We apologize for our long absence - things are finally starting to settle down for us, so hopefully we'll be able to go back to at least a monthly show schedule.

Also, the quality of this show isn't the best, but we figured if we ended up re-recording it (again), we would never get back into the saddle.  
This episode features a very big shout out to our local, Buster Rhino's.  We cover the Drunken Milkshake BBQ, Tap Take Overs for 2013 and the regular menu.  This has been too long in coming!
We also talk about our third annual visit to the Gourmet Food & Wine Expo in Toronto.  That trip was bigger and better than ever, and we look forward to next November to see what will be next.  Hopefully, the brewery from Niagara College will be back - Darryl, you need to get in contact with these folks.  ;)
Lastly, we finally made it out to Guu Izakaya and had a fantastic time with our dear friend, Jayne.  She even pipes in about delicious octopus balls!  A grand time was had by all.

Join us for a discussion on the origins and production of saké, and a tasting of four Junmai quality sakés: Sho Chiku Bai, Izumi, Hakusturu and Rihaku's Wandering Poet.  We tried to be as accurate as possible, while sticking to our motto of "drink it how you like it".  Much respect to the Toji near and far who make delicious saké - KANPAI!

    We have a quite a potpourri episode for you today.  Happy Labour/Labor Day!  First, two local restaurant reviews: The Bull Dog Pub and Gold Boat Fish & Chips (that we so erroniously called Golden Sail - sorry!!).  Then we move on to discuss another Oishimbo A La Carte Manga - Ramen and Gyoza are the topic of this edition.  Enjoy and have a great long weekend!

    Usually we avoid trendy places, instead looking for great food at affordable prices - well, aZian seems to offer all three under one roof, as well as one of our favourite cuisines - Asian!
