Wang’s Kitchen


Location: 4559 Hurontario Street, Mississauga Apart from the date pancake I had…the food is just okay at this Kitchen.  But maybe that’s only ’cause I do like Maraschino cherries.

Bombay Bhel


Location: 230 Commerce Valley Dr E., Markham and 2525 Hampshire Gate, Oakville The one in Oakville is better than the Thornhill location, but for hearty, family style Indian food, look no futher than THE BHEL!

Outstanding in the Field


I love this concept, an outdoor dining experience set in a variety of wonderful locations with the focus on local ingredients and a meal prepared by a local gourmet chef. Fantastic! Check out their website.  Where can I sign up? (Images from Outstanding In The Field) Via exPress-o – Thanks Diana!

Little India


Location: 255 Queen St W., Toronto For lunch buffets…this is KING….what else do you call 3 FLOORS of lunch buffet?? Of course, the third floor parties had to come down to the 2nd floor for refills, but have you seen a bigger buffet than this? The onion bhajis could have been fresher and some of … Continue reading

Axia Restaurant & Bar


Location: A-5045 Plantation Pl., Mississauga If it weren’t for the “Restaurant & Bar” in the name…you’d think Axia were a club.  You did, didn’t you? Well, it’s not.  I don’t know why they named it that, ’cause the inside of it looks like some sort of vacation package hotel….cane chairs upholstered in tropical fabric, hanging … Continue reading

The Magic Oven


Location: 6 Wellesley When green chillies underly an innocent tandoori chicken pizza, you KNOW the chef knows his biniss. As he should at THESE pizza prices!! Smelt flour or no smelt flour…I hope these pizzas have some magic in ’em ’cause they’re expensive! Not a fan of the Liberty Village location as I got sick … Continue reading
