I’ve been trying out a couple of new restaurants and Oban Sushi is one of them. This restaurant is located on 16th Avenue and Kennedy where the Bur Oak plaza is. Instead of All You Can Eat for lunch – we ordered their bento boxes. They do have a special lunch menu – ranges from $4.99 to $23.99. Click on picture to enlarge the photo for better view.
Their special menu comes with a salad, soup, and a drink.
I ordered the Salmon Teriyaki beno box for $4.99 while my hubby had the Sushi & Sashimi Platter for $8.99.
Overall – everything was good with my bento box except the rice was a bit on the hard side. I can’t really judge this restaurant yet because it’s only my first time here. I’ll give it another try next time to see if the rice will be still as hard. Sushi rolls were delicious. Have you been here before? Any recommendations?

What a disappointment from my last meal at Onion Steak and Seafood restaurant – even this $2.99 Haddock meal at Ikea is better than that! I didn’t know there’s were a deal till I walk into their main lobby! $2.99 includes fries and two piece of haddock. It was very fresh and juicy! Very satisfying for $2.99! I wanted to order another one but hubby was not that hungry. This sure was my first time trying Haddock at Ikea! I’ll be back for more!
Been to Onion Steak & Seafood for the third time. Not a fan of this place – the food is just very “not good” – well to me – it’s just normal. I really didn’t know what to eat here when I know were coming here. I don’t like any of their buffet selections at all. Very blend and tasteless. Good thing was – I wasn’t too hungry to start off with. So I just nibble some of their food. Didn’t eat a lot – just some.
Here’s what Hubby and I had. Not a lot to chose from at all.
Our other family members ordered sizzling plate with their meal.
Here’s the dessert we had.
I don’t recommend this place at all. Also – the buffet price raised a bit – so look out for that!

I’ve been to Yogo Noodles many many times and they never fail to satisfy me – even with their simplest dish. I ordered just the rice noodle “Chern Fun” this time because I wasn’t hungry enough to eat a full meal. It was simple and yet not too much food for me. Hubby ordered his all time favorite – Baked Cream Sauce on Seafood with Spaghetti. See how much seafood there were? It was a quick dinner – everything came so fast.

We headed to La Piazzetta Ristorante Bar & Grill at Monte Carlo Inn for a celebration dinner. It was my Mother-in-law’s birthday and she chose to go here. I’ve been here once and this was my second time stepping inside this restaurant. It’s a Western restaurant but operated by Chinese people. It was quite a quiet place to be on a weekday – only a couple tables were occupied. What I love about their menu is – they have set course dinners at a fix price.
We all ordered a four course meal – it came with either salad or soup, main course, dessert, and a drink. They have different price range depending on what your main course is. The picture above is a lobster bisque soup that my husband ordered.
There was this oyster deal for $9.99 for half a dozen of fresh oysters.

Steak & Shrimp dinner
Forgot what this dessert was called.
Overall – a really satisfying dinner. We were all very full and happy. What better to have in a birthday celebration right? Of course – delicious food does the job! Next time I would like to try their steaks! Have you been here before? What’s your experience? This location is the Woodbine & 16th Avenue location – inside Monte Carlo Inn. The service was excellent – staff were attentive! A place we must come back to !
Yogi Noodle is one of my all-time-favorite. I love their food and not only is their food good – they are pretty inexpensive. This spaghetti bolognese cost $5.99 and it came with a drink too. It’s not only lunch – it’s all day long. Yogi Noodles has two locations. Scarborough location: Warden Avenue & Steeles Avenue. Richmond Hill location: Easter Beaver Creek & Highway 7.
This is what my husband ordered. His all time favorite at this restaurant – Baked Cream Sauce with Ham & Chicken Spaghetti. For $6.99 it came with a drink also.
This is what my brother-in-law ordered. Not sure about the price but it was a big bowl of noodles with lots of dumplings and veggie. Looks like a really yummy and healthy meal for sure. I highly recommend this restaurant. Not because it’s inexpensive but the food is very very tasty!
Had a yummilicious lunch with my best friend and her family at Swiss Chalet. This time at the Dufferin Mall location. Swiss Chalet never disappoints me with their food. Everything was yummy and even the kids were satisfied with their meal. When I looked at the kids menu for the first time – I didn’t know they served that many choices. Now I can’t wait till my son knows how to eat – so we will be dining at Swiss Chalet more often.
This is my usual – was feeling for the quarter chicken and baked potato. I wanted the fries also but it was hard to decide so I stick with the healthier choice. Well – I’m not sure if it’s healthy with the sour cream or not but at least I felt a little healthy. lol.
This is one of the kids meal ordered that afternoon. Pretty good – I wanted to try one piece of the chicken strips but resisted. Have you been to Swiss Chalet? Any comments about their restaurant chain? Love it or hate it?
I’ve been to Golden Phoenix no more than five times. This restaurant has been open for a while now – quite on the popular side I must say. I’m not really a fan of their food or prices. It’s a bit on the pricier side and to me – the food tastes average. They do have quite a bit of specialty dishes here.
I ordered their famous Pork Chop bun. It was fairly fresh – if I remember correctly – it was around $5.00 without a drink. The first time I had it – it wasn’t anything special to me. I prefer the Pork Chop Bun from New City Restaurant. But after trying it out again – it’s really not that bad. The pork chop was really fresh! Would be great if it came with fries too. Overall – a fairly pricey restaurant but I guess what attracts people to this restaurant is that they do have some specialty dishes. After such a big lunch – we headed to check out a leather wallet for my brother.
