A few months ago, I spent some time doing volunteer work in Kenya through the volunteer agency International Volunteer HQ. I stayed with a Kenyan family and volunteered at an orphanage, Internally Displaced Persons camps, and with the Masai (warrior tribes in Kenya). It was an extremely moving experience. Read more.

    Sakae Sushi

    I used to think sushi restaurants were mostly created equal.  I’m a fan of sushi and everything else on the all-you-can-eat menu, but for the most part, they were united in their deliciousness.

    Then I ate at Sakae.

    Located on Mount Pleasant south of Eglinton, Sakae is a sushi lover’s dream.  Their sashimi is the freshest I have ever tasted; I couldn’t get enough of the butterfish and salmon.

    Their AYCE menu is well-rounded, and the a la carte options are diverse as well.  Their business hours are a bonus; most places are open for lunch and dinner and closed in between, but Sakae opens at 11:30am on weekdays and 12:00pm on weekends, and stays open right through to 10:00pm.  This is pretty useful for midday sushi cravings.

    AYCE is reasonable at $16.99 on weekdays and $18.99 on weekends.  I encourage you to try it.  And say hello to the girl sitting at the table in the corner enjoying her tea, sake, and sashimi- that will be me.

    I want to go. After a 40 week ban on sushi, I need to binge on it. So yummy!
