Wedding cake?

If you're looking for a simple/traditional wedding cake, I would suggest Afroditi (http://www.afroditi.ca/fr/). I got a plain vanilla cake from there for my wedding, which sounds kind of boring, but it was fresh, moist and delicious. It also didn't taste "fake" or overly sweet. It wasn't too expensive either. I think I paid $85 for a 30-person cake.

Where to Eat in Halifax : 4-day Trip in July

Hehe :) OK, I read a few of the posts and some of it is coming back to me. I went to The Economy Shoe Shop (fun place!), It's All Greek to Me, Tarek's, and Mezza. I can't remember the other ones but we were happy! It's a little late, but thanks again everyone :)

I completely forgot to report back about Halifax and it was so long ago I can't remember! I had an amazing time though and Halifax is such a friendly city. I ate a lot of Fish and Chips, mmm.

arashall,

Thanks for the response. We will be staying at the Residence Inn Lakefront Circle. We are used to traffic so that won't be a problem. I enjoy musems so I will look into that as well, thanks :)

Lambowner,

Thanks for the reply. The website you listed is a great resource and I will definitely use it. Jan/Feb seems like a nice time to visit -- not too warm and it beats being in the snow! We do indeed have transportation, so like you said I am sure we will learn our way around :) Thanks!

NightMan,

Thanks for the reply. I am not staying in the Woodlands by choice (my husband will be there for work). I haven't had the chance to research the area yet but thanks for the warning :) I will check out the restaurants/grocers you mentioned. It's a great start. We will be spending any free weekends we have in the city, which I am really looking forward to. Any suggestions on what to eat, see or do is very appreciated.

Hello,

I am coming to Houston from Montreal and would like to know of some good restaurants in the Woodlands area (dinner only). I will be there for quite a few weeks, so I will need a bit of variety :) Furthermore, I will be preparing lunches at "home", so if anyone can tell me where I should buy groceries/produce, it would be much appreciated. Thanks!

Thanks for the reply. I just checked out Athens' website and the menu is extensive. I love Greek food so looking forward to it.

OMG TINI IS AWESOME and CHEAP!!!

I tried this place and it was pretty good. I believe the prices have increased a bit though (I could be wrong but I don't remember it being as cheap as stated above). The service was very attentive and we did not have to wait long for our food. I would go back if in the area. The BYOB is a plus with the SAQ nearby!

What are people's thoughts on Mezza? I bought a voucher for it from a group buying site. It seems yummy, but am I wrong in thinking it is overpriced? Maybe I am just used to cheaper Middle Eastern placed in Mtl, but a 3-kebab dinner for 2 for $60 -- eek!

Where to Eat in Halifax : 4-day Trip in July

Hello,

I am visiting Halifax for 4 days in July from Montreal. It is my first time going to the East Coast and I am so excited!

Trying to figure out where to stay, what to do, and of course what to eat!

I am on somewhat of a tight budget, but am also willing to splurge a little for something great. I like all kinds of food, especially hole-in-the walls that only locals know about.

I guess I should also try some fabulous seafood while there.

Any suggestions please? Likely staying in Dartmouth (near Ferry to Halifax) but may have a vehicle.

Thanks!

Restaurant Behind Tadoor et Grille in the WI

Hi,

I was in the West Island this evening and I noticed there is a new restaurant behind Tandoor et Grille (former BSweet). I can't remember what it is called right now. Does anyone know anything about it? My friend seems to think it is Russian.

Thanks
