Mabu Generation food

Mabu Generation located at 3235 Hwy 7 #23-26 in Markham

This past Tuesday, I was invited to Mabu Generation to a tasting event organized by DKLoEvents.  I had been to Mabu Generation for dinner with my friend previously (that blog post is available here).  From that visit, I didn’t have the fondest impression of the restaurant because I thought that while their menu selection was large and varied, the quality of the food was a little lacking.  I did say that I wanted to return though because I wanted to try their dessert items and other dishes too — their menu was so large that there was Continue reading

Big Beef Bowl has opened up their newest second location in Markham at the very popular Peachtree/New Kennedy Square plaza!  The first time that I tried the noodles and food from Big Beef Bowl was earlier this year when Ken and I went to their original location at Yonge & Finch and absolutely loved our meal since all the noodles were made fresh to order and we could see the hand pulled noodles being pounded Continue reading
