When we travel to Toronto, we like to stay at the Toronto East Radisson. It’s not because it’s clean, or high class… it’s rather worn down, and disguising. But, it is really close by to residential area where my family lives, so it makes it an ideal location. It is okay anyway – since we’re never in our hotel room.
We were in Toronto visiting family a few months ago, and we tried this Chinese – Hakka food near our hotel. We read reviews about it, and all the reviews stated that the food was good, but the place is really dirty.
We ordered deep fried wings, Hakka noodles and Hakka Tofu. The noodles and wings were really well done, and it sure was a different taste than the usual “Chinese” noodles. The tofu dish was good, however, I don’t think the tofu of ours tasted quite right… and the Chinese mushrooms were a bit off. it was full of garlic flavor, but it was still good.
The noodle dish is what we described as “XO sauce” taste, without the spice. It was very unique, and their choice for noodles made it a great experience.
The portions were quite large, and the prices were reasonable. I would return – as it is good and convenient! Lin Garden Restaurant does open quite late, which adds to the convenience!

We took a nice trip out to Banff, Alberta after passing through the beautiful Canmore, AB and hiked Mount Grotto, and saw the amazing frozen waterfall.
We were hungry, and was looking for a quite place to sit down and eat. We came across Le Beaujolais, and had their daily special – rack of lamb. I had the smoked salmon sandwich with a side a fries, and the french fries were the best fries I’ve ever tasted. It was crisp on the outside, tender and juicy on the inside. Even after the fries were cold at the end of the meal — it was still wonderful!! These french fries do not turn soggy and droopy after time, like some of the fast food places we’ve encountered.
We definitely will return next time we’re in the area!! We have lots of favorite places to eat and experience in both Canmore and Banff!
