I ordered the pulled chicken with basil mayo sandwich at Black Camel today and it was meh. The chicken and basil mayo sandwich had been my favourite sandwich there 4 or 5 years ago…
Nice individual-sized coffee-flavoured mousse cake from Delyssée $10.95 before tax, when the same kind of mini mousse cake might cost $7.50 -$8 atat Nadege or $8.10- $8.95 at Bomou. I haven’t been to Rahier in a long time, so not sure how much their mousse cakes cost.
I think the pesto mayo changed, with less basil ,and the maybe the chicken was under-seasoned.
I could have sworn it was called basil pesto previously, and not pesto mayo. Maybe I’m misremembering, or they stopped using the basil mayo and replaced it with pesto mayo. That might be the issue.
It was really bland.
I tried the tempura udon, futomaki and inari at Sushi Maido in the Annex last night. I’d asked about the sushi places in the Annex 5 or 6 years ago, and jennabeans on CH had recommended Sushi Maido over the others. It was quite full around 9 pm on a Friday, and the staff were friendly.
I used to go to Sushi on Bloor, New Gen and Sushi Inn (in Yorkville, but the same kind of sushi place) from around 2002-2010 fairly frequently, but I haven’t been to any of the Annex places between Spadina and Bathurst in the last decade.
I also visited Sushi Island AYCE on College St at least once. I became a bit fussier about sushi around 2010, and usually chose Japango or Yuzu No Hana when downtown.
I liked what I ordered at Sushi Maido, and the prices were reasonable. I was in the mood for udon.
Well, we’re not sure what to call this place. The sign says Bombay Frankies, but the website corresponding to this name does not have the same menu. The website for Bombay Frankie has the correct menu, although they also call the restaurant Mumbai Frankie on the website. Anyway, we took out from the place on 1386 Gerrard St. E. They let us use our own containers.
I tried the Minute Steak Pita ($19) and the Bonsai broccoli (broccoli with a dill scallion dairy sauce) ($11) at Miznon. It was ready in 12 minutes. Maybe a little pricey, and the steak was a little fatty, but I enjoyed it.
