One night in September, Collin and I decided to go out for dinner, as he worked hard in the morning and was too tired to cook. It was still nice day continuing, and walking was great to do, heading to the restaurant.

We went to 29th Ave Cafe. They serve Japanese Yoshoku (Japanese-style western food) and are located on Boundary Road. Yoshoku includes cutlet, deep-fries, curry, etc.

We ordered from their menu. I don’t think they ever changed the menu. 🙂

Pork Cutlet (Tonkatsu)

He already started pouring Bulldog sauce. 😀 He ate chicken cutlet on the previous day, and he still ordered cutlet! :O It shows how much he likes it!

Chicken Cream Korokke (croquette)

Well, I can’t blame him, either. I ordered deep-fried as well. I always wanted to try something else but ended up ordering this. It’s that good for me! My mom used to say creamy croquette is difficult to make because the stuff inside would always be popped out.

I like the half size of lettuce head, coming with the fried. We should eat food in a balance, and their entrees consist a great balance of nutrition, in my opinion.

Custard Pudding

We both ordered this. I didn’t think he would order, as he actually ate deep-fried prawns as an appetizer before the entree, but he did! (He dug in the fries right away, and I didn’t even have time to take a pic!)

As I always say, this restaurant serves consistent taste every time.

Collin came from the work and he wanted to eat anything but we can eat right away. It means he wanted to go out! 😀 As he hadn’t been to this restaurant, we decided to go. I had to take care of something for work on that day, so we left home a bit late and it was right on dinner time when we arrived. All tables were taken, and the server said it would be 15-20 min or so for a table available. We walked around and went back, and the restaurant was quieter.

The place is Hyoga Japanese Cuisine. It is a Japanese restaurant on Kingsway, close to Joyce Street. They serve Sushi and Japanese tapas like Izakaya dishes.

We ordered from their regular and special menu.

(7 pc of Seared Tuna Belly on bowl of Sushi Rice with homemade sesame vinaigrette, Small Salad, Miso Soup)

I wanted to eat this, and he told me to go for it. I liked this Donburi. The combination of Tuna belly and the vinaigrette was good.

Dynamite Roll and California Roll

These were his choice. At the end, there didn’t seem enough for him, so I told him to order one more roll.

Prawn Tempura

He is a prawn monster! He loves prawns.

Nasu Dengaku

Nasu Dengaku is Miso grazed eggplants. Some people may find it too sweet, and some people may find it too rich, but I like them.

He seemed to enjoy their food, so we will come back again.

My work is sometimes so busy and the other time not so much. On that day, it was a bit crunch time, and I didn’t have time (well, I didn’t want to make….). I decided to go out to get some fresh air and pick up some food for lunch.

Where I went was Shiosai Sushi Bar. It is close to Joyce Skytrain station. I’m glad they open even around 2 pm. Have I mentioned this before? There is a note on the door, saying they don’t have warm food, such as fried food.

I ordered from their daily menu. I thought Collin might want to eat when he comes back from work, so I ordered more than one serve.

Snack Combo
(1 Salmon, 1 Tuna, & 1 Prawn Nigiri & 4pcs California Roll)

They always put huge Avocado piece, and I really like that!

With this much, it cost less than $10. As I mentioned before, their price is quite reasonable and Sushi tastes fine and consistent.
