Kimbap Cheonguk

This is my favourite place in all of North America to get kimbap. Whenever I need some comfort food, I will come here. It’s definitely a hole in the wall but the food they put out is amazing. On one of the snowiest days of the year, M and I ventured all the way out…

Mirai Sushi Restaurant

I went here for a belated birthday lunch with my coworkers. I’ve walked past this restaurant a couple times and I’ve always wondered how the food is. It’s a bit far from the office, but it’s loads better than the other Japanese options in the area! What I ate: Sweet and Spicy Chirashi Don (basically…

E Tea

What I ate: Stone Pot Laksa Soup Seafood ($10.80) I had some mad cravings for Laksa and the closest was E Tea. I ordered their Stone Pot Laksa. It came with a bowl of rice and because I went between 3 – 9 pm, it also came with a free drink. The Laksa was alright,…

Smokehouse Sandwich Co

I secretly love carbs, so when R suggested we check out this sandwich shop I was super excited. This restaurant is in the middle of nowhere (literally), but their was quite a fair bit of people coming in for lunch (even in the snow!) What I drank: Honey Ginger Lemon – Hot ($2.99) This was…

Gyoza Bar

After a particularly rough day at work a couple workers and I decided to go to Gyoza Bar for their Happy Hour to unwind. What I drank: Whisky + Ginger highball ($4.50) Standard drink. I definitely had more than one. What I ate: Hamachi Kama – sweet and sour soy yellowtail collar, bok choy ($5.00)…

Baghdad Cafe

I’ve never had Shawarma before, so A and I headed out to Baghdad Cafe on a snowy afternoon to try their Chicken Shawarma Platter! What we ate: Chicken Shawarma Platter with Baghdad Salad (Tomatoes, cucumbers and chickpeas), hummus on the side and spiced rice ($9.97) I thought that the chicken was really dry even though…

Catch 122

Went to Catch 122 for a catch up (geddit?) with M before he headed off for his great Japan adventure! We went during the Dine Out period, so they didn’t have their full Happy Hour menu. They only had a choice of Hummus, Smoked Olives, Frites, and Fried Chicken. What we ate: 2 orders of…

Bellaggio Wine Bar (Convention Centre Location)

My team had our Christmas team lunch here. The last time I was here was back in 2013, so I wanted to see what has changed since then. What I ate: Linguini Pescatore – sauteed prawns, smoked salmon and pacific cod tossed in our pesto white wine cream sauce ($23.95) Although it looks like this…

Earls Test Kitchen

Met up with R for another Happy Hour adventure! This time we decided to go to Earls Test Kitchen because it was close to my work. Their happy hour is from 3 pm – 6 pm. We got there around 5:45 pm and it was really busy! What we drank: Moscow Mule and Mojito ($7…

Bánh Mi Très Bon

After seeing so many social media posts on this quaint new restaurant I decided to visit with R after lunch! The interior is the nicest Vietnamese restaurant I’ve ever been to. I love the whole look and feel of the vintage pieces they have that showcase a bygone era of Vietnam. They did a pretty…
