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.

Thanks a latte, @nespresso.ca ☕!
⠀
TIFF '19 ended this past Sunday. During the festival, I saw 19 films in 11 days. To try and stay awake, I drank lots of @nespresso coffee (swipe ⏩).
⠀
It started with one cup on Festival Street, where I had the Melozio. It has the intensity of 6. Then, when volunteering at the TIFF Industry Centre, I had many cups there during my shifts. I had one of the strongest ones twice in one day and instantly regretted it after my shift.
⠀
TIFF is when I mainly drink coffee because I need to stay awake for all the films.

I'll be frank, this is actually a veggie dog 🌭
⠀
Yesterday was the start of September, which meant I officially started being a lacto-ovo vegetarian. I'm not against eating meat but for health and environmental reasons, I've decided to make the lifestyle switch. I would like to cut out dairy and egg but it's too difficult for me right now.
⠀
I had a veggie dog today at @canadaslargestribfest from @theultimatefoodtruckco. It does have a different texture and taste but it wasn't that bad! It slightly tasted like some kind of tofu.

Keep calm and curry on! (Swipe ⏩)
⠀
Two weeks ago I went to Manpuku for a second visit, after a trip to the AGO. Again, I had the takoyaki but I also ordered the Curry Udon with beef.
⠀
For $6.99, the size was pretty good for the price. I do think for some people, the curry might be a bit "watered down". I know I wasn't used to it but there is still a prominent curry flavour. Also, for an extra $1.50, you can get a noodle refill but the amount given was perfect for me at the time.

Whiskey away to a colder climate, please! 🍧
⠀
The summer heat is why one reason I can't stand this season but having @kekougelato makes it bearable!
⠀
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.
⠀
Thank you again @alt.aria for your complimentary double scoop! 💙

(Free) Food will always have a pizza my heart 🍕
⠀
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).
⠀
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.)
⠀
What's your go-to pizza topping?
🍕🔥
