Where do you go if you're craving Japanese noodles for lunch? A noodle house of course. Kenzo Noodle house is a famous Japanese Noodle house in Bloor St. just outside UofT. They serve, well, you guessed it, noodles - and darn good ones too.

The restaurant was a little on the small side but it was not so bad and the interior was pretty cozy too, fitting environment for a noodle house. It gets pretty busy during the lunch rush with students and workers alike flocking the small house for some lunch noodles. Despite the chaos, the wait staff was quite calm and welcoming finding everyone seats very fast. Kudos Kenzo!
The menu was not very big which makes choosing easier and faster especially during the peak hours. I got myself the Yakisoba Noodle for this visit. I had yakisoba noodles before in other places but I wasn't expecting what I got. A generous serving of it was served on a sizzling hot plate topped with loads of meat and vegetables. It also had thin onion peels that flapped around due to the heat which added to the presentation. I thought the plate was alive when it arrived on my table. You have to see this in action! The taste just added to the goodness. The noodles were very fresh and the toppings were also fresh. The taste for me was just right and the generous serving makes this a filling lunch item for the price - us uni folks don't have a lot of money to spend you know.
Kenzo Noodle House was a delight. Despite getting there during the lunch rush, the friendly wait staff, and the awesome food made it all worthwhile. Definitely worth a look and I will definitely come back to try out the other items on the menu. Kudos Kenzo!
 
 
There's a new food place in UofT! I stumbled upon this new establishment as I was walking down College St. to get my usual shawarma dinner. The name of the new spot is "The Saj." Intrigued by this new sight, I walked inside to see what's up. It's just like any typical food place on campus where you go to the counter and order your food. Some cool design on the wall adds a nice touch.What makes this place unique though is the way they serve the food. The Saj offers wraps and pizza. There are different kinds of pizzas like cheese, pepperoni, and their special one, The Saj pizza. All pizzas are served as a whole and for the price, I say they are worth it. I haven't personally tried the wraps since this was my first time there.
So what is unique about this place? When you order an item (pizza or wrap), they bake the bread in front of you. They whip out some dough, put it in a baking machine to bake either the pizza crust or the wrap, and put the ingredients all in front of you. This is a welcome change from the typical pre-made stuff that other places offer. The cook time may be longer but the food is super fresh and tastes better because of its freshness. The staff is also very friendly which is always a great thing especially for a new establishment.
I ordered "The Saj" pizza for $6.99 which was a 12-inch pizza, enough to feed 2-3 people for lunch. For that price, it was a steal! I had to choose which meat goes on the pizza and two types of veggies. I chose chicken, mushrooms, and green peppers (see photo below). It was amazing to see the whole process from ordering to baking to receiving the box of fresh pizza. And the taste? Wonderful! One of the freshest pizzas I've tasted in a while and it's not as greasy as the pizzas of the other major brands. Healthier!
Overall, The Saj is a very cozy place to hang out, get some work done, and of course, eat some fresh healthy food cooked fresh right in front of your eyes. I can totally see myself and my friends coming back for more.
 
 
School started 2 weeks ago for me in University of Toronto. Starting third year Computer Science was both exciting and sad. Exciting because I get to see my university friends again and because I'm a photographer for my student council which means that I go to events and take photos (If you don't already know, I love photography!). Sad because summer is over and this means that I will need to wake up early in the mornings to get to school and come home late to do school work or go to my part time job (CN Tower). 

Two weeks in and I'm already swamped by assignments, readings, and other responsibilities for the term or even longer! I can't really complain because this is an integral part of university life but it just sucks that I went from having fun everyday doing almost nothing to barely having any time of the day to finish all the tasks! I don't mind though, I'll get through it! Just gotta get used to the work habits again. 

I still have a lot of photos taken during the summer that I still haven't edited (due to school) but I'm trying to find time to edit those pictures so I can post them up here on the website and other places. So until then, stay in school, and keep shooting! =D
 
 
Victoria College Building
Hello Everyone!

It's been over a month since the last time I posted something new to this site. You can blame my new summer job at Toronto's CN Tower hehe. Well, even though I've been very busy at work, I still managed to walk around the city with trusty camera and snap some interesting photos for you! Actually, this latest addition in the website was taken a month ago before I started working and just didn't get the chance to upload them. So here they are! The photos this time around are photos from the University of Toronto again but I concentrated on the eastern side of the Campus where most of the Victorian style buildings are located. Alright that's that! You can click the photo above to see the newest photos in my collection. And you may also play the video below to see the photo slideshow of the newest photos made for YouTube. =D Even though I'm busy pictures are still continually being taken and edited by yours truly. In fact, there is already another batch of photos just waiting to be edited and shared to you guys. And don't forget that I will also be putting a new Set in the website called "Toronto from the Skies" which will have different photos of the city from the top of the Tallest Tower in the World, the CN Tower! =D Stay tuned! And Enjoy my newest photos!

Cheers,

Hello All,

I just want to let everyone know that I uploaded a new set of photos in the website. Actually, I uploaded the photos about a week ago. I just didn't have time to make an announcement about it. Anyway, as promised, the new set of photos feature various buildings of the University of Toronto. It's pretty fun walking around campus after class or on days I don't have class and just click away with my camera =D. You can find the pictures here:

Buildings of UofT - A new set of photos featuring the buildings of the University of Toronto

Hope you like them! Don't forget to hit me up with emails regarding questions, comments, and suggestions regarding my work. Until next time! Have fun taking pictures!

Hi Everyone!

I can't believe it's been over 4 months since the last time I actually put something new in this site. It really can't be helped since I was busy doing a bunch of university work all semester long. Now, I've had a good break, I managed to edit my pictures and now they are posted and ready to be shown for you guys :). This time around I focused on the architecture of some of the buildings of my university (makes sense since I'm there pretty much 24/7 doing homeworks lol). I have one photoshoot dedicated for those pictures posted. These pictures can be found in:

Buildings of UofT - NEW SET OF PICTURES ADDED

Also, I added another new picture in the Urban section. you can see it here:

Urban - NEW PICTURE ADDED.

There you have it! After a long time in silence, I finally managed to post the pictures I've been meaning to show you guys for months now. Hope you guys enjoy my newest set of pictures =) and hope everyone had a great Christmas and New Year celebration. Until next time! Always carry your camera and your imagination! 

Cheers,

Hello All,

I feel really bad that I wasn't able to update this website at all since September. As much as I would like to, I couldn't find the time to do so because I have a lot of University of work to do. I have new pictures that I have saved somewhere in my computer which is basically pictures that highlight the architecture of University of Toronto. But I still haven't found the time to sit down and actually edit them. Furthermore, the collection is not really done yet because I still want to take more pictures of the campus especially during the night because some of the more classical buildings in the campus actually look dramatic during nightfall. So I am hoping that i will get those photos taken by November; edit and share them to you guys by December of this year. For sure, I'll have something really neat to share with you guys before the year is over, so stay tuned for that =). For now, please take a look at my current collection of galleries and hope you like what I have to offer in this website so far.

Cheers,
Angelo Maralit
