Winterlicious is back! My trip to Red Lobster, La Petite France, Auberge du Pommier and Canoe

Time to bombard food photos. Yay!!! I did have fun time playing with #photogrid #afterlight and #instamag

Friday 13th Feb 2015 Red Lobster aka Chattime chilling with my girls

I havent hang out with them for so long- def one of the best night out ever, especially before Valentine day. (we could heard couples whispering Happy Valentine Day beside our table). Haha – i left my bf chilling with his laptop at home Friday night.

Our girl talks still as Loud, Stupid & diRty as ever! lol

Since 4 girls hanging out alone before Valentine, a couple of incident happened. We got invited to hang out with some other guys but we rejected it. & there was this viet guy passed by our table @redlobster & told me he understood Viet & what we said (all my friends went to WC & left me there alone when he came to talk to me). I told all my frds afterward, all of us were like…”you heard our talk???omgggg” Not to mention we were all of laughing not so long ago about how we were so lucky no one here understand our language. :)))

We were also constantly looking at the live window @chattime to see if our hashtag instagram+pictures there. We saw it in the end but its too fast we couldnt take pictures.

Friday Feb 6th 2015 La Petite France Winterlicious/ 7West Cafe friends reunion

We all thought La Petite France was in downtown- turn out its in Etobicoke. This family owed restaurant was full of older people- we were the only young group there. :0

The food turned out to be so good- does not look as fancy as Canoe but this home comforting food tasted so yummy/ im so in love w the chef’s seasoning- yum yum. The dessert was so nomnom too- we all have Poire Belle Helene (peach with vanilla icecream & chocolate sauce?) the chocolate moose was sold out & we all werent so fond of lemon tarte

Later we hung out at the 7 West Cafe to enjoy some sweet &tea- how come I just find out about this gem?? its so close to my house too (the velvet cheesecake is so yum!!!)

Sunday Feb 1st 2015 First Winterlicious @ Canoe

Me & my boyfriend were kinda lost inside the path before going to Canoe (it was such a snow-storming day too & we were having a fight over choosing the direction)

I must say the courses were a feast to the eyes. And thats the end. The price were too high for us to consider going back again.

Oh~ and it is also my first time seeing a proposal inside the restaurant.

I heard:”omg , you are so mean”. Looking up, thinking “are they going to fight?!2#@. And saw this guys in his knee & took out the ring. Thats so sweet, I do wish them a happy life forever:).  Still, if it were me, I wouldnt like the idea of proposal inside the restaurant full of people looking at you like watching some kind of movie.

Canoe Restaurant & Bar on Urbanspoon

Sunday Feb 8th 2015 Winterlicious @ Auberge du Pommier

Though they actually the same chain of company with Canoe, one thing i have to say about this place, the Service is Top-notch – best I ever experienced. I also like the ambient elegant atmosphere, nice decoration and soft music.

The food is so delicious- well worth the price. I would rate 5 star for this experience.

Summerlicious Update (Continue…)

1. Fred’s Not Here

Appetizer

Wood Grilled Calamari & Chorizo Sausage with Arugula

Good sauce. Hmm… the portion is really small & less delicious compared to the famous lobster soup that my friends have…

Baked Our Famous Lobster & Crab Soup

Main Entree

Wood Grilled “California Cut” New York Strip Steak
with Sautéed Garlic Mushrooms, Duck Fat Frites & Vegetables

The steak is medium rare. It is little dry but overall good.

Roasted East Coast Lobster & Mussels
with Linguine Marinara

The lobster is excellent!!!. great combination of tomato pasta with seafood. This dish worth my $35 ! & Never mind the way i hold my folk T,T

Wood Grilled Salmon & Jumbo Tiger Shrimp
with Lemon Asparagus Risotto

My friend did not like her pick with the salmon & tiger shrimp. :<

Dessert.

My dessert is horrible. My caramel popcorn is so hard i cant chew it.. so i munched all the chocolate ice cream. T.T

Caramel Pop Corn Chocolate Hazelnut Sundae

From the top Daily Selection Cheesecake, Mixed Berry Shortcake(right) & Fresh Fruit Ice (vegetarian) (left)

We tried each other desert. Not so good :\

Rating:

1. Appetizer : 3.5/5

2. Main Entree: 4/5

3. Desert: 2/5

4. Atmosphere: 4/5 (family, friend, co-worker)

5. Service: 2.5/5 (the server forgot to bring the cracker for the lobster & constantly going back to rush us, he gave us the bill when we have not finish it & said they have full reservation & lots of customers while we saw so many vacant table around. he just want to clear his table to get more customers for himself.. such bad work ethic.)

 

Summerlicious- Morgans On The Danforth

Located in Greek Town Further East of Toronto, the restaurant seem to separate its self from all the noises of the busier part of the Danforth. It is small but cozy with friendly atmosphere and great service staff.  We did not order any alcohol due the recent hungover last “throw back Thursday”, kinda regret it since they are known for their craft beers. And we picked the restaurant for its highly rated reviews…

This is our $25 order from their Summerlicious Menu

Moroccan Carrot Soup (vegetarian/local) with Toasted Cumin and Candied Ginger 

DSC01133
Green Chili and Corn Fritter “Stack”
with Roasted Heirloom Tomatoes and Arugula with an Ancho Chili Crema

DSC01135

This is my winner for the whole meal, you could not underestimate this normal looking guys cuz the moment you chew it, it is so crunchy & open up to so many tastes inside. The corn is a perfect mix with chilli, so many deli taste & nomnom. ❤

Main dishes

Steak Frites
AAA 8oz Strip grilled to order with Thyme and Merlot Demi and Golden Frites

Quicos Crusted Ontario White Fish (local)
Pan Fried and served with Salsa Crudo, Saffron Rice and Seasonal VegetablesDSC01146

The steak is good but i feel like it lacks of something for it to stand out, maybe sauce or more seasoning..

The fish is another winner here, so crunchy & soft, good mix with tomato & the rice but the rice disappointed me, it was hard.

Desert

Wild Blueberry Kuchen
Oma Strikes again with this Delicious Crumb Cake studded with Wild Blueberries, served warm with Vanilla Ice Cream

DSC01158

The Betty Page Sundae
Dark Chocolate Brownie Chunks with Vanilla Ice Cream and Dark Chocolate Sauce, Whipped Cream and a Cherry on top

DSC01157

For the dessert, it was average good. i prefer less sugar. 🙂
