Dining 101 [Toronto]: RAA Uptown Japanese

Restaurant: RAA Uptown Japanese Location: 4848 Yonge Street, Toronto, ON Cuisine: Japanese/ Sushi/ Tapas Menu: http://www.raajapanese.com/ Price: $10-15 It’s no wonder they offered a Teambuy Deal (something like Groupon) for this place. RAA would definitely not be on my foodie radar if it hadn’t been for my friend’s frugal purchase. The interior was impressive with a lot of detail and fixtures that … Continue reading

Cooking 101: #19 – Japanese Curry Chicken w/ Rice

Thank Goodness for Air Mailed Glico Curry… I don’t always eat curry, but somehow I was just craving Japanese Curry. That creamy, mildly spicy yet sweet sauce over firmly cooked rice “drools”:). How fortunate that my friend mailed me boxes of Glico Mild Curry Blocks <3! I was even more excited to cook after watching … Continue reading

Not to mention, with the awesome experiences I’ve had at Kingyo, I was sure this would not disappoint! The interior was simple, but what caught my attention was the beer-bottle … Continue reading

Dining 101 [Vancouver]: Aji Taro

Restaurant: Aji Taro Location: 4940 #3 Road, Richmond, BC Cuisine: Japanese/ Sushi/ All-You-Can-Eat Menu: http://www.ajitaro.com/ Price: $15-25 I guess for late-night sushi, the standards are quite low? I’d compare it to packaged cookies vs. fresh baked. You can’t expect the same quality from both! During late night Aji Taro has a Standard Late Night Menu as well as a Deluxe Late Night … Continue reading

Dining 101 [Ottawa]: Hockey Sushi

Restaurant: Hockey Sushi Location: 4055 Carling Avenue, Ottawa, ON Cuisine: Japanese/ Sushi Menu: http://kanata.hockeysushi.com/menu/index.php Price: $15-25 Probably the best All-You-Can-Eat Sushi in Kanata, but definitely not the best I’ve had. I still think Sushi Kan is probably still the best I’ve had in Ottawa, but Hockey Sushi is decent although a bit overpriced for the quality. On a more … Continue reading
