For Those Beef Brisket Lovers

I don't know about you, but I love beef brisket. If you haven't tried it, it's worth a try. Some places get it right and others miss the mark. Recently, I went to "Tao Canteen", it is on Markham Rd. and Castlemore Avenue. It is a bit on the pricier side but its lunch specials are super affordable. I only went here for there satay beef brisket and was not disappointed. Their beef brisket is perfectly flavorful and their briskets…

Niagara Falls – Contd

There is so much to do in Niagara besides the falls. To be honest, you can stare at the falls for only so long; majority of your time will be spent at all the attractions and rides; oh and not to the mention the casino! (If you are that gambling type) Besides the falls we went to Ripley's 4D theatre; it is a 3D movie experience along with moving seats and real water effects. They really need to start making…

Visit to the Great Falls

This long weekend, I got the chance to go to Niagara Falls. It is just one of those places that you must visit if you come to or live in Canada. The falls are a breathtaking view, and a great escape from everyday working life. We started off our day with breakfast in a small diner. We ordered the usual eggs and sausages along with the unconventional fish & chips, early in the morning. It has to be good for…

Fin Izakaya – Japanese Authentic Cuisine

When you take lunch during work, you most likely want fast service; but it is a bonus to add to that, if it's also authentic and cheap food. That is exactly what I get, every time I go to Fin Izakaya in Toronto. This is one of my favorite authentic Japanese restaurant. You get greeted by all the front end staff and chefs, once you walk in, each time. It is a lively and fun environment with great cheap menu and…

Roll Play Cafe – For those game nights

Taboo, Connect4, Monopoly, Clue and many more board/card games that I don't even know how to play, are all here in Roll Play Café. Pretty neat place for those bonding nights with friends or family. Located around Yonge & Dundas, it is right in the heart of Downtown, Toronto. It was my first time here, and I got 5 dollars cash, just to fill out a survey! Now, this is probably just because they are trying to gather their demographic…

Hakka Cuisine Toronto

Another one of my regulars is Tangerine Asian Cuisine, it provides a variety of Hakka dishes from really spicy to mild flavors, and to add to that, it is also an all halal restaurant, for those who prefer that. It is located on Markham and Ellesmere in Scarborough. My usual favorite dish here is there mango chicken, this weekend in addition to that, I also tried their shrimp and peanut dish. Really good flavors, although, I would have preferred roasted…

Random Chinese Diner Finds

This diner is located around Midland and Sheppard in Scarborough. I won't try to say what the name of this restaurant is (Yes, I am not Chinese), but I was told it says "Beuco" which means cousin in Cantonese. I don't think that is the full name of the diner, but part of it does incorporate the word cousin in it. I have been to this place several times before and I am never disappointed. Most of the times I…

Spring is officially here; now time for the weather to comply

[caption id="attachment_13" align="alignnone" width="1024"] Rouge Beach Park Scarborough (2013)[/caption] If you are in Toronto, then you have definitely had a taste of this forever winter that is upon us from late last year. If you are within GTA, then the big power outage from the winter storm; should also sound familiar. Spring officially began two days ago on March 20th, and I for one, am ready to shed all those layers of jackets, go out for bike rides, long walks, beaches, festivals, street vendors and  FOOD TRUCKS! Nothing tastes more…
