Mr. Tonkatsu – Crispy, Fresh Japanese Pork Cutlets in Toronto

Saku in Vancouver is packed every night, and people can line up up to one hour to get a bite of the tonkatsu. In Toronto, Mr. Tonkatsu is the popular option for tonkatsu. There are various locations in Toronto, and we visited the one on Yonge Street in North York. I also heard that they also open one in Surrey. It features a variety of katsu sets, donburi, and soba. They also offer different proteins, such as pork, chicken, and fish. Similar to many similar stores, they provide free refills for rice, cabbage, and miso soup for all tonkatsu sets.

One of my Favourite Meal in Toronto: Pizzeria Libretto

It has been few weeks since I was back from Toronto, and I already missed its food and vibe. I want to share by far my favourite restaurant in Toronto, Pizzeria Libretto. There are various locations, and we went to one just steps away from our house on Danforth. It wasn’t too busy on a weekend evening, and it is spacious with comfortable seating.

An Adventure to Souffle Pancakes in Toronto

Now that I looked back to my Toronto trip, I noticed that I spent a lot of on Spadina Avenue and Kensington Market, which is just steps away. There are many independent cafes and shops here that  are yet to be explored. On my last day in Toronto, I decided to try Hanabusa Café, a cute, spacious café that specializes in soufflé pancakes. We also went to another popular soufflé pancake shop called Fuwa Fuwa on Bloor Street. Each has its specialty, so I’m excited to share my thoughts of these two cafes to you guys.

We tried the Jerk Chicken in both places, and I am about to tell you which one is my favourite.

Food Adventure to Kensington Market: Little Pebbles Cafe

Near Toronto’s Chinatown, there is a famous Kensington Market, where has many independent cafes and Jamaican restaurants. I visited a few cafes there, and I think this one is worth to mention – Little Pebbles Cafe. It is a petit Japanese cafe with very limited seatings, but it was super busy when we visited on a weekend. There is a tiny menu above the counter, as well as a glass shelf filled with cakes and canelés.
