New to the Yonge-Sheppard area is Tsujiri and Bake Code's recent Thai Iced Tea launch. When they first revealed a sneak peek of their summer drink collection, I had anticipated to have it tried before the commencement of the school season. A similar case with Pablo, I believe three specialty beverages were added to the menu the same weekend I departed for LA.
Bake Code was the first stop. The bakery opened early, which made it a suitable waiting/meetup location. A lineup had already formed at the cashier when I entered, so I took a seat and evaluated their assortment of breads and pastries while waiting for the line to dissipate.
Thai Iced Tea was available in two sizes: Regular and Large, with the latter weighing in at $5.00 before tax. The cost was on the hefty side, but, relative to their bakery goods and standard Chatime drinks, still fairly economic.
Chatime possesses their own rendition of Thai Iced Tea as well, but as a summertime exclusive. Bake Code's version was less rich in milk power, causing it to be more refreshing than satiating. Expectations were fulfilled with great confidence. I'll likely be trying this again.
Facing the south side of the building was Poke Eats - the only spot serving up marinated sashimi bowls in the vicinity. The storefront was comprised entirely of glass which simultaneously allowed sufficient illumination to fill the store and passerbys to catch a glimpse of skillful fish-slicing knifework.
