Lent: Day 40

Okay, so if I could cheat on yesterday in lieu of my first non-cheating Sunday, I’ve decided to cheat today, in lieu of my second non-cheating Sunday. Had to go to Wheels Direct to get the snow tires off the CRV, and since it’s first come, first served, we showed up bright and early @ 9:30, although they only open at 10am.
In any case, we got a great deal (cash only) and were out of there by 11am. For lunch, the three of us went to Ding Tai Fung for some yummy Shanghainese dimsum. Got the usual “siu loong bau”, “chee fan” plus a pan fried beef bun and some fried pork chop noodle soup! Three of us made for no leftovers…how yummy!
Also headed to Chapters for a Starbucks coffee, and ran into an old colleague from Staples – what a small world.
Dinner was at a new restaurant downtown called The Harbord Room, located on Harbord Street. I’ve never really been to this part of town (university area) before when I lived in TO, so it was nice to visit it. The restaurant is across from Splendido, where I dined just prior to leaving TO in the summer.

Because HR had screwed up our reservations, we got a nice chilled glass of champagne to start. We shared a Calamari, Clams and Chorizo plate to start, and I had the Beef Paparadelle and he had the Chicken Breast with House Made Sausage. Both were delicious and just filling enough. Nothing from the dessert menu appealed, (and since we had shopped at Metro in the afternoon and loaded up on Haagen Dazs and Ben & Jerry’s), we didn’t order dessert at the restaurant.
