Niagara Falls. One of the Best Free Things to Do in the World


Niagara Falls is one of the natural wonders of the world. Anyone who has seen it will be awed by the force, power and beauty of Mother Nature. 

It's not the world's largest waterfall - that honour belongs to Victoria Falls in Zambia (Africa). But, Niagara Falls is more accessible for most people. It can easily be reached once you are in Ontario, Canada or New York, USA.

You can self drive or take a public bus to Niagara Falls. I am going by bus from Toronto this time 😄

Gamjatang Pork Bone Soup. Ka Chi. Dundas St. West. Toronto


I wasn't going to have another gamjatang or Korean style pork bone soup today. I had gamjatang at ten different places in Toronto already and it is time I try other food here 😂 Furthermore, my current stay in Toronto is coming to an end soon 😂

Saturday Farmer's Market at St. Lawrence Market, Toronto


For many Torontonians, their Saturday morning ritual includes a visit to the Farmer's Market at St. Lawrence Market. Farmer's Markets like this is one of the reasons why I think Toronto is a home cook's paradise.

Butter Tart. Andrea's Bakery. Gerrard St. East Chinatown ⭐⭐⭐⭐✱


The homely butter tart is one of Canada's signature desserts. If you are visiting Canada, you must not leave without tasting a butter tart 😄 Any credible list of Toronto's best butter tarts will inevitably include Andrea's Bakery in East Chinatown.

Toronto Streetcars


I am a bit crazy about streetcars.

I love their vintage look - I think they are beautiful. I like the muffled rumble they make - the sound of steel wheels rolling on steel tracks as they approach. The "ice cream" bell. I appreciate it that they are smoke free - fresh air is a blessing not to be taken for granted. It is great that they are nearly everywhere you need them in the city. They are also comfortable and convenient.

In Toronto, the subway, buses and streetcars are fully integrated. You can freely transfer between subway, bus or streetcar, paying a flat rate of CDN3 only once to complete your trip.

Kevin's Taiyaki at P.A.T. Supermarket in Koreatown Toronto


I know I shouldn't but I have a little indulgence whenever I am in Toronto's Koreatown at Bloor St. West. After my always heavy lunch in Koreatown's little ajumma (auntie run) restaurants, I couldn't resist this fish-shape waffle at Kevin's Taiyaki.

Gamjatang Pork Bone Soup. Kimchi House. Bloor Koreatown Toronto


When I am travelling, I rarely go back to the same restaurant as time is short and I would like to try as many different restaurants as possible before returning home. But, this was my second time in Kimchi House in Koreatown within a week. There are many things I like about this little ajumma (auntie run) eatery - one of over a dozen such homely comfort food shops in Toronto's little Korea.

King's Noodle at Old Chinatown Toronto


With my lunch at King's Noodle today, I have completed my round up of all the roast ducks in old school Cantonese roast shops in downtown Toronto 😄 King's Noodle is a decades old stalwart of Old Chinatown - it just re-opened today after a month long renovation.

Sing Sing B.B.Q. Best Cheap and Good Cantonese Roast in Toronto?


I have passed by Sing Sing B.B.Q. House a few times while searching for good things to eat in Toronto. But, Sing Sing B.B.Q. is a take out only shop, so it was only today that I finally bought a roast duck from them to eat at home.
