Night It Up! Blog
With so many booths at Night It Up!, trying to decide what to buy is a really hard thing to do since there’s just so many vendors! Here are some ideas for food as well as a a preview of what we have from some of our vendors!
Fantastic is selling the popular Hainan Noodles. They are made with the thinnest rice noodles with dozens of special condiments. People generally have fried peanuts, roasted sesames, bean sprouts, shredded meat, bamboo shoots and a pickled cabbage mix with their rice noodles. Local Hainan people eat this noodle for all their festivals and celebrations since they see the noodle as a symbol against superstition and living long happy lives. It’s actually even more popular than Hainan chicken and has more than 300 years of history!
K3 El Perro Heffe
Craving food? Why not swing by El Perro Heffe for some Octopus El Diablo Tacos that are made with cilantro and Benito Flake.
D4 Cup Cup Dessert
Might as well make a stop for some drinks and desert at Cup Cup Dessert! Thirsty? Try out their Golden Supreme or Limon Aiyu Soda drinks. If you’re hungry, have some of their ChocoPig or Tic Tac Egg to eat!
F3 – Okonomiyaki On Fire
Where to go for flavorful ramen or who has the best sashimi are oft-debated topics on the Toronto area, but another Japanese dish that’s well-represented in the area and deserves attention is okonomiyaki (お好み焼き), a savory pancake like item that’s generally made with flour, water, and cabbage, plus any requested add-ins.
Okonomiyaki, which means “as you like it, grilled,” are robust cabbage pancakes made with add-ins such as shrimp, squid, vegetables, or bacon. Cooked okonomiyaki is topped with ingredients that include secrete made okonomi-yaki sauce, Japanese mayonnaise, aonori (seaweed flakes) and katsuobushi (bonito flakes).
