🐝 Diet? What diet? Finally tried @jollibee after nearly 4 months waiting for the queue to die down. Miraculously, when I went, there was NO QUEUE. I tried to get one of each of their signature items, so I wouldn’t have to go back (and possibly endure a queue)! I ended up getting the spaghetti and spicy fried chicken combo with pineapple juice, Yum burger, and the Peach Mango pie. The Yum burger did not live up to its name; the meat in it was grey and didn’t taste fresh. The spag was pretty good — it’s Filipino style, so it’s a tad sweeter than I usually like it, but not off-putting. I think the savoury shredded cheese over the top offsets the sweetness nicely. The fried chicken had a decent amount of heat! It was nice and crispy, but it was probably a mistake for me to choose spicy🔥. I thought it would be North American spice level, nope. The pineapple juice was good, but a tad on the sweet side to be truly refreshing. Finally, the Peach Mango pie was alright. It had a decent amount of filling — mostly peach with the fragrant aftertaste of mango (that notably did not taste artificial), enveloped in a crispy fried crust. It was good, but probably not worth the pricetag. The real winners on this menu are the spaghetti and chicken, but by all means, try the pie if you must. Definitely skip that burger though. 🙅🏻♂️ Also, can anyone tell me what that small pot of gravy was for???
When you spot a cutie across the street. 🚶🏻🍻 Oi, I've got a beer for you.
Out here celebrating one year of @goosetoronto pours here in Toronto. ✨ So many special editions on tap like their 'mature situations' a barrel-aged belgian tripel (made with blackberries, 9.7%) and 'bourbon county' a bourbon barrel-aged stout that's a staggering 14.1%. 🤑 Damn delicious. #takemymoney
Strawberry Shaved Ice 😍😍🍓
I usually tend to go for Korean shaved ice, but this was actually really good! It wasn’t too icy, and you can really taste the strawberry (and it’s not those artificial taste!). I really like the ice cream as well 😋😋
@meetfreshtoronto is launching strawberry and mango shaved ice for their summer items starting TODAY! There will be a discount on these shaved ice from July 20 to 27 😍 and if you want to try both flavors, they have one called Gemini, which is basically half mango and half strawberry. Best of both worlds!

Prepare to be disappointed - matcha soft serve and Vita lemon tea soft serve at Matcha Tea & Dessert. We were excited to try their new Vita series, but we arrived to discover that they didn’t have the Vita soy milk soft serve, which was what I wanted. When it was our time to order, I wanted the matcha soft serve in the black cone and was willing to pay extra, but was told that they didn’t have the black cone either, to which I couldn’t help but ask, ‘why are you out of everything?’ The Vita lemon tea soft serve lacked in all dimensions - weak in tea flavour, nonexistent lemon flavour, no creaminess at all. It was icy and tasted like watered down Vita lemon tea. Oh and if you want it in a cup like my friend @panda3xpr355, you have to pay an extra 50 cents, but the swirl you get in the cup is small and very sad-looking. And there’s no point in paying for the cup anyway because the cone is literally just used as a cup because no one ends up eating it since it is stale. The garbage can outside was full of uneaten stale cones. As for my matcha soft serve? Matcha flavour was there, but it was icy. As per @mckiddoo, the charcoal soft serve lacked coconut flavour, even though they said it was supposed to be flavoured with coconut. All 6 of us had been excited to try this place, but left feeling very disappointed. Will definitely never, ever return.
OH DEER @thealley.to ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
