Fried Chicken Waffle|Harlem vs. Stockyard

As fried chicken on waffles became popular in Toronto, I decided to try different ones to see which is the best! (Probably just an excuse for me to eat more fried chicken and waffles) I’ve been to Stockyard a while back before even knowing Fried chicken on waffles existed, and believe me, I was quite amazed. When I saw that BlogTO had come up with the top 10 Fried Chicken on Waffles list AND Stockyard wasn’t even on it, I thought to myself I had to try how good the other ones are. (You can see their list for Top 10 Fried Chicken and Waffles Here.) Now, let me begin with Harlem Underground, the one we picked out from the list.

On a Saturday, Melissa and I went on an adventure after a stressful week at work. We decided to go to Harlem Underground because it was close to Eatons and we wanted to go shopping after. My first impression of the restaurant was that I didn’t know what to think of it (not really an impression…sorry). The interior seemed like a mix of different things. What I thought was cool was the skeleton stools they had. (Not very comfortable to sit in, but definitely cool) We were both starving so we went straight to ordering. We ordered a drink, quesadillas, hummus dip and of course, Fried Chicken and Waffles.

Their menu was a music disc look-a-like! that’s fits their restaurant theme pretty nicely. They have bands that plays at their restaurants (I think every Wednesday) at night.

Here’s a selfie of me and Melissa!

We were quite disappointed about the hummus dip because they ran out of avocado and without the avocado it’s really just a regular hummus dip. We still managed to finish a lot just because we were hungry! And I have to give them credits for the good-looking quesadillas… Even looking at it now (at 2am) I still want to take a big bite.

A Day in Toronto: Gusto 101-Italian Cuisine

Toronto is a downtown city where financial industries thrive, yet its architectural culture is full of history. I have never lived in Toronto long enough to call myself a Torontonian, but I’ve paid enough visits there to be able to shop and eat like a local! As of now, I also travel to the office in downtown (right above Eaton Centre actually) to work, and I must say I love that.

I enjoy Toronto for its fast-paced lifestyle. And as much as I loved living in Vancouver, I did find a lot more unique and enjoyable food in Toronto. Even on a day alone, I would allow myself to indulge in dangerously delicious food if I am in Downtown Toronto. Let’s skip the jibber jabber so I can bring you on a day trip with me to Downtown Toronto (Mostly Food)!

CN-Tower

Here’s my view out the window from my office.

On a good day, the view definitely cheers me up. If I do work late, I even get to see all the pretty lights they put on CN Tower. Maybe next time I will bring you up with me to the 360 revolving restaurant where you can see 1,151 ft (351 meters) below. (:

My mornings working in downtown are usually very busy, so having a nice and relaxed lunch is not really an option. BUT, this is when I make up my bad eating habits with healthier choices.

Eat Fresh Foods

I chose this salad place in the food court because it’s fresh, lets me customize my salad, plus it’s menu is adorable! To be honest, I am a meat person who also loves her carbs. A good tip I use to keep myself from craving for unhealthy food is to eat my salad until I am full and stop craving for anything else. Usually people would tell you to eat until you’re not hungry, but for salad, I’d have to eat until I’m VERY full. haha.

Like I said, I am a meat/crabs person, so a burger for dinner is inevitable. KIDDING! I really only got one because I want to share with you the amazing burger in food court. WHAT?! I know right. Eaton Centre has opened up a eatery that’s almost like the food court, but the food is more gourmet than fast food. Eatery-Burger The Motherlode (The Custom Grill, Richtree Natural Market Restaurant)

yummmy! I love fried eggs in my burger especially with runny yolk! You can even ask for heated cheese sauce with no extra cost. For a food court burger, The Motherlode is definitely a 10/10.

Now, you must think I already had my dinner… You’re Wrong!
