Tag Archives: Take Out


The amazing Mexican food from Ahora caused yet another feeding frenzy in my living room tonight. Fresh Fresh Fresh ingredients came together for a hugely satisfying and delectable feast. And it’s like this everytime from this place! I’ve also sampled the nachos, which it turns out are made using homemade corn chips, so I don’t need to sell you on how delicious they are. And the churros are like perfect little freshly made donut sticks dipped in dulce de leche.  And if you’ve ever had dulce de leche, you know that it’s so good it’s completely possible to eat it by the spoonful.  After spoonful, after spoonful….

ANYWAYS, here is what we had from Ahora this time:  Grande Chicken Burrito with Mexican rice.

The burrito is stuffed with perfectly seasoned chicken, cheese, black beans, rice, sour cream, salsa gringa, guacamole and romaine lettuce.  SO GOOD.  (I’m realizing now that the side order of rice is a little redundant, but refer to my previous statement about everything being SO GOOD).

Chris had the equally tasty Tres Chicken Tacos.  And beans and rice.  And look! Fresh avocado! Mmmmmmmmm 🙂

Did I mention they have a salsa bar?  This is just a small sample of what they offer, so if you like your mexican food extra spicy this is a great way to up the heat factor. It’s also kinda fun just to try all the different salsas 🙂

As you can tell this place offers take out, so you can enjoy it from the comfort of your couch if their lively basement restaurant isn’t your thing.

So Good

I had a craving for Chinese food after a long day at work last week – although who am I kidding, I always have a craving for Chinese.  Anyways, I indulged said craving with some takeout from So Good, and as usual, it filled the hunger void superbly. So Good lives up to it’s name once again!

This is the dish that keeps me coming back to this place – Wu See Chicken.  They also offer Wu See Vegetables which are equally amazing, and include delicious fried tofu.  Wu See is a slightly spicy and pretty much perfect peanut sauce.  The texture is excellent, and a little bit creamy.  And it’s been amazing every single time I’ve ordered it over the past 6 or so years.  So Good is so consistent!

As I’ve said before, the best crispy beef I’ve ever tasted was from a restaurant that closed in Toronto’s Chinatown.  But this crispy beef is definitely helping soothe the sting of that loss 😉

They don’t look particularly exciting, but you have to order them!  Chicken Balls!

Above average spring rolls too – greasy and flavourful.

And of course, standard steamed rice…

And standard fluorescent sauces…delightful!

Delicious Mystery Sauces

All of these combined equals a delightfully gluttonous experience 🙂
