comments: yes. that's right Greg Chan got married last night!!! click the pic for a shot of the happy couple. the beef wellington was extraordinary last night. so good. and they gave me some leftovers to eat today.

jarlsberg cheese and tomato on a bagel
from: Benny's and his house
rating: &&&&&/&&&&&
comments: porkchop is an old friend who used to help me wrangle children. he was good at it, but I was better. I met him for lunch today. here's what he had to say about his lunch, "it was great. my parents payed for the (jarlsberg) cheese and tomatoes and the bagels were free" you see, he gets deals from places he used to work or know people who work there. he seems rather skilled at it. ok, now click the pic and see the mexican president!

here's another shot I got of President Fox.

click for giant pink bunny!
pork chop suey
from: Hong Kong Chinese
price: $5.30
rating: &&&.8/&&&&&
listening to: Soundgarden - jesuschristpose
comments: I had some trouble with my ordering today. since I loved the porkchop in my soup the other day, I wanted to try the chop without the soup. so I saw "174 - pork chop something" written on the wall. so I went up and ordered it, "pork chop suey" then I realized the chop went with the suey, not with the pork. bah. it was just triple delight minus the prawn and chicken. or, I guess you could call it, "single delight". it was still good, though. not as good as triple delight, but good. now click it and look at the bunny erin wants to go see. someone take her there. you got 20 years to complete this mission.

and greg's last lunch as a single man ever:

I'll just give you greg's quote:
"The last meal, &&&&/&&&&& I went beef today, cause I'm not feeling chicken, I'm feeling beef. 2nd time in a row no-mosa, this becoming a little bit of a problem. I'm feeling a little stressed today and the naan was great to dap the sweat from my forehead. I used Craggs naan cause he's at a meeting and eating your own sweat-naan is gross."

I never did get to Norway, I never did get out your way

spicy pork on rice with salad roll
from: A-1 Vietnamese and korean
rating: &&&/&&&&&
listening to: Mohawk Lodge. they sound pretty good. the lead singer was in the back seat of our car in toronto for a bit.
comments: lunch was a little dissappointing today. I wanted combo 3. it has delicious pork and a salad roll. but the guy tried to get me to change my order to beef. I guess they didn't have the pork they needed for combo 3? but they had the spicy pork. which is good. but not great. :( oh well. In other news, I'm obsessed with twoheaded turtles. eric clipped a newspaper pic of one for me, then I started thinking that it must be pretty rare. upon searching the internet, I came to realize it's not nearly as rare as it was in the past. must be all the pollution. there's lots now. Kathy's Freaky Farm has 3 of them!!! I'm a little suspicious of all this.

and eric had:

from: Hong Kong Chinese
price: $4.82
rating: &&&&/&&&&&
comments: eric is the person who turned me onto this beefnegg on rice. he also claims that he introduced me to orderin it 'spicy'. I'm not too sure about this part. I think I told him about having it spicy. but I'm not sure. maybe he did tell me. I know he told me about the dish, but the spicy? the debate continues... in the meantime, here's a lot of turtleheads:

a green plastic waaaaatering can.

hi I like pork
pork chop and noodles in soup
from: HK Chinese
price: FREE!!! (customer appreciate reward)
rating: &&&&/&&&&&
listening to: radiohead
comments: most people would not like the idea of a breaded porkchop gettin all soggy swimming in soup. but I do. and it's delicious. I really like it. I wonder if they have a dish with un-soggy porkchops? because the porkchop was very tasty. all garlicy and stuff. yummy. and if you click the pic, you will see the mystery boots. who's boots are they and what are they doing here? you tell me!

and erin had:

salted fish delish.
from: HK Chinese food
price: $7.44 ( I think )
rating: &&&&/&&&&&
comments: erin enjoyed her saltyfishfriedrice... "except the chicken was white and bland and dry. i ate two pieces and skipped the rest of the chicken. i got 3 meals out of yesterday's lunch though!" I was upset because she didn't share it with me. I'll see you in court.

no one wants to hear what you dreamed about unless you dreamed about them.

sad news
3 items - something, something else and some other thing.
from: Yi Kou Xiang Delicious Foods
price: $4.82
rating: &&&/&&&&&
listening to while eating: Built to Spill - Perfect from Now on.
comments: bad choices with the 3 items today. the chicken was very good. it made up for the rest. the celery-type stuff with fishballs in it was really not a great choice. I don't know why I did it. I just did. it looked fresh. and the 3rd item was tripe, I think. it wasn't that bad, but I'm not the biggest tripe fan. I asked her what it was and she said "beef something r other" I didn't quite hear. so I just ordered it. it's not bad, for tripey type stuff. a lot of chewing was involved. and some sad news today, Inspector Gadget has died. Click the pic for deets.

