Boston: Temazcal Cantina


Location: 250 Northern Avenue Boston, MA http://www.temazcalcantina.com We went to Temazcal to celebrate my BIL’s birthday. It was one of those early Fall September days, so the rain was coming down, and it was a Friday so we did get caught in rush-hour traffic. On top of this, a few things to note: Temazcal doesn’t … Continue reading

Boston: Max & Dylan’s


Location: 15 West Street Boston http://www.maxanddylans.com/ Running errands one day in Boston, it was inevitable that our hunger pangs would set in. We were able to scope out a couple of places finally deciding upon Max & Dylan’s. It may have had something to do with the quaint bookstore beside it, The Brattle Book Shop, … Continue reading

Location(s): A.  732 Sainte-Catherine Street West, Montreal B.  1658, rue Saint-Denis, Montréal http://www.les3brasseurs.ca (All images photohogger) Let me start with the pros of the restaurant: Amazing beer-battered poutine.  Great atmosphere: loud, bustling, was fun to be there during the Stanley Cup playoffs.

TRAVEL: Montreal: Nil Bleu


Location: 3706 Rue Saint-Denis Montreal, QC http://www.nilbleu.ca/ Hands down the best Ethiopian restaurant I’ve been to thus far.  But don’t ask me, ask my Mom and Mom-in-Law who couldn’t stop raving about it.  And they know how to cook, if you know what I mean. The dishes we ordered were: YETIMATIM SALAD $4.95 (tomatoes, onions, … Continue reading

TRAVEL: Quebec City, Carlo’s Pizza


Location: 117, Rte Principale E RR 2, Sainte-Cécile-de-Masham, QC J0X 2W0, 819-456-4545 Not only does Carlo do pizza, and amazingly well (the veggie one we got was chock-full of tasty veggies and not very greasy), he does the best poutine I’ve ever tasted in Quebec!  Mighty squishy curds and a not-too-salty gravy that’s just the right consistency.  The pan fried tilapia was amazing … Continue reading

Tokyo Bay


Location: 125 Kerr Street Oakville, ON Since when are you not allowed any substitutions at a Japanese restaurant? Isn’t everything made fresh? It’s not like the sushi is pre-made and stuffed with something else beforehand? And worse, this wasn’t even a sushi substitution but rather a bento box substitution. Instead of CHICKEN, I requested SALMON. … Continue reading

TRAVEL: Paris: McDonald’s


Don’t judge me. We did it in India, so we had to do it Paris. Eat at a McDonald’s, that is. And it was très magnifique! Gotta love this guy who posed for the picture! Oh we also had a Kronenbourg 1664 beer, but it wasn’t cold enough.

TRAVEL: Honolulu, Hawaii: Roys


Location: 226 Lewers St Honolulu, HI http://www.roysrestaurant.com After visiting Mama’s Fish House in Maui three years ago, we didn’t think anything could come close.  Let me tell you, Roy’s comes pretty close! I’ve never been to a restaurant where there has been such incredible attention to my dietary concerns!  Our server was worried that I … Continue reading
