Meal Deal: Café Boulud

Hello Everybody!

The season of Summerlicious is upon us so special posting schedule of two this week!

I went to Café Boulud for dinner with Laughliveat and checked out their Summerlicious menu. This is a restaurant that I’ve always wanted to try so I was really excited to check it out. The two of us met up at Bay station and noticed that our outfits matched. Clearly it was a good omen. We got a tad lost when we entered the restaurant, just because the entrance we used said D Bar, but a lovely hostess directed us upstairs to Café Boulud.

Meal Deal: Game of Cheese

Hey Everyone!

Trying to get back into the regular posting business here, so let’s see how long I can hold on before I forget or RL gets the better of me.

The NSSSO and I went to a new restaurant in Commerce Gate in Markham. I’ve driven by it a couple of times before it was open and I had wondered what it would be. Well, obviously they would serve cheese, but to what extent? In what way? Could I also buy cheese there? The questions were numerous and I couldn’t wait for them to be answered.

Meal Deal: Happy Birthday to Me

Hey Everyone!

So if you follow me on Instagram (which you totally should…. link) then you know that I’ve just celebrated my birthday!!

To be fair, the celebrating is still happening as my friends are still booking dinner dates (wink). The amount of food and desserty things that I’ve eaten this year is far larger than I want (recently gained a lot of weight… like a lot), but I’ve decided that birthday food = no calories (excellent adulting). So below the cut is just a brief overview of what I’ve eaten so far.

Summerlicious 2016: Hapa Izakaya

Hello Everyone!

So, Summerlicious might be over this year, but it doesn’t mean that the reviews have stopped!

I went with a bunch of friends (including Laugh Live Eat )for our yearly Summerlicious excursion. This year, we tried a Japanese Izakaya, which I’m not generally for. This is usually because if I’m going to eat little bits of appetizers during Summerlicious, I might as well get the full feel of them during a regular meal. But, the menu looked intriguing enough for me to say yes.

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.
