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

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

Location: 87 Avenue Road, Toronto Cost: Hot chocolate $2.99 (mint shot $.50), cooked sushi combo 6.49, avocado roll $5.99 To clarify; this review is not about the Whole Foods Market in Yorkville….which I actually like very much and can’t complain about.

Everything was paid for…the drinks, the appetizers and the cake! The sushi, the popcorn shrimp, the chicken wings…everything was absolutely delicious! You know I’m not a sushi connoisseur by any means but … Continue reading

Aji Sai

Location: 467 Queen St. W, Toronto It seems Queen street is constantly reinventing itself…new restaurants…new condos….new yoga studios. There are the staples: Gandhi’s, New York Sub, Subway and then the newbies: Leslieville Cheese Market and the maybe not so new anymore, Aji Sai Japanese restaurant. These were the sorts of dishes we shared around… I’ve … Continue reading

Ichiban Sushi

Location: 262 Queens Quay West, Toronto http://www.ichibansushi.com When we lived in the city, one of the closest sushi restaurants to us was Ichiban Sushi; we were constantly ordering in from there (or dining in). For reliably standard sushi, Ichiban doesn’t go wrong.

I Love Sushi

Location: 494 Queen St. West, Toronto Cost: $34 – 44 per platter (61-64 pieces) http://www.ilovesushi.ca Contrary to this post’s title, I don’t love sushi. I opt for it only when I get crazy pregnant-woman cravings. I am also not pregnant. However, when you’re working late and the options are pizza or sushi. And you’re lactose-intolerant … Continue reading
