Great place for Bubble tea off Midland Avenue and McNicoll Avenue, Scarborough, Ontario. They do have 2 locations, but of course… I only went to one of them. We sat down for an “afternoon snack” and there were tables in there having “early dinners” and what not. It was neat! We started with just a slushie drink as it’s a nice light snack. The slush was very flavourful and we enjoyed the extensive menu!
We shared an order of their deep fried porklet, which was really crispy!
When we used to have a place kind of similar to this in Calgary, deep fried lobster balls was something I always enjoyed because it’s salty with a bit of sweetness and it always has a nice texture to me! These lobster balls was better than what Calgary can offer!
They do things from individual hot pot, to bowls of rice and we ordered a rice bowl which was a savoury and tangy with the pickled vegetables and the rice.
This was just a small snack for the 3 of us so that’s all we had! Off to the next stop for us!

We were in Toronto visiting family a few months ago, and we tried this Chinese – Hakka food near our hotel. We read reviews about it, and all the reviews stated that the food was good, but the place is really dirty.
We ordered deep fried wings, Hakka noodles and Hakka Tofu. The noodles and wings were really well done, and it sure was a different taste than the usual “Chinese” noodles. The tofu dish was good, however, I don’t think the tofu of ours tasted quite right… and the Chinese mushrooms were a bit off. it was full of garlic flavor, but it was still good.
The noodle dish is what we described as “XO sauce” taste, without the spice. It was very unique, and their choice for noodles made it a great experience.
The portions were quite large, and the prices were reasonable. I would return – as it is good and convenient! Lin Garden Restaurant does open quite late, which adds to the convenience!

One of my favorite sit down breakfast places would be Cora’s, and we got to go to the one in the South on 130th Avenue in Calgary on March 19th, 2011. Food was great, prices was great — with large portions!!
I ordered their Raspberry 4 Lucie and I think it’s very fitting. I used to get called Lucy a lot too… well, oddly I still do. Not sure why! Anyway, this breakfast was a thin crepe filled with raspberries and custard with cream cheese! It was amazing and not too sweet at all!
The other breakfast that we ordered was their Western-Cheddar crêpomelette which was a savoury crepe with ham, onions, red and green peppers, tomatoes, green onions and Cheddar cheese, covered in hollandaise sauce, served with potatoes and toast! Told you this was a big breakfast!
Overall, it was a fantastic time here. Always expect a long wait unless you’re very early!
