Review: Ultramen Japanese Noodle Bar

I was working on a special project late for work and my manager said that I could order dinner and expense it so I decided to try this new ramen place opened nearby my house at Liberty Village on King Street East. I pass by it every morning during my ride to work and always wondered about the restaurant so I decided to google it up.

The7TO Hudson Bay Pop Up

A friend of mine told me about this pop up visually-stunning place where you could take pictures in different wall backgrounds for free! 

It is called The7TO because it is located on the 7th floor of The Hudson Bay on Queen Street East with 8 rooms that transform into whimsical and super insta-worthy art installations! 

Once the elevators open when you reach up the 7th floor, you are greeted with a total sensory overload into a magical world!

Review: Amausaan Uji Matcha

When I was bored at work one day, I was on blogto looking at new cafes and restaurants to try (literally my favourite hobby to do at work, lol) and came across this all matcha Japanese sweet dessert cafe. 

Amausaan Uji Matcha is a Japanese dessert chain specialized in sweets snacks and drinks made from premium matcha green tea. 

It is located in the heart of Chinatown in Toronto and is also the first location in North America and the largest cafe of the brand worldwide.

They had this seasonal sweet potato drinks and desserts and I decided to try the sweet potato latte (cold) and it was pretty good.

Review: Fuwa Fuwa Japanese Pancakes

Finally got to try the famous Fuwa Fuwa Japanese Pancakes that I have been seeing all over blogs and instagram. I was talking to a coworker at work about it and he told me that "fuwa fuwa" is actually an imitation sound of something being fluffy and soft. Like the movement of it bouncing when you shake the plate and the pancakes wiggle and create the sound like fuwa~ fuwa~ How cute! ( •⌄• ू )✧

They have this share a little bit of happiness gimmick if you post anything fuwa fuwa related with their hashtag #fuwafuwapancakes on social medial and you can get a scoop of ice cream for free when you show it to the cashier.

Their drinks and pancakes menu. They sell both hot and cold drinks and I actually forgot to take a picture of their hot drinks menu, lol. The cold drinks actually look very appealing but it was really cold out so I decided to order a hot drink instead. Maybe I will go back in the summer time to try their cold drinks. 

I ordered a matcha latte to keep me warm from the cold! 

And for the pancakes, I got the signature pancake with strawberries, blue berries and bananas. 

And my friend got the creme brulee with ice cream, raspberries, blue berries and bananas and we shared it where we each had one of each type of pancakes. 

My overall thoughts: To be honest, I was quite disappointed with my pancakes as they did not even wiggle or move at all when I shook the plate. It also was not as soft and fluffy as I expected it to be. It also tasted rather plain and I thought the creme brulee was much better. I talked to another coworker at work who had the pancakes at the same place but on a different time from when I went and she said her pancakes were much softer. So I think maybe the batter that day wasn't in the greatest quality on the day when I went so it did not come out looking as fluffy and soft. Quite a disappointment. I would like to go back again to try another time in the summer as it is quite expensive for dessert. Definitely wouldn't want to eat there often. On the plus side, they do offer a customer rewards where if you sign up with your phone number, they would send you discounts for getting half price drinks and other perks! I haven't been back since the first time to get anything though.
