Since my last post I've been even busier with school and work (taking third year courses ended up being more overwhelming than I though). My schedule has been work, school, shopping and eating and repeat x100 times over. Hopefully you guys won't mind the gigantic catch-up post, here we go~
A few weeks ago I caught up with a long-time, but haven't seen her in an equally long time friend, Nori! Looking back, I can't believe we didn't take any pictures together... I completely regret it. I haven't seen her for about five years and it was just a wonderful night of catching up and drinking a lot of sangria and good food at JOEY. If you're reading this, I will see you soon after I drag myself through the rest of school this term!
Dunk n Dip
I also finally had time to check out one of Mississaua's newest and most recently talked about dessert places: Dunk n Dip. They're located on a street near Lakeshore (Port Credit) in a little boutique like cafe (it's very easy to miss it when you turn on the street) there's parking available at nighttime in front of it so it's super convenient! The prices are cheap - similar to Demetres, cheaper than Spin and what enticed me to go was always the dessert pictures that everyone kept on posting! I went with Stephen and one of our other friends.
Anyways our menu choices came super quickly! The food was decent and the fruit was fresh but I found their chocolate to be incredibly dull. I love heaps of fruit though, so I'll probably be back!
Other food cravings around that time were Earls and Moxie's Square One. I absolutely love Earl's, and have grown to love it even more when JOEY is just too far and I'm craving spinach dip or soup or a great bellini. In terms of Moxie's... I think it sucks now. I love dips and this was the first time I ordered their Goat Cheese Dip and I didn't enjoy it. Also the bread given was so squishy and soft... what was I possibly supposed to scoop up with soggy bread?
It was also Stephen's birthday last week! I pre-ordered tons of macarons, chocolates, and a cake because he loves macarons and what place is better than Butter (in Ontario)? For the past two weeks you were able to pre-order special edition heart macarons and for the first time ever, chocolates! Tomorrow is the last day, but only for pick ups and in-store purchases so go go go!
The heart macarons (6 in a box) are $23.00 tax included and features some of their signature flavors. There was also a lemon that was included that was perfectly tangy! I wish they made a lemon macaron to purchase. The chocolates come 8 in a box and are $22.00 tax included. The colours of the heart are supposed to tell you what flavour the chocolate is, but it was a huge guessing game for me. I enjoyed some flavours (matcha, lemon, coffee, vanilla, chocolate) but some flavours I couldn't figure out or tasted too strong. As cute as the chocolates were, I definitely won't be giving their chocolates another try (sorry Butter!). And as always, another 20 box of macarons with all the flavours we love!
For Stephen's cake I ordered a medium sized Terre et Neige (it looks bigger than the picture). Butter has the ONLY green tea cake that I can't ever get enough of - chocolate and green tea mousse! As always it tasted wonderful. For those who want to order a cake from butter it MUST be pre-ordered and paid for beforehand - you can contact them through their order email email@example.com.
Some of their cakes are seasonal though! But the regulars are always available to be ordered.
For dinner I took him to indulge at Blowfish on Bay! He wanted to eat sushi for his birthday (even though I wanted to take him to a steakhouse. We ordered the regulars as Blowfish is always filling.
