|Dumpling House Restaurant|
Walking out of the hotel I made a right and there my adventure began. The walk was a pleasant one as it is about 80 degrees outside. This is my first visit to Toronto and all I could think about is how it feels just like being in NY... and that I really want some pork.

The Singapore noodles arrive first. Upon first glance I am completely in love, immediately remembering the small restaurant tucked away down an alley in Sydney that I found while wandering aimlessly. There is the perfect balance of seasoning and curry sauce is perfect. I have to stop myself as the dumplings have yet to arrive.
Then just ask resolve to not eat all the noddles is about to fail, the table next to me gets there dumpling order (it looks amazing). I begin to get excited as I know my order will be next. But then I realize mine did not come out as pretty as theirs... So you know in true Rebecca fashion, I asked them if I could take a picture of theirs... I'm only going to share the 'pretty' ones.
This meal turned out to be absolutely perfect. The dumplings melted in my mouth just the right shrimp to pork ratio. I honestly could not have asked for more...But as I walked back to the hotel I stumbled upon a small treasure hidden down an alley. A beautiful tribute to one of greatest hit makers that we lost way to soon... J Dilla
Toronto is definitely now on my list of places to return to and explore. I was only able to see and taste a small sampling of all that it has to offer.
Looking forward to more opportunities to explore Toronto and Eat Bright!!!
