Shiso Tree Cafe

without comments

Two of Mr. Pixelbunny’s friends were visiting from out of town and we decided to take them to Shiso Tree Cafe. It is a small, little restaurant that serves Japanese-style italian pasta. We were intrigued as to how this mesh of flavours would work out, so off we went.

 

The Atmosphere

Located in the small strip of J-Town, this place gets pretty packed. There aren’t a whole lot of tables, and it seems like the best way to come here is to make reservations. There’s a small enclosed table right next to the door that looks like it could comfortably seat a party of 6-8. A raised platform to the back right seats several more tables. To the left of the door is another raised area where more tables are placed. Right in front of the door, there’s a small stage with a drum kit there. I guess there are some live performances here as well.

While we were there, the place was busy and the wait staff was definitely bogged down. It looked like only 2 wait staff for the whole restaurant, and they definitely had their hands full. This probably explains why there was a “server wanted” sign near the front door.

 

The Food

Shiso Tree Cafe - salad
Salad – complimentary

We each ordered a different pasta, so we were given a small bowl of salad comprised of mixed chopped romaine, some spinach, slivered carrots, and a sesame ginger dressing. Nothing special here but at least it was fresh.

 

Shiso Tree Cafe - Okonomiyaki Fries
Okonomiyaki Fries – $8

This was a pretty large plate for an appetizer. The okonomiyaki fries is definitely good for sharing. Thick cut fries drizzled with mayo, katsu sauce, bonito flakes, slivered green onions and shredded seaweed. It reminds me of Vancouver’s Japadog, with all of those toppings. Very good and very tasty.

 

Shiso Tree Cafe - Unagidon Wafu
Unagi-don Wafu – $17

The unagi-don wafu is grilled eel on top of al dente spaghetti, topped with lots of shredded seaweed, shredded shiso leaves, and a creamy eel sauce. The shiso flavour is very strong with this one, so those who don’t like shiso should probably stay away. For me, I love the flavour of shiso and didn’t mind that this dish had so much of it. It does overpower everything else because I couldn’t really taste much other than the shiso. Also, a slice of garlic toast was served with this dish.

 

Shiso Tree Cafe - Sukiyaki Wafu
Sukiyaki Wafu – $15

The sukiyaki wafu had thin slices of sukiyaki beef, mixed in with al dente spaghetti, and topped off with shredded seaweed and slivered green onions. The sauce is more soup-like, given that it’s sukiyaki (japanese hot pot), but still very flavourful. Garlic toast also accompanies this.

 

Shiso Tree Cafe - Smoked Salmon a la Creme Vodka
Smoked Salmon à la crème vodka – $12

The smoked salmon à la crème vodka, is another al dente spaghetti served with smoke salmon in a creamy dill sauce. I couldn’t really taste the vodka, but the cream sauce was not overly salty. In fact, the flavour of this plate was rather mild in comparison to all the others. Garlic toast is also served with this.

 

Shiso Tree Cafe - Shiso Clam Vongole
Shiso Clam Vongole – $15

The shiso clam vongole was the last of our entrées, which fresh manila clams mixed in al dente spaghetti, topped with shredded shiso leaves. Again, the shiso is very strong in the flavouring, and does overpower the rest of the flavours of this dish. Despite this, it is still very very tasty. Garlic toast is again served with this dish.

 

Shiso Tree Cafe - Fruit Compoete Choux Creme
Fruit Compote Choux Crème – $8

We decided to go all the way and ordered 4 different desserts to share, just like with our entrées. The first was fruit compote choux crème. It is essentially a large cream puff in a bowl, served with a large scoop of vanilla ice cream  in the middle and several chocolate wafer rolls stuck in the side. The fruit compote is between the cream puff and ice-cream, with a strawberry sauce drizzled on top. This is pretty large and would be good for sharing. The puff was light and fluffy, and tasted great with a scoop of the ice-cream and fruit compote.

 

Shiso Tree Cafe - Black Sesame Creme Brulee
Black Sesame Crème Brûlée – $7

The black sesame crème brûlée was unanimous decision. It is quite small (of which I think the price should be lower to reflect this), and can be eaten in 3-4 large spoonfuls. The black sesame flavour is definitely present, and slightly sweetened in its crème brûlée form. A definitely must get when you come.

 

Shiso Tree Cafe - Banana Brûlée Crepe
Banana Brûlée Crêpe – $9

The banana brûlée crêpe is a really large dessert that’s probably meant for sharing. You get three large folded crêpes, topped with thick-cut caramelized banana slices, some candied walnuts, and a heaping scoop of vanilla ice cream. Everything on this plate was full of yum.

