648. Victoria Day Weekend

Fendi 2jours
By pure coincidence, I now realize that pretty much all my meals out this week were at Japanese restaurants. I only just noticed this when editing the photos for this post. All sushi and matcha related lol. I mentioned my new matcha obsession in my previous post. Maybe subconsciously that also made me want Japanese food. Hmm...

Victoria Day was yesterday. We went to watch the fireworks at Ashbridge's Bay/Woodbine Beach. There were so many people. I think it's the first time I ever went somewhere to watch fireworks like that...or at least the first time in many years. I have seen fireworks before but from a far distance. I've never gone to the "official" spot to see them. Large crowds scare me but it was a fun experience! Getting home was a bit of a hassle but it was worth it.

More and more people came as it got darker..

La Paella Toronto
Last week we went for dinner at La Paella, a fairly new Spanish restaurant located in Leslieville. It was really good and (according to my boyfriend) the most authentic Spanish restaurant that we tried so far in Toronto. Due to timing we weren't able to try the paella unfortunately. Would definitely like to next time! It was also my first time going to Leslieville I think. It was a fun night.

After dinner we went for gelato then drinks at the Broadview Hotel:

The Broadview Hotel is a fairly new hotel here in Toronto. We were walking by and decided to go in and check it out. We ended up going to the rooftop patio and sharing a pitcher of sangria. We got a good seat with this nice view.

matcha powder
I've been on a recent matcha obsession. Last week I tried making matcha white chocolate shortbread cookies for the first time and they are so good!! I was really happy with the results. Everyone I gave them to had said they're probably the best cookies I've ever made so far hahah. I didn't mix the dough properly though so it was kind of crumbly and hard to shape..so that's why they look like they all fell apart. But the taste was good. I'll be attempting them again tonight so hopefully they come out looking better lol.

pearl diver fish and chips
A nice dinner at Pearl Diver. This was the first time in my life ordering fish and chips. I never order this in the past because I don't like really fried things (besides fries lol) but this was really good. I just ate the insides/the haddock.
