Reds Wine Tavern

Deciding to head over to Reds for drinks and apps is something that I suggest often. I've been here multiple times and they were all great experiences. Consistency is something that I value very highly when it comes to an experience at a restaurant. It's one of the main things that keeps me coming back!

At this visit to Reds, we just ordered some appetizers and a bottle of wine (okay, make that 4 bottles of wine). We had 3 bottles of a Reisling and then followed with a bottle of Chablis.

As for the food...
Prince Edward Island Musselssteamed in Sauvignon Blanc with fresh fennel, saffron threads, tomato and herbes de Provence. Served with warm, crusty French baguette.

Cheeseburger Sliders Classic mini burgers, perfected. Served with tangy American cheese, everything sauce, pickle and a freshly in-house baked bun.

And the Maine Lobster Guacamole | Guajillo chili-dressed lobster, hand-mashed avocado,
fresh lime juice, serrano pepper and warm, crisp tortillas.

We also ordered a chocolate cake but it wasn't pictured as it was not good (and it was taken off our bill).

Everything was really tasty. My favorite was definitely the guac (I love anything avocado).
All in all, it was a great night (in terms of food, and service!) and I will definitely be back.

Akane Sushi


At my visit to Akane Sushi, I ordered one of their many sushi platters. They had all the combinations possible between sushi, rolls, and sashimi. I prefer salmon the most, and I was very happy to see all the salmon on the platter (except my dad, as he likes the other fish that is normally prepared in assorted platters like this). 

They also gave us a dish of these Korean clear cold noodles to start, and green tea ice cream to finish. 

Overall, the rolls were really filled and delicious. The sashimi was a hit or miss. Some of the pieces were really good, and some of them were so thin that it fell apart when you picked it up. I was thoroughly satisfied with this meal though! It did satisfy my sushi craving, except I now have the craving again due to writing up this post!
