Mildred’s Temple Kitchen


One popular spot for brunch in Toronto is Mildred’s Temple Kitchen (Mildred’s for short), located in Liberty Village. Since it is one of the hot brunch places, you can bet that lining up is part of a routine. For my first visit, my friend Anila and I went on Saturday on a cold November, and there was still a line!

Just before 10 AM, there was a small line of ten people, awaiting for the doors to open. When it was time, one by one, each party was greeted to their table.

While I’ve never been to the original location of Mildred’s, formerly known as Mildred Pierce, I was well aware of its small restaurant space. However, this new location gives them much more space. It’s open, high-ceiling concept gives a welcoming but also high-end, modern outlook.

It was tough deciding what to order. I didn’t know if I wanted something savoury or sweet. I ended up choosing what Mildred’s is most likely famous for.

Mrs. Biederhof’s Blueberry Buttermilk Pancakes

I decided to go with the sweet option with the famous fluffy pancakes. For $16.50, the buttermilk pancakes are “served with a wild blueberry compote, Lanark County organic maple syrup & whipped cream”.

Looks can be deceiving, and with these pancakes, that is just the case. It might not look like a huge stack of pancakes but trust me, it’s bigger than it looks. I usually have a huge appetite but I could not finish this and Anila had to eat my leftovers.

The pancakes are indeed fluffy but they are also quite thick. Compared to the Japanese pancakes at Fuwa Fuwa, these bear weight. That’s why I got full. The blueberry compote was really good. It wasn’t too sweet or too tarte. It was the nice touch to the buttermilk pancakes. They also didn’t skimp on the amount of blueberry compote. It was a generous amount. The maple syrup was also delicious. I did run out of maple syrup and our waiter noticed and asked if I wanted some more. (I’m one of those that like to drench their pancakes in syrup!)

Mildred’s House Made Lemonades

I also ordered one of the lemonade drinks to go with my pancakes. For $4.50, you can have the regular or blueberry house made lemonade. To go with the theme, I chose the blueberry one.

You would think that having blueberry pancakes, ordering a blueberry lemonade drink would make me sick of blueberries. Well, the lemonade was actually quite refreshing and it didn’t have the same taste palette. I do highly recommend ordering this drink, especially if you want to add some colour to your brunch.

I had a nice time at Mildred’s Temple Kitchen and would like to go back and try one of their more savoury dishes for brunch or drop in for their dinner menu.

It's more metal to suck balls without using a plastic straw 🤟
⠀
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.
⠀
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.
⠀
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 🍝
⠀
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.
⠀
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 ✌️

Minus the five years of data that I lost, my phone and I are tapiokay now! 📱

Let's get 100% real here: Almost broke down because my phone died on Tuesday and currently can't afford a new phone. Luckily, factory resetting my phone fixed it! I also never backed up my phone for the 5 years I've owned it, so I lost all my contacts and other data not on my SD card. (So if you have my number, text me yours because I lost ALL. DA. NUMBERS.)
⠀
Thank you to @maestroannie for letting me use her phone for these photos! 🙏

Summer means it's Ribfest time! It's a yearly tradition for me to hit up any Ribfest I can in Ontario. Today I went to the @oakvilleribfest. Besides ribs, always gotta get the blooming onion, deep fried cheesecake, and funnel cake!

A nice, cold drink makes the summer heat beerable 🍺

I've been missing Iceland a lot lately and have been craving Einstök beer. Here's a #ThrowbackThursday post to when I ordered a non-alcoholic, alcoholic beer in Iceland. Read about this funny story on my travel account ✈ @asyoutravelit.

What's your favourite beer?
