First of all, how good is Justin Timberlake’s Suit & Tie? The black and white (or more like black and grey) video is fantastic.
Anyway...let me show you a few things from my past week:
1. Patio season is almost upon us. The Black Bull hasn’t wasted any time.
2. Starbucks interiors are getting more hip by the day. Yes, it’s a giant metal S hanging on exposed brick walls.
3. The white eames chairs at RSquared Cafe are very chic.
4. Just a bit of fun with Leo and friend outside of North of Brooklyn Pizzeria. Again.

We were struggling to think up of some place to eat after work one Saturday. Since we were close to College Street, we ended up trying Hey Meatball! for the first time. While I’m not keen on the meatballs themselves (dense and dry), everything else was pretty good. The polenta was especially nice.

The guys at Union know what they’re doing. Coffee from Sense Appeal, croissants from Clafouti, housemade strawberry jam, and a relaxing morning soundtrack heavy on Grizzly Bear.

There are no real healthy options at DonDon. But it’s a Japanese Pub, so ya know…when in Rome. Everything seems deep fried, drenched in butter or oil, loaded with garlic or mayo, grilled, and salty as heck. It’s perfect for knocking back a few drinks before heading home. The service can be spotty, we never got the tuna rice bowl that we ordered twice and they almost forgot our desserts. But it’s a fun place to be.
Eaten: deviled eggs with crisped bacon, edamame with dried red shiso salt, ginger fried chicken, various grilled meats on skewers, tuna carpaccio, steamed pork belly, steamed fish with garlic and butter, matcha pudding, shochu cocktails (honey, mango, and calpico).
DonDon also makes sashimi, cheese wontons, pork buns, udons, Tokyo style hot dogs, hot pots, and the very elusive black sesame ice-cream.

A visit at the Art Gallery of Ontario for the Evan Penny exhibition led us to Kinton Ramen afterwards. We had the Spicy Fried Chicken, Shio Ramen, Spicy Garlic Ramen (with extra meat), and the Vegetable Ramen.
