Cafe 28

Cafe 28 place is incredibly cheap just like a lot of other places in Markham/ Richmond Hill area. Its definitely a hidden gem, decent food, well presented but obviously not top notch quality – but hey! you get what you pay for! =p

This place is definitely worth a try and definitely worth the price!

Cafe 28 has a Buy 1 Get 1 Free Deal for $19.99 from Monday-Wednesday nights & another Buy 1 Get 1 Free for $29.98 from Thursdays-Sundays. I’ve tried both deals and find the weekend deal is better in terms of quality of the food. Because they don’t have a website (yet), I took a picture on the menu =]

 Caesar Salad 

Baked Lobster Linguini with Mushrooms

  • I ordered the baked lobster linguini and loved it! The sauce wasn’t too heavy or creamy they made it just perfect
  • My only complaint would be there wasn’t that much meat in the lobster

Angus AAA Ribeye Steak 8 oz. 

New Zealand Spring Lamb Rack 

Sole (Basa) Fillet & Tiger Shrimp 

Heres the $29.98 weekend deal menu!

LUMA

LUMA is one of O&B newest (second newest to be exact) restaurant located in the heart of the entertainment district of downtown Toronto. I was tres exicted to eat here as many foodies have raved about this place during summerlicious 🙂

Overall, I enjoyed my experience – our server was attentive, the interior is very modern – we were seated by the glass window so we got a great view of King Street.  But I mainly enjoyed my experience at Luma because I unexpectedly enjoyed my dish. I ordered the free range chicken – I am usually hesitant to order chicken at any restaurant in general because it usually comes out extremely dry; but I decided to give it a try and they made it exactly the way i liked it =]

Free Range Chicken ($28) 

  • My chicken was really juicy and cooked the way I liked it
  • Loved the mashed potatoes but a lot of oil was added as you can see surrounding the mash

Steak Frites striploin steak, northern wood mushrooms, truffle parmesan fries ($28)
