When I don’t know what to eat, I order Chef #2 from the New Century Restaurant and this is half an order only because a whole order would be way too much for me to eat. Look at how much veggies I’ve got in this fully loaded crispy noodles at the bottom box. Brocolli , cabbage, water chestnuts, char siew and shrimp plus some carrots for color. I love the smell of the crispy canton noodles as well. For $8 – this could be my lunch and supper easily. Try it yourself and let me know what you think. New Century Restaurant is located on Main Street, Yarmouth.
I wanted some Pulled Pork bad and the closest joint is The Red Shed, so I decided to give it a try, afterall, I’ve had great success with the food from the Red Shed right?
I guess I was expecting something different, although it was still good, it wasn’t as messy as I expected, so dainty ladies out there, this may be a great pulled pork burger for you. With some coleslaw inside the pulled pork burger, the taste was different – not bad but different. I think I might have to get Pulled Pork burger from another joint and try out other burgers from The Red Shed.
The Red Shed is located at the Waterfront – you cannot miss it, so when you are in Yarmouth, don’t forget to check it out. Everyone’s expectations and taste buds are different, what I may not love as much, you may love it more. So don’t just go by my words, check it out for yourself.
PS : And the Red Shed does have some excellent food that I absolutely adore.
Yes, starting as of today, you can get real Japanese takeouts at Sip Cafe inside City Drugstore on Main Street Yarmouth. Woohoo! for those sushi lovers out there, you will be pretty happy with the food as well as the prices. There is quite a variety to choose from and the sushi are made everyday in the morning fresh and delivered to Yarmouth from Little Brook.
The folks from Kizuna took time to prepare and packed each box with extra wraps to keep the sushi moist and fresh and you can find chopsticks at the side of the cold open face fridge inside Sip Cafe. Generous serving of soya sauce and ginger as well as wasabi were added in the box. For $6.50, it was definitely not a bad deal at all, if you compare the quality of these sushi to the ones sold at Sobeys.
The maki course is good for lunch and has about 12 pieces in it, now more ginger would definitely be good though. Eating fresh sushi is important to all sushi lovers out there and this is as fresh as it gets.
There is also containers of seaweed salad.
And as far as I can see, this sushi is well received by the people in this town. Someone said it is quite addictive and I cannot agree more. So if you are looking for Japanese sushi in downtown Yarmouth, check out Sip Cafe @ No 1 Collins Street. Sushi is available as early as 11.30am in the morning till quantity last.
Singapore Noodles from New Century Restaurant on Main Street Yarmouth, opens everyday from 11am – 9pm. Singapore noodles is actually vermecilli a kind of rice noodles cooked with curry spices with veggies and shrimp. You can ask for less spice if you don’t want it to be too spicy, the owner & chef will accommodate your taste buds.
Singapore noodles is not from Singapore, we do not have this kind of dish in Singapore per se. I think folks who’ve migrated to the West invented this dish because Singaporeans like the Malaysians loved spicy food, so this is one way whereby we can have a good and decent spicy meal without costing a bomb.
I only ordered half an order for lunch because 1 order is too much for me, so if you only want a taste of it, you can ask the chef for half an order. For those cold days or days where you don’t know what to eat and don’t mind the spice, you can try this out. New Century Restaurant is located in downtown Yarmouth, 280 Main Street.
A healthy snack during the mid-day is awesome I found. Instead of eating junk or trying to get in lunch as soon as possible, I decided to take advantage of the good weather and went for a walk instead. After my walk, I had yogurt and some fruits as you can see above and I felt so good. Now if only I can keep at it, it would be awesome. I love to be able to eat healthy but I love food so much but that doesn’t mean that I have to stop eating but eat healthy sometimes too. You can find pre-packed fruit yogurt like these at Sobeys or Super store and they are not expensive at all, so try it out yourself.
Woohoo! Jungle Jims finally re-opened it’s door by a new management. It’s sad to see the old one go because they’ve always been very friendly to us. The new staff are all very young girls, in fact one of PB’s cousin is working there too. The decor are mostly new and they removed a lot of stuff and put in several new decor.
The restaurant smelled of varnish when we first entered but I guess it’s only the 2nd day of opening , so you’ll have to forgive them a little eh.
This is one of the new decor in Jungle Jims.
The menu changed a little and we only realized it after we ordered but no worries we figured, since we do go to Jungle Jims often. We were there before noon and it wasn’t so busy, so it was quite the bonus for us.