 

Shiso Tree Cafe - Lemon Mousse Cake
Slice of Cake – Lemon Mousse Cake – $6

Our last dessert was slice of cake, of which changes daily depending on what the bakery puts out. Shiso Tree Cafe gets their cakes from Nakamura Bakery in J-Town, so the cakes are always fresh. The one we had was the lemon mousse cake, which had a slight tartness to it, yet still fluffy and light. The strawberry sauce was drawn into two hearts which was pretty cute, and when eaten with the cake was a lovely combination.

 

The Verdict

A great place to come to eat, but make sure you make reservations ahead of time! Every pasta dish tasted amazing and I definitely want to go back and try some other ones, especially the ones on their specials menu. Unfortunately for us, when we got there, all of their specials were sold out! So the earlier you go, the better chances you have of trying a special!

Shu Uemura event at Hudson’s Bay

with one comment

Today I was browsing the newly renovated Hudson’s Bay at Yorkdale Mall, and was blown away by how beautiful everything was. Every beauty counter was completely redone, making everything look really inviting and enticing.

 

Shu Uemura event
Fun with Shu Uemura!

One of the events that was going on was with Shu Uemura. They have a set up in the middle with two tables, and several ladies to explain some of Shu’s iconic products. One of the girls sat me down in a chair and demonstrated four things to me: cleansing oil, under base mousse, eye shadow, and eyelash curler. As they go through each one, the have a hole punch to mark what they’ve discussed with you. I already have the eyelash curler but their new S curler is intriguing. The under base mousse was too light for my skin tone so it didn’t interest me that much. The cleansing oil and eye shadows are something I definitely want to try one day. The fun part was that afterwards, you get to go to their counter for a complimentary mini tube of their Gloss Unlimited! Bring the “airline ticket” they give you at the event and they tear off the side for you to collect your lip gloss. Such a cute concept!

 

Shu Uemura - Gloss Unlimited
Mini Gloss Unlimited!

There are three colours to choose from, a light pink, a red, and a fuchsia (the one pictured above). There were no samples open for me to swatch and the lady behind the counter wasn’t willing to open any for me to see. So I picked the fuchsia, which is shade  AT 60C. The website calls it modular pink.

 

Shu Uemura - applicator
Mini applicator

The applicator is a slightly slanted, flat paddle. One side is completely in line with the wand, whereas the other side is slanted for easier application.

 

Shu Uemura - swatch
Swatch

Against the yellow tones of my skin, it does show up a pretty bright pink. A really pretty colour in my opinion. Time to test it out on the lips.

 

Shu Uemura - bare lips
Bare lips

So without anything on, this is the natural colour of my lips.

 

Shu Uemura - on lips
Lips with Gloss Unlimited

As you can see, the Gloss Unlimited gives a little hint of colour, but not too bright. Since it’s a gloss, the colour won’t be as strong as a lipstick. I’m still not brave enough to do bold lip colours, but the hints of colour are good for me.

I’m not too sure how long this promotion is running for, but I think it’s safe to say that it will be running this weekend. So if you’re curious about Shu Uemura’s Gloss Unlimited, now’s your chance to try it out!

Here’s where it was held:

Yorkdale Mall
Hudson’s Bay
3401 Dufferin St.
Toronto, ON

Ryu’s Noodle Bar

with 2 comments

In celebration of another exam finished, I went to celebrate by -what else?- going out to eat. Since I was so close to Baldwin St, I decided to check out the new ramen place that opened up not too long ago.

 

The Atmosphere

Out of all the ramen places I’ve been to, this is the smallest in terms of seating capacity and space. Don’t expect to score a large table for you and your friends. You’ll have a higher chance of getting a table if it’s just the two of you, maybe even three if you’re willing to sit on a stool in the walkway. There are two counter style places to sit so singular people don’t have to take up a whole table. There’s also two window front tables that can sit two people if they are sitting tightly together. Outside, there is a patio with two large picnic tables, so this is where your groups can potentially sit. I don’t know if they’ll still be there when it gets colder, but right now, while the weather is still nice, there were lots of people sitting outside.

Mr. Pixelbunny and I arrived around 2pm for a late lunch, and the place was still packed. A small table at the front had menus to look at, as well as a clip board and wait list where you can jot down your name and the number of people in your party. Luckily, no sooner had we arrived, two tables cleared out so our wait was only a short one.

The place itself is very small with white walls and ceilings. Faux thin wood panels are used as light coverings so they’re illuminated from behind.

 

The Food

I ordered one of the combo meals ($15.50), which includes any ramen of my choice, gyoza appetizer, and free refill of pop. When the waitress took  my order, she told me that their free refill pop is actually a can of pop. I’m guessing their pop station isn’t quite ready yet.

