Matsuda Japanese Cuisine | Scarborough

I should have written about Matsuda a long time ago because I eat here with my work peeps ALL THE TIME. We have consumed a large amount of sushi at this all-you-can-eat Japanese restaurant! We order a selection of maki rolls, tempura and dumplings and we always start with the Golden Shrimp. They are a must-order.


The spicy salmon sushi pizza is really lovely, crunchy and flavourful.


All the rolls are fresh and perfectly prepared. Order the Chef's Recommendation on the menu if you aren't sure where to start. The sunshine roll is one of my faves.


We go to the Masuda at Steeles and Middlefield, right on the border of Scarborough and Markham. There is also a location at Don Mills and York Mills. Rosie :)

Le Bistro Lounge - Courtyard & TownePlace by Marriott | Markham

I love going out to lunch. It makes a regular workday a little more special. I'm always looking for new places to eat near our studio that serve great food and are easy to meet up with your friends at. Le Bistro Lounge, located at the Courtyard Marriott Markham (right on Woodbine just north of Steeles) is lovely. The food is delicious and the service is outstanding.


What I really liked about Le Bistro was how casual and cool the vibe was. Our girl's lunch was so much fun we actually organized a little work event there and were blown away. The staff at Le Bistro are so genuinely lovely and kind.



The menu features seasonal signature dishes, classic faves and a great drinks selection including Starbucks coffee. We were so impressed by how fresh the ingredients were.




Le Bistro Lounge is great. Check it out the next time you want a yummy meal in a cool and convenient spot. There is tons of parking and the service is wonderful. I love walking into hotels, there is something so fancy about it, especially when it's a hotel as lovely as this one. Rosie :)

Mr. Sub at Markham & McNicoll

There is a Mr. Sub just down the road from the radio station I work at. We eat there a lot. Initially it was because of the proximity. But now it's because the owners Sam and Anna run their sandwich shop with such love for their customers. They remember your name and they remember your order. The place is full of regulars every day. AND of course, the subs are awesome. So fresh and delicious.


Last week our neighbourhood Mr. Sub (on Markham at McNicoll) celebrated their 10th anniversary and there was no way we were missing the party. Sam and Anna had a two-day bash with music, prizes and tons of specials. We broadcasted the first hour of our show right from the front of the store. It was so much fun.






We feel like we are part of the family. Happy Anniversary guys! Rosie :)
