The Keg Steakhouse

I came here on a Friday night at 8ish, hoping that there would be less people there. Just like any other keg, it was packed, and we waited almost 45 mins to be seated. The area was very dim and it sets the mood for a romantic night out.Β 

I opted for my favorite filet mignon and ordered a Forbidden Fruit martini. The drink was really good; I especially liked the strawberry rock crystals along the rim on the drink. I would recommend this drink for girls, even those who do not regularly drink alcohol because the taste of vodka is barely there.Β

Kinton Ramen

3 words – too much hype.

I was recommended Kinton Ramen by a lot of people since the owner of Guu opened it (and I do like Guu).

We waited 1.5 hours to be seated in the restaurant, which felt like a small sized locker room. We sat by the bar and the chairs had no backs, so there was no place to put our jackets. It was also summer when we went, so it was really hot inside.

Raijin Ramen

On Christmas Eve, we settled for Raijin Ramen since it was practically the only restaurant open. I remember seeing a review from BlogTO but didn’t read much into it. Without much expectation, I ended up enjoying my experience at Raijin.

At 7ish, there was no one waiting for seats. The staff were nice and friendly – we were greeted and seated with free smiles which lasted the whole night πŸ™‚ By 8:30, more people came into the restaurant.

Zen Japanese Restaurant

I was recommended this place by a friend as it supposedly has “Toronto’s freshest sashimi”. I had really high hopes and it didn’t fail me!

The restaurant is quite small, and we sat by a table next to the entrance. Waitresses were attentive. I think they have timers for each table so they know when to check up on guests.
