Went back to Joey’s for a family dinner. I’ve heard great things about their Tuna Sashimi salad so I had to try it. I’m not much of a salad person (usually go for pasta), but this one is definitely worth trying. This place is a bit more upscale than other franchise restaurants like Pickle Barrel and I love how they have an upstairs patio. It was a bit chilly when we went, but luckily there were heated lamps set up all across the room.

They have drink specials everyday so I went with a Real Peach Bellini. Tastes just as good as the one at Milestone’s.

The food took a while to come, apparently there was an accident in the kitchen, but our waitress was great and made up for it by giving us a dessert on the house. No complaints though. Sushi was a little sub par but everything else was delicious. My sister ordered the ravioli with spinach and artichoke filling topped with ¬†wild scallop and prosciutto which is definitely what I’m planning to get the next time we come here. The tuna sashimi salad was really citrusy and refreshing, but I don’t think any salad will ever come close to Lee’s Singaporean Slaw!

For dessert we went with the Molten Lava Chocolate Souffle. It came with a scoop of ice cream and raspberries but was more lava cake than souffle.

Dessert at Milestones…..Dundas St W, Toronto

Food & Drink

Decided to grab drinks and dessert after our ramen dinner at Sansotei. We ended up sharing a Decadent Duo Dessert ( Ganache Torte and White Chocolate Cheesecake) Great pairing. The cheesecake was super light while the Ganache Torte was made of rich Belgian chocolate. I’ve been to Milestone’s at different locations before, and I’m pretty sure only this one has creepy plastic dolls in the washroom. It’s so out of place from the rest of the decor, but they made me laugh so I’ve included a picture of that too. Can you spot the naked doll?

The Old Spaghetti Factory…..The Esplanade, Toronto

Food & Drink

Got the chance to head down to The Esplanade during my lunch hour. It was crazy hot but we decided to sit on the patio anyway because it was such a nice day. My favourite Italian dish is lasagna but I’m also a huge sucker for ravioli so I decided to get the Factory Ravioli with butternut squash, caramelized onion, and brie, along with grape tomatoes and baby spinach with white wine cream sauce.

The food took a while to come (to the point where our waitress apologized twice for the wait), but the staff was friendly and the beer was cold and in the end the food was pretty decent.

The ravioli was a bit on the hard side and I couldn’t really taste the white wine in the sauce, but you can’t really go wrong with butternut squash as a filling. The chicken lasagna was pretty good too. Would definitely come back to try some other items!