I had my usual breakfast with eggs and sausages with a side of bacon as well. Of course, I couldn’t finished everything but I had Hyunjin to help me with the food.
Bacon on the side.
And Hyunjin had the thai chicken from the special lunch. Overall, the service was ok but the staff are new, so I’m sure they just need a wee bit more time to learn about things. But the coffee isn’t great I’ll have to tell you and the next time I go there I’m bringing a cup of Tim’s.
Anything home-made is good as far as I am concerned. Even though I loved food from different restaurants, I cooked both meals for Chloe from home. Why? because she is a fussy eater. Since she haven’t had spaghetti for so long, I decided to make some home made chicken spaghetti for her, of course, I loved spaghetti too.
I chose minced chicken because both chloe and I do not like minced beef at all and we both loved mushrooms, the more the merrier. So there you go, very little preparation needed and spaghetti is cooked within 45 mins. I used Ragu sauce because that is what the lil’ brat loved. And there we had a good supper today. She asked for more and that’s what a mother wants to hear all the time right?
I’m so stoked ! I was tell the Zhu’s from the Chinese restaurant that I missed having watercress soup and ta-da! they ordered watercress from their supplier and made some watercress soup for me. I of course, shamelessly asked for another bowl. I wished someone sells watercress here in town, so that I can cook watercress soup myself.
Watercress soup is a soup that is very common from home. Watercress is sold everywhere back home and it is great for the internal health. Soup like these are so important to us Asians because they are said to not only is nutritious but also helps with one’s health. And yes, I missed having easy access to simple ingredients like watercress and lotus roots. If only they have an Asian grocery store here in town.
I’m looking forward to going home for a visit really soon and you can bet i’ll be having a lot of these soup at home.
Frozen yogurt in town!! woohoo! and we are addicted to it after our first try. There isn’t much flavors to choose from but there are at least 6 right now. Chocolate, Vanilla, Banana, Lime, Mango and Strawberry. And between Chloe & I, we’ve tried all the flavors, now what’s most enticing were all the condiments that you can put on top of your frozen yogurt.
Look at Chloe’s cup of frozen yogurt, besides fruits she had some M & Ms and gummy worms and sours and hot fudge and sprinkles and chocolate bits. The prices are not cheap either but it was worth it that’s for sure. Both kids and adults loved it as far as we can see. We have been going back every other day thus far. Frozen yogurt can be found on Starrs Road inside Manda Evelyn’s store. You can missed it.
Lunching with my girlfriends from the city can be a very interesting afternoon. We meet once a month in the city or in town for lunch and we talk about everything from work to politics and even creditor rights as some of my girlfriends are entrepreneurs in the city. I’ve always come back from lunching with these girls with new knowledge about what is going on around the world because they are so up to date with everything. I ordered the greek pizza but had actually craved for the tuscan pizza but ordered wrongly but of well.
Boston Pizza has this lunch special for a full plate of Jambalaya for only $11 for lunch, so I highly recommended this to my girlfriend from the city but she found it a little bit too spicy for her.
My lawyer g/f from the city ordered a salad.
And another g/f who works as a financial controller in the city ordered some calamari. We had a really good lunch – a 2 hrs lunch and went somewhere else for dessert after lunch. We really have a good time together even though it sometimes takes a long time to get together.
A few weeks ago, I wrote about Easter egg hunting for my girlfriend from Malaysia right? well, see what I found in Walmart today! yes, I had been hunting down the eggs for her, so was really happy that I found some that she might want.
Look at this huge Angry bird eggs but they are not all chocolate in them, they have stickers and all kinds of toys in this huge Angry bird eggs apparently.
Now these has stickers and candies.
This one has chocolates and stickers too. I wonder if they are the ones she wants. Let me check with her again.
We had promised Jessica to bring her out for brunch for the longest time and even though she would be very happy with just Macdonald’s, we decided to bring her to The Snack Place – 2 blocks down the road from our store. As you all know, we don’t have a lot of family here from my side, so Jessica is like a cousin from the East that Chloe never had. The kids play well together and Jessica is the nicest lil’ kid we know and her parents are of course, awesome people and like some parents that we know around here.
Jessica ordered a cheeseburger with fries and a pop from the children’s menu.
Hyunjin’s fish and chips but she opted for salad instead.
Jessica enjoying her little pop.
Salad for Hyunjin.
My brunch is of course the all day breakfast but without the fries.
Fish and chips for Chloe from the Children’s menu.
Bonding time with her “cousin”
Girls having fun.
Jessica with dessert .
And chloe licking up the yummy goodness. Good to see that Chloe has good friends to learn from.
