La Fiesta Cafecito

Earlier this week we had the latest installment of our Why Cook Wednesday supper club.  Our last gathering was at the Noodle Express for Dim Sum. This month the theme was South American. Two of the regular attendees suggested La Fiesta Cafecito. I looked it up and knew that it would be close to the south end of the St. Anne’s bus route. Fortunately, the bus stops just by the side of the strip mall where the restaurant is located.La…Continue readingLa Fiesta Cafecito

Pho Mama’s Noodle House

Sometimes I hear about a restaurant I should try, but don’t realize how close to me it actually is. Pho Mama’s Noodle House on McPhilip’s Street is one.

The Royal Punjab has gone through several…Continue readingRoyal Punjab Sweet House

Buccacino’s is a traditional Italian restaurant. I think there was something else in that location many years ago, but my memory fails me. The restaurant is large and spacious. When we arrived there were not a lot of people in the restaurant. We…Continue readingBuccacino’s – Osborne Village

Carlos – Murphy’s, Osborne

Last Wednesday I met up with the Why Cook Wednesday’s Supper Club from St. Margaret’s, over at Carlos & Murphy’s. It’s been a while since I’ve gotten together with this group. However, scheduling and everything worked out and I was able to reconnect.The group meets more frequently during Lent, which may seem a little odd. Dining out during a time associated with giving things up. However, the more frequent meetings serve as times of connection. Relationships can get lost during…Continue readingCarlos – Murphy’s, Osborne
