Thai One On

Yes another Thai place again.

Been eating a lot of Thai food and yet still not sick of it. This time I went to Thai One On. I've been to this restaurant twice so far so this post will be a combination of both visits.

My first trip was with Sue and Sand.

First off is the basil chicken with veggies. This was delish and very flavorful.

Pi Tom's

Since it was a beautiful sunny day we decided to sit in the patio at Pi-Tom's.

For starters we had the skewered chicken satay. The flavor was there but the chicken could've been more juicy and moist.

Thai Fay

Thai Fay is suppose to serve up some authentic Thai cuisine. The food was just mediocre to me.

Sizzling satay beef. I don't think you can go wrong with any sizzling dish. This was the best dish out of all 3. It had flavor and definitely did not lack in seasoning.

Cafe En Passant

Surprisingly, it was pretty good for a French restaurant in Richmond Hill. The last French restaurant I went to was Scaramouche and it was spectacular.

Cafe En Passant is definitely not comparable to Scaramouche nevertheless, it was still tasty.

It's a small restaurant but had a nice romantic feel to it. Perfect for a date or in this case, dinner with a couple of good friends.

The place was empty when we arrived. I like having the whole place to ourselves so we can be as loud as we want. Not like that ever stopped me before hehe.

First off here is the crepe St. Jacques with bay scallops, baby shrimp covered in a creamy rose wine sauce. I absolutely loved this dish. It was scrumptious. They definitely did not skimp out on the seafood. Every bite was filled with shrimps and scallops.

I went to Glow to celebrate a friend's birthday. The place looks so pretty inside.

We opted for the patio since it was gorgeous that day and look at the sofas they were just screaming for me to sit on them. It was so comfy and I love my comfy seats.

Perfect Dim Sum

Think this is the cheapest dim sum I have ever had.

My friend took me to Perfect one day claiming the food was good and cheap. Cheap and good food I was sold.

When we arrived the place was jammed packed. I hate lining up so we decided to leave. When we returned a half hour later there was no line up yayyy.

I love my siu mai so we had 2 orders of this. Mmmmmm yummy in my tummy.

ABC Bakery

Another great cheap eat.

ABC Bakery serves up some simple yummy Asian fare at reasonably cheap prices. The portions are humongous and taste wise deeeelicious. The meal we had here can probably feed a family of 4 but us being the pigs we were we gobbled everything up^_^

Here was the satay beef rice noodles. Classic dish you just can never go wrong ordering. Always hits the spot.

Brunch @ School...EPIC FAIL!!!

My last trip at School was mediocre. Not so good but not so bad either.

This time I returned for brunch and OMG what an EPIC FAIL!!!

Thank god Bonnie was there first. If it wasn't for her we wouldn't have gotten a table. But when I arrived I noticed a lot of empty tables. WTH!!! Why the holdup then? Guess they are the type of resto where they make people wait just so that it appears to be busy. Already I wasn't too pleased.

I had my eye on the macadamia banana pancakes but was told that they didn't have any bananas so any dishes with the fruit would not be available. Once again not thrilled here. This is the 2nd time that I came and couldn't get the dish I wanted due to lack of ingredients.

WARNING: The pictures may appear mouthwatering but believe me did not taste as great as it looked.

We were waiting for quite some time for our meal so our waitress gave us complimentary muffins on the house. That made me feel a bit happier since I was starving.

$6.25 for 2 Sandwiches...What a Deal!!!

Here is a quick post.

A friend told me about a shawarma place in Scarborough so one day we decided to head there for lunch.

Family Shawarma is a small resto which seats about 16 people or so. When we arrived there was a long lineup.

I was drooling over the meat here. Just look at it. It was so juicy looking. Om nom nom.

Vi Vetha

One Sunday morning my friend Jane took me to one of her fave brunch spots.

Vi Vetha was definitely a hidden gem. I never heard of this place before but by the end of the meal it was definitely on my list of faves as well.

It's a small little restaurant along Yonge just a block North of Lawrence.

I had my eye on the french toast and egg benny and a few other stuff. I just couldn't decide. I wanted it all. Finally we settled on two dishes.

Here was the potato pancake platter with smoked salmon, 2 eggs garnished with apple, sour cream and capers. It was yummy.

Insomnia Tweetup

Finally organized my very first tweetup yayy^_^

I heard several good reviews about Insomnia so I decided to host my first tweetup there.

Since there were some people I knew as well as some new faces thought it would be fun to create a seating chart. Nobody minded about the seating except for one particular person. (You know who you are missy:P) But it's ok since she was just kidding, hopefully.

$15.99 for Afternoon Tea...Awesome^_^

Last time I came to Ruelo was for desserts and that's when I discovered the strawberry yuzu. Mmmmm. My very first trip was for the macarons. Every trip so far has been a great experience. This time I returned for their afternoon tea.

The afternoon tea is available everyday from 12pm - 6pm. No reservations required. However, it is a tiny space so I would recommend calling ahead to see if there is any seating available. Think there are around 6 tables plus seating by the counter.

Me and Sue dropped by on a Saturday afternoon round 3pm or so. The place was empty when we arrived however, after we were seated then people started bustling in. Thank god we came earlier otherwise we wouldn't have had a table.

Easy Pot Roast

Felt like doing a sleepover at my friend's place so we decided to make pot roast for dinner.
