SONG Cook’s

Anita and her daughter came back to Toronto for a short visit, so we decided to call our long lost friend Cindy to join us for a small gathering dinner at SONG Cook’s located on Yonge and Steeles W, one of my favorite kind of restaurant, Korean!  Yay!!!  Most people know, I love spicy food, so I couldn’t wait to try this place out 😛  Entrance looks very unique, inside is spacious and you also get to choose to sit at the regular tables and chairs side or tatami (a type of mat used as a flooring material in traditional Japanese-style rooms)

Well, this is spicy food, so I am going to say everything taste delicious right off my head even I haven’t put anything into my mouth HAHA.  But really, everything tasted extremely good, noodles (JengBan JaJang) was chewie, just the way I like it, pork ribs dish (MuGunji Pork Ribs) tasted amazing, the pig foot (Five Spices Jokbai) was totally different from anything I have tried and tons more…  I love this place, not only because of the yummy food, also because of this place DOESN’T smell 🙂  Definitely have to try this place if you are craving Korean 😛

BIG BBQ 2014

Is it a tradition or not?  A BIG BBQ at Cheryl’s house, this year we had 30+ people attended, a little less than last year but still pretty big 🙂  I missed a few previous parties so I was really looking forward to see my friends that I haven’t seen for a long time.  One special guest, Anita and her daughter came back from Hong Kong for a short visit.

I remember back in the days, we used to drink (alcohol) like crazy but we are not in our 20s now, so we didn’t drink much this time, hehe  The weather was super nice, we actually had concerns that it might rain but it didn’t, tons of food, lots of catching up with each others and of course it was a total madness with the kids playing bubbles 😛  At the end of the night, our stomachs were filled, some even got take out because there was just soo much food left, I couldn’t even describe the level of fun we had, just take a look at the smile/laugh in my pictures.  Huge thanks to Auntie for preparing everything and of course Cheryl for making this to happen 🙂  Hopefully we can have another party like this on the next weekend, hehe

Little gathering Dinner at Karen’s new house :D

Karen decided to have a little gathering dinner at her new house with just a few of us before Anita goes back to Hong Kong on coming Monday.  Of course this was the perfect time to make a cake for Anita as my promised hehe.  Many many thanks to Cheryl as well for getting those awesome Japanese food and oysters from a few places and they did taste amazing 😀  Over all, I guess the kids were the happiest because they had a whole living room of Marcus’s toys to play with.

As usual, there are tons more pictures on my facebook link here http://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.10150343195250211.394070.689775210&l=69723af19c&type=1

INATEI Japanese Cuisine (稻亭日本料理)

While Anita is still in Toronto, we decided to have a nice dinner with her somewhere and hopefully we could surprise her with something amazing, which we did :p  INATEI Japanese Cuisine (稻亭日本料理) is located on 9021 Leslie Street, Unit 7 & 8, Richmond Hill (Hwy 7 & Leslie).  This is one of those Japanese restaurants that I thought it would be crappy/too expensive but you know what?  It turned out that it is as good as the other super high quality Japanese restaurants.  As most people know, what to look for in a Japanese restaurant is freshness and presentation and they have both 😀  With that said, if you are looking for a Japanese restaurant in Richmond Hill, you should definitely give it a try 😀

Civic Holiday weekend BBQ

Thank god the weather wasn’t extremely hot this weekend, at least there was wind and some clouds. We were hoping to have a BBQ gathering before Anita leaves Toronto before her long vacation ends in about 3 weeks.   The kids (Anita’s daughter Ella, her cousin Evy, Karen’s son Marcus and Grace’s daughter Emily) really had a blast because they had an awesome time playing water, if the pool was bigger, I would have jumped in really :p  And of course, many thx to Karen for all the yummy food plus she spent the whole afternoon cooking for us 😀
