Summerlicious 2015 Restaurant #3: John & Sons Oyster House

Located at 1 Balmoral Avenue in Toronto

Summerlicious 2015 has ended for this season!  Surprisingly, this season was the first one where I attended so few Summerlicious restaurants (my maximum had been 9 in one season).  The reason for few Summerlicious ’15 attendance is due to a lot more foodie complimentary invitations that filled up my schedule and a general apathy at visiting Summerlicious restaurants this summer (caused by the first reason).  Haha.  Anyway, let’s see how my third Summerlicious restaurant went, shall we? :)   Continue reading

New Menu & Cocktails at The Libertine!

Located at 1307 Dundas Street West in Toronto

I was so impressed with The Libertine!  The Libertine has been newly acquired by a new owner and I was invited there with a friend to try out their new menu of drinks and food.  The Libertine is no longer a “snack-lounge” on Dundas Street West by Dufferin but it is a restaurant turned bar that should prove very popular for after work hours, group get-togethers, hang-outs, and more.   Continue reading

Ramen Raijin with Zulu & Banh

Located at 3 Gerrard Street East in Toronto

The ramen-hoping duo, Zulu & Banh, invited me to one of their famed ramen tours.  They have been to over 20 ramen houses around Toronto and the GTA, looking for the best Japanese ramen noodles, toppings, and soup base.  I was really excited to try out Ramen Raijin with them and our friends since it was my first time to this ramen house and I wanted to join them on their 21st ramen meal. :)   Continue reading

Weekly Photo Challenge: Close Up

Happy Harbour, Muskoka. July 2015

Recently, I took a really nice close up picture.  This fits in with this week’s theme (I feel like this theme is also similar to this one I participated in).  Sometimes, when doing these weekly photo challenges, I wish I had a mental digital tag for each photo so that when it comes time for these challenges, I can search up keywords immediately and find the best picture.   Continue reading

Summer EC Retreat 2015 in Happy Harbour, Muskoka

Happy Harbour, Muskako. July 2015

This past weekend — well, Sunday and Monday, a few select friends and MA family road-tripped up to Muskoka where we had a relaxing “extended weekend” (my words) at a private lakeside cottage.  I’m pretty sure it was my first time to Muskoka after hearing about friends and acquaintances heading up to this quiet nature-y sanctuary.   Continue reading

Las Vegas Eats 2015: Hash House A Go Go — Dessert Version

Located at 3535 Las Vegas Blvd S in Las Vegas

After we sampled a bit of the pizza at Secret Pizza, we headed to Hash House A Go Go where the other members of Team Warrior were and we had dessert there.  Hash House A Go Go is a famous breakfast and brunch place in Las Vegas that serves gigantic portions of food.  Vivian, Eric, and I came here last year for brunch and we couldn’t even finish two dishes between the three of us.   Continue reading
