Right across from the L'84° Fiera Internazionale del Tartufo Bianco d'Alba is Dario's Gelateria Italiana.  They were offering a special flavor.  What else but Tartufo!!
Of course I had to stop in to delight my senses! We tried one cup first to make sure the gelato has the flavor and essence of truffle.
The Tartufo gelato was €3 and the lady scooped 3 generous scoops.  At first bite, you can taste the richness of the truffle flavor.  Each bite was delightful.  Ms. Lin Guide tasted honey and I felt like there might be a dab of olive oil to the texture.
I'm still hunting for chocolate with real truffles inside and not just shaped like one.  I'll eat anything with white truffles! :)

Buon Appetito!

The food is always not bad a decent price at Sushi Wazen.  Today the service was very very slow, but always friendly.  I needed more sushi apparently before I leave for my European vacation tomorrow morning! :)

Sushi Dinner 
Crispy Yellowtail - seared yellowtail on crispy rice
Salmon Wazen style - kelp on top

Uni Wazen style - yuzu and sea salt

What do you do after a long flight and a 4 hr lay over?  Find something to eat and relax! I looked around and the selections are very very limited in Gate E of the Toronto Pearson Airport.  

After a walk around, I decided I wanted to eat something made fresh and hot so I went for the True Burger Co. Bar & Grill.  Guess how much a combo is?  For a burger, fries, and drink it is $15! I upgraded to make it poutine style since I'm in Canada and the total was $20.   Swoon!!
My McDonalds breakfast was maybe 1/3 the price.  Well, what can you do at an airport?  The burger was not bad and loaded with mayo, mustard, and ketchup.  This could be I was starving as well.
The fries poutine style was very interesting.  I ordered it not knowing what to expect.  The board said bacon but the add on was just gravy and cheese curd.  Not sure if I was swindled or this is the add on.  The good thing was some of the curd melted and that was jackpot! 

All in all it was fine for a quick bite, but cost me a pretty penny!
