I liked the flavor of the braised pork cheeks and they were so tender and juicy. And I always love braising juices combined with a creamy pureed root vegetable.

Spicy miso ramen with double portion of pork cha-shu. $15.80

This was tasty! I loved the spice level of the broth, and the ingredients were great. The ramen noodles also had a nice bite to them. I just wished the chasiu was cut a little thinner so it would’ve been easier to eat. These were pretty thick and harder to eat.

Topped with classic pepperoni, fresh mushrooms, bacon crumble and mozzarella cheese.
Pizza Pizza, Toronto CANADA

I liked the flavor of this pizza, but it was almost room temperature! They should have at least reheated it! I may have been out prior to visiting this place late at night, but I can still judge the temperature of a pizza slice! The crust was also very chewy and difficult to eat.