I’m kinder eggs hunting for my g/f from Malaysia, she is looking for the Spiderman Surprise Eggs Marvel Kinder Bugs Bunny, Angry Birds, Marvel, The Avengers & Captain America. So we’ve been looking everywhere for them in hope that we will find them before easter and mail it to her.
As you can see the Easter egg kinders are in full force right now, I bought a few for Chloe already and she was tickled pink.
This is the egg hunt kit – wonder what is the difference.
And more eggs for easter hunt, this time with some new toys. So wish me luck while I go hunting for her – and even to Halifax if I have to.
Hunting season is not here yet but I do miss the deer meat, lucky for me, we have some frozen ones from the father-in-law who does hunt once a year. But with a Scouting Camera I think he has more fun just camping out and doing the man thing than shooting those deers for their meat. Hunting is such a big part of Canada and you see people taking time off from work just to go hunting.
How does the deer meat taste? pretty good actually and if you know how to prepare it, it is really very delicious. I used to have deer meat stir fried but now that I’m in Canada, the father in law loves making them like steak. I remember him trying to trick me into eating it but little did he know that I’ve always eaten deer meet in Asia. So if I miss my deer meat, I know where to get my fix.
I saw some Haddock Roe last week and had wanted to get some to try but my father in law – Budd, had it on the stove when we arrived on Sunday for a visit. It sure looked good but I didn’t try it but he said it was very good and fresh. Haddock Roes like any fish roes are a acquired taste, not everyone love it and it sure doesn’t look very appetizing before cooking them but it is really good.
Fry them up with a little corn flour and it’s ready to be tasted. Try it if you haven’t.
This is how the haddock roe looks like in the supermarket.
So you must be curious as to what trombone music has to do with my dinner. Well, i was invited to a friend’s place for dinner one night and she had asked if I could bring the lubricant that i had ordered for her kid online. So before dinner, her kid played the trombone and showed me how much better the trombone was working after using the slide lubricants. And believe me – I didn’t think that trombone can make such good music, I was really impressed and in awe. Check out an example below and tell me you are not impressed with it. But yes, i had an awesome dinner and some red bean soup with sesame glutinous rice balls for dessert.
Sorry a month late with this yummy pecan pie made by Aunt Helena for Christmas. I loved pecan pie and wished I could eat all of it but I can’t because I’m diabetic. But that doesn’t mean that life is over with me, it just means that I have to eat in moderation. So a bite I took of the pecan pie and I loved it. It was sweeeeet alright but so worth it. Nothing beats home made pie that’s for sure.
I swear food bloggers have so much fun! we get free food , food products to try and we also get to keep it and get paid for the reviews. Tell me how much more fun can it get right? Yes, I love blogging and if I didn’t I couldn’t have kept at it for this long, it’s not only because of the money or the free stuff and free food, I seriously love blogging and I’m really inspired to start vlogging soon. What do you think? should I vlog too?
Anyhow, my boss asked me to pick up a yogurt maker and since Chloe loves yogurt so much, I signed up for the assignment . I said to my boss – ME! ME! pick ME!!! hahhaha!! So I did pick one up during the week but I haven’t gotten to try it out yet because I’ve reviews I have to put up that I haven’t since before Christmas, so I’m gonna do that first and then come back to this. Hang in there and wait for the review eh.
Yes! a Canadian supplier for Asian food in Markham, Toronto! woohoo!! no worries about not being able to get food from home now. Well, not all the food that I want but at least some of the food that I’m eating. Shipping is reasonable and they are very quick with their services. Wen Ho Of Canada carries the Tean’s group of food that I’m currently eating now. They also carry the 3-in-1 tea from Aik Cheong and coffee as well.
4 boxes of food delivered within 1 week of ordering, now that’s pretty quick. I’m sure I will be ordering more food from them.
Last year during spring time, PB & I attended a spring wedding of an old college friend. And soon they are celebrating their first anniversary together and the birth of a new born baby as well. The wedding was in North Carolina and this website was where they went for all their wedding music and entertainment. The wedding was lovely, the music was great, the food was fantastic, everything just went so perfectly well.
We were invited again this year, to come visit them when the baby is born and since North Carolina’s weather is way better than ours here during Spring time, we might just leave for a week to visit them and take a break. The old friend of ours has a huge cottage in NC and we can make use of the cottage while we are there. But we are still contemplating if we can make it this Spring, maybe late Spring would be a better idea. Spring weddings are lovely but Spring babies brings so much joy to everyone.
