Black Forest Pastry Shop

Location: 184 Lakeshore Road East Oakville, ON L6J I’m happy to announce that I have found possibly the best apple pie, ever. It exists at Black Forest Pastry Shop in Oakville and is only $12.99! After popping it into the oven for a few minutes, it came out flaky yet melted in the mouth. The … 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

Soon Torn Bahn Thai

Location: 210 Lakeshore Rd E., Oakville You want spicy. We’ll give you spicy. Be careful what you wish for. Refreshing mango salad to start.  Could have used this after the spicy dishes. Wonton soup. The fish is in there, somewhere.  Trust me. And it was hoooooot! Ironic, that the chicken came in a fish shaped … Continue reading

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!

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

Thai Senses

Location: http://www.thaisenses.ca How apt, we came to our senses and left Compass’s Grand Opening to grab some real grub and found Thai Senses. A wonderful hospitality and creative dishes made for a memorable meal. The coconut ice-cream was complimentary! Besides the creepy fish head, the meal was quite tasty and a welcome change in hospitality … Continue reading

When we arrived just after 8pm, Compass was out of food so I can’t make any judgments on that however I can comment on the drinks and … Continue reading

Oaks Gardens Restaurant

Location: 128 Speers Road, Oakville, ON Cost: $25 for 2 For chinese take-out this place is always reliable. Consistently tasty and they always use good cuts of meat – chicken breast in everything!  The orange chicken (sweet or spicy; had both) is delish! And the portions are huge – and they’re not stingy (ie. always … Continue reading
