On a calm Friday night in a post-birthday celebration for my roommate, we decided to indulge ourselves in the high-quality taste of delicious desserts from no other place than Demetres. We entered the restaurant literally looking like this picture on the menu and we were so eager to get our orders taken.
Seyi and I both ordered different things however it wasn’t a problem deciding on what dessert to have as we knew exactly what we wanted. We both settled on customizing our own dessert. I got the Waffles with the Belgian Milk Chocolate sauce and chocolate buttons, Oreo Cookie Pieces with Whipped cream and Vanilla Ice cream.
Seyi, on the other hand, got the Crepes with Nutella sauce, brownies, Chocolate Ice cream and Whipped cream.
All the goodies came right on time! The layout of the building was colorful and so very pretty. The staff members were extra friendly and prompt with their work while the presentation of the food was clean and quite organized. Hmm the taste you already know amazinggggg!
The bill for both meals was approximately 34 dollars. So the next time you’re at Square One in Mississauga Ontario, walk into Demetres they are open from Sunday-Thursday 2PM-11PM Friday-Saturday 2PM-12AM and have a dessert maybe??
I will definitely recommend this to anyone who has a sweet tooth, it’s a 9/10 rating from me. Let me know if you have been to Demetres before and what you had there. Any dessert place recommendations too?

This whole week my roommates and I were craving our native meal from back home, Nigeria. Out of the various delicacies we have, we decided to satisfy our cravings with the famous Pounded Yam and Efo Riro Soup. This meal wasn’t difficult to prepare and took approximately 60mins.
3 packs of chopped fresh/frozen spinach or 1 large bunch of Kale leaves
If using fresh spinach/kale, place the spinach/kale in a bowl, add ½ teaspoon of salt, cover with boiling water and place a lid over the bowl. Allow it to rest for 15-20mins. Rinse out the spinach/kale and squeeze out all excess water.
Place a large pot over medium heat, add in the palm oil. Heat oil until a little smoky.
Add in the blended paste from part 1 and the leftover ingredients in part 2 apart from the spinach/kale. Cover and leave to simmer for 20-25 minutes (The palm oil will float to the top when the sauce is ready).
Add in the spinach/kale. Taste and adjust seasoning, leave to simmer for another 3- 5 more minutes.
The Efo Riro soup was paired with a pounded yam mix and a chilled glass of orange crush. A definite 10/10! I would recommend this meal to anyone. Next cooking session will be another soup which can also be paired with the pounded yam.
Do stay tuned!
Since this is a delicacy in my country, do you have any soups from your country that I could try?

In an attempt to live it up for the busy Halloween weekend and post-birthday celebration, a couple of my friends and I decided to treat our pallets to the expensive taste of Steak- and what better place to do so than The Keg
We started off the night with a flavorsome keg-size of Jacob’s Creek Moscato Wine. It had an amazing bubbly undertone to the mouth with the appearance of the wine being clear and a soft aroma to it.
Our starter was a tasty meal of Escargot which was stuffed with mushroom caps, garlic, and herbs.
For the main meal, I decided to have something quite different other than steak. I tried the Pistachio Crusted Salmon which was accompanied with garlic mashed potato, bacon sautéed Brussels sprouts, and maple butter. However, I asked for the garlic mashed potato to be substituted with regular fries because the simple girl in me just decided to come out again lol! For steak, my friends had the Tender New York striploin: The King of steaks which were cooked to medium as per request with a side of french fries.
The Keg is a great place for a casual get together and a quick night out with friends. My meal was actually a waiter’s suggestion so I wasn’t fully aware of the Pistachio on the salmon and this kind of put me off a little from the meal regardless the salmon had an amazing flavor to it. In general, the vibes gotten from the restaurant was chilled and casual- 8/10 would recommend. If you are in a mood for high dining vibes without the pressure definitely try this place out and tell me about your experiences.
If you have any other restaurants you will also recommend please leave a comment. Thank you 🌸