and Craig had:

Italian Deli Sandwich
from: MacDonald's
price: $5.34
rating: &&&.5/&&&&&
comments: Craig said, "While the meat was pleasantly savory, the excess of Italianess dripping off the 'Assorted Italian' was a little off-putting." I don't think anyone should order these sandwiches from McDees. it's just bad. or make sure you stop them from pouring all that sauce on. and the link under the pic was a very interesting article that craig showed me. I should try to get one of these things in my Charger!

my blog, no rules.

good lunch. pho, yo. from that place on 10th ave. I don't feel like getting everyone's ratings and reviews, so just enjoy the pics. see if you can find my lunch, erin's lunch, jacky's lunch, sherry's lunch and the famous usual anonymous's lunch.

I'd like to thank Mr. F. for realizing why I needed to censor the photo of the mystery woman at the dumpster the other day. if youo click on hiroko's lunch here, you will find out why I need to be so secretive.

lunch in the park days will soon be over.

combo c - cali roll, chicken teriyaki, udon
from: Osaka Sushi
price: $7.44 (I think)
rating: &&&&/&&&&&
comments: lunch in the park again. this combo rules. it's even good in the park because everything's individually packaged.

and Brian had:

tuna sashimi and miso soup
from: Osaka Sushi
price: $8.01
rating: &&&.5/&&&&&
comments: Brian enjoyed his small, yet expensive lunch. he was upset that the girl made him pay the penny. that's just not right. here's what he had to say about the food. "it was excellent, although the presentation could have been better. The lettuce garnish was a little limp. The tuna was tasty, very melt in the mouth... however it did seem recently defrosted. who's the chick with the pint of guinness on her head?" that last line was taken a little out of context. click the pic to see the mystery person looking through the garbage. what could she be looking for?

butter chicken and yoghurt curry with samosa
from: Curry Point
price: $5.87
rating: &&&&.4/&&&&&
listening to while eating: The Lonely Goatherd - Julie Andrews
comments: aaah, the curry. greg was right, it is good dipping the samosa into the curry. it was so good, I had to make music. yeah.

and Mr. Hyatt had:
float on float on alright
Chicken Caesar
from: Pita Pit
price: $5.26
rating: &&&/&&&&&
comments: Ian says, "meat was cold, under sauced, bottom of the bucket veggies. pita pit let me down but I'll give them another chance. I think the pita pit guy liked alex his pita looked better." but really, who doesn't like Alex?

meanwhile, back at the village...

from: Hong Kong chinese food
price: $5.30
rating: &&&&.7/&&&&&
comments: back at work. that's not good. back at the village. that's good. I'm sure I'll get bored of it all soon enough, but after a month, the beef n egg on rice really hits the spot. mmmm... and if you click the pic you will see erin standing on a glacier.

and greg had:

from: Curry Point
price: $5.87
rating: &&&&/&&&&&
comments: greg says, "you know what is awesome? dipping your samosa in curry, biting it and getting butter chicken/yoghurt/peas& cheese on your face. This lunch could have been a 4.5 but no samosa means I got denied the right to get curry on my face" clicking this pic will show you a blurry shot of melvin in the rockies. enjoy.

behind in my posts. here's the rockies.

from: Spooners in Jasper
price: too much. but hey, it's Jasper. everything's too much.
rating: &&&.7/&&&&&
comments: we ate panininis and soup in Jasper. we had a lot of driving ahead of us so we ate fast. we had had a big breakfast with Laura in Edmonton. at Uncle Albert's. it was ok, but it was no Bert's. Laura needs a breakfast place closer to her house. if anyone know of one, tell me. she lives near Jasper St. 111th or 97th, or something. I forget already. if you click the pic, you will see the raven who we did not give any lunch to.

and erin also had:

paninininis and soup
from: Spooner's in Jasper
rating: &&&&/&&&&&
comments: erin's sadnwich was way better than mine. mine was some roast pork or something, and hers was veggies and goat cheese. a little too much goat cheese, she said. but just enough for me. mmmm... goat cheese! wonder if they get it from the bighorn sheeps in the rockies there?

and bloolooloo had:

butterflies and other flies
from: the road
price: priceless
rating: &&&&&/&&&&&
Bloolooloo, the Blue Allure, erally enjoyed the bugs it got to eat. it had some delicious dragonflies on the trip, but these two butterflies was it's favourite meal all trip. I think they were from somewhere in alberta, but it's possible they were from Montana. either way, what a treat!

