輝煌閣 (Royal TeaHouse Dim Sum Specialist) with Aunties

Perfect timing to celebrate Christmas and New Year with a dim sum lunch with the aunties/Joe sir, the last time we had a gathering was over a month ago at 利家盛酒家.  If you remember, Joe sir got a terrible burn on his hands the last time we saw him and gladly they are perfectly fine now.  It was our Joe sir’s choice to go 輝煌閣 (Royal TeaHouse Dim Sum Specialist), located at the corner of Woodbine ave. and Applecreek.  Most dim sum places don’t last very long but this is one of the those restaurants that has survived for years, and I was right, everything tasted as good as years ago, some even better too.  The location is perfect because it is very close to my work place, and I go to the same plaza almost every week for lunch, just not dim sum but now, this is really a good choice for me and my colleagues to kill time haha.  Not to mention I have a 10% discount too, but lunch only 😛  If anyone who works in the area are interested, let me know and we can have lunch there 😀

BTW, What is Dim Sum in case you don’t know?

Dim sum refers to a style of Chinese food prepared as small bite-sized or individual portions of food traditionally served in small steamer baskets or on small plates. Dim sum is also well known for the unique way it is served in some restaurants, wherein fully cooked and ready-to-serve dim sum dishes are carted around the restaurant for customers to choose their orders while seated at their tables.

Eating dim sum at a restaurant is usually known in Cantonese as going to “drink tea” (yum cha, 飲茶), as tea is typically served with dim sum.

Joe Sir’s Birthday Dinner @ 利家盛酒家 2012

The birthday of our cooking class teacher Joseph Ho is near so we decided to bring him to a fantastic dinner just like last year.  Joe sir wasn’t able to drive because he got a terrible burn on his both hands from hot boiling frying oil preparing stuffs for a cooking class…  Glad he was OK but his hands were still wrapped up with bandages and stuff, so Christine picked him up to our dinner party gathering 😀  利家盛酒家 was our choice, which has been around in Toronto for sometime, located at 14th Ave. and Kennedy Ave.  A place where you HAVE to make a reservation or you will never get a chance to dine there if you walk in :-p  It was a fantastic restaurant choice aside from other restaurants we go to all the time, price was not bad really, about $40 a head with all the dishes we had, just look at those amazing food pictures below, yum yum…  If you are planning to have a big dinner with at least like 10 people, 利家盛酒家 is really a good place if you don’t want to spend too much, food quality is really not bad either but don’t forget to call to make a reservation tho :-p  anyways, too bad they don’t have a website but luckily, I have their no. 905.475.2822

Well, happy birthday Joe sir and wish his hands will get well soon 😀

Lunch with the Aunties @黃金閣 again

This Friday was a cooking class day off in between the previous and coming semesters, so most of the aunties and our teacher Joseph were available to have lunch together.  I figured 黃金閣 would be a good place since they can really keep up the quality and it is close to mostly everyone.  I am sure there will be more lunch gathering like this in the coming future, most of us didn’t apply cooking class because we were told to let more new students to join instead of us dominating it.  Anyhow, it was a very fun afternoon, and the Chinese New Year is coming in about 2 weeks, we will probably have a gathering dinner with most of us soon, so stay tuned :p

P.S.  the last 2 pictures are rare dishes, not all Chinese restaurant has it fyi 😀

Noodles Dinner and Christine’s (班長) Birthday

Tonight, I was invited to Queenie’s house for her specialty noodles dinner again and it happened to be Christine’s (班長) birthday as well.  I was soo glad to be there, one of the biggest reason was I get to see her lovely cats 毛毛, 波波 & 豆豆, yay!!!  I went there right after work because I knew the night would be soo fun with the aunties and seriously, hanging out with them really learn a lot about cooking and lots of other stuffs :p  Anyways, the place was packed with fun and joy, the food was super wonderful as always, really thx Queenie for putting this together and spending hours to get everything ready, oh, not to mention she made a birthday cake for Christine as well 🙂  Enough with the talk, lets see some pictures 😀

Lunch with the Aunties @黃金閣

As most of the people know I have been pretty sick for more than a week now but the flu is slowly going away thank god.  Usually I am always the person to organize gatherings but because I had been sick, Corolla took over this time for Paulina’s birthday gathering.  They really didn’t expect me to show up since I had to work on Thursdays but I did to surprise them all.  黃金閣 is a place we always go, food/dimsum is always good, thumbs up for everything :p, just look at the picture below and you would know what I mean :p plus location is perfect for all of us as well.  Oh, don’t forget to take a look at Paulina’s new scarf made by Corolla and look at how happy she was in those pictures hehe.

*All pictures were taken using my new Sony NEX 5N without editing.
