If any of you are interested, I found this flickr account of (from what I've gathered) a couple that live in the GTA (Toronto) that seem to eat out a TON. From Chinese greasy spoon noodle houses to Michelin level restaurants and everything in between, and they take loads of pictures of everything they eat.

Definitely guaranteed to get you drooling within the first 2 pages of pics.

And now for what I had earlier today:



Warm, spicy sustenance on a cold winter's day. Nothing quite like it in the world.

^What's that called? Funny, the so called Chinese food in the Western world is totally nothing like what we Chinese in Asia really eat/have.

EDIT: Oh btw, you're using the chopsticks wrongly! They should never be rested on the bowl in this "stand-up" manner. It should be resting flat on the bowl, like so:


:p:rolleyes:

That's Pho, which is Vietnamese soup noodles. Pretty much a go-to fast food choice whenever I'm in Chinatown.

Anyway, seems like I need to plan a trip to Montreal soon in overindulge at this place. God.....I never truly realized how lucky Tony Bourdain is.

When my girlfriend and I are deciding what we're in the mood for for dinner:

"What are you craving?"
"I think I could go for Chinese?"
"'Fake' Chinese, or 'real' Chinese?"

:lol:
