My brother couldn’t stop raving about the delicious Nori Fries at Shiso Tree Café. That’s when I decided it was somewhere I needed to visit. My boyfriend and I went on a Saturday night and it was completely packed with hungry patrons. We were really surprised by the prices on the menu as all the dishes seemed very reasonably priced. We may have gone overboard ordering 6 items on the menu.
For anyone’s who read my other reviews, it’s clear… I love Japanese food. Sushi Time was suggested by a friend who works close to me and since it’s a 5 minute walk away, it was time to try it.
After searching for a decent Groupon, I stumbled across this place. It seemed alright and it was close enough to home that I wouldn’t have to go out of my way.
So back in my university days, we frequented AYCE (all you can eat) sushi joints often. We would find a new place to try (thank goodness for student loans) and eat until we couldn’t walk anymore. However, after growing up and realizing that these things cost money, I haven’t been able to go out as much as I used to. But my boyfriend and I do occasionally enjoy going out binging and seeing how much we can polish off.
Since I started working downtown, the temptations of restaurants really get to me. Meeting up with an old university friend, we decided to try out The Battered Fish on Queen Street West, after finding a cheap Groupon online. Upon reading other reviews, there was something I had my eye on, the lobster roll. Since the Groupon was only good for $15 and the price one lobster roll was $15, we got separate Groupons.
The good ‘old Sushi Bong.
I love this place.
Tofu is one of those foods that are so versatile. You can fry it, bake it, boil it, make it sweet, savory, or anything else you can imagine. Tofu is bland so be sure to season it well, no matter how you cook it.
I used to bake quite a bit when I was in University and I would always make my sugar cookies which my friends loved. Cookies can be cut and decorated any way you’d like so they make a great gift for any occasion. Who doesn’t love cookies?!
I struggle with pizza, it’s one of those things that are hit or miss with the frozen variety and really expensive when getting delivery. So I thought, why not just make it at home by yourself? This super simple recipe is great when you’re running low on time and don’t feel like ordering in. And creating small personal pizzas for the whole family won’t cost you a lot!
Supermarkets overprice guacamole considering how easy (and cheap!) it is to just make yourself. Paired with homemade pita chips and your snacking life will never be the same.