ho, ho, ho (not santa, the other ho ho ho-er)

pad thai and green curried chicken n eggplant n stuff
from: Sa Bai Thong Thai Food in Madison
price: enough. but not too much.
rating: &&&&.2/&&&&&
comments: this was a pretty great restaurant. we didn't know what to expect in Wisconsin's capital. the food was above average. and the service was terrific. the chicken was a bit rubbery, though. click the pic to see what the capital/capitol building looks like.

and here's the restaurant:

and you can click the pic and try to guess which figure is ten times larger than the other. hint... think green.

bic mac n fries

Mitzi's sister oh the time has come...

eggs benny
from: Mitzi's sister on Queen near Sorauron in Toronto
price: $11.95
rating: &&&&/&&&&&
comments: damn fine benny. the sauce could have been better but the bacon made up for that. such good bacon. some kinda fancy bacon. I forget what they called it. like back bacon. very good. and their hoemfries were sensational. if it was a little less expensive, and I little tasty holladaise, I'd rate it a 5.

and erin had

french toast
rating: &&&&/&&&&&
comments: good french toast. erin says the apricot saucey stuff was a little too much. rather tart, I daresay. but with the whipping cream I thought it was pretty tasty. and the bread was super thick challah bread or something.

and me, erin and aleysa all shared:

oatmeal pancakes with fried banana
rating: &&&&&/&&&&&
Mitzi's (we left there because it was too busy) and Mitzi's Sister are famous for their pancakes. and rightly so. these things are soooo good! the pancake is all crispy outside and soft inside, and the bananas and whipped cream make it perfect. I'm glad I didn;t order just this as my meal, though. it seemed a little small for me. but maybe it's denseness would make up for that.

click the pics for other shots from our day around t.o.

the tee dot

toronto street meat (spicy sausage-dog)
from: vendor at Queen and Spadina (in Toronto)
price: $2
rating: &&&&&/&&&&&
comments: the hotdogs of toronto are sensational. it's like the vendors battle to see who can have the most fixings. and they're cheap. very, overall, they kick ass on the hotdogs I have on the NY streets. and if you click the pic, you can see what a great view of the CN Tower I have from my Aleysa's terrific apartment.

erin, aleysa and I also had:

vietnamese subs!
from: the vietnamese sub shop on Spadina
price: $1.50 each
rating: &&&&.8/&&&&&
comments: this sub may have been better that the Vancouver ones I always get. really, it was about the same but the bread was better. if it was spicy, I probably would have given it a 5. I think Erin and Aleysa enjoyed theirs, too. and if you click the pic, you can see Aleys'a fella, Andy, working away on StarTV. he was kind enough to give me a short tour of the CityTV building (the tour was short because he's only worked there two days so far.)

anyone know where corningware comes from?

burrito, taco and beer
from: Cantina (in Corning, New York)
price: I forget. but really? is it relevant? does it matter? no.
rating: &&&&/&&&&&
comments: this was a pretty good lunch. very filling. the guy apologized for making my shredded pork burrito too big. and it was too big. it was huge. so I ate it. and liked it. yum. Corning, NY is where corningware comes from. so what do they have there? a glass museum, of course. we didn't see the museum. it was too expensive for me. but we did go into the huge giftshop. there were some amazing glass creations there. truly amazing.

and erin had:

two hard tacos and corn chowder
from: Cantina
rating: &&&/&&&&&
comments: I'm assuming erin's rating on this one, as she's not here right now. she liked the tacos. she didn't much care for the soup. it was crazy salty like. I think it was made of about 70% cheese. before arriving in Toronto, we made a brief stop at Niagara Falls. Just on the American side. I hear it looks more impressive from the Canadian side. it's good to be back in Canada.

the big apple bites back

ny street meat (hot dogs)
from: this guy
price: $1.50 (for the pictured dog)
rating: &&&.5/&&&&&
comment: good for the price, but not an amazing hot dog. we had other hotdogs later from another vendor. not nearly as good at this one. and if you click the pic, you will see that we ventured onto the NY subway system. NY is very big and there's too much to see in 2 days. ack.

and for dinner I had:

porkchop with onion and mashed potatoes
from: Jones cafe on Great Jones road in Noho
price: $14.95
comments: this was a damn good pork chop. damn good. and there was salad, too. overall a great meal for very weary travelers. we had spent all day walking and subwaying our way around the city and we were beat. and if you click the pic, you will see that Melvin Peterson had a very hard time hailing a cab in Times Square.

bad news for bucket... by the time we got here it was closed. :( no shirt. sorry. I failed my mission.
