So. I haven't been updating. Blame JT for hoarding my pictures.
Well there were also midterms, Kevinbobo's birthday dinner, watching the Canada VS. USA Olympics hockey game, and 林海鋒 Jan Lamb's stand-up comedy show at Casino Rama. So I guess it's partly my fault too. Partly.
Before I start the first review of the huge backlog of posts I have accumulated, today I saw an article on BlogTO called "A dim sum experience that's worth the trip to Etobicoke". And I thought to myself, it's probably Grand Chinese Cuisine, the one I raved on and on in my review about Toronto's best dim sum that's not as expensive as Lai Wah Heen. And I was right. :D Check it out!
Kon-nichi-wa Japanese Restaurant, an extremely small restaurant located on Baldwin St. & Mc Caul St. in downtown Toronto. It's like the midpoint between UTSG and OCAD.
Renée, David, Johnny L and I went here for lunch on a weekday and it was PACKED because it's so small. There were probably 8 tables for 2 in total. Since we had 4 people, we had to wait for 2 adjacent available tables. So we stood outside, freezing for half an hour.
Not too long after, our katsu curry rice came: breaded pork cutlet on a bed of rice with curry sauce, steamed vegetables and pickled radish. In fact, it was LOADS of curry sauce and big portions of pork cutlet, but then again for ~$14, it better be big portions.
Thick, breaded pork cutlet.
a bowl of plain udon + avocado roll + shrimp and vegetable tempura ~$12.50. They said it was good, the udon tasted better than the usual packaged ones.
