Toronto, for the Very First Time

leave a comment »

Here comes the second post from my brain.  A few of us went to Toronto last weekend for a number of reasons, not the least of which was the Toronto Island Festival, featuring Pavement, Broken Social Scene, Band of Horses, Beach House, and Timber Timbre (whom we missed).  It was a great show.  And, much to my satisfaction, it also featured an impressive display of clouds and an astonishing, screen-saver worthy sunset (see photo).  We also ate like animals there, but since I have no photos of the food, I’ve included a photo of the sunset.  Ah, pretty…

So, I’ll do a quick rundown of the (spectacular) eating we did, but want to start with what was, for me, the clear highlight and the food that calls for a return to Toronto very, very soon.  That is the boneless chicken roti from Caribbean Roti Palace, which was featured in a post by jayrhu (our Toronto expert) last year.  Oh-my-fucking-god it was good.  Just looking at the pictures makes me all antsy.  The place clearly gets respect from the locals.

Macanese Egg Tarts

Macanese Egg Tart, Macau

Digging through old photos of food…

All of the guidebooks tell you that no trip to Macau is complete without trying an egg tart.  They are sold everywhere.  We bought one on our way to the famous facade of the ruined St. Paul’s cathedral.  Even though ours was probably not from the finest purveyor and had been sitting in a warming oven, it was delicious.  Very sweet and buttery, especially where it was carmelized on the top.

Probably the best thing about Macau.
