Sunday in the City of Toronto

After the Eco-Expo at The Westin Harbour Castle, T and I decided to find some food to eat, and since we were soooo excited about what we heard and saw at The Malaysia booth, we felt for Malaysian food, but after calling the chosen restaurant and not getting anyone to speak to, we decided on Korean Grill House located at 214 Queen Street, across from MuchMusic....and boy were we happy we did!

Having never paid to cook our own food in a restaurant over an open pit located in the table itself, we were "Korean Grill Virgins" and we welcomed the opportunity to be, well, non-virgins of the Korean Grill BBQ experience.

Here are a few pics of our grilling....

Put something on me...let's eat!

Chicken, squid, and salmon

Chicken salmon, and squid

Pickled potatoes, spicy beansprouts, spicy/pickled cabbage, tofu , radish, and regular bean sprouts
After the Korean BBQ, we wanted something sweet, so we walked over to Cafe Crepe and had a most awesome nutella filled crepe with hazlenuts, topped with whipped creme....

Greedy, or just never satisfied.

Free defines a Glutton as:  A person who eats or consumes immoderate amounts of food and drink.

This is such a sad thing.  Case in point my Friday night with the ladies.  Last night we decided to get some drinks, and each get what each wanted.  Virginia, the ever eating T-Rex opts for 3 home burgers, back bacon, then chinese food where she ate so much she looked like she was about to give birth, thus hindering her from socializing and having a great evening.

Are you a glutton?

Yahooo, the food is here, lemme take a PIC!

*CLICK!!!* and people stare at me and look at me in such a way as if to say, "ooh you poor thing, just eat the food and gain some weight!"

First time at Spring Rolls at Bramalea City Ctr.

Upon entry a long hallway with traditional Asian masks beckons you through tall red doors. The ambiance is chic and relaxing. The scent of food lingers in the air, and is in no way over powering to the senses. As I follow the hostess to my table, I'm observing all those around me and what's on their plates, and it all looks divine.

I am looking forward to my miso soup, satay chicken mango salad and hargow dumplings. Oh, it's the lunch special for $13.99

First to arrive are the dumplings: *hark, remember to allow to cool first.* I did not hence my burnt mouth :)

Also, the most attractive Asian waiter named Jeffrey, tall, great smile and an amazing body :).


Shrimp dumplings are a must, I can't not have them.
So good....

Throw the pasta against the wall...

...and if it sticks then it's COOKED!

Yes, this was me today cooking pasta and tossing it against the wall praying it sticks thus signifying it's cooked!

How do you test or know when you're pasta is cooked?

Healthy snack

Long time fan of fruit, veggies, crackers etc. Yesterday at the supermarket I noticed okra, dried okra as a snack. So, I sampled 1, (remember 1 is tasting, 14 is a snack and you have to pay for it), lol, and delicious.
The other "strange fruit" I noticed and have never been privy to try is horned melon, and dragon fruit. I have yet to cut into either and try.
K.I.S.S. Keep It Simple Stupid :)

Ontario Food Trucks Location

Ontario Food Trucks

Hospital or Airplane Food...

...which is better?  Yea, I'm attempting to remain positive here, didn't want to ask, "which is worse?"

I refuse to take a pic of this horrid hospital food, meanwhile, I recently travelled on sunwing and this was the breakfast served.
Turkey sausage, scrambled eggs with cheese and a salsa, with tots *hash brown*
Now, naturally this isn't gourmet, but I was surprised at how good it tasted. Especially the turkey sausage.
