Fatties, this Summer we’ll be working with Kultura Filipino Arts Festival so we’ve opened our eyes to the delicious world of Filipino flavours so when we read about Jollibee opening in Canada we were thrilled. We took this as inspiration to talk about some of the international flavours now available in Toronto.
Rest assured we’re making an office outing of tasting them all for you.
1. Jollibee: is a chain with over 800 locations in the Philippines. It’s first Canadian outpost is set to open this year. It’s known for its authentic foods, like Spam sandwiches and burgers topped with pineapple. More intriguing still is the a dessert called halo-halo. Halo-halo is made of shaved ice, evaporated milk, sweet beans, chopped fruit and the prettiest of purple ice cream. Om nom nom.
2. Uncle Tetsu: opened in Toronto to a crazy amount of excitement. We walked by the Japanese cheesecake shop the day it opened. The line went out the door of this first North American location and down Bay Street and apparently reached as long as a 2.5 hour wait. Uncle Tetsu (the man) reportedly chose Toronto “because it’s inspirational.” Yes, our penchant for eating all the things is definitely inspiring.
3. Bean & Baker Malt Shop: isn’t exotic because it’s from another country, but it’s bringing back retro flavours and fun that’s long gone. This shop will be a throwback for the ages, with old fashioned soda fountains, ice cream and desserts.
