We like to think of ourselves as being culinary adventurous, but travel costs a lot of money, so until we get a radio or TV show we have to make due with the magic of books to transport us to exotic edibles and forbidden foods.  Tom's book (believe us, Mr. Bowles, it's better we refer to you informally in the show so we'll stop butchering your last name) is just the ticket to reading about dishes that you could only imagine yourself eating (or not eating).

This episode we review an regional Ontario chain - Lick's!  We also found *another* all you can eat sushi place in Durham Region that kicks major butt and some tasting notes on Forty Creek Canadian Whiskey.  And if you are from Pittsburgh or are a transplant from that great city, check out the Burghseye View podcast for some candid talk about... well... everything from the 'Burgh.

This weeks episode is about an Oshawa fixture and a new food-centric manga that we found!

Spencer came up to visit us the week of St. Patrick's. He's a fan of the podcast so there were a bunch of places he wanted to go, and as if we were going to deny him! The three of us checked out Rolling Pot (no pics, sorry - just check out our previous pictures and superimpose Spencer's jovial face into the scenes of your choice), The Rainbow, Viva Burritos, Go Believe Sushi, Teddy's and picked up pepperettes at the Three Little Pigs. Having him as a guest host and honourary Fat Chick was a blast! Hope you enjoy the episode as much as we enjoyed recording it.

In this week's episode, we review a great local sushi place.  If that's not enough delicious, delicate raw fish for you, Tracy also does a book report on Sushi Economy.  If that's too much raw fish for you, I suggest going back and listening to Episode 8 - Burgers!

Feeling the post-Christmas crunch?  Or just looking for a cheap, quick meal?  Nothing stretches an already maximized budget like ramen noodles!  A Chinese delicacy that was only available from restaurants until a post World War II Taiwanese-Japanese inventor pioneered a way to make them at home.  In this episode, we taste six different ramen noodle packages.

The 19th was Tracy's birthday, so we decided to check out a sushi place that everyone had been telling us about. Sushi Mountain's lunch buffet was awesome!

This week's episode pays homage to that modern marketplace, the mall; specifically, the food court section.  There's usually something for everyone, so grab your tray and let's take a look around!

"The pleasant experience of eating something you have never had before,  will extend your life by 75 days!"  -- Japanese Proverb.

Ok, not everyone will like sushi, but everyone should *try* it (unless you have a fish allergy).  And, even if this Japanese delicacy isn't for you, please consider going to a sushi restaurant to try some of the other dishes there, especially if your friends are going!
