Petit Potato

Petit Potato is a fairly new Japanese-Taiwanese restaurant located in North York at Finch Ave. E. and Leslie St . They are under the same management team as Congee Queen. What I like about Petit Potato is that their menu has a little something for everyone. Popcorn chicken? Herbal soups? Ramen? Sizzling hot plates? Bibimbap? Omurice? Desserts? Petit Potato’s got it all! The restaurant is spacious and has picnic table style seating, a number of small booths as well as larger booths.

I was invited to a media tasting event a couple weeks ago and would like to share my experience and honest opinion here.DSC01106_Fotor.jpgThe Special French Honey Golden Toast series is their signature dessert! Pictured above is the Mango Special Golden Toast ($14.99) and is filled with large cubes of toast, topped with vanilla ice cream, and looks like a huge mountain. I would recommend sharing this amongst 3-5 people since this is a really large dessert.

Chicken Wings with Yuzu Sauce ($7.99). Mmmm the zesty sauce is delicious and gives these wings a perfect balance. This was my favourite appetizer!DSC01070_Fotor.jpg
Of course there is Popcorn Chicken ($7.75) here too as with most Taiwanese cafes. I thought the popcorn chicken is quite dry and so did my fellow food bloggers at my table. I preferred the Chicken Wings a lot more.DSC01057_Fotor.jpg
Shrimp and Crabmeat Salad ($8.99) comes with a side of sesame dressing which is very delicious and is my favourite kind of dressing. Sesame dressing in salads is quite common in Japan and I found that it goes very well with the ingredients in this salad. DSC01060_Fotor.jpgIce Honey Chrysanthemum & Rose Tea ($6.99) looks very pretty! I found this quite refreshing. I’m not a big fan of rose flavored anything but the rose taste wasn’t too overpowering. The Taro Milk Tea ($4.99) is pretty standard and you can’t go wrong with ordering this!DSC01050_Fotor.jpg
Dishes on the teppan menu is served on a sizzling hot plate! Tip: be sure to mix it all up before it starts burning. Smoked Duck Breast Special Teppan Cream Pasta ($11.75) was another dish I enjoyed. I really liked the smokiness. For any of the pasta teppan dishes, there is a choice of black pepper sauce, cream sauce, or tomato sauce.DSC01084_Fotor.jpg
Slice Beef Special Teppan Pepper Rice ($9.99) is another one from their teppan menu. Everything was quite tasty together when mixed.

Eel Omurice with Teriyaki Sauce ($12.99). How perfect does this look? If you didn’t know, omurice is a popular Japanese dish, consisting of rice and omelette as the name suggests. The egg was fluffy and overall the dish was good.DSC01024_Fotor.jpg
Slice Pork Ramen ($10.95) was my favourite entree and many of the bloggers thought so as well! The pork bone soup tasted creamy and full of flavour. Noodles are chewy and cooked perfectly. Mmmm…DSC01118_Fotor2.jpg
Mango Pancake ($7.99) has a delicious mango filling in the core, surrounded by whipped cream, and wrapped in a thin layer of pancake. They look like little fluffy pillows! I really enjoyed the mango filling and the outer layer pancake but in my opinion, there was too much whipped cream in between. I wish there was more of the mango filling!
DSC01099_Fotor.jpgOreo Special Golden Toast ($12.99) is the newest addition to the Special French Honey Golden Toast Series. Look at that beauty!! If you love oreos and sweets, this is definitely for you.
DSC01116_Fotor_Fotor.jpgMixed Fruit Sago ($5.99) really was a great dessert to end the meal. I love fruits and I am all for refreshing desserts such as this one!

Although I’ve only mentioned a few of the desserts in this post, there is in fact an extensive dessert section on Petit Potato’s menu – stewed pudding, ice cream, waffles, sago mix, sweet dumplings, snowflake (flavoured shaved ice with milk), etc. You name it! I’m excited to come back here just for a dessert and drinks kind of night.DSC01119_Fotor.jpg
I would like to thank Patrick (@feedmyphone on Instagram) for inviting me to this delicious 10 course media tasting event! I was so happy to be able to try so many tasty dishes that evening.

I also enjoyed the cleanliness and modern atmosphere here and I was pleasantly surprised at the wide variety on the menu. A lot of Taiwanese and Japanese restaurants specialize in certain types of dishes and it is hard to accommodate everyone when you’re with a group of friends or family. I would recommend this place since there is something that will satisfy everyone’s taste. Petit Potato is like a restaurant, cafe, dessert shop, bubble tea shop, all in one 🙂
