lol havenโ€™t been to kinka izakaya in a hot minute.. as you all will shortly realize i donโ€™t make the post until weeeeeeks after i eat there so this was their july special set that is no longer available โ˜น๏ธ As per usual of kinka izakaya itโ€™s a good spot for drinks and small plates. It would be p tough imo to get stuffed here (unless iโ€™m just a fat ass lmao). The sashimi was fresh & everythjng was tasty & the atmosphere here is just perfect for late night drinking and catching up~ The only thing i didnโ€™t like was the black sauce on the spinach. i asked what it was and i totally forgot the name; itโ€™s sesame based sauce but it was just off putting to me. Either than that i love love love kinka izakaya ๐Ÿ’• - ๐Ÿฅ๐Ÿฅ๐Ÿฅ๐Ÿฅ|๐Ÿฅ๐Ÿฅ๐Ÿฅ๐Ÿฅ๐Ÿฅ

Located a few mins walk away from niagara falls this is a โ€˜gourmet burger bistroโ€™ that claims to be the worlds best burger. idk if itโ€™s the worldโ€™s best but their burgers were pretty good. The portions were big and definitely filling. They obviously were a little pricey for what it is but keep in mind itโ€™s a tourist area. Iโ€™ve tried many places on clifton hill and i would recommend this place over a lame fast food burger any day. Keep in mind lines could get long but the weight isnโ€™t too bad. They also provide water in these measuring cups which look super cute and goes w their rustic theme (or at least thatโ€™s what i think they were going for) - ๐Ÿ”๐Ÿ”๐Ÿ”|๐Ÿ”๐Ÿ”๐Ÿ”๐Ÿ”๐Ÿ”

This is the spot i always bring friends & family when they want to go out for brunch. Thereโ€™s just something about the eggs benedict + waffle combo that keeps me coming back! Their dessert/sweeter waffles are also small so donโ€™t shy away and expect the huge waffle plate at other brunch spots & get it to share as dessert (ik that i always craveeeee the sweet waffle goodness but can never finish the whole plate myself before getting sick from all the sugar). Keep in mind this place is cash only but there is an atm inside! - โ˜€๏ธโ˜€๏ธโ˜€๏ธโ˜€๏ธ/โ˜€๏ธโ˜€๏ธโ˜€๏ธโ˜€๏ธโ˜€๏ธ

Every since discovering this place ive gone here so many times. This is a chill spot to hangout w friends late at night. Also would be the perfect place for those ig pics ๐Ÿ˜‚ Totally off topic but i would like to give a big shout out to their washrooms!! They provide floss, q tips and hair ties in these little containers besides the mirror. Although small i appreciate that. & unlike ahem sugar marmalade lol thereโ€™s so much space & the service is amazing THANK GOD They also have a p extensive menu & so far everything iโ€™ve tried is DELICIOUS (a little shoutout to their chicken cartilage ๐Ÿคค๐Ÿคค) ๐Ÿคค๐Ÿคค๐Ÿคค๐Ÿคค/๐Ÿคค๐Ÿคค๐Ÿคค๐Ÿคค๐Ÿคค

Iโ€™m definitely starting to feel like i have some korean fried chicken addiction. Cheers is just like any other korean chicken place found on yonge and finch/sheppard area. The server seemed like he was having a bad night but that didnโ€™t bother me too too much. The chicken was not bad but nothing special. I do have to commend them on the sauce variety hahaha (iโ€™m a very big condiments person) The sides came with lkke 3-4 difference sauces and every single one was ๐Ÿ’ฃ๐Ÿ’ฃ๐Ÿ’ฃ๐Ÿ’ฃ๐Ÿ’ฃ๐Ÿ’ฃ But overall there wasnโ€™t anything outstanding and making Cheers stand out amongst all the other korean fried chicken places ๐Ÿ˜ถ ๐Ÿ—๐Ÿ—๐Ÿ—/๐Ÿ—๐Ÿ—๐Ÿ—๐Ÿ—๐Ÿ—

Meet You Leisure is located right next to ZenQ & for whatever reason i canโ€™t find them on google. This place is cute; has nice interior decoration and quite pretty. However, the food is only so-so. The toast tower was cute for pics but itโ€™s literally just soggy bread and cream. The chicken cartilage is meh & so was the taiwanese sausage. The tofu was p bomb but not enough to pull me back in tbh ๐Ÿ˜ Quite disappointed by this place. ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜/๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜

ever since this place opened up it became a habit to drive by in the middle night to get churros and ice cream & pls donโ€™t judge bc itโ€™s always a good time for dessert - ๐Ÿคค๐Ÿคค๐Ÿคค๐Ÿคค|๐Ÿคค๐Ÿคค๐Ÿคค๐Ÿคค๐Ÿคค

Tucked away on a residential street, Beast is a restaurant known for using local and sustainable meat sources. Their menu is different from other Canadian restaurants as it goes beyond the typica burgers and steaks! A big shoutout to their chicken liver pate + parker house rolls ๐Ÿคค๐Ÿคค I would def take a look at their daily specials (i get adventurous and ordered duck tongue no regrets it was p ๐Ÿ’ฃ) - Beast is a solid.. ๐Ÿ’‚โ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ’‚โ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ’‚โ€โ™€๏ธ/๐Ÿ’‚โ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ’‚โ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ’‚โ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ’‚โ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ’‚โ€โ™€๏ธ

i donโ€™t know why but when i came in i didnโ€™t expect this place to serve japanese food & i definitely did not expect that i would enjoy it so much!! I would definitely come back here ๐Ÿ˜„ Got to say though the chicken karaage to rice ratio was good!! idk if itโ€™s just me i always have so much rice compared to the chicken.. ๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ™„ - the rating for this place.. ๐Ÿฃ๐Ÿฃ๐Ÿฃ/๐Ÿฃ๐Ÿฃ๐Ÿฃ๐Ÿฃ๐Ÿฃ

10k gold ice creammmmm // am i a part of buzzfeedโ€™s worth it now?? - The gold was cool but it taste like nothing. I spent double-triple the price of a regular ice cream cone for some tasteless gold sheet, money well spent ๐Ÿ˜Ž The matcha ice cream did taste really good and wasnโ€™t sweet at all (heavy tea flavour) so in a sense i do find it worth the money just for the experience. - ๐Ÿ’ธ๐Ÿ’ธ๐Ÿ’ธ/๐Ÿ’ธ๐Ÿ’ธ๐Ÿ’ธ๐Ÿ’ธ๐Ÿ’ธ

A night out with lots of good drinks (psst get the summer rain if youโ€™re looking for a good drink) - might skip out on the main course & just get a lot of appetizers next time. The food wasnโ€™t too great for their prices. This is however a good place for pics for the gram so.. i would come back just to take pictures lol - ๐Ÿธ๐Ÿธ/๐Ÿธ๐Ÿธ๐Ÿธ๐Ÿธ๐Ÿธ
