Corner Kitchen

Corner Kitchen resides in the spot of the old Heirloom (post) on Hollywood Road. It’s a nice, cozy, casual eatery perfect for brunch. Which is why- I keep coming back (3-4 times in the past few months.) It has a nice selection of simple breakfast items, healthy wraps, salads, sandwiches and hot food! Along with a small simple drink menu. Makes for a great Brunch spot (post).

1st Time. Brunch with sis! I had the English Breakfast $105 (the two eggs, two bacon strips, two sausages, baked beans, grilled mushrooms, and grilled tomatoes, along with white toast)! Sis went with the Healthy Mezze Platter $105.

2nd Time. Huevos Rancheros $70 (tortilla, avocado, black beans and roast tomato salsa) for me! I really enjoyed it actually. The roasted tomato salsa was nice and spicy…I didn’t eat up the tortilla- but everything else I did!

IMG_8354

Iced Lemon Tea $35. Perfect refresher!!! Love those mason jars too.

3rd Time. Country Kitchen Breakfast $65. (I added on sausages-at an additional cost). Which is a lot simpler than the Full English Breakfast- no baked beans, bacon strips! …On the other hand- not really missing that much! Hahaha and a diet coke!

Love the teeny tiny piece of egg! :) I’ll be back!

Kishoku

Kishoku has been garnering buzz since its launch in 2013. I’ve always been wanting to try it and finally one lunch I got the chance- but next time I want to come back for the omakase sets- they’re pricy, but considering the quality of the food- I can see why! They do come in at a more affordable $1200-$1500, as opposed to some other Japanese omakase places. The restaurant is beautiful. It’s nothing short of calm and serene in the noisy and bustling CWB. I loved the zen like feel of the restaurant. The comfy private booth areas, to the standout omakase sushi bar area-you bet I’ll be there next time. Kishoku’s menu and food is from the former chef of Sushi Ta-ke (post)!

Great lunch menu options (nicely priced too!)

IMG_6791

An assortment of the finest sashimi! (The toro, abalone was soooo sweet, buttery and fresh!) MMMMMM Omakase sets-here I come.

IMG_6792

A yummy bite of crabmeat salad! So gooooooood.

IMG_6793

Love the mini starter dishes they give you- on the right, is a mini side dish of one of the tastiest sweet shrimps around!

IMG_6794

We all dug immediately into the delicious uni sushi rolls! I LOVEEEEEEE uni *sea urchin*. The texture was terrific-the uni was so creamy, soft, fresh, sweet, juicy and beautiful in its bold orange colour.

A seared succulent piece of plump scallop wrapped in a salted crispy seaweed. Absolutely awesome!

IMG_6797

Sauteed Wagyu Beef & Onions w/ Sweet Soy Sauce on Steamed Rice $230. I ordered this and split with C! The wagyu beef was cooked quite nicely, but I definitely think the sushi, sashimi and other cooked foods were better tasting. Go for the raw foods!

IMG_6798

This buttery soft Ox tongue w/ Avocado was a surprise hit for me! I loved the texture and flavour difference of the beef tongue and creamy avocado. And after perusing Kishoku’s FB page- I also found out that “ox tongue offers health advantages by increasing your iron and zinc consumption (zinc boosts your immune system to help body fight infection while iron prevents anemia and helps cells to produce energy) and containing choline and vitamin B-12 to aid health of the nervous system”. (Kishoku’s FB)

Seafood Miso Soup! Delicious in ever gulp.

IMG_6802

Blueberry Ice Cream to cleanse off our palette! It was bomb, to say the least. Okay-I’m just biased! I just REALLY liked all the food we ate! And I definitely will be back. Kishoku has definitely moved up on my ‘Top Eats’ list! Great chat and conversations too! :)

Imasa

Imasa situated comfortably in The Peninsula has been a staple of Japanese fine dining. So one lunch we set out to try it….my company decided to let me choose…and since I was the only one who haven’t tried it yet- that’s where we went! Like I said situated next to The Peninsula’s resident Chinese fine dining restaurant: Spring Moon; Imasa was relatively empty when we first arrived. :) They have an extensive menu and there is a lot of choices and I went with their lunch menu sets! (During dinner is their endless Japanese buffet option!)

Pre-Appetizer: A nice fig, bean curd gelatin in a sesame sauce

Simple Spring Salad w/ salmon sashimi

IMG_6496

Uni Tempura/Shisho: We ordered these babies!! And they were pretty awesome, but I still prefer uni in its purest form! It was pretty good though. Very nice, hot, crispy and crunchy!

IMG_6497

Wagyu Beef Steak Don Lunch Set! Yummy-ness <3 Mushroom stir-fry, wagyu beef steak, egg custard (in the blue bowl), Japanese seafood teapot soup, and a bowl of fragrant fried rice.

IMG_6500

The wagyu beef was steak strips were sooooo heavenly. Buttery, milky soft and it really did melt in your mouth. The fried rice was the perfect counterpart! And very much needed to cut in with the fattiness of the steak pieces.

IMG_6502

Yuzu Sorbet, it was nice, light and fresh.

IMG_6504

Finished off lunch with a delicious cup of Iced Lemon tea! :D
