Lisa Marie


Back in May, my coworker Zahnia, and I planned to attend the Mac and Cheese Festival. When we got there, we saw a huge lineup to purchase food vendor tickets. We figured it was not worth the wait (About a 2 to 4-hour wait) and decided to go elsewhere to eat.

We walked around Queen St. West and scoped out a few places. We finally chose Lisa Marie. I had never heard of this place before but we both like the interior of the place. Since we arrived during brunch time, we both ordered from the brunch menu. I had the Double Pancake Pork Burger and Zahnia ordered the Shakshukah.

When my food arrived, I had no clue how I was supposed to eat the burger. Do I use my hands? Or formally with a fork and knife? I attempted to eat the burger with my hands but the bottom pancake was all soggy and fell apart. I had to eat it with a fork and knife instead.Β The dish came with a little serving of maple syrup and a side of pad Thai fries (It was between that, a mixed green salad, or duck fat fries).

The burger was quite delicious. A pancake in a pork burger sounds weird but it’s kind of like having breakfast. Just imagine the pork burger as sausages! The pancakes were done nicely. They were fluffy, soft, and buttery. They definitely gave the pork a nice sweet taste, especially when dipped in the maple syrup. Maple syrup makes everything taste better!

The pad Thai fries were good but spicy! I forgot to squeeze the lime before eating them and then failed at squeezing the lime. The pad Thai sauce kind of tasted like buffalo chicken wing sauce. That’s not necessarily a bad thing, but if it’s supposed to be pad Thai, I’m expecting a pad Thai taste. I did like the addition of bean sprouts! A touch of a fresh, crunch taste.

I didn’t try Zahnia’s Shakshukah dish but she said it was good, so I’m taking her word for it.

I would definitely head back to this place after this visit. The food tasted great, service was good, and the interior is so pretty. Plus, your bill is given in a cassette tape case!

I also found out that this is one of Fidel Gastro’s restaurants, so you’re bound to have a good experience! If you’re in the Trinity Bellwoods area, drop by Lisa Marie for a bite!

Whiskey away to a colder climate, please! 🍧
β €
The summer heat is why one reason I can't stand this season but having @kekougelato makes it bearable!
β €
Yesterday I got a scoop of Whiskey Green Tea on top of a scoop of Durian. The Whiskey Green Tea holds more whiskey than green tea but eventually the taste of the whiskey starts to fade when you continue to eat it. And the green tea provides an almost Earthy element to the combo. When I combine that with the Durian, the Durian packs a much stronger flavour than the Whiskey Green Tea but both are still good flavours to get.
β €
Thank you again @alt.aria for your complimentary double scoop! πŸ’™

(Free) Food will always have a pizza my heart πŸ•
β €
To celebrate the grand opening of their Oakville location, @blazepizza is giving away free pizzas today from 11 AM to 10 PM! All you have to do is download the Blaze Pizza app and go line up for the free pizza! It's that simple! You can choose from one of their Signature pizzas or Build Your Own (1-2 toppings).
β €
I've been meaning to check out Blaze Pizza in Toronto but always forgot to and since I'm closer to Oakville, today's grand opening was the perfect way for me to try it! I got the Art Lover signature pizza (swipe ⏩), which has artichokes, ricotta, mozzarella, garlic, and dollups of tomato sauce. I also added some oregano. The pizza is thin (which I prefer), and though it doesn't look like much on the Art Lover one, it actually packs a lot of flavour.
(The other pizza pictured is the Meat Eater.)
β €
What's your go-to pizza topping?

Even in the summer heat, staying cool is popsicle 🍦
β €
Another year of going to the Burlington Food Truck Festival! If it wasn't so hot today, definitely could have enjoyed the festival more.
β €
1- Lime Mojito paleta from @wrestlers_to ($5)
2- Curry Fish Balls from @hk_food_station ($6 for 8)
3- Egg Waffles from @hk_food_station
4- Carne Mechada from @theareparepublic ($13)
β €
The Lime Mojito paleta was the best thing I ate, followed by the Curry Fish Balls. The Egg Waffle was burnt a bit, so it was like a crispy Egg Waffle cracker. The Carne Mechada was my least favourite. While it was a lot of meat, it was tough and semi-dry.
β €
What food festivals are you hitting up this summer?

It's more metal to suck balls without using a plastic straw 🀟
β €
I love bubble tea and the amount of it I've been drinking made me realize how much more plastic waste I've been contributing. So recently I've made the switch to using metal straws.
β €
While I might have to carry my straws with me and clean them myself, to save the Earth and reduce the effects of climate change, I'm willing to do it.
β €
Earth is not just for our generation but for our future kids' generation and their kids. It is our job to make sure the Earth is still alive and kicking for them 🌎

I'm back! Nice to meat you all again 🍝
β €
I've been MIA because of my phone. My almost 5-year old Sony Xperia Z3 bootlooped twice and I had to factor reset it, wiping everything, and I didn't get to back up all the internal data. Then my phone also corrupted a microSD card with new food photos I had, so I lost those too.
β €
So I've been looking for a new phone, and now after 11 years of being with Sony-branded phones, I'm now part of #TeamPixel ✌️
