Loaded Pierogi

Loaded Pierogi located at 9-1/2 Church St in Toronto

I’ve been trying to choose more restaurants from Groupon‘s selection, so when Loaded Pierogi popped up as one of the restaurants that had a deal and I had never tried Loaded Pierogi before, I was ecstatic to get a chance to try this place out.   Continue reading

Trip to Alberta ~ December 2015

Back in Alberta for some business building and pleasure!

Hello!  Thanks for stopping by my blog. :)  On today’s post, I will be recounting the adventures I went on during December 2015 when I went to Edmonton, Alberta! :D

Right after Christmas dinner (also my uncle’s birthday dinner), I ensured that all my goodies were packed and my blog posts were completed to be scheduled while I was away Continue reading

Smash Kitchen & Bar located at 4261 Highway 7 in Markham

I was originally going to tack this review on to my original Smash Kitchen & Bar review, but then I remembered this was really part of an annual event that we have, so it deserves its own post.

Spanish-Style Steak with Smashed Potatoes from Chef’s Plate

Spanish-Style Steak with Smashed Potatoes

Woohoo!  I got to try another dish from Chef’s Plate!  Remember when I first blogged about them in August 2015 about the two meals that I received?  That was my first experience with DIY food delivery meals and since then, I have also tried the service from Fresh City Farms!  Because of the ingenious referral program from Chef’s Plate where you send a code #2freeplatesfromStenoodie to your friends and they get four free meals to try out Chef’s Plate, Continue reading

Winterlicious 2016: Rally Sports Bar & Smokehouse

Rally Sports Bar & Smokehouse located at 1660 O’Connor Dr in Toronto

Today is the second day of Winterlicious 2016 and was my first Winterlicious meal of the season (and only one this year).  Unfortunately, we found out that the first restaurant that we had intended to visit didn’t offer a prix fixe lunch on a weekend, so we ended up going to Rally Sports Bar & Smokehouse for Winterlicious lunch instead since close by.   Continue reading

Weekly Photo Challenge: Vibrant

Markham, Ontario. July 2010

I hope this photo of the vibrant summer sky of a warm, orangey, and flurried-cloud sunset brightens up the moods of those who suffer from SAD a.k.a the winter blues.  It must be hard to live in a place where there is no sunshine at all, so I really sympathize with those who live in such gloomy places.   Continue reading

O.M.G. Restaurant & Lounge

Located at 4033 Gordon Baker Road in North York

What an interesting name to this restaurant (which is really a Hong Kong style cafe)!  “O.M.G.” Restaurant & Lounge is definitely catchy and very creative because you wouldn’t think that this is just a casual cafe that offers the same selection of food as other Hong Kong style cafes.

O.M.G. Restaurant & Lounge is located on Gordon Baker Road in Scarborough Continue reading
