As I create this post, my neighbours are playing "Sugar" by Maroon 5 and it feels so great to be happy with where I am at with blogging. Besides that random note, I am excited to share with you two new restaurants we, (Cecile, Olivia and I) visited in Toronto.
We visited and explored Queen Street West, also the second coolest neighbourhood in the world voted by Vogue. I thought I knew Queen St. W. and didn't think it was anything special because I was bored of it. I was/am definitely wrong.
Our first stop before we went to grab a bite to eat was OCAD University. If you don't know OCAD is an arts and design university and they had their 100th exhibition showcasing students' work from the year. It was incredible and it made me think of creativity. How do students come up with such creative pieces? What are they inspired by?
Hunger crept upon us and Cecile found out about a new spot to eat on Queen St. W. called "Queen Street Warehouse." Apparently every meal on the menu is 4.95 and this made me skeptical and hesitant but i'm always up for new restaurants to try out!
So we went, and besides the fact that our food took a while to come (probably because we ordered so much), everything was way better than I expected.
I ordered a kale and chicken wrap that came with a side of fries. So much yum!
A quinoa salad with avocado and apple slices!
And you can never go wrong with a juicy burger....
I can't wait to go back and try a bowl of their pasta and drinks.
If you're in the area, I highly recommend checking out Queen Street Warehouse and while you're there, stop by this famous graffiti wall in Toronto, also my favourite wall in Toronto.
I have this thing with macarons. Maybe it's a stereotypical blogger thing but I really enjoy a good macaron. My friend Olivia recommended we go to a macaron store called Butter Avenue, right on Queen St. W.
Let me mention, I've had quite the variety of macarons from different locations and cities and these macarons were by far the best I've ever had. No exaggeration, 100% truth. I do wish they had more variety in flavours like cotton candy but the actual macarons themselves taste remarkable.
My favourite flavour - sea salt caramel. The centre is filled with the real stuff; gooey and thick caramel.
I'm not a strawberry falvoured type of person but I went with the white chocolate strawberry macaron as well. It's now probably my second favourite after sea salt caramel beating out chocolate *shocker*
This day was good fun with yummy foods in Toronto. I wore a loose top from RW&Co. to cover up my food belly.
You might recognize this Rebecca Minkoff cross body bag from other posts or even my Instagram profile. It's my current favourite bag that I can't get enough of. You can dress it up or down and it fits just the right amount of stuff that prevents you from carrying too much: A wallet, sunglasses with it's case and your phone along with some beauty bits.
Which bag is your fave at the moment?
Thank you to my friend Olivia for taking my outfit photos!
