Sushi Bar Sushiya -- Great Japanese food


I recently visited the Sushi Bar Sushiya in Toronto. It is owned by the Zakkushi group, and is located in the basement of their restaurant chain.

This is undoubtedly one of the best sushi bars I have been. The sashimi was simply awesome, and sometimes I got the feeling the fish was so fresh that it will melt in the warmth of my mouth.

La Sani Grille Ajax - Decent Place with Great Indo-Pakistani Food

La Sani Grille Ajax is an Indo-Pakistani restaurant, with a branch in east Toronto. In Ajax, it occupies the spot that used to be the Pasta Tutti Giorni, which was one of my favourites, particularly for their escargot dishes.

La Sani Grille is also spacious, and some changes have been made to the interior and to the service style. It is a semi-fast food joint, with the dishes available displayed on a board on the left side. A monitor plays some of their dishes and how they are made in a loop while one is able to see part of the kitchen.
I have been there twice so far.
