Yesterday we met up with old friends Eric and Katie who were back in town from Sarnia, ON for the weekend. We realised we hadn't seen each other since June 2008! Since the weather was amazing we played some outdoor mini golf and just had a great time catching up.
For dinner we all seemed to want something small and simple so I thought of the Japanese ramen house that J and I like to go to at Commerce Gate on Hwy 7. AFTER walking in and being seated we realised the place had changed owners (?) so the menu had also changed, including no sushi anymore!
One new thing that caught my attention was the new business card/chopstick holder on the table settings. I was quite impressed with this cute business card idea as I've never seen this done before.
Isn't it such a cute idea with the heart cut out? Would have been more useful as a business card though if they had included their address and phone number on the card.
As for the food, I think I liked the old menu more with the House Special Ramen. Now they still have a decent variety on the menu, but it just wasn't the same. However, one thing they still had was the crispy ice-cream, which we quite enjoyed for dessert.
It was vanilla and black sesame ice-cream rolled in what seemed like crushed corn flakes and then topped with chocolate syrup. Yumm. But so simple to make that we think we'll try it at home someday =)
It was definitely great to see Eric and Katie. Hope to see them again this summer instead of waiting another 3 years to meet up!
