Recently, my mom, hubby and I decided to go out for lunch. It was a chilly, rainy day. We could have gone to any chain restaurant, as we have in the past, but we were all craving something a little different. A few years back, my mom and I had gone to the Black Forest Inn. She had been several times but that was my first visit. I fell in love with the food but hadn’t had the opportunity to go back since then. My husband had never eaten there and was keen to try it based on seeing it on You Gotta Eat Here. So, I made the suggestion: how about lunch at the Black Forest Inn?

A REVIEW: The Crepe House, Port Dover, Ontario

Restaurant:
The Crepe House
Address: 2012 Park Street, Port Dover, Ontario
Online: Facebook and Twitter (website in progress)
Price: about $13 per crepe

But I am in no way biased about this restaurant as a result. If I didn’t care for it, I just wouldn’t write about it. If you’re in the Port Dover area and are looking for a decent meal, it’s worth stopping by. Let me share with you why.

I recently visited a sushi place with some good friends. We had a few options, but ended up going with Spring Sushi on Upper James in Hamilton, Ontario. The price was reasonable at $22 per adult for all you can eat. The decor was pleasant, clean and inviting. The staff were friendly and very quick to whisk away our order sheet and replace it with another as needed.

That’s how the orders were done. The menu items were numbered and  you simply wrote on the sheet the number of the item and how many orders of each you wanted. When ready, the wait staff snatched up the sheet and before long, food started to trickle out from the kitchen. Continue reading
