[Toronto Airport] Casey’s Grill & Bar

PASSION4FOOD OCT112PASSION4FOOD OCT113

With a four hour delay – we were each granted a $10 voucher to get whatever we want at the airport. Really? Wasted four hours of my time and with only a $10 voucher? I for sure will not take Air Canada ever again. Such a disappointment – especially with having a 18 month old flying with us. Screwed up our schedule!

Since we had lunch prior entering the gates – we were not hungry at all but what to do with $30.00 right? Had to use it up before we board the plane. Ordered a tea, two soups, and chicken wings to share for the hubby while Munchkin naps. At that point – I was already pissed about the four hour delay – I can’t give any food reviews upon this restaurant at the airport.

[Toronto] Spring Rolls @ Eglington & Yonge

PASSION4FOOD J068

I’m never a big fan of Spring Rolls – every time I visit its because I want to see my best friend that works there. She’s a busy lady and in order to see her – I gotta dine at Spring Rolls. Hubby had Thai food – not quite sure what this dish is called.

PASSION4FOOD J069

I shared a sushi & sashimi platter with the best friend. It was my first time having sushi at Spring Rolls and to my surprise – the sushi there is quite delicious! They just brought in Japanese food just a year or two ago. Spring Rolls is really becoming fusion with Vietnamese, Chinese, Japanese, Thai, and what else? They even have steak! I love the varieties they have!

They even have some unique rolls! Too bad there’s no Spring Rolls in Markham! Quite impress with their new menu – definitely worth going back to dine again.

[Markham] Pho Pad Thai – Woodbine Ave & 16th Ave Location

This was my first visit at Pho Pad Thai – I love restaurants like this where there’s different cuisines. This restaurant is a pretty big restaurant and lots of tables. We visited this restaurant on a Saturday night and it was nearly packed. A large selection of dishes to pick from also.

I ordered a small Specialty Pho – gotta say their soup base was pretty tasty and on the good side. I’m super picky when it comes down to Pho – the soup base must be good otherwise it ruins the bowl of Pho. Not a disappointment at all!

We ordered a dish of Skewers to share between five people. By the time I finished my bowl of Pho – I was over-full already and didn’t get to try these. It smelt really yummy though – this is a must re-order next time! A better review next time on this dish! Service was decent and so is the presentation of food!

Highly recommend this restaurant!

[Scarborough] Gourmet Malaysia HALAL Family Restaurant — Food & Restaurant Review

This is my first time at Gourmet Malaysia HALAL family Restaurant. They have a wide variety of dishes. From Malaysian food to Singaporean food to Thai food to many different Asian food. Pretty neat with so many different kinds of cuisines in one restaurant right?

This is the large menu variety in this restaurant. I had trouble of picking what I really wanted to eat. Kept going back and forth on it. Most of the food is Malaysian food – which I never really had Malaysian food before and didn’t really want to try something that I wouldn’t like. It was quite tough.

My girlfriend ordered a Chicken Corn Soup  – when it came – the appearance was like that. Wish it was much more neat than having it all poured over the place.

I believe this is the Sweet and Sour soup – look at the presentation! Very poor presentation.

This is the appetizer my friend ordered – no idea what’s it called.

Another appetizer my friend ordered – called the Roti? Not quite sure – I didn’t try it.

This is like a meal for one of my girlfriends. Looks nice right?

This is my meal – I thought ordering Pad Thai wouldn’t go wrong since I always have Pad Thai at other restaurants. But apparently they make it differently.

Noodles with veggies.

Chicken with Rice.

Overall – to me the restaurant was “so so” – service was “so so” as well. Wish the presentation of food wasn’t poorly presented. I would give it another try to see how the other dishes is like because being there once really don’t do any justice till you try it out one more time.

Lemongrass Pho & Pad Thai Review

Lemongrass is one of my favorite go to’s. They have a big menu and a lot to choose from. It’s sort of like the ‘fusion’ menu. They have Vietnamese, Thai, Chinese, Malaysian and the list goes on. All in one restaurant! What’s not to be like about it right? Most importantly – the food tastes pretty good too. We usually go to this restaurant for lunch. Vietnamese Pho is what my hubby goes for when we have lunch here.

I ordered the Pad Thai special that is $6.99+tax. Not too bad – the portion is good and it comes with 2 mini spring rolls and 2 curry beef skewers. A bit heavy for lunch but I usually pack half my lunch home anyways. I’m a small portion eater.

Yorkdale Mall Food Court ;; Thai Express & KFC

It was awhile that we stepped our foot back into this shopping mall. This is a very dangerous shopping mall in Toronto! Well – more like dangerous for the wallet and bank account! I try to stay away from this mall as long as possible because with all the brand names they have – I can easily go bankrupt.

They renovated almost the entire mall including the food court. The food court is super fancy and look at what they use for their plates, bowls, utensils, and cups! A bit too fancy? I’ve never been to a food court this fancy here in Toronto! I’m not too sure about the ‘glass’ cups because when I was there that day – I heard two accidents of glass cups that dropped on the ground. What a waste right? What’s your thoughts on this?

Lemongrass lunch special $6.99

Yum yum yum! Looking at this picture makes me hungry already. The pad Thai here is delicious! But of course very fatty! Once in a while is alright – can’t have it all the time. This $6.99 meal came with a drink as well. Your choice of milk tea/coffee or mango drink. For $6.99 for a meal like this is not bad right? Usually I can’t finish it – I can only finish 2/3 of this.

Lemongrass Scarborough

One of my favorite Chinese place to dine is Lemongrass – food is very tasty here and a lot of variety to choose from. My personal favor is the Pad Thai but I do try other food from time to time. I totally recommend you to try this place out – they have an entire menu for lunch special. All their lunch comes with a drink too – that’s a bonus! Have you tried Lemongrass before? What’s your thought on it?
