Pho 88 (North York)

Located at 5197 Yonge Street in North York

After our Basic 5 training, in which 4 hours passed by like a snap — Keith Doyle trains so flawlessly and makes everything so fun — we went for lunch around the North York Centre area.  Lawrence was in the mood for some pho, so off the Pho 88 we went.   Continue reading

Weekly Photo Challenge: Refraction

Santouka

Located at 91 Dundas St East in Toronto

I’m a little late on completing the ramen craze that’s landed in Toronto, but here I am reviewing Santouka!

Jessica and I dined here on a Thursday night and the line-up was huge!  There was construction going on outside the restaurant at the time so it was amusing that everyone lining up stood on top of a wooden plank.

This time, we ordered just enough and even had room for dessert.   Continue reading

Chinese Halal Restaurant

Located at 668 Silver Star Blvd in Scarborough

You learn something new every day and I’m so thankful that I got to learn something new when I was dining out with Shelley a couple of weeks ago.  We met up to have an early dinner at Chinese Halal Restaurant.  Up to this point, I didn’t know exactly what “halal” meant.  Shelley gave me a quick lesson on what it meant.  Yay!  Thanks, Shelley!   Continue reading
