Dinner Date At Kelsey’s

So, thanks to a coupon card from Kelsey’s, we decided to have dinner there on Sunday. Gotta love coupons right?! 😀

I finally decided on The Ultimate Steak Sandwich, with a side of fries and a pickle spear. It was made up of marinated grilled steak, Rickard’s Red caramelized onions, garlic sautéed mushrooms, smoked cheddar cheese, roasted garlic mayo and honey mustard. It was definitely tasty, but as always, too salty for my personal taste. Then again, most restaurant foods are super salty for me.

My hubby decided on The Messy Fish Sandwich, with a side of fries and a pickle spear. It was made up of beer-battered piece of wild north Atlantic haddock split in two, Kelsey’s creamy coleslaw, sliced tomatoes shredded lettuce and zesty tartar sauce. When they call it a messy sandwich, it does NOT disappoint!! After my hubby took his first bite, it fell apart onto the plate LOL I had a bite of what was left in the bun, and it was really tasty. The fish was lightly breaded, just how I like it. I think if we went back to Kelsey’s, I’d probably get this sandwich, because even though it was salty – it didn’t taste as salty as my choice of sandwich did.

All in all, we had a nice evening out, which was made even better by not putting too much of a dent in our wallets!! If Kelsey’s wants to send us another coupon, we’ll be happy to dine there again 😉


Bon Appetit Everyone!! 🙂

No Sugar Added Peach Passion Fruit Bellini Crystal Light Froster

Last weekend, when it was super hot, I was really craving a Slushie. I used to get Diet Coke Slushies years ago, from 7-11, but they don’t seem to have it anymore 😦 My hubby and I stopped at a near by Mac’s Milk store, and I saw they had this one on tap. I was intrigued!! The no sugar added part, was what sold it for me initially, but the taste closed the deal. It was yummy!! Yes, it was a bit more sweet then a regular sugar Froster, but you expect that from a sugar free drink sweetened by Sucralose. I’ll definitely have it again, the next time I’m craving one, since I like to have these in moderation LOL

Off The Hook Gourmet Fish’n’Chips

Thanks to another deal voucher, my hubby and I checked this place out. They’re located just south of Danforth on Broadview, in a small location, with a few eat-in seats.

After perusing the menu, we decided to start with the gluten free fried calamari with cucumber cilantro dipping sauce. It was ok…fried calamari is still a hit and miss food for me. I have yet to have some that blows me away, but I keep trying nonetheless. Maybe I just like grilled calamari better? Who knows!! The breading was light…but slightly on the tasteless side? Maybe that’s what I didn’t like about it? But that’s just me!! You could love it right? 🙂

We then ordered the halibut with fries, creamy coleslaw and chipotle mayo dipping sauce. HOLY halibut!! The piece was big…for me at least, and it came with a good amount of fries. Since I had eaten fried calamari before hand, I did take the top half of the batter off the halibut. The fish was perfectly cooked in it’s batter shell, that was crisp and light. It was the kind that wasn’t overly thick, so that the fish itself gets lost in it – ya know? The coleslaw was lightly creamy…just the way I like it!! The fries were hand cut and that’s the best kind 🙂 And the chipotle mayo dipping sauce was SPICY!! But we enjoyed it 🙂 They do have a list of other dipping sauces, including traditional tartar sauce, so no need to fear!! Though it is a bit pricy, at $13…well…let me rephrase that…it’s a bit pricy for us LOL Over all it tasted good, and if I went there again, I’d order the halibut again or give the mahi mahi  a try. So, if you you’re ever in the area, make a note to visit Off the Hook 🙂
