Meal Deal: Kiu

Hello Everyone!

Wow I’ve been remiss in my blogging duties. The NSSSO reminded me the other day that I had blog that I am responsible for… not just the eating part. So here I am, making up for lost time (?), if this counts in any way that is.

My first post this summer is the new(ish) Japanese Izakaya in what is now known as Downtown Markham (I have yet to figure out where Uptown Markham is… although there are signs eluding to it… perhaps they are condos…). It was an experience for sure. We tried to make a reservation for Friday night, and lo and behold, we were told they were completely booked. Is this restaurant really that good? We tried again on a weekday and got a reservation.

It’s a nice place, I want to say modern… but what place isn’t nowadays? Instead, I’m going to paint you a picture with nothing and say that it reminds me of a larger more expensive looking version of Guu. Where Guu has wooden tables and a lack of seating area, Kiu has seating in spades. A sushi bar is set to one side so you can watch them as they work. The kitchen is open for all to see, hence they added bar seating there. The experience is sort of like being sat at a chef’s table.

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.

Meal Deal: Sweet Esc

Hello Everyone!

I’m not really sure how to start these anymore. Maybe life has got me and I’m feeling down. Maybe my shoulder is killing me for reasons unknown to me. Perhaps I’m just a whiner to begin with. Whatever the reason, I feel like this maybe one of my less interesting blog entries.

MOVING ON! I recently visited a dessert place by the name of Sweet Esc. Cute.

Sense Izakaya

Happy New Year everyone! I’m almost a month late with my New Year post, but I hope no one minds.

I visited a brand new restaurant to start my first post for a brand new year. When I visited Sense a couple of days after it opened, completely by accident. Living close to First Markham Place often means that we eat there quite often. A new restaurant opening in FMP (to me) is always an exciting event.
