HANSIK Korean Restaurant

Korean BBQ, one of my most favorite food in this whole wide world and thanks to Shu and Cheryl for finding this amazing restaurant!!!  In a location that I would have never thought of, right on Finch Ave. and Dufferin, in between warehouses and shops there is HANSIK Korean Restaurant (according to their website, hansik means Korean food).  A smoke free BBQ restaurant which actually let you walk out from your dinner without smelling like a BBQ.  Inside was huge, which you couldn’t really tell from looking at the front door, inside was very modern Korean style and the servers were soo polite, just didn’t expect they were all guys instead of the traditional female servers.  Food was fantastic, everything was soo fresh and all the meat was not too salty like the other ones I have tried.  Price wise is really good compare to other Korean restaurants in other areas, overall experience was excellent!!!

If you have a few friends and want to spend a good time/food over dinner, this is a very nice pick if you don’t mind the distance, I would definitely go back and try more of their other stuffs on their menu, YUM YUM!!!

Of course, thanks to Cheryl, Ruby, Jason, Vivian and Shu for this amazing birthday dinner, amazing choice.  AND I have to say, Happy Birthday to Ruby as well because hers is only 2 weeks away from mine 🙂  Thanks guys!!!

響 HIBIKI Japanese Cuisine

Thanks Shu for helping me to get something from TaoBao, so I had to treat her somewhere for a nice dinner, of course thanks the amazing Cheryl came up with this idea 🙂  Not to mention, I also bumped into an old friends from almost 20 years ago ar 文 and turned out he is the brother of Becky LOL, what a small world 😛

Who would have thought on a busy street highway 7, right in between Warden and Kennedy Unionville, there is a new restaurant called 響 HIBIKI Japanese Cuisine (4450 Highway 7 East).  The spacious interior is amazing with the tree beams design, kindly waiters give you a cozy feeling and top quality sashimi and IZAKAYA dishes taste as well as they looks.  Price wise it’s not as steep as some other places, $30-50 per, really perfect for occasions like birthdays or gatherings.  I might go and try their lunch too because I heard they have some good specials, will see 🙂  Try it yourself, I can’t promise anything but I walked out as a happy customer, just look at the pictures below and you’ll know what I mean, hehe.

White Orchid – SouthEast Asian Cuisine (蘭花軒)

To celebrate Shu’s birthday early, we decided it to try something a little different. With a total of 14 people Cheryl found us a private kitchen (私房菜), White Orchid – SouthEast Asian Cuisine (蘭花軒) located on 360 Highway 7 east., unit 5, Richmond Hill. Causal lunch by day and fine dining/causal by night, this is really a unique place.  Price wise is not that bad to start with, just take a look at the pictures of all the dishes we ordered below, each of us had to pay $40, not bad 🙂  Food was great, it’s a little different from a lot of other Chinese restaurants because of it’s kind and style.  A must try if you are in Richmond Hill, one thing I should mention tho, the place is tiny, if you want a big dinner with friends, you better call to make a reservation hehe

Millie Creperie

Another fantastic find in downtown, Millie Creperie, located in Kensington  Market area, 161 Baldwin Street (on the other side of Spadina Ave. – even if you are familiar with the area, you might still not notice about this place), a tiny little store that has amazingly good tasting Japanese dessert.  A place soo small that they only have a few seats inside, not a lot of varieties but the smell of crepe just makes you want to stay for a bit longer, I say definitely a place to stop by if you are in the area.  Think about a simple Green Tea Parfait made me wish they were in uptown so I could taste their ice-cream everyday 😛  One thing you keep in mind tho, they close at 8:30, so now you know why I wished it was in uptown?  hehe

SAKE + hotpot gathering

As you all know, we would put together small gatherings from time to time, our friend Cheryl came up with an events, a SAKE + hotpot gathering.  The highlight of the night was our SAKE which costs around $150, and of course we had to have something to eat, so she decided to put together a hotpot dinner as well, a very special sukiyaki hotpot 🙂  Of course food tasted amazingly good, so was the SAKE 😉  Didn’t really take a lot of pictures because I was too busy eating, hehe.  Sadly for our host, the smell of our hotpots was everywhere, guess she had to sleep with the smell for a few days 😛  but it was a true blessing to see some of our friends we hadn’t seen for a while, great catching up and all, yay!!!  Now it’s time to plan for our next gathering, should be huge because X’mas is coming up 😛

P.S.  To host something like this takes hours of preparation, not to mention Cheryl had to go to 4 different supermarkets to get all the food too.  So big thank you 🙂
