Frequently travelling for business across Canada (mostly West) and the U.S. (periodically), we are privileged with eating in various cities, experiencing the life of the city and through the magic of food, different cultures.

The reason for starting this site was because we can't tell you the number of times we would look on other sites to find reviews of restaurants by the general public, only to come away scratching our heads. Yes, that likely will make us sound like snobs, but hey...there really is no accounting for some people's taste.

Unlike most "reviewers", we never, ever tell the restaurant who we are, or what we are doing. This ensures that we receive no special treatment, and that the establishments aren't on their "best behavior" just because we're there. So you'll hear about the worst of the worst, the best of the best and everything from fast food to luxurious restuarants in our travels, as that is the range and diversity of our palates. Please join us on what has been one hell of a food ride thus far, as we finally unveil, without prejudice, what we really think of the food and let you decide where to eat your next meal.

The Sushi Dragon: Toronto

Thursday evening and looking for something close to the hotel to eat, having just joined my cousin and his wife after not having seen them for a while, we were looking for something that would quell our hunger and provide enough time to catch up and chat...sushi came to mind. What better place to relax and eat than a sushi place? Looking for another sushi place, which apparently moved, we stumbled across The Sushi Dragon situated on Dixon, so we figured we’d give it a try... At first glimpse of this place, I immediately noticed we were one of only a hand full of tables who had chosen this place to eat....good or bad, I don’t know....it was 8pm on a Thursday, maybe after the dinner rush for them? Regardless, as the place was empty we were seated promptly and our drink orders taken. Ordering the large Sake and an order of miso soup for each of us, as well as a soft shell crab, we began catching up. Never having had soft shell crab I had no idea of what to expect. It came cut into 6 pieces on a platter formed as a whole crab...and was surprisingly good. I never thought eating crab shell would be ok, but I guess that’s why it’s called soft shell...it felt like a crunchy tortilla battered crab...not bad for my first impression. Now I am far from a avid sushi eater, it’s something I have to be in the mood for, but always enjoy the rolls thoroughly. We took turns ordering rolls, and decided upon the Spicy Tuna, Lobster Rolls and The Big Canadian (I believe- well its stared with the big). Again, not having been an avid sushi eater I can only trust my cousin and his wife’s opinion of the sushi, I thought it was alright..I have definitely had better elsewhere, but these rolls were huge... I usually hate placing a whole piece in my mouth, but trying to accomplish that with these was like mild suffocation!!

Apart from the place being a tad chilly the overall the experience was good. The food was delivered at the right time, well presented and enjoyable. If I am ever in the mood for sushi, I would go back.
