Uncle Tetsu’s Japanese Cheesecake, Toronto

Love Affair with Food, Yummy North America

This small Japanese cheesecake shop opened recently in Toronto and it has been a great hit…

I finally give in and start lining up…😁

People are lining up up to 2 hours to try the cheesecake..since when we need to line up in Toronto for a cheesecake?!?

           

It takes about 45 minutes to make a batch of 10 yummy cheesecakes…..and the machine can only bake upto 3 batches at once…

 

My cheesecake is finally ready…over an hour waiting….

They are stamping it…so cute… 

  Too bad we are limited to buy one per person 😦

We found a cafe near by and ….

Digging in .. 

Omg omg omg…

Soooooooooooooo yummy

The cake is super fluffy and moist.  Just the right sweetness and it just melted in my month…we finished the cake in less than 5 minutes…

I can’t wait to eat it again…😘

Laduree, Paris

Love Affair with Food, Yummy Europe

i just love love love Laduree…

Each time I visit a city with a Laduree shop, I will go in and buy a box of their famous macarons…

There are few Laduree shops in Paris and all of them have a long line up…mostly because of tourists like me…hahaa

I love their window displays

So pretty and girly…

Cute little Laduree stickers and accessories…

I already got two of their popular macaron keychains…so I didn’t buy any this time…

        

Almost my turn…

  

My little treat 🙂

Looking forward to my next Laduree encounter…

Love Affair with Food, Yummy North America

I love high tea…..enjoying a nice cup of tea and catching up with my girl friends…

Most important…an exercise for me to dress up…

This time I picked the High Tea at Ritz Carlton Toronto.

First, we got to pick the organic tea from the tea box…

ZenKashoin Tea Cafe, Tokyo ShinQs

Love Affair with Food, Yummy Asia

Every time I visit Tokyo…I will try to look for an authentic matcha tea cafe to satisfy my craving 🙂

I came across this tea cafe by accident..My goal was to visit the Hikarie ShinQs department store (a must visit for ladies) and it was a bonus…when I saw this cafe hidden on the 5th floor of the department store.

Dessert time…:)

The cafe gives me a very zen like atmosphere…

  

This cafe is originally from Koyto, photo of their head office in Koyto.

I ordered the matcha dessert and tea combo…

My weakness … Matcha…love love

Matcha ice-cream drizzled with matcha sauce and matcha cake…matcha overload 🙂

If you are not a matcha fan, they also have coffee and other flavor desserts.

My friend ordered Chestnut dessert with coffee…just as yummy 🙂

I love dessert and Tokyo…
