CNE 2016


The Canadian National Exhibition is a yearly tradition where we watch dazzling stunts on ice, super (un)obedient dogs, and of course, eat all the fried things.

Lobster Roll from Jake’s Lobster 18 We began with a lobster roll from Jake’s Lobster which was pretty acceptable for CNE standards. The buttered toasted bun was filled with lightly dressed lobster, and was thankfully low on mayo and filler. Served atop of large bed of fries, the lobster roll also came with a small coleslaw so you can assure yourself that healthy choices are being made.


Turonno Original Porchetta Sandwich from Porkie’s Porchetta 10
Next was the Turonno Original porchetta sandwich from Porkie’s Porchetta. The porchetta, arugula, provolone, caramelized onion, and crackling made a deliciously messy sandwich. However, the crusty roll was a bit too bready and we abandoned it to make a porchetta poutine with the fries above.

Smoked Brisket Tater Tot Nachos 10 The House of Brisket’s novelty offering this year was raclette, a mound of melty cheese scraped off the wheel onto potatoes and onions. However, I was looking forward to trying their brisket samosas which were not available on the Saturday we visited, so we settled for their smoked brisket tater tot nachos. The tater tot, smoked brisket, guacamole, tomato, and lettuce concoction was surprisingly tasty and would easy fit in on a Toronto Brunch menu if it were relabeled as hash.


Colossal Onion
We rounded out the savoury fried trifecta with a colossal onion because we could. It’s a fried onion, just do it.

Grinning Face’s Vegan Strawberry Gelato from Wild Child’s Kitchen 5.75 The coffee drinkers satisfied their needs with bottles of Station cold brew, available at Wild Child’s Kitchen. I opted for the strawberry gelato by Grinning Face, a coconut milk based gelato that was refreshing and did not over power the strawberries.


Cookies 4 for 20, Creamed Honey 3 for 20, and Wine Jelly 5
While snacking on some popcorn and roasted crickets, we picked up some tasty creamed honey from Flavours of Nova Scotia. The lemony creamed honey would go great on waffles or in tea. Tracey’s Wine Jellies is a staple we pick up every year, and struggle to not eat it all in one go. Sprucewood Handmade Cookie company was handing out samples of all their sweet and savoury shortbreads, all of which were quite delicious. We decided to go with their cheddary rosemary cookies.

Roast Beef Bowl by Eat my Bowls After taking in the sights and sounds of the Ex, we continued with a roast beef bowl from Eat my Bowls. Essentially a over-sized Yorkshire pudding filled with roast beef slices, gravy and horseradish sauce, this was a fairly simple and satisfying novelty item. Their other offerings included a taco salad in a cardboardy edible bowl, as well as mac and cheese in a bacon bowl.


Jerk Chicken and Full Rack Pork Ribs from Brick Yard BBQ 14/25
In search of less gimmicky food, we headed over to ribfest. With four vendors to choose from, we selected ribfest regular – Brick Yard BBQ from Toronto, as they were offering Jerk Chicken with rice and peas. We really enjoyed their ribs, as their BBQ sauce was not too sweet, and just a little spicy. The jerk chicken was juicy but could not challenge our current favourite (Chris Jerk) for the top spot.


Funnel Cake 11.25
Last but never the least, is strawberry funnel cake with ice cream. Because it’s the best, it wouldn’t be a successful day at the CNE without one, and it’ll be another 364 days until I have another.

P.S.: A PRO TIP is to share the Grabb app (use my code GR5SP for $5) with your friends to skip lines in the food building, use credit instead of cash, and make use of some discounts! Do note that certain places charge a small (about a dollar) service fee.

ME.N.U Food Truck

With the instant visual gratification of Instagram and Yelp, why blog anymore? For us it’s a method of combating poor memory, for moments worth greater depth than just a couple of images. A recent event worth remembering was organized by Feed My Phone and Markham Food.


