Late Entry: Kenzo Ramen and Tea Shop 168

Hello everyone,

I was cleaning out my hard drive and I have noticed some really old food photos which I have not blogged about.

This was in 2009. I had blogged about Kenzo Ramen's Original store which is located on Steeles and Yonge. Click on the link below if interested.

John's friends were hanging out in Kenzo Ramen in Downtown where Dundas is. They recently opened a second resturant there.

Enjoy the Photos!

Their Menu....
So much Ramen ^.^

Cutting board with a stick.. lol it has their logo on it. I have no idea what it is. I should ask next time.

I have no idea what this says. However I can tell you a bit about the Japanese mask . I'm not an expert in Japanese Culture but someone told me there is a day in their calendar where they celebrate sex & fertility. Yes, Sex! And the long nose represents a penis. People parade down the streets with this mask and all sort of things. If you don't believe me, click here:

Can't read this..

Onigiris are pretty much rice balls for those who don't know. This triangle type is wrapped in seaweed. They are so awesome. In the Korean Market, they generally used to sell 3 flavours: Tuna-Mayo with sesame, Korean BBQ-Kimchi and I think Korean BBQ. One time, I went to Japan town and I saw some Onigiri with umeboshi which is a pickled plum. I wanted to try it out but some Japanese man grabbed the last 3 and purchased it. Next time I go to Toronto, I definately need to return to Japan-Town for Onigiris and they got wonderful Chocolate Turtles in their Bakery section.

Good know to the Expiry date ^.^
They got numbers on it so you know how to peel off the plastic in such a way that the seaweed remains intact with the ball of rice.

One of my friends purchased this one. If my memory was correct it didn't have a filling in the middle.

Onigiri Star! ^.^

Naruto is that white circle with the pink spiral in the middle. Its fish cake.

Omg.. I'm so hungry !

Takoyaki! Its pretty much sea urchants like a piece of shrimp,squid, octopus in the middle of a battered ball. On top are the toppings, Japanese Mayo, some gree stuff and Bonito (fish) flakes. This dish is pretty cool to look at when it arrives to your table because the heat from the balls makes the bonito flakes move like butterflies flapping their wings. Becareful! This shit can burn your mouth because comes straight out of the grilling mold that shapes it into a ball!

Never again am I having these crappy desserts! It tasted horrible! It was pretty much frozen cream on a plate.

Bubble tea!
White = ?
Orange = Mango
Pink =Strawberry
Reddish - Pink = Watermelon
Grey Purple = Taro
White again??? Hmm.. Mystery flavour.

Hot Waffles with fruit & Ice cream! ^.^ Lovely presentation!

This tea shop 168 was great! I always go there. I would reccomend everyone to visit location or the one near North York Station. It is clean, its not desserted and they got some games in their store you can play while eating or drinking.
