Actually, I didn’t get fried ice cream, I got some fried bananas with ice cream but they do have fried ice cream at the Honey Bee’s ice cream place in Dayton. And the fried banana ice cream was massive, it takes at least 2 person to finish it and even 3 would be just nice in my humble opinion. Only for $6, you can choose your toppings from chocolate to blueberries and as you can see , we had the blueberries. Yummy yummy in my tummy ! this summer, check out Honey Bee ice cream at Dayton if you are in town.
Attended a food event in the city during the weekend as we were invited to the event by some of the organizers there. It was a very popular event as you can see and I like the event venue as it was in the middle of the city with lots of parking. The event hall was packed and brightly lit with myLED High Bay lights I was told.
With such a big event hall, using these LED lights is really smart as they not only save money on utility bills cine they are energy efficient. And since they are long lasting, you won’t need to get them changed so often, therefore it’s maintenance efficient as well.
I like the fact that even with the event hall so bright and nicely lit, we didn’t feel like hot at all. Another plus for using LED high Bay lights I have to say , for most events that I’ve been too , are just so unbearable because of the heat the lights were giving out.
I did enjoy the event , despite the fact that there were tons of people around , thanks to a cool event hall – I cannot stress how important it is to make event goers like us stay a bit longer to have a nice, cool event hall.
We went to the Japanese restaurant in Little Brook again but this time, Karaoke was on our mind. If you didn’t know by now, the Japanese restaurant has a Karaoke room. Who doesn’t like singing around this area right? especially us Asians. I was told that I can get a good entertainment set here, so Mail your order today! if you love singing a lot and want your home to have some entertainment.
It was a very busy night at the restaurant even though we weren’t expecting it to be that busy. Jessica had some spicy miso soup to start with and I had the ordinary kind of miso soup.
Lots of seaweeds and tofu , unlike some Japanese restaurant that can be quite stingy when it comes to tofu and seaweed.
I ordered some mixed tempura and my g/f ordered a traditional little brook roll and I ordered something else as you can see here.
The mixed tempura only had one shrimp, so it wasn’t enough for all of us of course, we had 2 adults and 2 kids with us.
Some soft shell crab for appetizer , and it was yums !
And my g/f ordered another type of roll but this one was really spicy. Luckily for us, we were going for Karaoke, so we waited to eat it a little later with our Karaoke session. For those who loved singing , check out the Japanese restaurant at little brook.
My simple lunch series #6 is lunch at home because I had a sick kid. So a curry noodles from the Penang White Curry Noodles all the way from Toronto was what I had. So simple to cook and just nice for a cold day. You can put in anything you want , of course, I had veggies, some chicken and a hard boil egg to go with my noodles. So cheap, so easy to cook and so gooddddd!
Continuing with my Simple Lunch Series, here is some rice with mixed veggies and some shrimp and garlicky pork ribs for just $8 at the New Century Restaurant. I don’t like eating so much rice and had only asked ofr 2 pieces of pork ribs but they gave me more. The Zhu’s are really good to their customers.
Comfort food from home on a cold winter night like this really warms not only the tummy but the heart as well. The paste was sent from home and this is the Malaysian version of Hokkien Noodles with spicy chilli and prawn stock. I put in some veggies as well and shrimp and an egg to make the bowl of noodles a meal by itself. Because of how oily it is, I can’t eat more than a bowl but it was definitely yummy to the max.
Complimentary lotus roots soup came with my lunch today, and it was priceless. I would have paid anything for this bowl of soup and I had 2 bowls of it. I kept one for dinner of course. Soup was so goooodddd!
My lunch was fried noodles, with brocolli , fish tofu and mushroom. Yummy to the max, the noodles were too much for me. Loved my mushrooms, fish tofu, bean sprouts as well as broccoli.
My simple lunch today with rice are these squids from Su Lee & shrimps from the Zhu’s – how much ? didn’t cost me a cent. I provided the chilli sauce from home, some sambal paste from Tean’s and the Zhu’s cooked them up for me for lunch. It was so yummy! I had leftover to go with my supper as well.
Our Asian community might be small here but we do look out for each other.
It`s pretty awesome to have foodies from all over the world as your friends. And yes, I`m super blessed to have friends from all over the world send me food because they know I can`t buy the food over here in Yarmouth. So every month , I do get care packages from friends and family from all over the world because they must like me . heheh!
I have some teh tarik from home, some lychee jello for chloe .
And of course, some Assam fish paste for my assam fish curry. I also learned a new way to cook my assam curry and recently I`ve been experimenting more with my food. And yes, my kid and I are totally blessed with so many people to love us and take care of us.
Ì`m sure by now you all know how much I loved spicy food. And the spicier the better. So the Zhu`s at the New Century Restaurant tries every which way to help me with my lunch all the time. So today , I order some shrimp with curry and of course the veggies with some rice. Not too much rice but this was definitely spicy !!! good food ! yums!
PS : Be nice to the restaurant owners and you can get all kind of food. But of course, don`t be an asshole of an owner , like some people in some restaurant that we all know, else ppl will just stop eating at your place. If you can`t take constructive criticism than that will be your downfall. Your lost not mine – plenty of restaurants to eat from.
