I was looking for a new place to try out for lunch in New West and found a bright looking restaurant on 12th Street called D Roti Shak. By “bright”, you only have to look at the picture below to see what I mean… each wall was painted in a different bright colour. Read the rest of this entry
So, I was listening to some ABBA before lunch and felt the need for some Mexican food. How does a Swedish pop group translate into Mexican food you might ask? Well, the song that I was listening to was “Fernando”. Read the rest of this entry
