229. erotic city come alive


This is how I want to dress up my boyfriend. + other Burberry trenchcoats. + damier graphite bags. + shiny Tom Ford suits with pocket squares!



Obligatory Pravda pic. I went there again last thursday - fun night! They had a bunch of balloons there..maybe left over from the New Year's party? At first I went with a friend from my building, who left after awhile. Then my friend and her Bulgarian friend came by. I also saw this guy I knew who has a suit store + his friends..I think they are very curious with what I do in my life lol. I think next time I see them I should make it clear they're wrong. (Not sure if you know what I'm talking about..)


After Pravda, we dropped by Irish Embassy and met some Brits with nice English accents. After that, I went with my friend's friend for some late night food at Fran's. Stuffed myself with a poutine. Then got home around 4am..when I walked into my lobby the fire alarm turned on! When the alarm is on, the elevators are down. So I just sat there for awhile waiting for it to end..was not going to use the stairs. At least I got to see a bunch of firemen lol.

People usually stay in their rooms during our fire alarms but that night I met someone new in my building. An 18 year old kid from Saudi Arabia..apparently he's here to learn English and go to university. Don't remember the last time I met so many foreigners in one night hahah.


The weather was unusually warm last friday so I took a walk down to the harbour with Hennessy. I used to come every night in the summer! I missed it.


The most gorgeous sunset ever!! This was taken with my Blackberry by the way..in person it was much more amazing.


Polar Bears @ Irish Embassy aka one of the only shots I can handle.


Friday night dinner with my friend at Guu! This place is always ridiculously busy..after two failed attempts in the past to get a seat, we finally made it into their Sakabar location on Bloor West. I've heard lots of good things about this place before and I actually really loved it!! The atmosphere in there is crazy/fun.


We got way more food than we could even finish but it was all delicious. I'll attempt to describe everything we ordered, for those who are interested:

Kinoko Bibimap ($8.8): rice, mushrooms & cheese with seaweed sauce in sizzling stone bowl.
I loved this a lot! The rice has a bit of a different texture than normal rice..like kind of soft and sticky. Didn't really taste the cheese. Will definitely order it again next time.


Gyu Shabu Salad ($6): shabu-shabu beef on greens with sesame dressing
I usually don't eat a lot of meat but the beef in this salad was delicious! It was really soft/tender and went really well with the dressing. This was one of my favourite things that we got. Will order it again next time too.

Edamame ($3.5): steamed soybean with seasalt
This is kind of self-explanatory. Edamame tastes more or less the same everywhere. I like how they gave a huge portion though.

Chicken Tortilla Pizza: This one's not on their menu - it was something they only had that night. It tasted so strange and was probably one of the worst things I've ever eaten. Maybe I'm being too extreme lol..but it basically tasted like a mixture of chicken and some type of fish.



Takoyaki ($5): deep friend octopus balls with tonkatsu sauce & karashi mayo
Normally I wouldn't ever eat octopus but I decided to try one of these balls. I didn't like it that much, but I think someone who likes octopus/seafood might like it?

Karubi ($6.8): sweet & spicy miso grilled short ribs
There were 5 thin pieces of this in one order..very good!!

Agedashi Tofu ($5.5): deep friend tofu in dashi broth
I really really liked this. I think my review of our food is a bit biased though, since I'm not a huge meat eater. The broth was very good. Will order again next time.

Karaage ($6.8): deep friend soy sauce marinated chicken with garlic mayo
This tasted like regular fried chicken to me. Apparently it's the third most popular thing on their menu though. It's good if you like fried chicken..we ended up taking like all of this home though, since our stomachs were bursting by that time lol. Don't think I'll get it again just because it was way too fried.

& a few more things that are unpictured:

Kakimayo ($7.2): baked BC oyster with mushrooms, spinach and garlic mayo topped with cheese
I only tried a little bit of this because I don't like oysters but if you do, it's very delicious. Very creamy and filling.

Black Sesame Ice Cream ($4): I'm like a black sesame ice cream connoisseur (hahah) but I didn't taste any black sesame in this one. Just tasted like flavourless ice cream. Maybe I have strange taste buds because my friend thought it had a strong taste.

---

I think that's all we ordered. It was way too much food for two people though..I think 6 different things would've been enough. Totally slipped into a food coma. But I really liked it..all their foods are very unique and not too expensive. Will have to go back soon!

& also, thank you Ron for putting my link on your blog!! You guys should all click here & check out his blog :D
