Lavanderia - A Tale of a Lunch and a Dinner

My sister works at Victoria Park along with my best friend, so on a random Wednesday, I headed to Westmount to meet them for lunch.  The casual warm setting of Lavanderia was very relaxing.  I loved the calming colours and homey feel to the place as it does pay tribute to Chef Antonio Park's childhood home above his parent's Lavanderia or laundromat - Hence the name!



We started our lunch with a coconut fish broth soup served in these adorable little cast iron bowls.  The broth was full of flavour, creamy and smooth.  The chunks of potatoes were tender and soaked up the flavour of the broth perfectly.  I can see why my friend claims this is her favourite soup!



As my main, I opted for the grilled calamari.  A fresh made corn tortilla piled high with calamari and a light delicious mixed salad.  I was excited for this dish and dug right in.  I have to say, I expected the calamari to be significantly tender and carry that delicious charred flavour and it did, just the tenderness was …

Le Santal, the very best of St. Martin

Vacation time is always the best time.  Planning every part of your trip and then finally getting to experience everything you hoped for.  This year, my girlfriends and I planned a last minute spontaneous trip to St. Martin with a stop in Anguilla.  I of course was excited for all the food.  The research started once my flight was booked, and did not stop until I felt we had more than enough options.  I can get obsessive, so I had to really narrow down my list.  At the top of my list were a few, but one kept reappearing, Le Santal.  




Sitting on the beautiful beach of Sandy Ground St. Martin, Le Santal blew my expectations like no other restaurant has ever done before.  We pulled up to the restaurant where the valet and hostess were waiting for us.  Our car was taken to the parking lot and we were escorted to our table.  Our table was overlooking the water, so beautiful so calming, we really enjoyed the view.  
The restaurant is gorgeous.  Elegantly decorated in whites and blues, it real…

Jean Georges Steakhouse - A perfect first dinner in Vegas

There are two types of people in this world; serious meat eaters, and non meat eaters.  Now, do not think for one second that I am being pretentious as to assume this is really true, but in my food vision, it is.  I am a serious meat eater.  I love fish and seafood, but my first love is steak.  At the ripe old age of three, I used to devour a full 8-10 oz rib steak and sit there begging for another.  If you knew me at that age, you would be amazed as I was what people call a terribly skinny kid.  People would watch in amazement as this little pisher would devour the entire steak and lick the bone clean.  With this love affair with meat in mind, I made two amazing reservations at steak houses in Vegas.  The first was Jean Georges at the Aria.

I had sent the guys from my work here last November when they were in Vegas for the SEMA car show, and they ranted and raved about the meal they had.  When I heard all the mouthwatering descriptions of their dinner, I had to make sure I tried it fo…
