Ontario Science Centre + Marché Restaurant | Toronto Travel Guide

 

December 31, 2016

Hello lovelies! Hope your Christmas and New Year’s celebrations were fun! I’m starting to get back into the swing of regular blog posts. How did you spend your New Year’s Eve? I’ve always been the type of person who wants to go out on New Year’s, wear a fancy dress, and party all night! However, I’ve haven’t actually been able to cross that off my bucklet list. Maybe next year. This New Year’s Eve, we took it easy.

Matt and I had a pair of free tickets to the Ontario Science Centre which expired on the 31st. We had no other plans, so we thought why not? I’ve never actually been to the Science Centre, so we figured it would make for a nice little date. Unfortunately it’s a little ways outside of downtown Toronto, just off the Don Mills Parkway.

Liquid nitrogen ice cream – a concept I had never heard about before going to The Ice Cream Lab in Little Tokyo, Los Angeles. The Ice Cream Lab lets customers pick base flavours and toppings to be added to a liquid nitrogen mixture, producing smooth, creamy ice cream with tons of customizable options! The idea is pretty similar to Cold Stone creamery (with the marble slab), except much more ~sciencey~. Keep reading for my order and experience!

Shin-sen-gumi Hakata Ramen & Wandering Around Little Tokyo, Los Angeles

A trip to Shin-sen-gumi Hakata Ramen in Little Tokyo for the best authentic Japanese Ramen that LA has to offer.

Shin-Sen-Gumi Hakata Ramen

Welcome to another edition of ~Sachie’s California Food Diaries!~ Today, we’re going to take a look at some delicious Japanese ramen from Shin-sen-gumi. With a few locations throughout LA, Shin-sen-gumi Hakata Ramen is the go-to, hotspot location for authentic Japanese Ramen! The little Tokyo location was absolutely packed during the Anime Expo weekend, so we decided to return the week after. You may remember my trip to the Fountain Valley location by Huntington Beach last year! That post actually came in handy because I remember I really liked my order, and I’m glad I wrote it down.

Santa Monica Pier & Gen Korean BBQ | A Week in California

An evening stroll on the Santa Monica Pier…

Following our day trip to the Getty Museum (which you can read about here,) we decided to head on down to Santa Monica! The main purpose of our trip was to stop by Third Street Promenade to do a spot of shopping (hello Madewell, Cotton On, and most importantly… Uniqlo!). I follow a ton of LA vloggers on Youtube, so it was really funny for me when I stepped into the little shopping plaza at the end of the street and felt like I had been there before!
