Food post: One of my favourite Ice cream spots! 


This past weekend to celebrate Canada’s 150th birthday my boyfriend and I embarked on a road trip up north to stay at my family’s cottage. Along the way we decided to stop at one of my favourite childhood ice cream spots – “Brainfreezz” which is located in this adorable old tiny town called Thornton . It’s a small little ice cream shop that runs out of an old house and it has been there for quite a while as I’ve been stopping there on summer day trips home from the cottage since I was about 8. They have some of the best ice cream flavours ever and the tastiest waffle cones! They also have amazing yogurt ice cream -which is what I ordered- and they allow you to choose either chocolate or vanilla frozen yogurt and mix it with two kinds of frozen fruit. I opted for vanilla frozen yogurt mixed with raspberries and blueberries in a waffle cone and it was incredible! My boyfriend ordered an ice cream flavour called raspberry cheesecake and he enjoyed it a lot as well. 



I definitely reccomend this little place to anyone who lives in the Ontario area or who will be talking a road trip up north this summer! It’s a great little historic town to check out. 

Food Post 003: Amazing Korean Food 🥘 

This food appreciation post is for one of my favourite Korean restaurants in Toronto: Song Cook’s in the Thornhill area.

I always get the vegetable BiBimBap and it is absolutely amazing. The vegetables are so fresh and the food is very authentic. The seafood pancake is a must order starter dish and is very large making it perfect for sharing. I’m vegetarian so I can’t speak for the meat dishes but my dad and brother swear by the kalbi beef ribs with the brown rice.


Pictured above is a miso soup, which comes with the BiBimBap, brown rice, and a spicy tofu soup that my dad ordered.

I highly recommend Song Cook’s, it is the perfect Korean restaurant, the food is amazing, and the staff is very accommodating and even on the restaurants busiest days we’ve always been seated very quickly.
