T-Shirts and Whey

Posted in Clothing by karoumy on April 30, 2013

I was in New York last year and made the usual UNIQLO run.

A friend describes UNIQLO as a Japanese version of The Gap with better clothes. Everything is super cheap and decent quality. I usually stick to the basics and gifts for family. The stores are elusive in North America. As far as I know there are only currently two in New York City.

There are UNIQLO coming to Toronto rumours.

On this trip I bought something called HEATTECH™. Fancy name. It’s supposed to keep you extra warm.

Back in Toronto I read the package and learned that it had whey protein in the ingredients. I guess if you get really cold you can eat the shirt to warm up.

Long story short I gave it away because wearing it would just remind me of my mistake. You can read more about this technology in their press release.

I think the Rza said it best on the intro to the Genius’ Labels:

That you know you gotta read the label
You gotta read the label
If you don’t read the Label you might get poisoned



Graceful Vegetarian Restaurant Dim Sum Menu

Posted in Restaurants by karoumy on April 29, 2013

Here is the latest Dim Sum menu I have for Graceful Vegetarian Restaurant. It changes from time to time but not usually by much. Here’ a post with pictures of some of my favourite dishes. Most of the items on the menu are vegan but it never hurst to ask if you’re not sure. If you give off a vegan vibe they might ask you if you order something with eggs.


Dim Sum at Graceful Vegetarian Restaurant

Graceful Vegetarian Restaurant is my favourite restaurant.

I’ve been eating there for years. The food is always perfect, the atmosphere is nice and the service is great. Living in Toronto you get accustomed to good Chinese food (Indian as well, saving that for other posts).

I’ve also been fortunate enough to try other vegetarian Chinese restaurants in other cities and finding vegetarian Dim Sum isn’t that common. Toronto has other Vegetarian Dim Sum restaurants as well but they don’t come close.

Dim Sum is served every day from 10:30am to 4pm. Parking can get pretty crazy on the weekends since it’s right behind Pacific Mall. Try to go during the mall’s off hours. Either way it’s worth it.

Here are some of my favourite dim sum dishes.
