So, I tried one today for the first time, at Freshly Squeezed, and hated it. It was slushie style (not sure that was one of the reasons why), tasted way too sweet, and nothing like green apple. Was very disappointed…so much so, I asked for my trusty Pineapple, which I thoroughly enjoyed. Because I disliked it so much, I forgot to take a photo before handing it back LOL Anyone else have green apple, and enjoyed it? Let me know…I’d love to hear from you!!
So, my hubby and I were literally buying gas on Wednesday, when I looked across the street and saw this place. I was craving a Coconut bubble tea, so I told my hubby, I was going to walk over there and get us one. He would follow suit after finishing up at the gas station. For the life of me, I’m not sure why I didn’t take a photo of the store myself, but I found one on Yelp, to share with you…thanks Michelle S 🙂 It’s a VERY small store front. There’s literally 4 stools and 2 small tables, so you know most just take out their orders. Now, like I said, I went here with the notion of just buying bubble teas…I was wrong LOL Once I laid my eyes on the menu, and saw that they had banh mi sandwiches, I was sold!! My hubby and I had always heard of these Vietnamese sandwiches, but we’d never tried one. So, I decided this was what we were having for dinner. And at $2.95 a pop, it was MORE then reasonably priced 🙂
I decided on getting the assorted banh mi with pate sandwich, which was also the most popular. It consisted of an assortment of cold cuts, pork pate (all made in house!), lettuce, cilantro (mmm…), sliced hot pepper and pickled veggies. I gotta say, it was pretty good. The spicy hot pepper and pickled veggies were a good contrast to the creamy garlicky pate and cold cuts. We’ll definitely go back there again, as the prices are very reasonable and the bubble tea was good too, but I’ve yet to have a bad bubble tea!! So if you’re ever in Mississauga, you should drop in, and give them a try. They’re located at Dundas and Erindale…across from the Shell gas station.
My hubby and I had Pho for dinner on Friday night at Pho 99. Nothing beats chicken, rare beef and tendon pho, fresh shrimp rolls (the photo above isn’t from our restaurant, as we gobbled ours up before I remembered I wanted to take a photo of it LOL) and mango bubble tea…omnomnom!! I know the pho isn’t anything spectacular to look at, but if you’ve never had it, it’s a MUST try. The combination of flavours are simple, but fabulously delicious – I recommend everyone tries it at least once. My hubby and I limit it, by going once every week or so, as it’s very high in sodium…but too nummy to completely give up!!
