Toronto, Canada, taken on October 5, 2015
My “must-do” list of going back to Toronto always contains going for AYCE (all-you-can-eat) Japanese food because let’s face it, Japanese food is delicious. Faced with as much sashimi and sushi and maki and tempura (etc. etc.) as you want and can handle, how could you not be tempted! Round 1, let’s go!

The theme of this week’s WordPress Photo Challenge is Orange you glad it’s photo challenge time? and it’s the first time that I’m posting multiple photos in one entry on this blog. Orange, huh. One of my nicknames is “Orange” because apparently a friend of mine thought that my Chinese name sounded like “orange” or “orange juice”…fair enough. I rummaged through my old photos to look for anything that conveyed “orange”, and here is a small selection. Enjoy 🙂
The last time I’ve been to Sushi On Bloor must have been something like five years ago. I had lunch with the sister there today, both of getting bento boxes and some maki rolls to share. Surprisingly the place is as good as I remembered it to be, leaving us both very satisfied 😀
At work, there is a chart of kanji (Chinese characters used in Japanese) to depict the different types of seafood, especially fish, used in Japanese cuisine. Each one contains the “fish” radical (in rare cases another radical, such as the kanji for “shrimp”) with a different variable part to distinguish them all. Gotta say I learned a lot from this chart – there were so many of these characters that I’ve only seen for the first time!
Second sushi photo in a row – does this count as cheating? Can’t help it though, my part-time job puts me in contact with sushi on almost a daily basis, except today, I was at the restaurant as a customer for the first time. With the sister, of course. This is the Philadelphia Roll, a maki with cream cheese. Like it or not, that’s up to you to decide 😛
