I was walking to the gym at lunchtime when our friends/former neighbours, Simone and Steve, drove by me and stopped to say "hello". They'd had an appointment downtown and on their way home, they were going to stop by one of their favourite restaurants in our 'hood, Queen Star Restaurant (Queen Street W/Dovercourt Road), for lunch. Hmmmm ... gym or have lunch with Simone and Steve who I haven't seen since they moved a year ago. Not a hard decision!
Simone ordered a grilled cheese sandwich and fries and Steve ordered their house special (chicken, pork, shrimp and veggies on noodles). They both enjoyed their meals. I felt like breakfast for lunch so got eggs and peameal bacon and it was good.
It was great to catch up with Simone and Steve! They obviously went there often when they live in the 'hood as they had a nice chat with the cooks.