Ryu's Noodle Bar - gyoza
Gyoza – part of  combo D 

My gyoza appetizer came with 5 gyozas with a small saucer of dipping sauce. Each gyoza was juicy and very flavourful, and very much reminded me of the kind of dumplings I make at home. The only difference is that these weren’t as stuffed as I make mine. Otherwise, they were really good with very thin dumpling skins.

 

Ryu's Noodle Bar - Shio Ramen
Shio ramen – part of Combo D

Out of all the ramen out there, my two favourites are tonkotsu and shio. Here at Ryu’s, I decided to try their shio ramen. I am thoroughly impressed by the bowl that was presented to me. First of all, there is a staggering amount of noodles in this bowl. I feel like this is more noodles than any other ramen place I’ve been to. The noodles are thin, but still retains that chewy ramen texture we all know and love.

Secondly, the broth is mind-blowing amazing. It’s incredibly rich and thick, but packed so full of flavour (and not overly salty either) that I couldn’t help but slurp up spoonfuls before even digging into the noodles. From their menu, it describes the  ramen as “triple broth soup (pork, chicken, veg)“, which implies that’s the content of the broth. I don’t think that’s the case. Under each ramen selection is a list of ingredients which I suspect is the actual ingredients used in making the broth. In my case, for shio, the ingredients listed were “scallop, squid, clam, sea salt, shrimp, dried fish, shiitake, kombu”. I’m pretty sure these are what my broth consists of, and would make more sense, given how rich in flavour the broth is.

The pork, chicken, veg is what’s actually served with your ramen. In my case, my shio ramen had some green leafy veg (of which I don’t know the english name, but I have eaten it before), some bamboo shoots, snow ear fungus, a slice of pork belly, and a slice of chicken breast. The pork belly was very melt in your mouth, however it was the chicken that blew me away. Mr. Pixelbunny and I are convinced that the chicken must have been cooked sous vide because it was so moist and juicy, there’s no way you could bake, pan fry, or boil chicken to that kind of consistency. I loved it so much I actually saved my chicken slice to be the last thing I ate.

 

Ryu's Noodle Bar - House Special XO Sauce
House Special XO Sauce – part of combo D

The neat thing is when you order your ramen, you also get to select what type of sauce you want to go with it. I chose house special XO sauce. The idea is that when you reach the halfway point of your ramen, you add the sauce for some additional flavour, and in some cases, an entirely different taste to enjoy. In my case, the house special XO sauce changed the flavour of my broth, and it was absolutely delicious. The sauce itself is strong, but when mixed in the broth, oh so yummy. So much that I couldn’t help myself and kept drinking the broth.

 

Ryu's Noodle Bar - empty bowl
Yes, the broth is that good.

I completely demolished my bowl. I couldn’t help it! It was so good!!

 

Ryu's Noodle Bar - Miso Ramen
Miso ramen – $9.75

Mr. Pixelbunny ordered miso ramen, whose broth consists of 4 types of miso: aka, shiro, saikyo, and kouji; ginger, garlic and veg mix. This broth was also very rich and very thick, and also very heavy on the miso. For his sauce, Mr. Pixelbunny picked sweet and spicy ginger paste, which had a little bit of heat to it by itself. When combined with the miso broth, all flavour was lost because the miso was so strong.

The ramen was served with a lot of vegetables, including bean sprouts and napa cabbage, as well as a slice of pork belly and a slice of chicken breast. Just like mine, the pork was super yummy and the chicken was stellar. Mr. Pixelbunny had no problem polishing off his bowl but did not drink all of the broth. It was just too thick for him.

 

The Verdict

Ryu’s Noodle Bar has made it to the top of my list of ramen places in Toronto! From the broth (which is by far my most favourite), the chewy noodles, the portion sizes, it’s all amazing. I wouldn’t hesitate to come back here for some more!

L’Oréal Warehouse Sale for Fall 2013

with one comment

It is that time of the year again – L’Oréal’s biannual warehouse sale held in Toronto. I’ve been going ever since Mr. Pixelbunny started bringing home these tickets from work, and I can’t pass up on scoring on some good bargains. You can see my previous visits here and here. Here is my haul for this time. For reference, I looked up the full price for each and put it in brackets.

 

L'Oreal Warehouse Sale - Fall 2013 - haul 1
Nail polishes, foundation, body lotion, and face cream

  • L’Oréal Color Riche mini in 305 Dating Coral x2 – $2.50 each (orig. $3.99)
  • Essie Luxe Effects in A Cut Above – $4 (orig. $9.99)
  • Essie Luxe Effects in Pure Pearlification – $4 (orig. $9.99)

  • L’Oréal Men Expert Vita Lift Anti-Wrinkle & Firming Moisturizer – $9.75 (orig. $15.79)

 

L'Oreal Warehouse Sale - Fall 2013 - haul 2
Gorgeous eyeshadow palettes!

