tasty!

Fat Boy

On my cheat day I ate at Fat Boy located on 4425 Stewart St Suite 107 (corner of Stewart St & Lamb Blvd).  It's a small fast food joint that serves hamburgers, pizzas, burritos, salads, smoothies (their syrups are homemade), milkshakes, and Mexican food:

Chencho Fries- a Fat Boy favorite!  These fries are topped with salsa verde, grilled onions, chopped chicken, and melted cheese:

Pastrami Boyger- beef patty topped with pastrami, mustard, grilled onions, pickles and mayo.  If you need a serious protein fix, this "boyger" is for you:

Fat Boy makes their meat patties daily and are never frozen.  Toppings and vegetables are prepared as needed, and buns are delivered to the restaurant fresh daily.  If you're feeling gluttonous, check out Fat Boy!

Flock & Fowl

If you're in the mood to eat a chicken dish, I highly recommend checking out Flock & Fowl.  This restaurant specializes in making Hainanese Chicken Rice.  It's a simple dish consisting of poached organic, free range chicken with marinated cucumbers and preserved mustard greens as seen in the photo below.  You may dip the chicken in ginger scallion sauce, house made sambal (chile), and house made soy sauce for more flavor/kick (not pictured).  Also, the sides to choose from are organic egg, Chinese sausage (lap cheung), chicken broth, or more chicken rice:

On the day we dined there, the Chicken & Poached Egg Congee was the special dish of the day.  Congeeis a rice porridge that's common throughout Asian countries.  It can be eaten plain, but usually comes with garnishes and sides:



We couldn't resist trying their steamed buns:

After I ate, I felt like I finished a home cooked meal, which is a rare feeling for me when eating at any restaurant.  Keep in mind this …
