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.
