0109 Dessert & Chocolate, not too often that you find a dessert place which is in a Chinese community, mostly because we Asians don’t like sweets. Luckily enough we picked out this place and it turned out pretty good, most dessert are not too sweet like some restaurants, their stuffs are pretty light in a good way, thumbs up! I would definitely go back just because of their cream brulee but beware because you probably need to make a reservation ahead of time because the place is packed with people unless you go early.

It’s that time of year again, To celebrate Karen birthday, we picked ZAKKUSHI a Japanese izakaya located in downtown Toronto. I actually passed by this place a few times and never knew this place is actually quite nice and spacious. The atmosphere is bascially like the other izakaya, once you go in they would greet you loudly and food are mostly BBQ stuffs. In my opinion, food is not the greatest compare to some others but still a very good place to try, as long as the fun factor is there, everything should be good B-) We did make a reservation because we had quite a lot of people but even if you have only a couple, I think you should make one too because this place is also very packed most of the time.

It was the time of the year when we celebrate friends’ birthday over dinner, O Mei has always been a very solid Chinese restaurant for a perfect dinner. Did I mention seafood is O Mei’s specialty as specially Lobsters, 4 different dishes can be made out of a 6 pound lobsters, but of course, they also have a great varieties of food choices. I don’t think I need to say much about the food because everyone knows that it is one of the best Chinese restaurant in Toronto, tho we didn’t order a lot because we only had a few people but the choices we had was excellent as expected, eg. our super tasty lobster 😛 Oh, almost forgot to mention, they have very good Chinese style dessert too!!! The night was amazing, being with good friends over dinner is always enjoyable and at the end of the night, we left with a full stomach, big smile and joy 🙂
here is another O Mei post from before in case you want to see more 🙂

Yes, it was that time of the year again and thanks my good friends for a birthday dinner celebration for me and Ruby!!! Another great Japanese restaurant pick located in downtown Toronto again, KINGYO (金魚) 🙂 I have to say out of all Japanese restaurants I have tried, this one probably has the most comfortable seats out of all. Tho it says izakaya (Japanese grilled), they don’t really have a lot izakaya to choose from but what I like the most was, everything tasted not as salty as the other izakaya and their sushi/sashimi tasted very good as well as their presentation. I would recommend this place to friends especially if you are looking to find a izakaya restaurant which is not as noisy so you can actually chat with your friends, and not to mention, the place is actually quite large, hehe. If you are interested to try this place out, I believe you will have to make a reservation AND you will only have 2 hours of eat time or they WILL kick you out, just a friendly reminder 😛

As always, we would like to celebrate our friends birthdays early, if you are reading this, don’t forget to send greetings to Cheryl at the end of this week 😛 Cheryl’s pick of the night was chop Steakhouse bar, there are 8 across Canada, luckily the one in Toronto is located just around our airport, 801 Dixon Rd Toronto, Ontario M9W 1J5. First impression was, the look is very modern from the outside and the inside, people are extremely friendly and price is inexpensive compare to the similar kinds of restaurants. Our waitress was extremely friendly, quite surprised that she actually remembered all our names and service was excellent. I picked the crab cake, prime rib and apple pie from their summerlicious menu, everything was pretty good, crab cake was delicious, prime rib was cooked just right and apple pie was excellent. Unfortunately, I didn’t finish everything because the portion was a little big for me. Anyways, for a fine dinning restaurant, this one is really good especially if you want to get away from all those franchise in Toronto 🙂
