Hi everyone! It has been awhile since I've posted something substantial. Here we go...
So I've been crazy busy this year balancing work, school and pratices. I've been even busier for the past month, and a bit, because I've been sick a couple of times. Catching up on school work and working at the school has taken a great bit of my time.
I've been craving some tasty French onion soup for sometime now, but I haven't found the time to go out for some. I had recently heard that Humber's new bar/club/restaurant, LinX, serves a pretty yummy version. So, last Friday after my classes were over my friend, Kelvin, his friend, Karen, and I decided to try out.
Kelvin ordered the fish and chips. He said that it was decent. It didn't look like he enjoyed it that much, but with him, food is food.
I ordered a plate of sweet potato fries, to share with Karen, and French onion soup. The fries weren't good at all. If you do go to LinX, don't get the sweet potato fries. Firstly, the fries didn't really taste like sweet potato. Some of them even tasted like they weren't cooked, while all the others were soggy. Gross.
The French onion soup was heavy. As you can see in the photo, there's quite a bit of grease. Despite there being a lot of onions, it tasted like Paula Deen was in charge of caramalizing the onions - too much butter. Also, because of the amount of onions in the one serving, there was very little soup. In fact, the soup's composition was this: lots of buttery onions, a soggy garlic bread, a layer of cheese (that wasn't broiled long enough to my liking) and a spoonful or two of soup. It was sad.
Looking over the small menu, I doubt I'll ever go back for any food - unless they decide to improve upon their selection and lower the prices. It's just too expensive for the quality of food we receive.
On another note, one of my assignments was to shoot beer or a pour shot of an alcoholic/alcoholic-looking beverage. I chose the pour shot route and here's the results of this past Monday's photo shoot.
These drink shots were taken with a Hasselblad H3DII-39 with the HC 150 mm, f/3.2 lens.
Hope you have a great weekend. Oh, shout out to Ange: happy birthday!!
