Toronto Visit - Foodie Friends & Family
One thing I really love about the city is the diversity. On a fifteen minute streetcar ride to the the Yonge subway line from my daughter's house near Dundas & Brock in the West End, I passed through Brazil, Portugal, Spain, Argentina and parts of Asia - mostly China, Vietnam and a bit of Japan.
I love convenience stores in Toronto...fresh produce, ethnic baked goods and fresh flowers stand out among the usual chips, soft drinks etc. And they are everywhere. The photo above is a block from my daughter and there's another one just like it on the opposite corner of the intersection! And, might I add....that's the norm!
She Takes the Cake is filled with wonderful, fanciful cakes, tarts and cupcakes, and I will be writing more about them once I'm back in Halifax. But for now....here's a look at what we took home....
Dolce de Leche Cake (fits in the palm of your hand)
their famous Lemon Square
Now I'll sign of so I can munch on a custard tart before I shower and head out on more food adventures.
