New Wok New Wok 
Yesterday I went to New Wok New Wok at First Canadian Place.

I had the special, which was black bean beef with some vegetables and rice and stuff.

Not terribly memorable. A bit chewy.

I suppose I'll go back there to try other things when I've expended more places in FCP, but it's not a place I would generally choose to go to again, given the other options there.

I much prefer the Soley's burger and onion rings.

Thai Island: Pad Thai 
Yesterday I went and had the pad thai at Thai Island. All I can really say is that I'm going to miss not having this available to me anymore.

It really is delicious! Shrimp and chicken and tofu and more shrimp. Just a big bowl of delicious.

Wendy's With Style! 
While doing some last minute xmas shopping, I dropped in to Wendy's on Yonge St. near Wellesley for a classic single and a caesar salad.

The food was regular Wendy's food, which is tasty but nothing special. Good burger. Fresh salad.

What surprised me was while I was eating, one of the staff came by with a little basket of cups and a carafe of coffee and asked if I'd like some. Then another came around shortly after and asked if I wanted a mint.

At Wendy's.

Very cool. Looks like someone has decided to provide some actual service in the service industry above and beyond the bare minimum.

I commend them. Dave would have been proud!

KFC Has Jacked Up Their Prices 
I went to KFC today and found that they've changed all their menu posters to new ones with higher prices.

Merry Christmas to you too, you cheap chicken slaughtering bastards.

I was going to take a shot at ordering the classic combo with the poutine and two additional pieces of chicken as I'd talked about in the very first post in this blog.

Now that's gonna cost over $10 though so I'm just not going to bother.

Instead, I got one of their special boxes that had the classic chicken sandwich, some little breaded bits of chicken they probably don't know what else to do with, fries, a small salad, an apple pie, and a drink.

The alternative to this, for the exact same price, is a Big Crunch combo, which includes the sandwich, fries, and a drink.

Seems to me that KFC has just dropped way down my list of places I enjoy eating lunch at. It's only 50 cents or so more for everything... but it's enough to notice the hike and feel I've been gouged right before xmas.

The colonal would have never let this happen. They should be ashamed of themselves!

Rich Folk Deli 
Today we went to some rich folk deli in the Royal York Hotel.

Had an overpriced reuben sandwich and some baby shrimp chowder with some sort of peanut butter cookie.

It cost too much, but I suppose it tasted about as good as you can expect from a reuben sandwich and baby shrimp chowder.

That's about all there is to say about that place. I'd rather have a burrito... but we were in the area and hadn't eaten there before so I guess it was a good experience.
