Address: 680 Silver Star Blvd., Unit R306-R310, Scarborough (Steeles & Midland)
Phone: (416) 321-6822

when LG first went into the restaurant, his 1st comment was "it's like the restaurant in Guangzhou (廣州)".. i guess it was the decor & the atmosphere giving him this impression..

酸辣湯 Hot & Sour Soup $3.95
..this was good.. with both spicy & sour taste..

蟹粉小籠包 Dumpling Crab & Pork Meat $7.99

奶油津白 Braised Chinese Cabbage with Cream Sauce $8.95

苔條黃魚 Crispy Fish with Seaweed $12.95 was strange that it came with Salad dressing.. last time i had it in Ala they gave us Ketchup.. both were weird.. i remember when i had this in Vancouver, we had fish sauce (魚露) instead.. that's authentic.. miss it so much!!
擔擔麵 Soup Noodles with Spicy Sauce $4.99
..LG likes the noodle.. said the "texture" was good.. but i don't like the soup base.. didn't really like the soup base for 擔擔麵..
hmm.. i will still be looking for authentic Shanghai Food..

3 Days Mont-Tremblant Tour - Day 1

Date: October 4, 2008 (Saturday)
Day 1

it was a chilly weekend, & we went to Mont-Tremblant.. (which made it even colder!!)

our first stop was at Upper Canada Village.. it's a Heritage Park where brought us back to the 1860s' life.. & the staff there are all wearing the 1860s' costumes, & "pretending" to be living the 1860s' life..

Broom-maker's House
..they made brooms to generate additional family income..

Cook's Tavern & Livery
this is the old-times 「客棧」(inn).. the taven keeper offered accommodation, food & beverages..

there is a price-list posting up telling u how much for lodging, meals, & livery..

i took a pic of this table becoz we have a similar folding table in hk too!!

Crysler Store
it's like a small department store.. with all kinds of goods, e.g. tea, sugar, spices, & medicines..

the bakeries in 19th century used to produce bread in large quantities to sustain railway, canal, & other itinerant workers who were fed on the job.. but they still make bread daily now..

visitors can travel on a horse-drawn Wagon..

we saw black pigs inside the Loucks Farm..

after visiting Upper Canada Village, we went straight to Mont-Tremblant.. we stayed in Fairmont Tremblant.. it's great & with a nice view!

after checking-in, we started looking for places to have some light food (as we won't be able to have dinner until 9pm!) the guide recommended this Crepe place to us..

Creperie Catherine
Phone: (819) 681-4888

they have all these colorful & cute cartoons as decor..

we ordered a Dessert Crepe to share among us four.. it's big enough for sharing!
Catherine Crush.. with Crepe, Sucre A La Creme, Banana, Ice-Cream, Whipped Cream & "Crunch"

for dinner, we had the FANTASTIC Surf, Turf & Sushi Buffet @ Fairmont Hotel.. it was fully-booked.. & since we didn't make reservation, we have to wait until 9pm before they could accomodate us.. but it's worth the wait!!!

the crab legs & oysters were very fresh.. & there 2 diff types of smoke salmon & both tasted good! LG said the prime rib was great too!

the buffet is available every Friday & Saturday from 5:30pm-9:30pm, at the Windigo Restaurant.. reservation is highly recommended!!
