Cafe Salade de Fruits

Click to add a blog post for Cafe Salade de Fruits on Zomato Three of us went for lunch during the weekday. The restaurant was small and packed, but had a lot of unique ‘French’ decor that gave it a nice European atmosphere.

idearabbit-cafedesalade2 idearabbit-cafedesalade3idearabbit-cafedesalade4I ordered the Omelette du jour $9 which came with an omelet with red peppers and their daily soup. The soup was quite large and very tasteful. The omelet was soft, though I would have liked to have more ingredients inside – especially mushrooms! Love mushrooms – a must have in omelets!

idearabbit-cafedesalade5One of us wanted the same dish, but with prawns thrown into the omelet, but that was not allowed, so she ordered the Shrimp Salad.

idearabbit-cafedesalade6The other company ordered the Spinach Salad. They were both pretty large and presented very well. Looked tasty and healthy!
Service was great and the atmosphere was very nice! A nice new find!

Forty Ninth Parallel Café & Lucky’s Doughnuts

Click to add a blog post for Forty Ninth Parallel Cafe & Lucky's Doughnuts on Zomato It’s a hipster cafe, but unlike the one on Main St., the teal colour and the sliding glass (which are open during warm weather) gives it a brighter warm feel. The patio and marble tables with simple metal chairs reminded me of a bit of Europe.
Sadly, they didn’t have Rooibos, so I ended up with Chamomile as the other other option for caffeine free tea was Peppermint, which I’m not a fan of.

idearabbit-49parallel_kits4Sheepie had the coffee and doughnut combo. I forgot if it was $3.50 or $3. Either way, a good deal.
Unfortunately, not having Rooibos tea is a killer for me…but otherwise, a very nice cafe.

Yak & Yeti Bistro

Yak & Yeti Bistro Menu, Reviews, Photos, Location and Info - Zomato I had a Groupon and so Sheepie and I went for dinner. I wanted to try their specialty which was the Yak Momo. Unfortunately, the voucher required us to get an entree each, so Sheepie ordered the Masala Fish $15. A dish served with local fish semi-stewed in Himalayan-style curry with assorted vegetables. It was buttery and rich. Very delicious!

idearabbit-yakyeti idearabbit-yakyeti2 idearabbit-yakyeti3I had the Jackfruit Curry $14 which had green jackfruit cooked with bell peppers, onions, basil and special Himalayan spices. This was also very good, but I have to admit, I did like the Masala Fish better.

idearabbit-yakyeti4Tingmo $3

Both entrees comes with rice which quickly filled us up.

The server recommended trying Tingmo $3, so we ordered one. It was like a cinnamon bun, but not sweet. It was interesting, but since I’m not much of a bread person, I gave most of it for Sheepie and enjoyed my rice instead.

The place has a really nice chill-out atmosphere, inside and out on patio. It’s clean and well kept. Sheepie approved. It wasn’t busy, so it was nice to enjoy a quiet dining experience. The service was satisfactory.

Would love to come back again to try different dishes, especially the Yak Momo!
