Although our families are safe, the destruction of typhoon Haiyan is absolutely devastating and heart-wrenching. The photos, the facts, the numbers and the reports makes it impossible to not support our home country.
We’ve decided we are going to do as much as we can in the next few months to raise funds and this is going to be our first project.
Facials for Philippines Fundraiser is being headed by a fellow filipino whose family has been directly impacted by this great tragedy. Facials, booths of shops, a silect auction and a bake sale will be occuring at this event and foodtwiceeaten will be contributing to the bake sale.
Followers and fellow tumblrs in the GTA region, please come out to support this event or donate to the Philippine Red Cross.
The event will be held at the following location
19 Waterman Ave
Hopefully we’ll see you there!
Tanner and Merky
P.S. Thank you Tumblr for the amazing support you’ve given to this tragedy.
219 King St. E
The great things I’ve heard about this diner was never enough to get me to actually sit in by myself after my morning classes (due to lack of friends — lol, I’m just joking). Thankfully, Tanner suggested it, and Patrician Grill definitely deserved all the hype George Brown students give it. We arrived with one or two patrons sitting at the counter reading the newspaper, just before the lunch rush, cuz we left a full house.
277 Augusta Ave
The restaurant we’ve waited three long years to share with you has finally made it onto our blog! This is the very restaurant a prof recommended to Tanner where we decided to start FTE. El Trompo is a not-so-hidden gem of a little Mexican restaurant in the city that isn’t given enough praise for its authenticity and its environment.
From the ones we’ve tried, the guacamole is the best in the city — fresh made to order, creamy, with a little zing from the lemon juice, chopped tomatoes, and cayenne pepper mixed in.
For the tacos, the tortillas were soft and each filling had an amazing amount of flavour. There are many choices for tacos. We chose Al Pastor, Spicy Tinga Chicken and Bistec, and while these three were all solid choices, the Chorizo from our very first visit is still our favourite.
Phil devoured his plate of Al Pastor fajitas despite not realizing it’d be filled with onions and peppers. For desert we split the flan, which was dense (yet not at all heavy) with a syrupy sweetness you’d expect it to have.
El Trompo is definitely a place for good, authentic Mexican cuisine — it’s without the extras that turn it American/Tex-Mex.
Hello followers and fellow foodies out there!
Firstly, Tanner and I would like to apologize for our hiatus as things have gotten extremely busy for the both of us. Unfortunately, things look to be getting worse for me as I am going back to school.
Hold on for us and we promise we will have some reviews here and there. We do have a few we need to write so look out for those.
For now, here are some photos of a few cupcakes I made a couple of months ago. My Perfect Vanilla Cupcakes!
