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).

VACAY MAYDAY: Norway

Hey Everyone!

I’m officially free of jet lag (#VacayMayday indeed ) and am back to my regular pattern of “ugh work” and “Rawr sleep” and “Mmm fooooood”. So lets get this ball rolling!

In conjunction with Curiosity’s anniversary (which was actually yesterday), I am filming a review of Vacay Mayday to Norway and will have that up today/tonight. But here, have this mini review for now.

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?

Meal Deal: Moji Japanese Eatery

Hey Everyone!

First Meal Deal of the year (party!) and I’m looking forward to sharing my 2016 meals.

(sorry it is so late… I’ve been terribly sick)

I visited a new Japanese restaurant in Markham. The NSSSO and I walked into it on December 23rd and were told that they weren’t open till December 24th. We most definitely looked at each other and said huh to each other. So we came back again the first week of January.

Moji is a cute little restaurant. The place gives off a mismatched feel which makes things feel eclectic, Curiosity likes eclectic. I enjoyed he atmosphere quite a bit indeed.