I don’t eat donuts because I’m diabetic but it doesn’t mean that other people cannot enjoy it especially my in – laws and my kid. PB didn’t eat any as well, I don’t know why he didn’t want any, I guess he likes his dad’s fudge a lot better. But if you are in Canada and there is a Tim Hortons, you can have your fill of all kinds of donuts. I don’t know if they are comparable to Krispy Kreme but they are definitely not bad at all. For a dozen, one only needs to fork out less than $8.00 if I am not wrong. But I do like my Tim’s coffee a lot and must have at least one a day.
Chloe loves the chocolate glazed donut or the double chocolate with sprinkles and there is the boston creme donut, maple donut , coconut creme, lemon and a lot more different flavor to choose from. Unfortunately, for me they are all very, very sweet and I cannot eat them. If I weren’t diabetic, you will probably see me stuff my face with them. Tim Hortons donut are good gifts to bring when visiting a friend or relative.
I wanted something different for lunch on the weekend and when I saw that the Farmer’s market had butter chicken, I had to get some. But of course, it was too early for lunch, so it was kept in silver foil for a few hours , thus it was kinda mushy after awhile. The rice and butter chicken was still warm when I ate it at 2.30pm and it was pretty good. The next time, I would separate the butter chicken and rice, so that the rice wouldn’t be so mushy.
I do like the butter chicken but it didn’t have the stronger taste that I’m used to and it wasn’t as spicy as I liked it. I prefer my butter chicken with chunks of chicken and since I use jasmine rice for my own butter chicken, I didn’t smell any jasmine in the one that I bought at the Farmer’s Market. But it was overall, a good lunch for $6.50 tax included. Would I get it again? definitely !
Watercress soup that were compliments from the chinese restaurant. Yummy to the max! I had so much rich food lately, I decided to order something light and healthy.
Some shrimps with beansprouts and rice. Yumms ! and super healthy!
Love the sign and love the humor. now if all eateries have a great sense of humor wouldn’t that be wonderful. Unfortunately, there is just one eatery in town who cannot take constructive criticism and thinks it is so funny that we refused to acknowledge them after they barged into our store and said that we tried to run their business down. So immature too ! and his only come back was that we should paint our store too????!!!??? Yes, very immature!
Anyhow, their lost coz’ we don’t eat there anymore because we refused to deal with idiosyncrasies. As far as my friends and I are concern, the owners, its store and food don’t exist. In all my years of writing a food blog, this tiny eatery is the only one who behaved so immaturely and utterly ridiculous!
I called this back to school breakfast. This was what I got PB to get me when we brought chloe back to school for a new year. There was no line up – Hallelujah! and don’t let my poor picture taking deceive you because the croissant with cheese and bacon was pretty darn good. The croissant was light and fluffy , I think I’m gonna be having a lot of BK breakfast from now on.
Sorry, I haven’t been showing you all the food I’ve eaten all summer, and don’t you worry, I still eat so well but because we’ve been so busy this summer, I hardly have time for showing off all the good food I ate.
But today, I did have one of the best fish burgers I’ve tasted and it’s from the Red Shed down the hill from where our store is. Love the fish, it’s lightly breaded and lots of fish as you can see and the bun is nicely toasted and it was so yums! only $6.00 tax included, one can never go wrong with a fish burger from the Red Shed.
So i finally got to try out the banana fried ice cream from Honey Bee’s near the Dayton Food Market and they not only have the fried ice cream, they also have hot dogs and sausage dogs now.
Sorry I didn’t take pictures of the hot dogs and sausage dogs that we had but both were very yummy in taste, although a little bit plain in my opinion. The banana fried ice cream was really good too and it had 3 bananas , hot fudge and a huge scoop of ice cream and cream on top. The sausage were $4 each and hotdogs at $3 each. Definitely, worth a trip to Honey Bee’s , I’m going again really soon.
So I had to try the appetizer when the Shanty advertised it on facebook and don’t be fooled by my picture taking skills, it is actually a lot lovelier than it looks and tasted even better.
I’m sure i would loved the samosas and they had lots of potatoes skins with cheese and bacon bits because the Cuban Croquet items weren’t ready. But I did get a taste of it and they had offered me more later if I wanted more. The cost of the platter was at $11.20 tax included but it was a little wait for it which I don’t mind at all because I met a lovely lady at the cafe while waiting for my take out.
The appetizer platter was a lot of potatoes to stomach, i had to leave some for the next day’s lunch.
In the many years that Jungle Jim’s had been in town, I never went for their Wacky Wings nite because I didn’t think I could eat a lot of wings. But today, with my kid and a g/f we decided that we should go and see what the hype was about. For $12.99, one can’t go too wrong right?
Since it was the first time that we are doing Wacky Wing nite, we didn’t know how it works. I’m glad we got our regular waitress and she quickly explained to us and took care of our order. If you are going for Wing nite, make sure you go early because it was quite a wait for food. I ordered some pepperoni and chicken wings but for every all you can eat wings , you have to order a drink of like $2.99. I had an ice lemon tea with my g/f – no sharing and the kid had an apple juice.
The kid ordered her own wings for $6.99.
While my g/f ordered some thai chicken bites
And french fries for the kid. I actually didn’t want her to have fries.
The kid loved the wings and the fries and ate quite a lot of the wings and fries.
Opps ! I was wrong, she had pepsi.
We had more wings.
Garlic baguette , only had 2 pieces as no one wanted them.
And here the kid and the g/f is choosing the best wings for themselves. I also had some garlic baguette and it was quite filling. Me and the kid’s meal came to $27 + tips , while the g/f’s was about $17 + tips. Would I go again? oh for sure but next time with more friends and definitely will be going earlier.