Chiang Mai Trail Mix by The Basil Box
Chiang Mai Trail Mix was provided by The Basil Box, a Southeast Asian inspired “build your own meal” stand that opened in the Square One food court this summer. The vegan, gluten-free, dairy-free trail mix consisting of lemon pumpkin seeds, lime peanuts, coconut, ginger, and papaya was a nice balance of sweet and savoury.

Me.N.U – an Asian fusion street food truck launched in 2014 – provided the mains. Fried items were customized with fun toppings and sauces, a perfect combination for serving via food truck and grabbing attention on social media.

ME.N.U's Pork Rib, Mozzarella and Edamame Rice Ball
ME.N.U’s Pork Rib, Mozzarella and Edamame Rice Ball
First were deep fried rice balls filled with braised pork ribs, smoked mozzarella and edamame served on a bed of shredded cabbage. The DIY bar allowed for as many or few sauces (Korean barbecue, hoisin sriracha, sweet chili, garlic mayo & sriracha mayo) and toppings (pineapple relish, fried onions, nori, green onions & black sesame) to be added as desired.

Kimichi Pulled Pork Poutine
ME.N.U’s Kimchi Pulled Pork Poutine
Next was a kimchi pulled pork poutine with cilantro mayo and green onions. The poutine was well balanced and we appreciated the extra crispy fries that withstood the generous toppings.

Nutella Green Tea Crème Brûlée
Donburi mascot Donnie ready to devour ME.N.U’s Nutella Green Tea Crème Brûlée
Lastly, a Nutella green tea crème brûlée was served for dessert. The sugar crust cracked satisfyingly, and the green tea custard was thick enough to eat with a fork. While green tea and Nutella are both flavours we enjoy, the pool of Nutella underneath the custard layer seemed as though both were disparate elements rather than a whole, and the sum result was not particularly greater than its parts.


Love Gelato’s flavours at their Main Street Markham shop
Unfortunately at this point we had to leave the festivities, missing out on Love Gelato’s offerings as well as a very generous raffle from vendors in Markham!

Hakata Shoryuken Ramen

When Q and I heard of a new ramen joint opening up in North York, whose name referenced a favourite childhood video game, we knew we had to give them a try. Hakata Shoryuken Ramen is located near Yonge and Sheppard, close to the newly-opened Kinton location, which we passed by on our way there. Upon arriving, we noticed their abundant Halloween decorations, which Q very much appreciated, as well as their dedication to their Street Fighter theme, with large ink wash portraits of Akuma, Ryu, and Chun-Li decorating the walls.

Hakata Shoryuken Ramen
Hakata Tonkotsu Ramen & an Egg 11.30
We both decided to try the Hakata tonkotsu ramen, with an added egg. True to its name, the ramen arrived in a rich tonkotsu broth, with thin chewy noodles that retained their texture even at the bottom of the bowl, and two slices of absolutely melt-in-your-mouth chashu.  The aforementioned egg was well-seasoned, with the marinade suffused through the whites, and the yolk still deliciously gooey – definitely worth the addition!

Hakata Shoryuken Ramen
Thin, chewy noodles
Overall, we thoroughly enjoyed the ramen and all of its accompaniments, especially the chashu, which we agreed was our favourite in the city both in terms of flavour and texture. With its name and decor appealing to video game lovers, delicious ramen, and lack of down-the-block line-ups (unlike the neighbouring Kinton), we will definitely be returning to Hakata Shoryuken Ramen.

Hakata Shoryuken Ramen
Chashu Lover Ramen 13
Note by Q: I returned to Shoryuken for the Chashu Lover ramen, which highlights their amazing chashu and is highly recommended. They also were offering a special of a seafood donburi combo that was very tempting. Also of note was their optimistic tipping guide at the bottom of their receipts, completing the experience with one last reference to Dragon Ball Z.

