Meal Deal: Momofuku Noodle Bar and Milk Bar

Hello everyone!

Another week, another Meal Deal. I hung out with my friend Laughliveat and another friend over the weekend. We checked out Momofuku Noodle Bar and Milk Bar since none of us had ever visited the place. It really was quite an experience, why don’t I tell you about it.

The restaurant is modern with an emphasis on blonde wood. The place is really much smaller than I expected. The service wasn’t bad, but the seating arrangements aren’t my favourite. Sharing tables with strangers is always an awkward adventure, but how else do they seat the amount of people that show up if they have little seating?

Meal Deal: MeNami

Hello Everyone!

It’s been a while and I have been terrible at posting, but have no fear, a new Meal Deal is well on its way.

So, my friend was travelling to Asia and wanted to borrow a universal adapter for her trip. We made plans to eat dinner and well… why not try out something new while we’re at it right? Since mutual meeting ground appeared to be Yonge and Finch, we decided to try a restaurant my colleague recommended.

MeNami bills itself as the first genuinely traditional Udon House in Ontario. What is an udon house and how is it different from Ramen joints is beyond me. But, off we went! The interior is eclectically hipster, clearly built for younger people who wanted a drink and some food. We loved it instantly, describing it charming and fun (The sign is a bit old Hollywood vanity though).

Meal Deal: AKA-ONI Izakaya

Hello Everyone!
A Meal Deal right before Curiosity heads off to her overseas adventure (WoOt!). So look forward to another Vacay Mayday post!

Had lunch with a friend before the NSSSO and I started our last minute packing panic (most disorganized the NSSSO and I have every been). Tried out a new Japanese Izakaya (which I’m starting to think is really just a way of saying NOT AYCE) in Scarborough. I liked it when I saw it. They went extremely contemporary, which I wasn’t expecting because the plaza is not known for outstanding… anything. Let’s just get on with the Meal Deal shall we?
