We arrive to Milestone at Market Mall to celebrate my mom’s birthday. It was nice, as the mall offers underground parking, which makes it really nice to go and enjoy a meal when it’s not so nice outside.
The environment was very upscale, and the food is decent. Between the 4 of us, we ordered very different dishes and had cajan shrimp diane, which was a generous portion of shrimp over rice.
We ordered their Seasonal feature which was fettuccine, and that was pretty delicious, with hand cut fettuccine, it was pretty fresh and tasty.
We ordered their lamb sirloin, which is a good portion of meat with some potatoes and season vegetables.
pacific coho. The Pacific Coho was really over cooked when it first arrived, and we did send it back to have a better cooked piece of fish. It was nice of the restaurant to be accommodating.
Even though we were celebrating a birthday, we were too full to enjoy a dessert.

I set foot in a Mucho Burrito for the first time today (Cinco de Mayo), and they conveniently had a special going on for a medium burrito for $5!! So, I tried the Medio – 12″ Pan Seared Tilapia on white tortilla.
Of course, in competition, my other half had a Mucho XL Burrito Barbacoa – Marinated beef, slow cooked and shredded on white tortilla.

Bubblemania is a place where I have been going to for many years now. They offer decent wings for a decent price. A new thing that is very handy, Bubblemania Cafe now accepts Visa & Mastercard! Before, they only took cash. Wing nights are now Mon to Thurs 2-7pm 28¢ Wings!
My favorite drink is either the pineapple or lychee green tea – COLD, with nothing in it. I’m actually not a fan of the “bubble” or the tapioca, as I tend to choke on it. Their drinks are quite good, but I must say — I think most of them are made from powder also! I’m a much greater fan of fresh fruit smoothies, but I risk the fruit not being in season.
We love ordering snacks from here, as they have amazing wings, they also have a ton of snacks and almost meal like food. We really haent’ tried anything that we didn’t like, we even enjoyed their Calamari!

Chinese food at it’s best! I like going here for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and all meals in between! For this particular instance, we went almost as a midnight snack, as we picked up people from the airport on a late flight. Their food is a little greasy, but it makes it look pretty and it tastes good too. It’s not overwhelmed by grease.
There is a wide array of options on the menu, so I’m sure you’ll find something for any appetite. I personally really love the shanghai noodles, but that’s just me and Chinese food. They do an excellent job at making it — but it’s a dish that is relatively simple.
Dinner at Sun Chiu Kee is really good, be sure to check out the dinner review too!

Everyone loves a nice bowl of Vietnamese Noodle Soup! I work on Macleod Trail in the South, and it was to my excitement everyone there loves to go to Rice For King. I liked it there so much, I’ve been back even outside of work hours! Rice For King offers an extensive selection on their menu, and they are very accommodating to their customers request.
I love the Beef Ball Noodle soup, I think it’s one that is hard to goof up on. My husband usually takes the rare beef Pho, and we both enjoyed our soups. The broth was nice and flavorful, even without putting extras in the soup.
I’ve never tried their salad rolls, but all my co-workers rave about them! They say it’s definitively better than going to Co-op a few doors down!! So, that means I will be back to try more items on their menu.
I love the way this restaurant takes their branding so seriously, and everything has it’s custom “K” on it. I use to think only restaurants who were about to take pictures of it would do that, but Rice For King does it for every dish!
I was just there a few days ago as well, and I got the Bun – Rice Vermicelli Bowl with Grilled Pork and Spring Rolls. I don’t have a picture of it, but I dcan assure you, it was large, and plated really nicely, and it also tasted good. The Fish Sauce that they use is really quite flavorful! I love how they use square plates, its a little different but they try to incorporate their logo onto everything they present to their customers.
