It was feeling like forever since all my boys were in the same place, so a mini holiday in Toronto was organized by John ( away from home = no video games, eating at the same table, shared experiences)
We stayed at the Hilton which is across the street from one of my favourite restaurants
We celebrated the Lunar New Year a day late at Momofuku by ordering WAY too much food
Beckett had soccer on Saturday afternoon so Saturday consisted of the drive, checking in and eating a lot of food.
View from the 28th floor
Sunday had a bit more packed into it, we started with Vikings
The exhibit was jam packed with people who were slow readers 😡 but I excel at reading upside down and over shoulders so I got the gist of it. My favourite part?
It makes total sense since Pandora and Trollbeads started in Scandinavian countries
The boys went to see a photography exhibit next. I went to see Dior
It was wonderful!
Photographs don’t do the dresses and the exquisite hand stitching and embroidery any justice.
This dress reminds me of one my Auntie Cathie has that I borrowed to wear to a wedding when I was in university.
We ate lunch in Yorkville at Flo’s Diner and we did some shopping before heading to see Black Panther
I LOVE the Marvel universe and I hope they just keep expanding it. This one was stellar and I need some new Funkos.
Dinner afterwards was at Wurst on King Street and it was perfect. It has communal tables, a HUGE beer list and sausages like no other place, sort of has an Oktoberfest vibe ( but way calmer)
They serve Belgian fries ( cooked in duck fat) which are amazing, I had dirty fries ( piled with onions, peppers and jalapeños) Beckett had kangaroo sausage which is his new favourite food, John had Elk and Gunnar was a traditionalist and had Oktoberfest. It was a really fun dinner place and G looks forward to going back in a few months 😉
Monday was home time and we stopped for lunch in Hamilton
John read about Hambrgr in a Globe & Mail article about restauranteurs leaving Toronto and high rents for Hamilton. Lucky for us he remembered and it was open on Family Day because it is hands down the best burger place in the world.
We started with Tater Tot fondue
I had the Le Royale with cheese
Everybody was all over their burgers before I could get pictures. I seriously could have eaten everything on the menu ( although not soon, I’m still sooooo full)
