Sake,ramen,skiing and Indian!

I’m back and I come bringing a lot o food adventures!

Starting off with an amazing sake tour from the Ontario spring water sake company in the distillery district in Canada!

Though the day I went with a friend unfortunately coincided with a power outage, instead of a full tour we had a great description and story telling of how sake is made by a wonderful employee there!

We tried almost all the different types of sake produced there, instead of the usual 4 tasters we got 6. Probably because we were the only tourers there and plus the power outage. BUT YAY regardless! My favorite was numa-cho!

The side products of sake is of course the rice products. Features above are the DELICIOUS salad dressings made from the rice products. My favorite was the wasabi one. We dipped the rice crackers into the salad dressings to try.

In the end I definitely would suggest going!! Much fun and tipsy happy end story, though I’d like to suggest you eat before the tour because I didn’t. xD

After the tour my friend and I decided to get ramen at Kenzo! TONKATSU FTW!

Beer and Korean food goodies

So I recently went back to Toronto for christmas(relatives and such) so on Boxing Day I decided to hang out with my friend Kirill.

We decided to meet at the eaton centre ON BOXING DAY. LOL

Yeah not so smooth planning on our parts. LOL

The whole thing was bad planning but we still had tons of fun!

First we went to Ka Chi for lunch we a beer, we chose the 500ml Sapporo as opposed to the 340ml cause we’re hardcore! LOL at 1pm LOL.

JK I also ate really good soon dobu jigae, they actually had a lot of options but in the end I chose the pork and vegetables one LOL ❤

Ka Chi is pretty freaking good Korean food, I would recommend it to anyone really.

Next we went to our fav and only pub Sins and Redemption!!!

We both had two beers,

I had FRÜLI’S STRAWBERRY BEER AND IT WAS AMAZINNGGGGGGG. I’m in love.

20121228-093209.jpg

It is the redish pink drink next to me. DELICIOUS OH NOM NOM NOM

Next I had the somersby cider, a though a very good hard cider I was too love struck by the FRÜLI to truly enjoy it!

20121228-093347.jpg

Fun fact about Sins is that they seem to have all the cups that go with the brand drink. ^^

Hope you all had a wonder Christmas!

Ka Chi, bibimbap

YUMMM one of my most favorite Korean dish is bibimbap!

A rice dish in a hot stone pot with assorted vegetables, beef and an egg!

The best part is that in the end you can eat the burnt rice. Nom nom nom.

I had it at Ka Chi, though it was completely crowded at 6 pm on a Sunday it was worth it. Ka Chi was great! 🙂

Try it sometime.

Korean take out!

So last night instead of doing that eating out and alone thing I decided to order the pork bone soup (gamjatang) out to go.

LOL yeah didn’t feel like eating alone while some people look at me and I feel awkward.

But it was interesting since I never ordered Korean as take out, or soup for that matter so it was interesting to see what it would look like!

I got some bonchon (YAY) kimchi and pickled radish!

20121018-112612.jpg

And rice!

20121018-112704.jpg

AND A LOT OF THE SOUPP!!! Yay!

20121018-112748.jpg

I absolutely LOVE the pork bone soup from the Owl of Minerva, it’s delicious.

YAYAYYAYAYAY!

So yeah that was my dinner, loved it!

Vegetarian food…SURPRISE IT’S DELICIOUS!

So contrary to my meat eating tendencies I decided for a change to have vegetarian food!

And with good cause really!

My favorite non-Indian vegetarian cuisine would be a Chinese vegetarian place close to my heart.

Buddha’s Vegetarian in downtown Toronto! 🙂

I used to go there after temple almost every time I went to temple. If temple didn’t serve food that is. XD

So I think 3 times a month or something a special dish is made at the restaurant…don’t know what it’s called but in the front of the store usually contains the premade vegetarian food of the day!

So here it is!

20121016-155442.jpg

And there it is! ^ deliciousness.

I also got the sample package of some of all the usuals.

20121016-155555.jpg

I bought those both as take out so I’d have a premade dinner… For the rest of the week…! LOL JK

20121016-155704.jpg

But at the restaurant I bought a noodle dish. And spring rolls!

20121016-155754.jpg

Over 1000 views! And Korean food!

YAYYYY thank you to all my readers! I’ve finally reach 1000 views!

I’m going to give myself a pat on the back and virtually give you all a high five! *high five*

20121015-173422.jpg

That was just proof. XD

So onto the Korean food!

I went to the Owl of Minerva, I went to the branch located in dragon city centre!

I ordered the Gom Tang, or beef bone soup!

20121015-173558.jpg

And I really like the Bon chon that came with the soup!!! Mmm side dishes, yum.

20121015-173829.jpg

I was a bit tempted to try the Soju, but at $15 CAD I didn’t think it was worth drinking alone. LOL

Unfortunately I was a bit disappointed with the Gom Tang itself. It was a bit bland and I had to put a lot of salt into it to even have a bit of taste. But I really like the Gamja Tang there, so next time I’m there I’ll get that. XD

Thanks for reading! 🙂

Dimsum again? YAY!

Today started off a bit weirdly, I snubbed my big toe in the morning when I was walking down the stairs to go shower XD that was painful.

Then I got a free pair of glasses! LOL
I saw a reddit ad, and decided to see if it was legit, seems that it is and they’re currently having a promotion that your first pair of glasses is on them! I ordered Derek cardigan black fade, the total came out to be $40~ with shipping and handling and I added the scratch resistance + anti lens flare + anti uv rays LOL. I’ll update once I get them! But as far as I know the deal is available both on the US and Canada site:

Coastal.com
Clearlyclearcontacts.ca

And then the most fail/ funny thing happened when I opened my coconut milk LOL

20121010-160852.jpg

I added the text because it seemed to fit!

Okay next the slide show of dimsum, I also got congee + Shu Mai but I decided not to take pictures of them since they’re redundant. I eat it too often.

First the chow mein, the difference between regular chow mein and this, is the fact that its more delicious, HK styled chow meinnnn! I kid, mostly it’s the cooking difference, they use a large wok to cook it, and flip the noodles with a lot of air. Regardless, I love it. Add a little hot sauce and it’s perfect!

20121010-161208.jpg

Also there was a lot more noodles piled on top but I ate some before taking a picture. XD

Next: some awesome veggies, I didn’t catch the name of it when my grandmother ordered it but you can see it and order it regardless!

Thank you for reading, and I hope you nom soon! 🙂

Fried noms and yums

This week’s post updates have been going fairly well if I don’t say so myself!

I’ve been a relatively good blogger so I decided to treat myself to some noms!

Here in Toronto it’s thanksgiving or in the states it’s Columbus Day, either way… THREE DAY WEEKEND AWW YEAAAAAAAA!

So yeah here are my noms of the day!

I started off breakfast/brunch at my local favorite bakery, Furama.

I had milk tea and a corn/ham bread NOM NOM NOM!

Just a little dimsum

Another quicky post: dimsum for lunch!

So I ate lunch with some relatives at Dragon city centre’s dimsum place, but I arrived late so sorry for the lack of dimsum!

Though, the highlight topic among the Middle Aged relatives would be karaoke night LOL they have 60 people so far going. Karaoke for Asians is like no other group activity ever seen. I’m happy I’m not invited xD

I had the normal hah-gow(?) and Shu Mai. And something…. LOL it was all delicious ^_^
