Welcome to Foodie February, this month will be all about food. Let’s be honest here, food is pretty much on my mind 24/7. However, now that I have to eat healthy 24/7 because of stomach, I am going to use this months theme as a motivation to cook more.
Last week was fun because it was my birthday, therefore, I went out a lot to eat. Today I will be sharing where I went and what I had to eat.
My birthday week began with a surprise birthday breakfast with my coworkers at Panagio’s All Day Grill. The atmosphere and food was good and the location is at South Etobicoke near the lake. The prices were very reasonable so if you’re on a budget, this is the place to visit.
I am pescitarian but because of my health for a little bit I have to add protein to my meals.
On February 7th, I had a day off from work and I decided to go to TIFF Bell Lightbox to watch a movie. After the movie I went to the TIFF Lounge to read my book and have a delicious cup of chamomile tea.
Later on that week on Friday, I went to a Korean restaurant with my friend in Koreatown. I was in the mood for tteokbokki which is a rice cake dish. It is my favorite Korean meal and it is also a popular Korean street food.
The tteokbokki came with noodles and some veggies. Typically tteokbokki is a spicy dish but since I cannot have spicy food I requested the non spicy version. My friend also shared with me her black bean noodles, which were delicious and I just try next time I go to Koreatown.
The next thing we had was a potato pancake.
I like to think of it as a giant hash brown, it was delicious but a bit oily. I’m not a fan of oily meals.
Our meals came with side dishes too, this is a typical thing you get in Korean restaurants.
We had tofu, pickled radish, kimchi which is spicy cabbage, cucumbers, and I think we got spicy bean sprouts. I don’t know what the sauce was and I didn’t try it because it looked spicy.
On Saturday I went out with my friends to a ping pong bar and I had a veggie burger with fries. Unfortunately I forgot to take pictures but it looked like a typical burger. I always get a vegetarian burger and I’ve tried a few that don’t taste very good, but this one was delicious.
I typically do not eat out often anymore, but it was nice to go to new places and have some yummy meals.
Thank you for reading and see you soon!
