I came to know about after seeing a viral Insider Dessert video about them. They were labelled as a Toronto restaurant that was a “gold mine for purple desserts” as they served ube-inspired dishes. I’m a bit fascinated with the ube food trend having tried some ube cookies and cheesecake in Seattle. However, the trend hasn’t really caught on here in Vancouver. So when I visited Toronto last month, I thought it would be a fun adventure to visit Platito for some ube overload. Since my last visit, Platito has closed for an indefinite amount of time due to a fire in the neighbourhood.
