Yet, another Japanese restaurant located in J-Town again, 丹羽亭 NIWATEI, like the previous J-Town restaurants I posted, this place is also a well known Ramen place in uptown. OK OK, call me a noob like the other posts, it was my first time again hehe, not a lot of choices but it seems like a pretty cool place. Compare to other Chinese owned Japanese Ramen, of course this is way way better, but I was told the ones in downtown are a lot better, well, I guess I will just have to wait and see because I am not a Ramen person and this one taste pretty good already 😛 For the price around $10, it will fill you up pretty good with their wonderful soup base and noodles. Oh oh, I almost forgot to mention, they do not do takeouts FYI

一品魚湯 (Fish Shop Supreme) is located at 633 Silver Star Blvd. Unit#125 Scarborough (Kennedy and Steeles) is a Chinese noodles specialist restaurant which was opened not long ago. Some people would run away when they hear the name “fish” because not everyone like the taste or smell of it, including me but I was told there is no MSG on everything they have, so I got try it out. When I first entered, I totally fell in love with the design of the interior, really didn’t expect a Chinese restaurant would put that much afford for such a pretty design nowadays 😛 Anyways, the menu was very simple, you can order whatever combination you want, different soup base, noodles and toppings and of course, I ordered the fish soup base (魚湯) to try it out. As it turned out, I finished the whole bowl of noodles and soup, my one of my friends almost licked his bowl clean too, so yeah, it was that good really 😛 Price wise, umm… it’s a little more than other places ($10ish) but it was well worth it. They do have a dinner menu too so I am hoping I will try it out someday too if I have a chance but so far, its a thumbs up for me 😀

Another good Chinese restaurant I found which I don’t think people would actually notice this restaurant even when they walk by it. Its called 玲龍風味 (Ling Long Legend), a Northern Chinese style restaurant located right along the south entrance of First Markham Place. Tho we have tried only 3 dishes, they were very satisfying good, I am sure I will go again with more people so I could try more different dishes next time. And don’t miss out their specialty noodles because they would make it right in front of you :p

It was a total honor to be invited to Oliver and Jennifer’s Wedding. Knew Oliver about 10 months ago when I got into his company, finally got a chance to meet Jennifer a few weeks ago and they are both very cool people 😀 I did help out to do some of the artwork for the wedding and I realized it was probably one of the biggest wedding I had ever seen when I was making their table list :p Not to mention a formal lunch which was also a first for me as well 😀 Overall, it was a fun morning/afternoon, got a very rare chance meeting up with a few people that are related to work, a true blessing to see a new couple was born and good food :p Anyways, here are some of the highlights snapshots.

This was really a big day for our company because it was our first time having Christmas Lunch out side of our office. Instead of eating in an intense environment (office), Mandarin Buffet on Woodbine ave. was our number one choice, it was close to the office and newly renovated :p I am so glad we went because they have all kinds of food that fits our colleague’s different culture, most of the food is pretty good and the smile on my colleagues faces which I don’t see very often in the office, priceless. As most of my friends know, I don’t go to buffets very often, top reason is I don’t eat much but this was actually pretty good, I ate quite a lot especially those mussels with black bean sauce, hehe :p Anyways, time to take a look at my colleague stuff their faces and some pictures of our Christmas presents lucky draw after we headed back to the office. Enjoy!