TO Food Fest 2014

TO Food Fest (TOFF) in its inaugural year was full of hope and potential.  Its second event last year had a rougher and more confusing start for both media pass holders as well as the vendors, most of whom seemed to have no idea that the media would be arriving earlier to have a chance to chat with them before the lines began. The highlight of TOFF 2013 for us was Kanga’s meat pies, who have since successfully opened a physical store just west of Queen and University.

1
Island Oysters’ very nautical themed booth
Moving on to this year, it was good to see some familiar faces, such as Gala’s Hot Sauce, Buster’s Sea Cove food truck, Marathon Donuts & Coffee and José Arato’s Pimentón, but we were excited to see all the new offerings. Most of the stands were catering and pop ups only, with some farmer’s markets, TUM, Annex and Junction Flea regulars. One of the stands new to us this year was Island Oysters.

2
Island Oysters’ Oyster Set 6
Island Oysters’ wonderfully nautical themed booth caught our eyes, and we were particularly interested in the clams, which are not as commonly offered as oysters. Regularly found at Sorauren, Dufferin Grove, and Trinity Bellwoods farmers’ markets, Island Oysters were offering an oyster set with a representative from each coast in addition to the sweet, chewy PEI little neck clams. P’s favourite was the Kusshi, a popular West Coast oyster with a creamy, sweet flavour.

3
Sisig Fries from Kanto by Tita Flips 5
Having had consistently good food from Tita Flips at TUM, TOFF, and their Kanto shop at Scadding Court’s Market 707, we were eager for more. We decided to pass on their pancit palabok this time, and opted for the calamansi iced tea and sisig fries instead. The iced tea was sweet and refreshing, and we particularly liked that they avoided adding ice into the dispenser to prevent dilution, with the ice being added to the cups as the drink was ordered. The sisig fries came with super crispy fries topped with a balanced amount of aioli (as opposed to the accidental mayo-explosion last time), sriracha, and lechon. The fries were delicious as always, but we found this year’s serving to contain a lot less offal than in past years.

4
Grilled Mini Eggs: Corn and cheese grilled quail eggs 3.5 each
Kwek Kwek are one of my favourite foods ever, but since fried quail eggs are harder to find in Toronto, the next best thing are grilled quail eggs. We opted to top ours with corn and cheese, in addition to the okonomiyaki sauce and kewpie mayo the eggs come with. We both preferred the cheese topping most, and P was happy to add to her double digit tally of grilled quail eggs consumed this summer (over various food festivals).

5
Aracataca’s Porky Arepa 5
Aracataca offered arepas, a Colombian street food based on a crumbly flatbread made of white maize. Although the Bangkok (beef) and Le Hipster (Vegetarian) options sounded interesting, we chose to go with the Porky (bacon, roasted tomato and brussel sprouts) arepa. The shape of the brussel sprouts, tomatoes, and bacon made the arepa tricky to eat without a fork (one of my brussel sprouts ran away). When I was able to get a bite of each component together I enjoyed the combination of flavours, but wished the bacon could have been slightly saltier to balance out the sweetness of the tomatoes.

6
Vegiterra’s Sweet Potato Gnocchi 5
Vegiterra brought their worldly vegan flavours, offering empanadas, gnocchi, burgers, salad and drinks. We tried their crispy sweet potato gnocchi, which came with a refreshing cilantro sauce, and a creamy garlic aioli. The flavourful sauces paired very well with the gnocchi, which managed to retain their crispiness despite being prefried, but we found them to be a little tough in the centre.

7
Little Tomato Catering’s Homemade Peaches & Cream Soda 3
Little Tomato Catering brought some delicious looking porchetta and mushroom sandwiches, along with a caramel bread pudding. However, we were not in the mood for sandwiches that day, and instead decided to try all three of their old fashioned sodas (FOR SCIENCE). Made with homemade syrups and sparkling water, the flavours available were ginger, peaches & cream, and pina colada. The ginger had a nice spiciness and proved most popular with the predominately Asian crowd. The pina colada was the most refreshing, with a strong pineapple flavour, and thankfully did not taste anything like malibu/sun screen. P’s favourite was the peaches and cream, which had a smooth sweet flavour, and definitely captured the essence of fresh Ontario peaches. All the soda syrups were sweetened with real vanilla beans, leaving delicious black flecks in the soda. If Little Tomato Catering were selling their syrups, I would definitely have brought all of them home.

