Baddies


There are many good brunch places in Toronto, but one place I have been wanting to try is Baddies—the sister place of COPS Doughnuts. On Record Store Day, I finally got to try it out. After leaving our houses at 6 AM, waiting in line for an hour, browsing and purchasing records for Record Store Day, my friend Anila and I had time to make it for brunch at Baddies.

Arriving sharply at 9 AM, we were the first ones. The place wasn’t entirely ready to open but they seated us while preparing for the day. Within five to ten minutes, the place started to fill up. I didn’t realize people were THIS eager to have brunch on a Saturday morning. Baddies isn’t a big place, so I guess you have to arrive early to get a spot.

At Baddies, when you’re ready to order, you head to the counter to place your order and make payment. Then you’ll be given a numbered wooden stick for your table.

 

Matcha Latte

Since I had just two hours of sleep and my day started super early, I needed that dose of caffeine. I actually forgot about it until Anila made her order first and got a flat white. l quickly browsed at the drinks and went for the Matcha Latte (~$4.50).

According to the website, the matcha is Jeju matcha from O5 tea Vancouver. I don’t know the difference between matchas, so this information means nothing to me. I just prefer matcha over green tea—I actually don’t like green tea (Don’t @ me!).

When the latte arrived, I was surprised by how big it was (the picture on the right doesn’t do it justice). Filled to the very top, the matcha latte had a, um, leaf latte design, but truthfully and for lack of a better word, it looked more like a penis. I had to mix it with the spoon because I couldn’t look at it without thinking of it as that the whole time.

Usually the matcha flavour is quite strong and powering but this wasn’t. It was light and creamy, and I liked that. It was a nice touch for an early Saturday morning. Near the bottom of the cup, I did have to mix it a bit more to even out the matcha flavour throughout the rest of the latte.

 

The Vegan Ting

All the options on the menu looked so good. I was torn between The Brash and The Vegan Ting. But, since I don’t like bacon (Don’t @ me again!) I thought it was best to go for The Vegan Ting (~$14). Also, it’s been a while since I had a proper vegan meal.

The Vegan Ting is vegan and gluten-free. This dish includes “a squash fritter, radish, mixed greens, shallot vin, and an almond dressing.

When it arrived, it was like a huge plate of salad. I was not expecting that. Piled under the layers of mixed greens and avocado is the squash fritter. It was a thin, slightly crispy, chewy, and soft fritter. It was so tasty that I wish it was a bit thicker. It really went well with the radish, shallot vin, and creamy almond dressing. It was the nice carb complement to those distinct flavours.

I’m not a huge fan of dairy-based dressings, so the almond dressing was perfect. It was creamy and did not have an overpowering dressing taste. It was light and a smooth touch. I really liked it with the squash fritter. Also, I thought that the amount of sesame seeds sprinkled on top would be a problem but I barely noticed them as I made my way through this dish.

I know some people recoil at the sight of a vegan dish but honestly, this was so tasty. I HIGHLY recommend it and would 100% order it again.

I also tried a bite of Anila’s dish, The Brash and that was really good too. It’s packed with so much flavour. So, if you still are against vegan dishes, then The Brash is a good alternative.

Baddies also sells baked good likes cookies and sausage rolls. I didn’t get them but Anila did and she said they were good, especially the cookies (She kept going back to order more!).

For a small place, Baddies sure brings an atmosphere larger than the area it holds. The food is great and the staff is really nice. I, for sure, will be back for another visit.

Want a piece of this? It's really cheesy 🍰
⠀
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 🇨🇦—Let's par-tea! 🎉 ⠀
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 ⏩) 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.
⠀
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!
⠀
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! 😋
⠀
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!
⠀
And if you're sharing this dish, go for the social size option—it's cheaper when splitting the bill! 😉
