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!

I went the other day to Thai Express for lunch. It was snowing, so I wanted something filled with spice to warm me up! I found myself standing outside the Thai Express in the Food Court of Chinook Centre to order the best Beef Tom Yum Soup I have had in a VERY long time!
The soup itself was really flavorful – spicy but flavorful (not just a bowl of spicy soup). I could see tomatoes, onions, spring onions, coriander and much more in the soup… and I could taste the fish sauce, and lemon grass used for the broth. They also gave a generous portion of beef as well. I would definitely return to Thai Express in a heart beat!

I made sweet and sticky chicken. Giada’s cookbook (Giada’s Kitchen: New Italian Favorites) calls for drumsticks, however I did my chicken with thighs.