9
Gushi’s Karaage Skewer 5
Gushi is another vendor from Market 707 at Scadding Court. At TOFF they offered their fried chicken skewers with spicy mayo, sweet chili, or nanban (Japanese vinegar) sauces. As always, Gushi delivered a delicious crunchy, juicy, chicken skewer that could not be improved upon.

10
Pimentón’s Paella 7 and Grub’s HK Milk Tea Freezie 2
Although we were pretty full at this point, we couldn’t leave without trying Pimentón’s chicken paella. A generous portion of rice cooked with peppers, onions, green beans, tomatoes and saffron in lobster stock was topped with a chicken drumstick. The rice was very flavourful and with a good bite. The colourful paella also attracted a lot of attention, with many people asking me where I bought it from.

The other item we could not leave without was Grub’s milk tea freezie which P had raved about, having tried it at the night market. Grub also had other interesting food concepts with attention-catching names, such as their bow chicka wow wow slider and “don’t be a hater” tater tots. Our freezie had a leak in the bottom which could’ve caused quite a mess, but the Grub staff kindly let us exchange for a defect-free one without any fuss.

TO Food Fest 2014
Marathon Donuts & Coffee’s award winning HK Milk Tea
Although that ends the food we tried this year, there were plenty of other booths we didn’t have stomach space for that were worth noting. In the lovely air-conditioned indoors, Soul2Go had a selection of empanadas and drinks. Mon K brought some of their very pretty pastries. The New York Times and TEDx were the odd booths out, offering knowledge rather than edibles. Caterers Toben Food by Design had sandwiches. Shaved ice, a night market staple, was also present, available in either mango or honeydew flavour. Moo Milk Bar were creating tempting ice cream sandwiches. Lamesa’s Summerlicious menu was excellent, but nothing from the TOFF menu really jumped out at us – apart from their awesome soundtrack! Me.N.U. food truck specialized in fried rice balls, using Korean short grain rice (as opposed to arborio) for stickiness. Baos & Buns by Wonderpho, unsurprisingly offered baos, buns, and Vietnamese iced coffee. Another night market staple was Ice Volcano, who offer frozen mini marshmallows as a specialty from time to time (but sadly not today), in addition to freshly churned ice creams on the spot with the use of liquid nitrogen.

TO Food Fest 2014
Mamak Satay’s Malaysian Offerings
Not to be outdone, outdoors in the sweltering heat was Mamak Satay, from which P tried their Filipino-style thick cut bacon on a stick at Night It Up this year. Unfortunately (for P), only pork, chicken and beef skewers were among their offerings at TOFF. Also outside were Liko’s Hawaiian BBQ, The Saucy Pierogi, Blue Donkey (Greek food truck), Dutch Frites, Hong Kong style stinky tofu & BBQ squid, Lemonade, Hakka bao sandwich bar, Babi & Co (Indonesian), Hot Bunzz, Stuffed Wings (yes, stuffed chicken wings), Asian Sliders, Meat ventures, Okonomiyaki (onfire.com), Bricks & Mortar, and Koribbean Dumplings. On the sweet front were Sweet Pop, who offered gourmet dessert popcorn, and Penny Lou Lou with their sweet takes on bubble waffles, a popular HK street snack.

NETO HQ: Strawberry Pavlova

Sometimes at NETO HQ we do more than just eat goodies from restaurants. Sometimes we even make things completely from scratch! On this occasion, Q had churned up some stracciatella ice cream resulting in six leftover egg whites. Unsure of how to use up the whites, we turned to our google-fu, sourcing the perfect recipe. This leads to what is affectionately known to us as, “MIDNIGHT DIABEETUS YEEEAAHH!”

