Toronto Trip Advise | Serene Life
This was my second trip to Toronto.
On my first trip which was in October 2015, I only went to malls, city halls, Art gallery of Ontario, and Toronto Island. The only thing I liked was Toronto Island. So I posted about Toronto Island only. (Click To See) My problem with the first trip was mainly that I did not search or look up for any attractions. I literally had no idea what to see. Well, It is more correct to say that I went there to see my friends and eat some Korean foods. lol
Actually, I am not the one who reads a guidebook before I head to the place. I usually decide to go on a trip inspired by some travel bloggers' posts, amazing photos on social media, or my friends' experiences. Luckily, now I have a good boyfriend who is passionate to travel. Since I started to traveling with him, I'd always see more than I could ever see if I traveled alone. That is also why I could write about my travel in a more organized and informative way. I'm always grateful that he's in my life. ☺️
|(*Food tips would be proper? haha)|
1. University of Toronto
Frankly, I never thought the university would be this beautiful!
I didn't have a high expectation on the university but this place was absolutely an attraction in Toronto. Especially if you are crazy about architecture, antique furniture, and line. When I went there, there were wedding ceremonies going on and I also saw a couple taking photographs for their wedding. I mean, I am not the only one who thinks the place as beautiful. 😌
2. Kensington Market.
You can find anything here! Anything from everywhere!
* Kensington Market is very close to the University of Toronto so, you can walk down from the university.*
- Mare Pizzeria
First, I had a slice of Pizza at Mare Pizzeria where one of my friends used to work.
The pizza was good and cheap! 🤑 I guess it would be good for a quick lunch or a hangover food.
- Wafels & More
Again, my boyfriend is Belgian yet I haven't tried any good waffles, we had to visit this place where you can find 100% authentic Belgian waffles. According to him who already tried the waffle last year when the store was just open, the Liege waffle is very authentic. My opinion? Yes! it is DELICIOUS! I found that the batter was very different. For the Liege waffle, it was more like a dough, not a batter. Also, it was a bit gooey, not bready.
|personally, the waffle was delicious but the ice cream was okay...😅|
|there are seats inside and outside|
3. Other Restaurants.
-Lazy Daisy's Cafe
If you are around this district and plant based eater, this is the cafe you should go!
This is not a vegan place but you will still feel comfortable.
Because there are lots of vegetarian bakes and dishes. Otherwise, you can ask for customizing. Although they use free range eggs, I don't like to eat eggs. So, I didn't put any egg in my biscuit but I put more avocados. 🥑
|Carrot muffin with coconut cream!|
Such a cool place to enjoy a Thai food!
The most thing I liked about this place was that you can make almost every dish vegan!! Yas!!!! (I know how it feels like when you go to a cool place but there is no vegan option... and not even a vegetarian option...) hehe, so no worries! This place is safe, vegetarians! 😉
4. The Distillery District.
I love this area so much! It quite looked like Old Montreal but a bit different.
You can just walk around boutiques around here or eat.
I recommend you to try chocolate at SOMA.
I ate a lot of chocolate and ice cream here. In my very honest opinion, I liked the pistachio chocolate and Vietnamese coffee chocolate. Other things were just all right. I didn't really enjoy their ice cream. Anyway chocolate always makes us happy right? hehe
So, these are pretty much it about my Toronto Trip! I hope you all enjoyed my blog post.
Ps. This time, I stayed in my boyfriend's friend's, took an Amigo Express when I went to Toronto and took a Megabus when I came back to Montreal.