Total worth  = $199.54
Total spent = $75.75!!! (including taxes, it came out to $85.60)

As you can see, lots of items are old (the Lancôme eye shadows are from 2011 and 2012), and some are still on the current market (Essie polishes, Lancoôme foundation). I love that you’re paying a fraction of the retail price and that alone makes it worth going.

Some notable things I saw there that might interest some of you:

  • Maybelline Baby Lips – can’t remember how much but there was lots of them!
  • Lancôme Genifique Youth Activating Concentrate – these are the older formulation (not the Advanced Genifique) but holy cow were they a steal! Instead of $95 for a 30ml bottle, it was only $30!!!! They also had the larger 75ml bottles for $50 (instead of $155!) so if you were interested in trying Genifique, this is the perfect time to get one. Or, to stock up if you’re already a user.
  • Essie polishes for $4 or buy 5 get 1 free.

Did you go to the sale? What did you pick up? Let me know in the comments below!

Dial NutriSkin Replenishing Lotion plus Bio Nutrient Complex

without comments

Dial - bottle
This has got to be the very first body lotion I actually enjoyed putting on

Ah, body lotion. The one thing I am absolutely terrible about applying on a daily basis because I’m either too forgetful or just too lazy once I get out of the shower. However, this body lotion from Dial changed all that. I don’t even know if they make this anymore but it was just too good to not write up a review about it. I actually had a bottle of this in my backup stash from I don’t know how long ago, but I finally got around to using it. And guess what? I love it.

 

The Packaging

Dial - nozzle
Snap lid and nozzle

It’s a tall plastic bottle containing 354ml of product. The top of the bottle features an easy to snap open lid, as well as a secure snap closure so that the product doesn’t dry out and it can’t leak out.

 

The Product

The lotion itself is a white creamy lotion, not as thick as a cream, but not as liquid-like as say, hair conditioner. There is a light fragrance to it that is nice and pleasing, and not too chemically. What is most amazing about this product for me is how quickly is absorbs into my skin.

Once applied, the absorption is literally instant. My skin soaks it up and my skin feels so velvety smooth. There is no sticky residue left over. It’s really quite amazing to experience. I can immediately pull on a pair of pants after application and not worry about getting stuck in the pant leg. How many body lotions can claim to do that?

 

The Verdict

I love this stuff! I tried to look it up online but it doesn’t look like it’s being made anymore. However, Dial’s website has this product instead for extra dry skin. I might have to give it a try to compare between the two.

 

Where to Buy

  • Wal-Mart
  • Shoppers Drug Mart
  • Rexall

Brassaii

with one comment

G, M and I decided to go out to celebrate our 5 year working anniversary. It’s hard to believe we’ve been working at our jobs for so long now (where has the time gone?!) so we felt the need to go all out and celebrate. Mr. Pixelbunny joined us and we all wined and dined at Brassai.

 

The Atmosphere

Located downtown near King and Spadina, Brassai is tucked away behind a pub. There’s a short walkway between two buildings in order to find Brassai at the back. Don’t let the location fool you though. It’s modern and classy, with beautiful decor.

 

Brassai - decor
Inside decor

As you can see in the picture, it has very high ceilings, almost like a loft feel to it, with industrial-like lights hanging from the ceiling. All the tables are made of beautiful wood, and the and walls and pillars are painted cement blocks.

 

The Food

Brassai - fresh bread
Complimentary fresh bread and butter

Our dinner was started off with freshly baked bread and butter. It was like a baguette in that it was chewy and soft. The butter was light and fluffy, and I had no problem with spreading liberal amounts on my bread.

 

Brassai - Steak Tartar
Steak Tartar – $18

My appetizer was the steak tartar. It was absolutely delicious. Finely chopped beef with hints of onion and parsley. The little yellow dollops are deviled egg yolks. Thin chips some thinly sliced parmigiano reggiano make for an amazing addition to the tartar. The orange blob is a spicy chili sauce, and the greens? Deep fried parsley. Who knew you could deep fry parsley? It was awesome, superbly light and slightly crispy that it practically disintegrated as soon as you put it in your mouth. Deliciousness.

