Dining in Toronto

After cooking and lunching in Toronto, it was time for a celebration dinner.

And the celebrator's choice was P.F. Changs

Yes, this American-Chinese food chain is now in Toronto & Montreal as well as many other places around the world.

The appetizers were not a good start of the eating experience. The egg rolls lacked taste and the dumplings' dough was pretty bad.

But the atmosphere was fun, the seating relaxing and the service good, so one did not lose hope as the feast arrived.

In order of preference; the Dali Chicken was the best. It is their spiciest dish but unless you bite into the chili, it is not too bad (or is it I am so used to spicy food hanging out with my dear lovely neighbour?).

The Singapore Street Noodles were very good too; even though I doubt they are anywhere close to authentic noodles you pick up on the streets of Singapore (or so I imagine as I have never been to Singapore).

This shrimp with candied walnuts dish had split personality - love you or love you not. The walnuts with the cream and melon balls were excellent and refreshing. The shrimps were tasty. But something seems to get lost when putting them all together.

The sweet and sour chicken was simple and, well, sweet and sour.

It was a lot of food, it was enjoyable enough, and the evening was lots of fun. Too bad we forgot our doggy bag on the table (that is what happens when you leave a restaurant too stuffed).
