Osmow’s

We recently heard that Osmow’s now has an ISNA certificate with regards to their meat/meat supplier.

As always we loved their chicken shawarma. A word of caution: their hot/extra hot sauce can be very strong for some individuals (including us; though we claim to be able to eat very spicy food).

This time around we also tried their famous Chicken on the Rocks, which is essentially a chicken shawarma plate (minus the veggies); however, their are very generous with the amount of sauces that they use (unlike most other shawarma places). So it’s their same great tasting chicken shawarma served on a bed of rice (we believe adding fries to the plate is also an option) smothered with all sorts of sauces.

We have only visited the Streetsville location so far. This location is really a takeout restaurant and parking is a problem!

Crème brûlée @ Flavors Cafe

Crème Brûlée at Flavors Cafe

Crème Brûlée at Flavors Cafe

We have reviewed Flavors Cafe in the past and continue to go back, as time permits. It has actually turned into our favourite hang out spot! We have decided to briefly review them again after trying their crème brûlée. We have tried their regular crème brûlée, Darjeeling Tea Crème brûlée  and Milo crème brûlée. Each time the dessert was expertly done and finger licking good (literally!). Crème brûlée has a custard base and a hard caramel top. The custard is smooth and mellow and the crunchy top layer is the perfect crush to this exquisite dessert. Best of all, it is light and good for sharing.

It is priced very reasonably at about $3.00 and change. So if you are in the area, had dinner next door, or want a place for a great dessert, we would definitely recommend giving the crème brûlée at Flavors Cafe a try.

Breakfast at Sizzling Skillet

We paid a few visits to Sizzling Skillet when it first opened for lunch & dinner but we weren’t too impressed, so we didn’t think of going back. Ever (harsh, but true).

However, when we recently learned about their Toblerone pancakes, we reluctantly decided to give their breakfast a try. We are big suckers for good breakfast. So one lazy Saturday morning, we said hey, let’s go give Sizzling Skillet a try today. The one incentive we had of trying this place again was their customer service. We have always appreciated their friendly and attentive service. We thought to ourselves, it’s ok if the breakfast turns out to be not so great….at least the customer service will rock!

We were in for a surprise. The breakfast was amazing! Yes! It’s true. We ordered Toblerone Pancakes ($6.25) and Western Omelette ($7.95). The pancakes were soft and fluffy and had Toblerone shredded on top. We enjoyed these with lots of maple syrup (om nom nom anyone?). We usually think pancakes are kind of boring but these made us change our mind. These were truly awesome!

We also ordered the Western Omelette, which came with rye bread and hash browns. This omelette had bell peppers, onions, salami and cheese. We gotta admit, salami was the reason we ordered this particular omelette. It did not disappoint. The omelette was delicious, the veggies were sautéed to perfection, the salami was as a good as it sounded and the cheese…well, you can’t go wrong with cheese. The hash browns were okay-ish but the rye bread was great. One bite and we were surprised at how good it tasted! Our bill came up to $16 and change which was pretty reasonable for two people in our opinion.

We loved the breakfast so much that we decided to back the very next weekend and again ordered Toblerone Pancakes as well as Steak & Cheese Omelette Panini ($7.98). If you look at the menu you won’t find the Steak & Cheese Omelette Panini. It is because it was an item that the chef had us try as it is something he is thinking of introducing.

Hands down, this panini was the best thing we ever ate for breakfast.  Tender steak, oozing cheese, and hot sauce between two slices of rye bread. One word: UH-MA-ZING! This was so good that we didn’t want to share it with each other. We highly recommend this item. Just ask the chef to make your Steak & Cheese Omelette into a panini and you will be able to enjoy this delicious breakfast.

So if you’re in Scarborough and in the mood for breakfast (with halal meat option), make sure you visit Sizzling Skillet.

Their customer service remains very good!

Please note: We were under the impression that breakfast is only on weekends. A recent phone call confirmed that it is also available during weekdays from 10am-3pm.
