Summerlicious hasn't really ever been my cup of tea, and neither have psychotic lineups in thirty plus humidity. In response to the preposterous prices of trendy food items, I've opted to stay within the ventilated indoors to formulate my own recipes, or grab quick bites throughout the city between errand-running.
1) Sufficiently satisfying sushi from Mac's
The portion size could have been larger for the price point, the rolls a little less dry, and the salmon sashimi a tad fleshier, though the quality of service and pickled ginger were above average for a food court stall.
3) The rare Costco run means hot dogs and towering swirled Soft Serve cones
5) Utilizing leftovers to scrape together a ham- and cauliflower-enhanced Japchae
6) Bringing packed food is the obvious method of enjoying Wonderland economically
The Silk Road event at STC provided exposure to the various styles of Middle Eastern food and successfully introduced my palette to Afghan street food that woould have otherwise never entered the equation. Having just secured a duo of 2 Ladies and Lemon King from CoCo and in desperate need of sustenance following a strenuous Heartland run, Naan and Kabob's location at Bristol/Hurontario seemed a fitting choice.
Cold Brew is soothing summer beverage that is usually heavily marked up at independent coffee shops in the downtown core, despite being one of the easiest to recreate at home. To shave off the associated cost of indulging in this delectable drink, I took to purchasing a box of their Chocolate Coconut-flavoured Cold Brew within days of its release.