 

Brassai - Burrata
Burrata – $19

Mr. Pixelbunny ordered the buratta, which was explained to us as essentially a large, open bruschetta. You have rolls of crostini, strawberries, basil, 25 yr aged balsamic (which was absolutely delicious by the way), pistachios, and a big mozzarella with something stuffed in the middle that we couldn’t quite figure out. Despite not knowing what it was, it was still really good and he wolfed this one down rather quickly.

 

Brassai - Ceviche
Ceviche – $13

G ordered ceviche, which had prawns marinating in a citrus juice, some chili, cilantro and topped with pea shoots. The neat thing about this is the presentation. The ceviche itself is in a small shallow dish, but sits on top of a spherical vase filled with ice. Not only does this keep the ceviche nice and cold, it makes for a rather neat presentation. The prawns were crisp and cool, with a hint of chili heat. Unfortunately, the portion was rather small and left me wishing there was more to enjoy than what was served.

 

Brassai - Garden Greens
Garden Greens – $?? can’t remember!

M ordered garden greens, which was a mix of greens, thinly sliced cucumber, carrots, all dressed in a light dressing.

 

Brassai - Duck 1
Duck (view 1) – $33

For my main, I ordered duck. It’s breast meat that’s honey glazed and cooked to perfection. Before getting into what else is on the plate, let’s take another look at that breast meat.

 

Brassai - Duck 2
Duck (view 2)

Doesn’t it look divine? Pure YUM. It’s served on a bed of wild rice pilaf, roasted halved carrot, and roasted apricot. The little sauce dollops are puréed apricots! It gives a little sweetness to the saltiness of the duck. The best part of the duck is that the skin is still attached so you get the juiciness and flavour from the thin layer of fat into the breast meat. Also, portion wise, it is quite large so my belly was quite satisfied after eating this main! I would definitely recommend this dish.

 

Brassai - Scallops
Scallops – $28

Mr. Pixelbunny and G both ordered scallops. Each plate came with four perfectly cooked scallops, seared on both sides and super juicy and moist on the inside. They all sat on a bed of greens (which we think was kale?), and something puréed (darn it, I really need to remember to take pictures of the menu!!). Small pieces of chorizo are tucked in this dish, as well as some roasted heirloom tomatoes. If we come again, I want this dish!

 

Brassai - Gnocchi
Gnocchi – $?? can’t remember!

M ordered gnocchi. Each piece was a pillowy bite of chewy potato softness, served with a colourful array of roasted vegetables. Sliced cucumbers, bell peppers, sun dried tomatoes, all sitting  in a bed of light cream sauce.

 

Brassai - Sweet and Savoury
Sweet and Savoury – $?? can’t remember!

Both Mr. Pixelbunny and I ordered sweet and savoury for our dessert. There is crispy, crunchy maple bacon ice cream, which is the absolute winner here. The bacon is generous and sweet and salty at the same time. The wafer is reminiscent of a unrolled wafer roll, then painted with either a raspberry or strawberry glaze. Having done that, it honestly looks like a giant piece of bacon gracing my ice cream cup. Awesome. In the middle are perfect blocks of watermelon, arranged Jenga style. The watermelon is sweet and juicy, and extremely red in colour, which makes me wonder if it’s been marinating in something. Fresh raspberries and a small sprig of basil company the watermelon. Last but not least, are three pistachio madelines. These have a strong pistachio flavour (which I like), and are soft and fluffy, like mini cakes. I think I ate a little from each one, then finished the watermelon, the madelines next, then finally the ice cream. How can one not finish your entire meal with bacon?

 

Brassai - Pudding
Pudding – $?? can’t remember!

G ordered pudding for her dessert. She said there was something comforting about having just plain pudding for dessert. What she got was anything but plain. The pudding was a square block of light pudding, almost as light as a mousse but not quite. It’s served with some sort of foam on top. Next to it are three breaded and deep fried chocolate truffles. It was pretty interesting biting into this breaded ball, only to have warm, gooey chocolate spill out. The last one I’m not sure what it was as I didn’t try it, but it must have been good because G ate everything.

 

Brassai - Lime Cheesecake
Lime Cheesecake – $?? can’t remember!

M ordered lime cheesecake for her dessert, partly because she loves cheesecake, and also because our waiter informed us that there was only two left. The lime cheesecake was very light and fluffy, with a raspberry sorbet on top. The graham crust was sort of like a little biscuit at the bottom. There were also macerated strawberries, mint leaves, and icing sugar dusted around the plate. Mmm very very good.

 

The Verdict

An extremely delicious dinner with very attentive staff. It is a pricier fare so keep that in mind if you plan on going. If you’re ok with splurging, I would definitely recommend you coming here to eat! Another tip is if you’re in doubt as to what to order, ask your server. Ours were bang on with his recommendations. We loved everything he suggested to us!
