Kalamata Greek Taverna

Posted by pennyandrusty under Food, Top Foodie Blog
So, what do you call a Greek restaurant that doesn’t serve Moussaka?  Well, in our case, you call it Kalamata Greek Taverna.  It’s not that they don’t have it listed on their menu though.   We had arrived at Kalamata on West Broadway around 6:30pm looking forward to trying out their Moussaka only to be advised [...]

Joey Broadway

Posted by pennyandrusty under Food, Top Foodie Blog
I don’t think I’ve been to a Joey’s restaurant for a number of years… back then, they were known as Joey Tomato’s.  Joey’s is a lot like Milestones and Cactus Club – casual atmosphere, good food, and staff focussed on service.  That’s not to say they ignore sales… in fact, our server (Sandy) practically up-sold [...]

Ouisi Bistro – Cornbread and Gumbo

Posted by pennyandrusty under Food, Top Foodie Blog
Ouisi Bistro’s been on my wishlist of restaurants to try for a couple of years but we never find ourselves out in that area… until just recently on a rare sunny Friday in November.  I was a bit surprised to see the restaurant was rather dead (not usually a good sign) but at least we [...]

Suika

We were a bit disappointed recently when we stopped by Dockside Restaurant around 11am for lunch only to find out that their lunch menu didn’t start until 11:30am.  Not really feeling in the mood for breakfast, we stayed for a quick bite and then headed down to The Sandbar afterwards for the lunch we were hoping [...]

Dockside Restaurant – Breakfast

Posted by pennyandrusty under Food, Top Foodie Blog
First off, let me just say that I really like Dockside Restaurant in Granville Island.  The food’s usually great and the service is super.  Just take a look at my last few posts here:   Dockside Restaurant,  Dockside Restaurant Revisit – Mussels and Lamb. Well, we haven’t been back for a number of months so we [...]

I arrived Tableau about half an hour early and decided to sit at the bar until the rest of my party arrive.  To kill time, I ordered a bottle of white wine.  Assuming I was still waiting for my party, I stared at the bartender for almost 10 m... [...]

Goldilocks – Filipino Bakery

Posted by pennyandrusty under Food, Top Foodie Blog
Goldilocks is a Filipino bakery/cafe that serves both designer cakes (they have a large display of sample cakes – mainly kids themed) as well as Filipino entrees.  We usually only come here for the pastries though. Goldilocks also has a wide variety of cupcakes.  Although they had some pretty neat Halloween-themed cupcakes, we decided to stick with [...]

A tip for going to a restaurant for dim sum: If you dream of going there on a Sunday, and that applies almost anywhere, be sure to go right when they open or make a reservation right when they open or else you will be standing there all day. Located on... [...]
