Some Like It Hot

In the 1959 film, "Some Like It Hot", Marilyn Monroe, Tony Curtis and Jack Lemmon were on the approach to a Florida beach. Donned with bathing caps and a huge beach ball in hand, the trio joined a chorus of girls wading in the water singing a Harry Carroll song - "By the sea, by the sea! By the beautiful sea! You and me, you and me. Oh how happy we'll be!"

Two weeks ago after I rolled into Westbank on a frigid and blustery winter morning, my aunt was insistent on trudging through the snow and ice to take me and my future sister-in-law to a new fish & chip place.  Mmm. Hot fish & chips are a welcoming comfort food on such days as these.

The first thing I noticed upon approach was

Jack It Up??

Frozen yummy in a glass.
Shredded cheddar bigger than fries.
Appies tickle my buddies.
Stomach bigger than eyes.
Tabasco on every table.
Entrees look so appealing.
Tv's over every shoulder.
Tabasco hanging from ceiling!

Like Candy For Breakfast

My new favourite place for beverages.
This week was full of firsts, including my first bubble tea.
I always thought that bubble tea would be a foamy, tea-style drink, you know? Bubbly. It's not. Rather, the owners/operators describe bubble tea as a fruit slushy.
I describe it as Heaven In My Mouth!
Just pick a fruit, any fruit

Could Not Even Take A Photo...

...because everything was drowning in some type of sauce.
The Kim Chi was buried in it. My glazed potatoes were swimming. My bbq'd meat couldn't come up for air and my rice was drenched.
Even my friend was given a

I Only Come Here To Drink...

...and watch the people go by.

There is no restaurant more perfectly suited for this purpose, than MILESTONES at Victoria's Inner Harbour.

The bar service is phenomenal, as well as patio and table service. But then again,
