Aunt’s Birthday Dinner


It was my one of my aunt’s birthday dinner back in November. I finally took the time to transfer the photos onto my hard drive so I can post them.

For birthdays in my family, it’s either we go to a restaurant or stay at home and have a feast. For my aunt’s birthday, we stayed at home and ordered take-out. It’s always a mixture of different Asian dishes – mainly Chinese, Vietnamese and Japanese. Enough jibber jabber, let’s get on to the food!

 

Fried wontons.

I don't remember what this is but one of my aunt's made it.  I think it has red bean in it. I know it's sort of sticky.

My plate of cake. I'm pretty sure I had seconds, or even thirds, as usual.

What kind of dishes do you and your family usually have at big family gatherings?

Want a piece of this? It's really cheesy ๐Ÿฐ
โ €
In 2015, I went to Sugar Marmalade went it first opened in Mississauga. I wasn't impressed with it. Four years later, my opinion hasn't changed at my second visit. Check out my quick review in my IG Stories.

It's the long weekend ๐Ÿ‡จ๐Ÿ‡ฆโ€”Let's par-tea! ๐ŸŽ‰ โ €
Earlier this week I finally got to try @thealley.ca in Toronto. Since it was my first visit, I decided to order the Deerioca. This drink is made with brown sugar instead of white. Make sure you mix it (Swipe โฉ) before drinking it, otherwise the brown sugar will only settle at the bottom. You also have the option of choosing regular milk or soy milk.
โ €
It wasn't bad but the brown sugar didn't give me the sweetness I'm used to. It did taste familiar to a non-bubble tea drink. But I wouldn't mind going back to try a different drink to compare to other bubble tea places.

If you have any recommendations, leave it in the comments :)

Yolks on you if you don't order the Spaghetti Carbonara from @scaddabush!
โ €
My go-to order is usually the Roasted Fennel & Sausage Fettuccine but yesterday I decided to try something different. I went for the Spaghetti Carbonara and it was delish! ๐Ÿ˜‹
โ €
It was creamy and full of flavour. I also don't like bacon (Don't @ me!) but thus was bearable for me. It was a bit too oily near the bottom of the dish, so make sure you mix it well!
โ €
And if you're sharing this dish, go for the social size optionโ€”it's cheaper when splitting the bill! ๐Ÿ˜‰
