Momofuku Daishō, Toronto

I visited Momofuku Daishō in Toronto last year and loved it, so was happy to take a lunch meeting there this afternoon to explore their updated menu. Here’s a look at some of the new offerings…

The Everything Buns…

Stuffed with smoked white whitefish from Kolapore, Ontario with horseradish and red onions…

The Dry Aged Beef Carpaccio from McGee Farms in Ontario…

They’re serving it with puffed pho, Thai basil, charred pear onions, shallots and crushed nuts…

The Vietnamese inspiration here was apparent and genius…

Chicken Thigh Bo Ssäm from the Harriston Co-Op in Ontario…

Served with sriracha, shiitake mushrooms, rice and Bibb lettuce for wrapping…

Their Thursday special…

The Roast Beef Sandwich on a Kimmelweck roll…

McGee Farms beef served French dip style with jus and horseradish, but also a homemade BBQ sauce…

And the tempura onion rings were amazing…

The edible flowers were a nice touch…

Spicy pickles on the side…

Washed down with a “Peach House” peach ale, a collaboration beer between Momofuku TO and Oast House Brewing out of Ontario…

A lovely afternoon with fantastic food to start my trip to Canada!

Bar Volo, Toronto

Nestled inside a leaf-covered building on the corner of Yonge and Dundonald is Toronto’s iconic Bar Volo beer bar, a must-visit location for any hophead…

With 26 rotating taps and 6 casks, Volo offers one of the finest selections of Canadian craft beers, and a few from foreign friends, that you will find anywhere in the city…

There is only one menu, the one you see above, that changes daily. You decide what you want, remember the corresponding letter to the left, and the bartenders pour your beer from the alphabetized taps…

I enjoyed three incredible beers from small Canadian breweries last night. First up was Konnichiwa Peaches, a peach hefeweizen from Oast House Brewers in Niagara…

Next up was the Gose from Les Trois Mousquetaires in Brossard, QC…

And I finished with a Corolis Effect berliner weisse from Sawdust City Brewing in Gravenhurst, Ontario, cropped to give you a little peak at Volo’s outside patio. on the left there…

Bar Volo also offers an extensive bottle list, an interesting collection of small batch whiskeys and domestic charcuterie and snacks.

A local institution that should no beer lover should miss!

Bean Beer

The skies were grey, the temperature was dropping, and i was in the mood for something warm. I picked up a can of Sixpoint’s new 4BEANS. Imperial porter, coffee beans, sounds good. It wasn’t until I had downed a glass – slightly coffee inflected, smooth and creamy with a mocha scent – that I realized everything that went into it.

4BEANS is brewed using actual beans. Brewing with beans isn’t unheard of. People have always substituted when they had too. Don’t have malt? Use a potato. Beans happen to be an excellent source of protein. Adding a handful of beans gives the beer more body without adding much sweetness.

Coffee and Romano beans, that’s two beans. The brewers at Sixpoint also added cocoa beans, or more specifically, the husks of cocoa beans. It sounds weird, but cocoa bean husks still taste like chocolate without all the fat you find in the nib.

The last bean in 4BEANS is vanilla which rounds everything out, adding a hint of sweetness without any sugar. And somehow adding to the other ingredients to make a 10% ABV beer that I can drink like cold brew coffee.
