T&T Supermarket in Waterloo is now opened ๐ŸŽŠ๐ŸŽˆ๐ŸŽ€๐ŸŽŠ . If youโ€™re wondering why Iโ€™m so psyched about a grocery store, itโ€™s because T&T offers a massive variety of East Asian foods not commonly found elsewhere. My favourite sections are their prepared hot foods such as BBQ Roast Duck ๐Ÿฆ† and bakery section ๐Ÿฐ. Their produce features exotic fruits that Iโ€™ve never had before. Check it out! They may or may not replace your go-to grocery store! . .

TGIF Yโ€™all ๐Ÿ˜†๐Ÿฅ‚๐Ÿน . . Grand Surf Lounge is across the street from Charles St Terminal, and ran by the same peeps as Grand Trunk Saloon. Like the name suggests, itโ€™s a Hawaiian/surging theme where the dining tables are surf board shaped. If you like your drinks and food on ๐Ÿ”ฅ, check out the Volcano Bowl ๐ŸŒ‹ and Flaming Crab Rangoon. . . @grandsurflounge #poke #hawaiilife #dtklove #kitchener #dtkitchener #kitchenerfoodies #kwawesome #tgif #519food #explorewr
Vivo Pizza + Pasta ๐Ÿis now opened in the Northfield Plaza and theyโ€™re pretty dope!

Shanghai Story opened up recently beside King Fu Tea on Lester Street! They donโ€™t have an online presence (at least that I can find), and if you donโ€™t eat pork, the only thing you can have is the oil noodles (sorry @_ra_heem ๐Ÿ˜…!!) . . #dimsum #universityofwaterloo #็”Ÿ็…ŽๅŒ… #xiaolongbao #lesterstreet #kitchenerfoodies #waterloofoodies #kwfood #519food #newwaterloorestaurants

Tuck into some Caribbean curry ๐Ÿ› this chilly winter โ„๏ธโ˜บ๏ธ. . Markโ€™s Caribbean Kitchen is a relatively new spot in Downtown Kitchener, where Amaya used to be. The food is phenomenal, just slightly more ๐Ÿ’ต than Rainbow ๐ŸŒˆ across the street. They also do takeout if youโ€™re not ready to bear the cold ๐Ÿ˜œ. . . @markscaribbean @dtkitchener #dtkitchener #dtklove #dtkfood #kitchener #oxtailcurry #caribbeanfood #kwawesome #kitchenerfoodies #foodiesofwaterloo
Iโ€™m late to the party but if you havenโ€™t been, the โ€œ#1 Taiwanese dessert spotโ€ just opened up beside Burger King and itโ€™s pretty ๐Ÿ”ฅ โ„๏ธ. . If you havenโ€™t seen the 20+ other posts about MeetFresh and their grand opening, theyโ€™re a dessert place serving up traditional Taiwanese eats and drinks. Theyโ€™re all over the world with more than 600 stores globally, and best known for their taro balls, herbal jelly, and preservation of tradition Taiwanese flavours. Everything is also crazy fresh with nothing kept for more than 1 hour. ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ‘ . Thanks again @meetfreshontario and @sweven_media for the tasting! ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜‹ . . #meetfreshontario #kwfood #Kitchener #kitchenerfoodies #waterloofood #waterloofoodies #meetfresh #meetfreshwaterloo #kwawesome #universityofwaterloo
Hot cup of espresso โ˜•๏ธ , milk, a Lindt chocolate ๐Ÿซ and shot of Baileys ๐Ÿท is a match made in heaven by this new, cozy cafe up on Columbia. If chocolate isnโ€™t your thing, they also have cake truffles. ๐Ÿฐ The baileys infused versions donโ€™t have a strong alcoholic taste to it, but the Whiskey Dark Chocolate Truffle does. . . @theexoticaofficial #coffee #alcoholinfused #alcoholinfuseddesserts #coffeeaddict #caketruffles #kwfood #kitchenerfoodies #waterloofood #kwawesome #latte โ˜•๏ธ
I was hurting for noodles ๐Ÿฒ when Noodles One left but my prayers have been answered when @golnoodle came to town. They completely revamped Al-Madinaโ€™s old location into this trendy, bright, and bustling noodle shop. The service is incredibly friendly and you get your noodles ridiculously fast. Iโ€™m definitely going back to try the rest of the menu ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜‹ . . #noodles #beefnoodlesoup #universityofwaterloo #waterloo #kitchener #kitchenerfoodies #waterloofoodies #kwfood #bowlofnoodles #foodporn
