Happy Thanksgiving, Fellow Canadians!

This week's episode covers another installment of Oishimbo (this time an overview of Japanese cuisine), and reviews of a local Italian bakery and the Moon Festival offerings of Mandarin Buffet (pictures coming of the later as soon as they're off Tracy's phone).

This weeks episode is a rerun of our May 18th 2009 show about Canadian breakfast featuring The Rainbow in Oshawa and Hill's in Orillia. We're currently working on a cereal episode and need to do some further research before we put voice to recorder. Also, we might as well upload this one again since podbean seems to have misplaced the original ep.

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!

We have been wanting to do a cigar episode for a long time, so here's a not so brief overview of one of our favourite after dinner treats.

No matter where you live, there is bound to be a farmer's market near you. Eating locally has never been easier! This episode is about just some of the many prepared food vendors at the Oshawa Center farmer's market.

This is a bit of a pot porri, with a short review about a great Persian place in Oshawa called Cyrus, discussion of french presses, fresh made Naan bread from Indian Biyani in Toronto and how to make a tandoori oven right in your own back yard (please follow all local and fire safety laws!).

We greatly apologize for the lateness of our 50th episode, but it couldn't be helped since Sheila spent all of last week in Toronto working security for the G20 Summit.  Here's a great episode for you though, of a rural Ontario tradition - Haugen's BBQ!  They have amazing rotisserie chicken, and are a hub for many car cruises.

Ep 49 - aZian

08Jun10

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!

This week's episode discusses a curry restaurant in Oshawa, as well as our respective first times eating at Indian or "Curry" restaurants.  Mmmmm!  Pardon the gratuitous Red Dwarf references.  Tracy also does a quick review of yet another book about the pleasures of tasty adult beverages - Everyday Drinking by Kingsley Amis.

It's been one year (roughly) of doing the podcast, and while we always try to do positive and professional reviews, we thought we'd take a page from Spongebob's Opposite Day and do an episode about the worst of the worst. Submitted for your entrainment, a little bit of uncharacteristic snark from the Fat Chicks!

We understand that you may not agree, and that we may be ripping on your favourite place. For that, we apologize for our poor luck at being unfortunate enough to receive bad food/bad service. Please direct all hatemail to: zweifatchicks (at) gmail (dot) com. :)

This ep does also talk about Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution, although not in a snarky way.
