Barsa Taberna

This time we tried something different for Karen’s birthday other than our regular routine Japanese or Chinese, Barsa Taberna – a Spanish restaurant with a little fusion twist, located right at St. Lawrence Market area in the heart of downtown Toronto.

All the dishes we had taste as good as they look, we found the food portion is a little small if you are sharing with 8 people LOL, another way of saying is, it’s more like a restaurant that if you are just looking to nibble 😛  Some dishes were a little too salty to my taste and some had too much herbs my friends said, service was very good, nice servers and a very cozy environment.  Overall, it is perfect for gatherings and to spend hours catching up with friends 🙂  2014 top 10 restaurants in Toronto, got to be good!!!

Sorry, I don’t have all the names of our orders, you might have to show these pictures to the server while you are there 😛

Marcus’ 7th Birthday 2014

Happy Birthday to You
Happy Birthday to You
Happy Birthday Dear Marcus
Happy Birthday to You.

Time flies lightning fast, Marcus is already 7 years old.  It was another big party at the grand parents house where could hold tons of people and balloons 😛  Not only that Marcus is getting bigger, so was the ice-cream cake which could easily feed 20+ people and the gifts of course, hehe.  It really was a day for the kids, they were mostly running around, yelling and screaming, not a good scene when you are not used to being around kids (talking to myself here…).  The party was supercharged with happiness and energy, our takeout food tasted even better because of that too (it’s true, hehe).  Oh oh, and we were so happy to see Cindy and her little baby girl as well, yay 何P!

Grace + Cindy’s Birthday party at Cheryl’s

Perfect timing at a perfect place, finally we could have a small little house party with only friends :-P, our lovely Cheryl provided her place to have a celebration for Grace’s birthday and Cindy’s coming soon.  The most funny part was, it was Grace that asked for a party herself at Cheryl’s and she even bought herself a cake LOL.  Big thanks to Cheryl for letting us mess up her place, Karen for making us a super yummy ox tail pot, Ruby for her tasty chicken wings and of course, the kids for not bothering us at all, and of course Grace for buying us a cake, not breaking anything LOL.  We really enjoyed the chatty night, something that we haven’t done for quite a while and hope that there will be more to come in the near future just like the old times 🙂

Wishing Grace and Cindy a Happy happy birthday and everyday will be better and better 🙂

SANTORINI Mediterranean Cuisine

I won’t say this is the best of it’s kind but surely it is different from what I would try normally, SANTORINI Mediterranean Cuisine, a restaurant that imported all their ingredients from Greek and serve using high-quality products such as Black Angus Beef and fresh seafood with a very inviting atmosphere. I am so glad we could try something out of our usual appetite for Simon’s Birthday this year 🙂  The restaurant is huge, very easy to spot, location is right on Bayview Ave. and John st., outside of Thornhill square.  Menu is nice and simple, I was told their fish dishes are the best but too bad I don’t eat fish but our appetizers were very impressive and so was my steak. yum yum 🙂

Labor Day weekend gathering 2014

Happy to spend a gathering day with my friends on Labor day weekend and of course we are soo glad that Cheryl would let us mess up her place 😛  And big thanks to Macy for spending the time preparing our sashimi for the night, it took a LONG time to prepare because I was there 😛  It wasn’t just a typical night with regular food, sashimi was awesome and our hotpot really top the night.  To be honest, it was my first time having hotpot with cheese and I am sure I keep that in mind because it tasted soo good.  And at the end, we had baked KITKAT, heard about it but never had, it was yummy yum yum good 🙂

Usually back in the days, we would have stayed and karaoke after, maybe I am getting old so were the others, we ended the day early but it was definitely a memorable night for us 🙂  Thanks Cheryl, Macy and Shu for making this happen, hope we’ll do it again soon 🙂