This is Galitoโ€™s, a new Peri Peri chicken ๐Ÿ— place in Downtown Kitchener. I really like the space๐Ÿ‘, they have comfortable booths, cool lighting, and large windows for natural light. ๐ŸŒž . . ๐Ÿ“Galitoโ€™s | 29 King Street East, Unit 6, Kitchener . . #dtklove #dtk #dtkitchener #kitchener #kwawesome @galitoschicken #periperichicken #nandosperiperi #kitchenerfoodies #waterloofoodies
Edelweiss Tavern is a Kitchener classic. They have a pub/tavern in the main areas, but they also cater fancy food in another room. I was surprised they were pretty busy on a Sunday! ๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ˜ . . #kitchenerfoodies #kwawesome #waterlooeats #waterloofood #519food @edelweisstavern #edelweisstavern #torontofood #tastetoronto #torontoeats
For baked pastries and cakes almost too good to eat, Nougat ranks pretty high on that list. . The Nougat on Stirling (thereโ€™s a smaller one in Uptown) is an European snack emporium. Theyโ€™ve got cakes, pastries, chocolates, candies, and even deli meats for those craving something savoury. โ€” #kwawesome #cakesofinstagram #cheesecake #europeanpastries @nougatbakery #nougat #kwfood #kitchenerfoodies #kitchener #tooprettytoeat
Have you tried Aboriginal food before? ๐Ÿ˜ฎ . University of Waterlooโ€™s Indigenous Student Centre holds an annual Pow Wow in Waterloo Park late September (I know....Iโ€™m procrastinating...๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ˜‡). You can watch (and partake in!) traditional dances, walk around and support local associations and vendors by buying artisanal native things, and of course, eat some fry bread. The Fry Bread was pretty dense and it tastes deep fried because it had a crusty golden exterior. The combination of bologna and fry bread marries well together๐Ÿ˜›๐ŸŽ€. . PS does anyone know where to find Aboriginal food in the area? This festival was the only time I came across it ๐Ÿ™ƒ โ€” Waterloo Park (by the bandshell) September 22, 2018 โ€” Bologna on Frybread $6 โ€” #frybread #frybreadpower #bannock @uwindigenous #waterloo #waterloofood #waterloofestivals #kwawesome #kwfood #uptownwaterloo
This was the first time I ordered food from Instagram, and I have to say, it was quite interesting and unique! ๐Ÿ˜—๐Ÿ˜…. . Gazeboโ€™s Food Scene is a new venture started by UW students that cooks and serves up Soul food. Their combo this weekend is Poussin Chicken (save you the Google, poussin = young chicken) and Biscuit Pudding. You order either through Instagram or the phone number on their social media pages and if you order less than 5 items, you pick it up on the corner of Bulk Barn in the Bridgeport Plaza. They deliver to anywhere in KW for orders 5 or more. Everything is homemade from the ๐ŸŸ to the ๐Ÿ”๐Ÿ—. . I said the experience was interesting because Iโ€™ve never bought food like this before but tbh, I think Iโ€™m missing out (FOMO yo). Apparently there are countless more ventures just like Gazebo that provides home cooked meals of every cuisine ๐Ÿฅ™๐ŸฅŸ. โ€” Gazeboโ€™s Food Scene | Corner of Bulk Barn in Bridgeport Plaza โ€” ๐Ÿ— Poussin Chicken Combo (fries, chicken, salad) $13, no tax ๐ŸŽ‚ Small Chocolate Biscuit Pudding $6, no tax (tastes like a cake made of graham crackers ๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿคค) โ€” @gazebosfoodzone #soulfood #poussinchicken #poussin #homemade #chickendinner #kwawesome #kitchener #kwfood #waterloo #laurier #universityofwaterloo #yummy #eeeeeats #519food #kitchenerfoodies #takeout
