From 2010-12-23

One of my favourite bite of the year has to be a warm freshly baked Thomas Haas's Almond Croissant. Worth going to their store and waiting for a new batch to be brought out. I guarantee you won't be disappointed. Almost everything is amazing at the store. The croissant is available at selected 49th parallel and at La Faux Bourgeois cafe.
I also love their hot chocolate and pull a-part as well.

Sushi Hachi - Oh Toro



Hey, I am a member of PETA. Yes! bluefin tuna's are on the endangered species list. But as a PETA(Person that Enjoys Tasty Animal) member I can concur that it is sinful to enjoy eating o-toro.

Song Huong - Bo 3 Mon


Vietnamese beef rolled in la lot leaf and grilled 3 course. Fun food to eat with close friends. This is a messy but worthwhile affair. There is the Bo 7 Mon, but I don't care for some of the other 4 courses.

Shanghai Wonderful - Crispy Turnip Pastry


The pastry is divine. A flaky crispy semi sweet baked dumplings filled with cooked turnips. Too bad I am not crazy about this restaurant. But would love to try this again.

Lucky Tao Seafood - Alaskan King Crab



For many people there are four seasons. For foodies and chefs, there are so many more seasons. Besides the weather seasons we have seasons for food items like asparagus to look forward to in spring. There are matsutake season, spot prawn, etc... Though there no real Alaska King Crab season. I always look forward to AKC 'season'. When prices for this royal crustacean drop from a high of 39.99/lb to 9.99/lb.
This Lucky Tao version has the best deep-fried version. Better than Phnom Penh's chicken wings. Can't wait for king crab season..!!

Lido - Pineapple Bun with Butter



Ahhh simple and nice afternoon tea treat. Love this bun and the milk tea at Lido.

Hou Lok - Deep Fried Sea Cucmber 'Muscle'



This is one odd item. I don't even know for sure how to order it. I have to describe it every time I order it. But I always enjoy it when I do get it. It taste somewhere between calamari and geoduck. It's interesting!
I also like the 'water' crab congee and the chi chow congee here. This is an interesting dining destination.
