We joined the lineup for the first row, and were handed paper plates, plastic utensils, and Styrofoam cups. These items were intended for sampling use throughout the course of the booth visits, but were later found to be a challenge to wield amidst frigid conditions and overbearing winds.
A scheduled Mango Cheesecake pick-up led us in the direction of Kensington Market. Along the way, we passed Dak Lak's first foray into the downtown core on College St.
When the storefront appeared too congested for my liking, I spun on my heel and pointed to San Cosme instead.
At $8.95 plus tax, it was a stunningly large portion. Mild regrets were uttered upon laying eyes on the subject. The bun appeared tough and dry, while its contents greasier than preferred. In order to succeed in consuming the monster, one first needed to rip off the edges of the bun. Either my mouth wasn't wide enough, or the bun was simply too sturdy.
Del Chavo was a decent sandwich, but my appetite was gradually diminishing. I only managed to polish off half before surrendering. As economic of a supper solution it was, I wasn't very hungry. It was a shame to see such a meal go to waste.
Both CoCo and One Zo featured lengthy lineups, and thus we continued marching northbound until chancing upon a relatively empty Crimson Teas.
Lavatory woes aside, I would return to Crimson Teas in a heartbeat for a proper taste of their hot Milk Tea. greasy odours aren't my cup of tea, though I have few reasons not to invest in a four-dollar cup of delicious milk tea. (Who knew bathroom hunts could lead to such interesting new discoveries?)