Strawberry Pavlova
Witness our pavlova in all it’s glory!
What do you do if you’ve got a bunch of leftover egg whites sitting in your fridge that you really want to use up before they go to waste? If you’re us, you make pavlova! ….at midnight. For the first time ever. I regret nothing (may be lying).

The Making Of:
Strawberry Pavlova
P: Is this stiff enough yet?!
The first step is to beat egg whites until thick and glossy. Use an electric beater for this step unless you are looking for an incredibly intense one-arm workout to go along with your dessert. Add sugar, corn starch, and vinegar along the way.

Strawberry Pavlova
Try not to worry about the prevailing vinegar smell at this point
Scoop whipped egg whites onto a baking sheet. We lined ours with parchment paper since there were no functional non-stick baking sheets left. Feel free to make as many swirly or spiky patterns as your heart desires.

Strawberry Pavlova
Ta-da! Fresh out of the oven.
After an hour in the oven, our meringue took on a light orange hue. Despite our incessant worrying that it might burn or deflate, it came out of the oven just fine.

Strawberry Pavlova
Homemade strawberry sauce
We made a simple strawberry sauce to top our pavlova with. I couldn’t resist adding some fresh leaves off Q’s mint plant into the mixture.

Strawberry Pavlova
Completed pavlova with mint garnish
Traditional pavlova is topped with whipped cream as well as fruit, but we skipped the cream and stuck to a simple combination of stewed and fresh fruit, with some mint for a bit of freshness. Although our midnight baking adventure could definitely have used better timing (aka not giving us diabeetus right before bed), the pavlova was a definite success, with a crisp outer shell and soft marshmallowy centre.

Aragvi

While Toronto has a truly multicultural selection of cuisines to choose from, certain cuisines definitely tend to dominate. As a result, it’s extra exciting discovering delicious non-trendy food. We were eager to try Aragvi, which specializes in food from Georgia (the country, not the state – those expecting peach pie will be sorely disappointed). Not knowing anything about Georgian cuisine, we were pleasantly surprised at how familiar and tasty the dishes were.

Aragvi
Adjarian Khachapuri 10
What drew us to Aragvi in the first place were their variations of bread – the khachapuri.  The boat-shaped Adjarian khachapuri was our unanimous favourite, filled with molten cheese, butter, and topped with a runny egg.  We loved this chewy bread so much we got a second order, and even recreated it at home!

Aragvi
Kubdari Khachapuri 10
The other khachapuri we tried was the Kubdari, which had a more pastry-like consistency. It was stuffed with chicken and onions, similar to a flat meat pie. While tasty, it was not quite as unique as the Adjarian.

Aragvi
Satsivi 12
From the cold appetizer section, we ordered the satsivi, a creamy chicken dish that was surprisingly dairy-free. The deliciously rich sauce was made from pureed walnuts, and went very well with the bread. As a proponent of “easy meat”, I really appreciated that the large tender pieces of chicken had no tendons or skin included, and was not dry or stringy.

Aragvi
Kyufta-Bozbash 7.5
As I love soup, I was excited to try the Azerbaijan lamb meatball soup with chickpeas, rice, and potatoes. We found this milder soup bland compared to the other more strongly flavoured dishes and was pretty forgettable overall.

Aragvi
Kharcho 7
The second soup we tried was the Kharcho, a tomato-based veal soup with garlic and rice. This soup was not bland at all, being almost overwhelmingly sour from the tomatoes.

Aragvi
Khinkali 7.5
Next up, we tried the Khinkali, the Georgian dumpling. We were a little skeptical upon seeing them, as they looked like heavier versions of the delicate soup dumplings we are used to. Fortunately, appearances were deceiving, and the light skin wrapped around well-seasoned meat made these enjoyable bites. Apparently, the tops of these dumplings are not meant to be eaten, but we devoured them too quickly to realize.

