So, I have been living in Toronto for the last four months - it's almost the longest I've ever been out of my country of birth, Malaysia. Do I miss "home"? Yes, but only for one reason other than family members.
The food. Malaysian food.
When it comes to food, you sure can take a girl out of Malaysia but you can never take Malaysia out of a girl.
People will be very quick to say I'm bias towards Malaysian food but really, anyone who has been to Malaysia WILL tell you about the food and how glorious it is. My family hails from a little island in Malaysia called Penang which is known for its awesome, mouth-watering food.
I've been craving for Malaysian food really badly, for a few weeks now. You see, I've only learnt to cook from my mother-in-law,post marriage, so naturally, I can only cook up Indian dishes (my husband is from India) and I have zero idea on whipping up Malaysian food. Yeah, I could learn a thing or two from YouTube, you would say, but I'm also good at failing badly in the kitchen.
So.... my husband and I thought it's a better idea to keep the kitchen unburnt and instead head over to a Malaysian restaurant called Soos in Ossington Ave.
Soos prides themselves in serving authentic modern interpretations of Malaysian street food.
Upon arriving at the little entrance to a place that smells like glorious food, we were asked to wait for 2 minutes to be seated.
