636. BlueBlood Steakhouse

Blueblood Steakhouse Toronto
For one of our dinners last week, my boyfriend and I went to BlueBlood Steakhouse at Casa Loma! I've been wanting to go for a long time because I love Casa Loma and the interiors of the restaurant are so beautiful. It was a great night and I always have good memories when we go there together :)

Blueblood cocktail
I got the "Down by the Bay" cocktail. It was nice and fruity.

Blueblood Beef Tartare
As an appetizer we got the Prime Steak Tartare, which was served in a bone marrow canoe. It was sooo good!!

For the mains we got a Canadian Prime Rib Eye (which our server really insisted we try)..it was good but I thought there was too much fat. We also got a Japanese Wagyu A5 Striploin which I was curious to try as the only other time I had it was in Macau before (which was my favourite steak). As accompaniments we got the creamed corn and mashed potatoes. We were way too full by the end.

Baked Alaska dessert
For dessert we had the Baked Alaska. I love this dessert and always get it (when it's available) at steakhouses. I love watching them make it. My favourite is still the one at Harbour Sixty though..since the outside is more like toasted marshmallow and inside it's hazelnut ice cream. Two of my favourite things!

634. Shanghai | Xintiandi & Tianzifang

Tianzifang Shanghai
Tianzifang in Shanghai is a cozy area of little alleyways lined with trendy independent boutiques, restaurants, bars, and artsy shops. The area retains an "original" feel of Shanghai, as the buildings have not been reconstructed so that the original 1930s architecture and style have been preserved.

After that we went to Xintiandi, another popular area of the city. The architecture of the buildings here were still traditional yet more modern than Tianzifang. There were lots of high-end restaurants and stores and apparently one of the best areas for nightlife.