Aragvi
Chakhokbili 12
Moving onto the entrees, we ordered the Chakhokhbili, a tomato-based chicken stew. Unlike the Kharcho, our other tomato-based dish of the night, it was not sour at all, with the tomatoes only providing a pleasant tang. We enjoyed this dish so much, every last bit of the garlicky sauce was mopped up.

Aragvi
Kupati 12
Most of their grilled entree options were kabobs, but we wanted to try dishes that were more unique to Georgian cuisine, and decided on the Kupati, helped along by our love of sausages. The pork-and-lamb sausages were grilled to perfection, with a pleasantly springy texture, and well-seasoned. We thoroughly enjoyed the sausages, as well as the crispy potatoes served alongside with spiced ketchup. The side salad, composed of chopped cucumbers, tomatoes, and red onions, was a refreshing accompaniment to the heavier sausages and potatoes.

Aragvi
Tarhun 3.75
Continuing our theme of trying unfamiliar items, we hastily Googled the beverages we did not recognize. The Borjomi and Nabeghlavi turned out to be bottled mineral waters, so we ordered the Tarhun. As tarkhuna is tarragon in Georgian, Tarhun is unsurprisingly tarragon flavoured. The fizzy drink was very very green, but had a mild, pleasant flavour.

Aragvi’s tiny purple themed dining room is quite fancy, and feels like a compressed banquet hall – contrasting from its harsh suburban strip mall exterior. The pleasant staff and interesting foods are worth trying, but remember to make a reservation!

La Bamboche

Last year for Macaron Day TO, I trekked across half the city in an effort to sample macarons from different bakeries. Because I had to wait until school ended for the day to go, most places had run out of macarons (both free and otherwise) entirely. I did manage to snag some fantastic macarons from La Bamboche, and their friendly customer service had me determined to return. So, when Macaron Day rolled around again this year, I set off once more and bought a selection from La Bamboche back to NETO HQ to sample. Unfortunately some of my favourite flavours, such as hazelnut praline, and pistachio, were sold out by the time I got to the shop. Regardless, here are our Macaron Day 2014 findings!

La Bamboche Nori Wasabi Macaron
Their sampler this year was a seaweed macaron with a wasabi white chocolate ganache. While it was an interesting and well-balanced flavour combination, I think I would still prefer having wasabi with sushi only. For other brave souls interested in trying out this flavour combination, Kekou Gelato in Baldwin Village occasionally serves up a wasabi-dark chocolate gelato.

La Bamboche Caramel Sea Salt Macaron
As seen here, La Bamboche is quite generous with their butter-cream filling. Bits of toffee added texture to the otherwise smooth filling, while the mild sea salt balanced out the sweetness of the caramel. I really enjoyed this macaron, especially as their caramel was not overly sweet.

La Bamboche Espresso Macaron
This was our favourite of the bunch, and perfect for coffee lovers with its strong, smooth, espresso flavour. Q appreciated it even more, as she usually passes out very quickly after having any caffeine, but miraculously stayed awake this time!

La Bamboche
Yuzu Macaron
After I took my first bite, Q laughed at the face I made until she tried a bite herself – the yuzu flavour was unexpectedly prominent. This macaron is definitely more suited for those who prefer extremely strong, sour citrus flavours.

La Bamboche Raspberry Rose Macaron
The rose flavoured shell on its own was only mildly fragrant, but when combined with the generous amount of chocolate raspberry rose filling, Q and I agreed that it felt like a perfume bomb had exploded in our mouths, leaving a taste reminiscent of chocolaty soap.

La Bamboche Hazelnut Yuzu Macaron & Chocolate Macaron
We both enjoyed the chocolate macaron, the filling rich without being overly sweet, but Q felt that it couldn’t quite compare to SOMA’s chocolate creations. Although I enjoyed the hazelnut yuzu macaron, (Q did not enjoy the addition of yuzu marmalade inside), I would definitely pick their hazelnut praline from last year’s collection over this.

Overall, La Bamboche has some excellent macarons and interesting flavours. We’ll be back to try out more of their creations!
