Beyti Kebab in Mississauga

So, we checked out this place for the first time a month or so ago, and the photos are from that particular visit 🙂 It’s a very small place, run by a very friendly Turkish couple. Their menu isn’t large, but it doesn’t have to be either. We ordered the lamb pide, as well as chicken doner (shawarma) but I couldn’t get a good photo of it, so I didn’t want to add it LOL But believe me when I say, it was yummy!! As well as the lamb pide. If you like Turkish cuisine and appreciate friendly service, I would suggest you give Beyti Kebab a visit. I don’t think you’ll be disappointed!! 🙂

The Stooges Family Restaurant – August 3, 2014

(photo courtesy of Trevor G. on Yelp – thanks!!)

My hubby and I met my parents, down in Port Credit, this past Sunday evening. We were hungry, so we decided to try out The Stooges Family Restaurant, located right behind the Starbucks. We had previously eaten at the restaurant, when it was called Helen’s, and always enjoyed their Fish & Chips. So when we saw that The Stooges had Fish & Chips on their menu, we decided to give it a try. Good thing I asked the wait-staff, how big the portions were, because when she said it was pretty big – my hubby and I decided to share.

Glad we did too!! We each got a decent sized piece of Halibut, with  fries and a mound of coleslaw to share. The coating around the fish was thin, light and crisp. Can’t go wrong with fries, and the oil/vinegar coleslaw was great too…but I’m partial to oil/vinegar coleslaw over creamy. My Dad got the Fish & Chips as well,  and took half of it home. My Mom got the Montreal Smoked Meat Sandwich, and took half of it home well. The prices are reasonable for the portions you get as well. Our Fish & Chips were $16 and my Mom’s choice was either $11 or $14 (can’t remember LOL). If you’re ever in the Port Credit area, give them a try, I’m sure you’ll enjoy it.

The Guilty Dog Coffee House – June 22, 2014

My hubby and I finally paid a visit to this coffee house, after months and months of passing it by, and wanting to check it out. It’s a cozy little place, with a well-versed barista at the ready, to make whatever you like.

We decided to have iced coffee, so he made us iced Americanos, since they were out of drip coffee for that day. We also got a piece of iced lemon pound cake to share…one of many baked goodies, brought in by a local baker in the area. The Americanos were freshly crafted, and the pound cake had just the right amount of lemon for us. Most times we do take-out, but on this day, we chose to enjoy our drink and cake, at one of the nearby tables. The Guilty Dog, has a nice atmosphere, and we’ll definitely stop by again soon. If you’re ever in the Port Credit area, you should give them a try. They’re located in the plaza just west of Port Credit Harbour, right after the Royal Bank. For a bit more info, you can peruse their page below, as they don’t have a dedicated website.

Sassy Teas Shop in Port Credit, Mississauga – June 15, 2014

We saw this shop, while walking around the area last Sunday, and decided to go in – as it was new to us. It was a cute little tea shop and lounge, where you can enjoy a cup of tea or iced tea.

After perusing their teas, we decided to have, one of their daily special iced teas. We chose to try the Iced Green Tea with Tropical Pineapple and Fresh Strawberries. I asked for it to be unsweetened, and glad I did, because the fruit had sweetened it enough naturally. It was really good, and around $3, which is a wee bit expensive for it’s medium size. But, since it tasted so good on a warm sunny day, I let that pass!! If you’re ever in the Port Credit area, and want to check it out, it’s just passed the Starbucks on Lakeshore Road West.

Cheers Everyone!! 🙂

Tim Hortons 50th Birthday Donut

 

Earlier today, we stopped by Tim Hortons, after hearing they were giving out free donuts. For their 50th birthday, they created a birthday cake donut, which they gave out. It was glazed, and had confetti candy pieces, baked inside. It was OK, but one I wouldn’t have again…

Cannoli From Lazar Bakery in Mississauga

There’s nothing like, having a nice cup of tea and sharing a cannoli, with the one you love!! Lazar Bakery, is a wonderful place, specializing in Portuguese/Italian groceries. They have a vast pastry and cake section, which is THE reason, why we go there only once in a while LOL This time around we got a large cannoli (our usual), as well as a strawberry and coconut tart, which we haven’t had yet. They also have, a great hot table in the back, with a lot of comfort food. If you’re ever in Mississauga, make sure to make a stop, at Lazar Bakery. You won’t be disappointed!!

Czehoski – November 2, 2013

(photo thanks to On The Fourth Floor blog)

Thanks to a Buytopia voucher, my hubby and I tried out Czehoski. Every time we’d pass by the weathered sign of this once butcher shop, we’ve wanted to check it out. So, the second I saw there was a deal for this place, I jumped on it!!

We started off with the Blue Crab Cakes and Warm Olives. The crab cakes were great!! They were all crab meat, with a very thin, crisp coating. The garlic aioli I wasn’t fond of, but the chili aioli was nice and spicy!! The olives were also good, and you get a LOT. I wasn’t the biggest fan of the fennel, but everything else in the warm olives were yummy 🙂

Then we both decided on the Mac’n’Cheese, consisting of, cheddar stout rarebit sauce and Ontario curds. This was a seriously awesome mac’n’cheese. The creaminess of the cheddar, was only slightly upstaged, by the ooey gooey cheese curds that was at the bottom of the bowl. So, every time you took a forkful, you’d get a bit of the cheesy curd goodness!! It was also a very good portion, that you could cut in half, but when it’s this yummy – we couldn’t help ourselves and finished it all.

We will definitely pay Czehoski’s a visit again, as the prices were ok, for the portions you get. There’s a lot of other dishes we’d like to try, such as the Pulled Pork Poutine, Nachos and Pulled Pork Mac’n’Cheese!! So, if you’re ever in the Trinity-Bellwoods area, definitely give them a try – I don’t think you’ll be disappointed…
