Bitondo's Pizzeria

Bitondo's Pizzeria is a small scaled pizzeria located in Little Italy. The place is well-known for their pizza slices, but I preferred their panzerotti over the pizza slices any day. 

The panzerotti ($6.00) is huge (bigger than my face) and full of delicious dough. The dough is crispy and the inside is filled with melted mozzarella cheese and tomato sauce. This place is definitely worth the visit if you are looking for cheap good food that will fill up your stomach.

The place is relatively small, and as far as I have seen; a majority of their customers ordered for take-out. However, there are a few lawn chairs and little tables inside if you want to sit down and eat.

Real Thailand Restaurant

I stumbled upon this Thai restaurant while walking home from an afternoon trip to the Royal Ontario Museum (ROM).

Real Thailand Restaurant is a mid-sized restaurant serving the standard Thai dishes at affordable prices. A majority of the dishes on the menu are under $10.00 each.

The green mango salad ($7.95) was appetizing; consisting of fresh veggies, crispy mango slices and the potion was generous. 

I have never tried the tom yum goong ($7.95), so I decided to ordered it this time around. Tom yum goong is a widely served spicy and sour soup in Thailand. I thought that the soup had a nice balance of being both spicy and soup. However, the portion was a little skimpy as my bowl only had two pieces of shrimps, and the rest were pretty much all noodles and veggies.

The pad thai ($8.95) was a little disappointing as it tasted rather sweet. It lacked the piquant tastes of hot peppers. I had to requests for extra peppers as my pad thai was not spicy at all. I don't recommend the pad thai here unless you're not a fan of spices.

In my opinion; I thought that the service was far superior compared to the food itself. The servers were attentive and friendly, without being too intrusive. Overall, I was full from my meal and had an OK experience at Real Thailand Restaurant.

The idea of starting up a food blog crossed my mind about one year ago. However, I never got around to it ... until today!! What more can I really say except that I love to eat food. People are always so surprised that I can actually eat quite a bit for someone of my petite frame (5'0 feet).

I will be posting a lot of food reviews (with photographs of the dishes). I hope to expand the blog and have other forms of writing materials (top 10 lists, original contents, opinion pieces, etc ...) in the future.

I know that everyone's taste are different, so please note that my reviews are based on my personal dining experience. So ... without further adieu; I would like to welcome everyone to A Food-A-Holic's Musing.
