Niagara Falls, ON CA: Day Two


Hi there my lovelies! I hope you are doing well. Today, I want to talk to you about our day two of our Niagara Falls ON tour. We started our day two using the free 48 hours WeGo passes that we as part of the hotel package. We took the Green line to Niagara Parks. Our First stop was Butterfly Conservatory.

Butterfly Conservatory:

This butterfly house was opened in December 1996 with over 2000 tropical butterflies from over 60 different species. It was a wonderful experience watching the different species of butterfly and hoping one would land on us. 

Botanical Garden:

The Niagara Parks Botanical Gardens was established in 1936 with 99 acres of beautifully maintained gardens. This beautiful garden include everything from perennials, rhododendrons to herbs and vegetables. Additionally, guided horse and carriage tours of the garden are available daily during the summer months.

My lovelies! We walked so many miles the second day in the scorching heat but we enjoyed it so much. After walking walking miles in the hot summer day, we the Green line back to Rapid Rocks and spent some more time watching the Horseshoe falls and ended the day with some more fireworks from the hotel room.

Niagara Falls, ON CA: Day One


Hi there my lovelies! I hope you are doing well. We are officially in the Spring season right now but when headed out of the house it was in the 30s outside felt still like winter. I cannot wait till this weekend and the 70s. Summer is creeping up upon us and everyone must have some idea what they want to do for their summer this year. If you don’t let me tell one of my summer adventure from last year. We went on a five-day summer trip to Niagara Falls, Ontario Canada. Our adventures had lots of good sides but there were some disappointing sides as well. I will divide up my trip into several posts.

This is our second trip to Niagara Falls. The first time we visited the falls was four years ago on the American side. We were quite underwhelmed by the American side other than walk through the rainbow brid.

In order to get the best deals, I made the bookings months ahead. Additionally, as an American Express Hilton Honors reward member, I used my points to pay for my hotel at the Embassy Suites at Falls View and got free continental breakfast.

Once we entered the room at 28th floor, I was memorized by the breathtaking view of the Horseshoe Falls and its glorious rushing water splashing and gushing with now care in mind. I knew then that if nothing, I have the front-row seat to such spectacular view without the hassle of getting sunburned in the high humidity.

Nonetheless, after a brief rest and soaking in the breathtaking view, we had lunch at the IHOP at the Tower Hotel with the Falls view. The view was amazing for sure. However, the food was disappointing and mediocre at best with a bill 160 ca dollar for 4 people. What a waste!

After a disappointing meal, we took the local WEGO bus to Table Rock Welcome Center, just next to the Horseshoe Falls. During the sultry heat, the cool mist from the falls was a blessing in disguise. We headed north towards Niagara Parkway and went to Queens Victoria Park.

Queen’s Victoria Park:

Queen Victoria Park is the crown jewel of Niagara Parks and is the main area to go to view the majestic Niagara Falls. It’s landmarked by the Niagara escarpment, the Niagara Gorge, and the Niagara River, and features a prized collection of both indigenous and international flora for the world to enjoy. I loved the endless collection of roses. The scorching heat forced us to walk back to our hotel until the evening with torturing long inkling walk.

Oakes Garden Theatre:

In the evening, we one stop, that is to Oakes Garden Theatre, located n Niagara Falls Ontario Canada directly across from the American Falls. It’s a great place to relax and enjoy the scenery. The contour of the surreal landscape creates a cured pergola overlooking a central amphitheater. I was genuinely surprised to see such low foot traffic. However, that allowed me to take a moment to soak in the tranquility of the beautiful garden overlooking the beautiful American falls and forgot about the worries of the world.

After a long day and walk, we ended the day with a grand fireworks display from our hotel room.

Wok N’ Roll Karaoke Restaurant at Adams Morgan, Washington DC – Is it All About The Sushi?


Hi there my lovelies! Hope you are doing well. Today I was awakened by the roaring sounds of the high winds banging on my windows and doors. I could not sleep. Hence, I thought I right down about my last week trip to my hometown, Washington DC, and my review of food from my old neighborhood.

As I have mentioned in my early blogs, I grew up in the Adams Morgan section of Washington D.C. The advantage of growing in such neighborhood is the exposure to diverse course and food palate. I was fortunate enough to get such exposure. However, now I leave in the suburb and don’t get such exposure. Nonetheless, being in the D.C. metro area I try my best to keep my exposure to food exposure open within my dietary restriction.

While walking down my old neighborhood after few years, we came across Wok and Roll Restaurant at 2400 18th Street NW (at the corner of Belmont and 18th St). It’s a fusion Asian restaurant. To be honest, when I was in D.C, there use be Belmont Kitchen in that location. Though I didn’t know much about the restaurant, I went in with family because I was craving for some sushi. At the same time, we wanted some Asia food.

When we walked in there were only one other person beside us. We were seated promptly. Once we decided on our order it took us a while to get the attention of the waiter to write down our order. My lovelies, I don’t if I mentioned this before, I used work in restaurant, hence, have some minimum expectation from waiters. Once, our order was taken, it took a while to food come. In this scenario, I was more understanding because we had some dietary restriction and the staff were quite accommodating. Below is my review of food orders:

Spicy Lover Sushi:

This specialty sushi includes spicy salmon, avocado, inside topped with spicy tuna and tobiko. It comes in 8 pieces. When I do out to eat, I not only look for texture but also taste and this specialty sushi delivered both. This is the best sushi I ever had. I suggest when you try your food close your eyes and feel the texture, temperature, and the taste slowly with each bite. It will allow you to appreciate your food in a whole new way. If you don’t know what tobiko is it is the Japanese word for flying fish roe. It is most widely known for its use in creating certain types of sushi. Sometimes, the color of these small eggs are changed in appearance, other natural ingredients are used to accomplish the change, such as squid ink to make it black, yuzu to make it pale orange (almost yellow), or even wasabi to make it green and spicy. A serving of tobiko can contain several pieces, each having a different color. If you visit Wok and Roll don’t forget to visit the Spicy Lover Sushi.

Hot and Sour Soup:

I was underwhelmed by the hot and sour soup. Not did it have a strong soy sauce flavor it was sour as well. If you like the strong soy sauce flavor this soup is for your. I needed to something to keep a kick to my taste bud, not overwhelm it with soy sauce taste.

Eggplant in Garlic Sauce:

Even though this dish comes as hot we decided to order it as medium hot and we were not disappointed, actually my family was not disappointment. The reason I am saying my family is because, I am allergic to Eggplant but I wrote every comment they had about the dish. Per my conversation with them, it was the best flavored dish we have ordered from Wok and Roll. It was full of flavor, which stays in your mouth.
Beef Hunan Style:

Beef Hunan Style:

The Beef Hunan Style tasted nice with the right amount of spice and flavor. This is good flavorful dish to try for someone with lots of allergies.

Beef with Green Pepper:

This dish comes with beef with green and yellow bell pepper in a spiced sauce. However, I was really underwhelmed by this dish. There were more peppers than there were beef and the spice level was off making the dish bland and underwhelming.

Curry Chicken:

Curry Chicken was full of spice but not the kind that you may want to eat again. I overpowering smell and taste of curry flavor made the dish too strong for my taste.

Overall, Wok and Roll is a decent place with great sushi and some mouth-watering Chinese dishes. However, the dished can be too overpowering and underwhelming. If you are anytime near this area please try the food in this restaurant and let know your opinion. I would give it a 3 and a half start just for their lack of service in the beginning, and some flavorless food. However, they the restaurant was nice an class and cozy.
