TenRen Tea Time (Revisit)

The $8.99 lunch combo of TenRen tea time 喫茶新饌 was terrible. We have decided to offer this restaurant a second chance. We tried the $14.99 regular combo again and it didn't disappoint us - great drink and great food!


Moxies is a restaurant that amazes us time and again - beautiful lounge, excellent servers, big burgers and interesting appetizers. Address: 159 York Boulevard, Richmond Hill. Tel: 905-764-9500. The steak was good, but the skew of shrimps surprised us. It's bursty and bouncy. I suspect that the shrimps were massaged with oil before grilled. The burger was juicy and huge. I wanted to finish it all, but I just couldn't. The white chocolate brownie is as good as before. Great job as usual guys! There was a little hiccup when we left the restaurant. The waitress said that we took both the merchant and customer copies of the credit card receipt, but we couldn't find the merchant's copy anywhere... We ended up re-doing the transaction. Just one single weird instance, I guess?

TenRen Tea Time

We went to TenRen tea time 喫茶新饌 for the new lunch combo at $8.99. We didn't taste any tea in our milk tea. The pork chop fillet was ultra thin. LoPo's crispy chicken was fine though.

Embassy Suite Niagara Falls - Christmas 2008

We had a fantastic Christmas getaway at Niagara Falls. The Embassy Suites Niagara Falls - Fallsview hotel is in a breathtaking location, just 100 yards from the bank of the incredible Niagara Falls. The fallsview suite was incredible. (I could stay in the room with LP for the whole day!) The hotel lobby is like a mini Bellagio! There was complimentary snacks and drinks at the manager reception, atrium lounge area outside the Keg restaurant. The snacks were jelly beans and nachos - all the kids gone crazy! The red wine was crappy that I flushed it down to the toilet. The beer was very reasonable though. Embassy Suites Niagara Falls offers complementary cook-to-order breakfast at the Keg to EVERYONE. We were told that the line-up would take half an hour, and were invited to the T.G.I Friday restaurant. There was water leakage from the ceiling that they needed a bucket to contain the yellowish water. The service was non-existent.

Hilton Niagara Falls - Christmas 2008

We went to Hilton Fallsview Hotel, Niagara Falls for the Christmas holidays. Good work as usual guys! The Watermark restaurant is the main reason to be there, as if we were on TV!
