MOMOFUKU MILK BAR: cereal ice cream, cookies, crack pie.
190 University Avenue – noodlebar-toronto.momofuku.com
Sampling: cereal soft serve, crack pie soft serve, crack pie, corn cookies, compost cookies, double chocolate cookies, cornflake chocolate chip marshmallow cookies.
Sisters Kerrington (aka Snackington) and Breanne dig in.
The soft serve crack pie with cereal sprinkles was the clear favorite. We had to have security escort director Ron Murphy from the building to stop him from eating their entire supply.
On the move to our next location.

Settling in for Round #2.
Mean Jean Brophey checks out the maid cafe hall of fame!
Three different types of cheesecake. Surprisingly, there was a pretty even distribution of favorites.
TSUJIRI: matcha desserts

Good and good for you!

One big awkward thumbs up for the sushi at Japango from Ron!
STOP #4 (SAVORY INTERLUDE)
JAPANGO – Sushi
1122 Elizabeth Street – Japango
Impatiently awaiting sushi.
Ron lectures everyone on proper sidewalk sushi etiquette.
Alas, the pic doesn’t do the sushi justice. Delicious. It receives both Akemi and my seal of approval.
INFUSE CAFE: Organic teas and coffees (also boardgames!).
354 Yonge Street – Infuse Cafe
We actually planned to walk up to Red Bench for ice cream sandwiches, but it had the temerity to permanently cease operations sometime between the last time I visited and today. So, instead, we ended up going to Infuse Cafe, home of Toronto’s best teas and coffees, served hot OR cold.
You know what goes good with tea?
Homemade snickerdoodles and oatmeal-raisin cookies, of course.
My double order of the Ice Cream Sandwich Coffee, a glorious mix of coffee and, yes, ice cream sandwiches.
An out of control Ron Murphy cancels his tea order in favor of another ice cream sandwich coffee.
Lawren bids us a fond farewell in order to attend a purported business meeting.
Jean and Rowena, hopped up on sugar, offering free hugs to wary passersby.
Thanks to everyone who attended today’s foodie foray. We’re going to attempt to squeeze in one more tour (Toronto Dessert Tour Part 3!) before everyone scatters to the four winds once production ends.
