Descendant Detroit Style Pizza

Tired of all the Neapolitan thin crust pizza and was desperate to find a more comforting and satisfying pizza?! Thanks to Descendent Detroit Style Pizza  (@DescendantPizza), our cravings are satisfied.
Love the place as soon as I enter, just look at that colorful dripping walls with all those hidden patterns. The place is rather small and can get pretty hot with the pizza oven from the open kitchen but not too smelly that you would want to avoid.

Sausage & Peppers $19 Small
~ sauce, smoked cheese blend, Nduja (under the cheese), Calabrian chilis, 
Sweetie Drop Peruvian Peppers
Love the caramelized crispy crust w/ the fluffy spongy interior! Love this one which was sweet tart spicy and savoury all at the same time. Love the amount of ingredients on it with just the perfect amount of sauce, cheese and toppings.

North Poke [Seafood / Hawaiian]

Poke have been all the rage in Toronto this year with shop after shop popping up and I finally made it to one.... We decided on North Poke (@northpokeTO) in Kensington Market which set themselves apart from the pack by being traditional,

A superbly healthy and trendy Hawaiian staple, what's not to like?! They serve Hawaiian style poke instead of the more common California style at most of the other shops popping up in Toronto. The Hawaiian style are marinated at least a few hours whereas the California style get sauced right before just like you would a salad. 

All of their poke bowl comes in snack, regular and large sizes. We ordered 3 snack size for $15 to tried since we can't decide which one to pick. 

You can choose between white rice, brown rice and salad; I personally would definitely recommend the rice since there's barely any any salad at the bottom.
