Before you either:
a) Roll your eyes wondering why I'd be posting about mediocre looking food from China again (I thought we had stopped with this nonsense, you)
b) Run away screaming at the sight of the horrific photo
Let me explain.

Friend of mine has been patiently waiting for me to finally sit my ass down and write about the Alibi Room, so many apologies to him. And his anticipation is well founded, we had a great time at this restaurant (restaurant? pub? bar? eatery? gastropub? I don't know?), and on a beautiful summer evening, with an open patio and drinks, how could you not?

I was so excited! I completed my first pie, and it tasted amazing. Whenever I go off and attempt to bake something new, I spend far too long reading tips and steps, trying to combine what I think are the best of multiple recipes to come up with what I would believe the best. In this case, it was also my first time created a pie crust, so even more time was spent reading up for that as well.

Surprise surprise, my brother wanted to treat us spontaneously to a dinner. He had been here previously, and wanted us to give it a try. Ramies Greek Restaurant, near metrotown.
The menu appeared pretty standard for a Greek restaurant, although they did have a section of bbq's that you could order. It personally sounded a little strange to me, and I really did want to try some just to see how they came out, but opted for the Combo Platter - Chicken souvlakia, prawns, scallops, keftedes, dolmathes, calamari, served with greek salad, rice pilaf, roast potatoes, tzatziki and pita. ($43.95). Variety and quantity, yum. And hopefully quality as well.

It's been a while since my last recipe post. To be honest I've been a little reluctant to post them, just because taking pictures of all the steps slows down everything, and I'm always afraid I'll be dropping the camera into the batter. However, I do like taking pictures of the end products, which is why I'm posting up this Strawberry walnut loaf.

Guess who finally took a little trip down to La Taqueria Taco Shop? That's right~
Okay. Not quite. While I did come down here, it was my friend who was picking up something to eat. 3:30pm, Had my lunch, not ready to eat anything else. So, didn't really eat here. Which is a shame because I really. really wanted to try.

I know. Haven't posted in. Well. Forever. I have no excuse. I've been back for a while. This has been on the backburner for a least a week, so I guess I should finally post it up. A friend of mine wanted to treat me to a welcome back dinner, how could I refuse? DB Bistro, after passing it so many times in transit, visiting both Mistral and Thomas Haas (to the restaurants right and left), and walking past it multiple times, I was finally going to pay it a visit.
