I love Oriental. Thai, Chinese, Szechuan, Japanese, Vietnamese, Cantonese, you name it... I love it. I also like German, Italian, Greek, Lebanese (only if cooked properly, there's a lot of half-assed Lebanese restaurants here that serve you food that are days old), Carribean, Indian (duh), Canadian, Russian, and Cajun.

My godfather owns a Lebanese restaurant in Santa Clarita.. It's called Basha's Chicken. It's delicious. Yum.



*And his sister makes the best balklava. If anyone's ever in Canyon Country.. Go there. ;)

We have a place here called Bashas. But just that. No chicken in the name or anything. I'll only eat two things at Lebanese restaurants. The shish taouk with potatoes, rice, salad, pita, hummus and garlic cream sauce. Or the spicy sausage platter.

Balkava.. Mm. I love that. I really like the falafel platter. The chicken sandwich in pita is great with garlic sauce. He makes great tabuli (Sp?), too. Damn..I'm getting hungry just thinking about it.

Baklava is actually not Lebanese, but most people from around that area - Middle Eastern/Asian - serve baklava.

I haven't really experimented much, but right now I don't really like eating out much.

Pretty much it was made by all of them. The Greeks made it thin, the Armenians added some spices and the Arabs added different spices as well, and thus the modern version of baklava was created. It was founded by the Assyrians, and than the Greeks found out about it through the Assyrians and brought it to Athens.

I like eating out, but you never really know what's in the food, and plus it gets expensive. Lately I've been cooking international foods at home. I learned some Indian cooking this week, and in a few weeks I'm going to try and learn how to cook Vietnamese. And so on. My brother wants me to learn how to cook Lebanese. I don't think it's very hard. I have a lot of middle eastern spices at home that you can't find in america, so it's all about just cooking the meat in spices on a rotisserie stick. I'm pretty sure the potatoes aren't too hard to cook. Indian is pretty hard to learn, and I pretty much mastered it, so I don't think Lebanese will be that hard compared to how complicated Indian cooking can get.



Anyway, back on topic. I'll name some restaurants that I like going to.

- "Soupebol" in Pointe-Claire Montreal. It's an oriental restaurant. They serve Thai, Szechuan, Chinese, and Japanese food, but they mostly serve Vietnamese food which is their speciality such as their popular soup called Tom Gai soup (which is why the restaurant is called Soup Bowl in English).

- "Jardin de Penin" in Pierrefonds Montreal. It's an oriental restaurant also. They serve Thai, Chinese, Vietnamese, and Japanese food, but they mostly have Szechuan which is their specialty. I love eating their Szechuan combo platters. You get a soup (I usually get Hot and Sour soup), appetizer (I usually go for the hunan pork dumplings in hunan sauce - which is like a sweet peanut butter sauce, it's amazing), and a main course meal of three dishes.

- "Arahova" in Pointe-Claire Montreal. It's a Greek restaurant. They serve Gyros and Souvlaki platters that are just amazing, and they give you so much for a good price. They also have a pretty extensive beer and liquor list. It's great for when you have family visiting or you're having a party of some sort. You can have them book a table for you and they also have tables outside on the patio for when it's nice outside.

- "Jack Astor's" in D.D.O. Montreal. They serve a bit of everything. It's not really international cooking, but it's pretty good cooking either way. And they have a great staff and all the staff have nicknames, like one time there was this guy who was serving us and he was named Peanut. They have one of the most awesome oreo sundaes in existence. The thing I really like about it is the staff, they actually have a sense of humor which makes eating there all the more enjoyable. Plus you can book a huge party there. Last time I went there was like 30-40 people seated at this one long table.



Wow. I can write about more restaurants, but I won't. I should become like a journalist for restaurants here.
