Hotpot on Yonge

April 19, 2016


One of my guilty pleasures is eating hotpot style. The thing about hotpot is that it is best when it is shared with a friend. Most of them are setup AYCE and so you better come hungry. There is one that is close to me, HotPot on Yonge and I enjoyed a meal there one […]

Blaze Pizza

October 18, 2015


About two weeks ago, I was invited to the opening of Blaze Pizza at Yonge and Dundas just by Ryerson University. Getting there was like a walk down the memory lane. I was glad I gave myself a few minutes to do a short walk by parking a few streets north. I was able to […]

Super Khorak Supermarket