Watami re-opened in Uptown!! ๐ŸŽŠ๐ŸŽ‰๐Ÿ™Œ. . Watami has been making a splash in the food scene since they opened. They are not AYCE and people have been saying the quality of their ๐ŸŸ is top notch so expect to spend a bit more ๐Ÿ’ฐ. I love the interior, very clean, modern and comfortable โ˜บ๏ธ. โ€” Watami Sushi | 14 King Street North, Waterloo โ€” ๐Ÿฃ Special Roll: Black Dragon $14 + tax ๐Ÿท (off menu) Pork Jowl $8 + tax ๐Ÿ“ Chicken Cartilage $13 + tax ๐Ÿš Pork Katsu Bento $14 + tax ๐Ÿ— Chicken Karaage $8 + tax ๐Ÿต Pot of Ginger Tea $8 + tax ๐Ÿน Signature Drink Strawberry Lover $7 + tax ๐Ÿฆ Homemade Black Sesame, Bamboo Charcoal Frozen Yogourt $7 + tax ๐Ÿฐ Tofu Cheesecake $7 + tax ๐Ÿจ Homemade Strawberry Cream Cheese Ice Cream $7 + tax โ€” #sushi #porkjowl #japanesefood @watami_sushi #dynamiteroll #bbq #chickencartilage #sushiaddict #tofucheesecake #homemadeicecream #chickenkaraage #uptownwaterloo #eatlocal #buylocal #uptowneats #kitchenerfoodies #kitchener #waterloo #kwawesome #kwfood
Thereโ€™s an adorable coffee/bakery โ˜•๏ธ ๐Ÿฅ shop tucked away behind Laurierโ€™s Lazaridis Hall on Balsam Street @sticksandsconescakes . . Silly me, I tried their tea ๐Ÿต when I shouldโ€™ve tried their gorgeous sugar cookies ๐Ÿช or lovely cupcakes ๐ŸŽ‚ My friend is in love with their banana loaf that you can buy from Dana Shortt, so I would recommend getting that too. All in all, they have good tea, great atmosphere, friendly owner and amazing baked goods. โ€” Sticks and Scones | 62 Balsam Street, Waterloo โ€” Loose leaf tea $2.50 + tax โ€” #coffee #tea #coffeeshop #bakery #cafe #coffeeshop #cafedumonde #cafeๅทกใ‚Š #tealover #kwawesome #waterloo #wilfridlaurieruniversity #wlu #uw #universityofwaterloo #kitchenerfoodies #kwfood #kwcafe
Peri Peri Chicken is always a good time ๐Ÿ— ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿคค. . This was my first time to Nandoโ€™s in Kitchener and it was ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿ‘. I thought it was weird that you pay at the counter while you order, then dine in like a fast food restaurant because they still help bring the food to you and whatnot. Food was amazing though, 10/10 would definitely go back for more. โ€” Nandoโ€™s | 569 Fairway Road South, Kitchener โ€” ๐Ÿ“ Grilled Chicken Liver (with Nandoโ€™s Roll) + Peri Peri Fries $10.75 + tax ๐Ÿ” 1/2 Chicken + Peri Peri Chippers ๐Ÿ˜ $14.10 + tax ๐Ÿฆ BOTTOMLESS Frozen Yogurt $4.25 + tax ๐Ÿฅง Pasteis de Natas (egg tart) $2.65 + tax โ€” #nandos #nandosperiperi #periperi #periperichicken #grilledchicken #chicken #delicious #lunch #yummy #chickenliver #periperifries #kitchener #519foods #kitchenerfoodies #instagood #instafood #eatingforttheinsta #eeeeeats #kwawesome
As much as I like to consider my palate diverse, I confess I have not been giving Latin American cuisine the love it deserves ๐Ÿ’•. . Variedad Latina popped up across and down the street from the Kitchener Market. Itโ€™s a neat space ran by a really friendly family. They walked us through the menu and out of everything we tried, our favourite is the ๐ŸŒฎ and the ๐Ÿ  . I liked that the aisles in the middle had some Latin American treats and ingredients so you can still enjoy the cuisine at home later. ๐Ÿ˜Š. โ€” Variedad Latina | 197 King Street East, Kitchener โ€” ๐ŸŸ Large deep fried fish, rice, and fresh cabbage and lime salad with 2 tortillas $18 + tax ๐ŸŒฎ4 Chicken Tacos $10 + tax ๐Ÿ” Corn Chicken Tamale $3 + tax ๐ŸŒฝ Loroco Flour and Cheese Pupusa $3 + tax โ€” #pupusas #pupusa #latinamerican #fish #friedfish #taco #tacos #spanishfood #dtk #dtklove #dtkfood #explorewr #kwawesome #kitchenerfoodies #kitchener #eatingforinsta #eeeeeats #yummy #dinner #519food
