My friends recently got on my case for only covering Japanese restaurants. It’s fortunate I do actually eat at other places! This review will be about a restaurant located in Markham on Main Street.
Recently, I had the pleasure of going to Zen again to try more of their menu. WARNING: Long post ahead! The pictures are pretty nice though, so just read the parts that you want to read.
My parents used to take me to J-Town to reward me for good behaviour. I always loved this place — not too large, but it felt a little bit like a culinary playground with its amazing bakery, curry, meat shop, sushi stand, and mini-fish market. On this trip, we ended up scoring some amazing lunch specials at the meat market (WAGYU BEEF DON) and By the Sea.
I remember when this spot used to be a Wasabi… anyways, this place is a little like Day and Night, but it’s cheaper, is less high class, and has no foie gras on the menu. But sometimes a strange combination of AYCE plus a special menu item is all you need to sate your appetite.
Went back to O.M.G. recently for dinner. Needless to say: as a food blogger, I feel like it’s important to know when I had the wrong feeling about a restaurant.
Went back to Shiso Leaf Cafe recently for a celebration, only to find several upgrades to their menu!
Disclaimer: Regrettably, no pho was consumed in the making of this blog post. I didn’t look at the name of the restaurant before going in, or else I would have totally ordered pho! Oh well; live and let learn.
More posts in the Markham area! More of Market Village, the place I used to frequent all the time! Yes, when I’m not downtown I don’t go out to eat as much. Still happens though, and it’s time I reviewed this place.
Okay after seeing this on the Chinese channel and noticing the name I pretty much had to go to this HK-style Western restaurant. It fits nicely since I’ve been covering this area recently anyways. Onward!
Taste of Japan seems to be a very common name for Japanese restaurants in North America. Just search it up on google!… Anyways…
