Lunch on the train. But before that the train was delayed for 2 hours. I didn't leave Toronto til 12:30am.

Salmon cake, I think. The inside is pasty.

I haven't eaten so many burgers since my teenage years.

It was a good day. I watched autumn from my private compartment window.

It's really hard trying to make any photo on a moving train! Some did turn out, many did not.

We had lunch yesterday at the Matunuck Oyster Bar, in Matunuck, RI. I started off with a half dozen (of your biggest oysters), which were not that big at all. Deb had broiled oysters with spinach and garlic butter. The oysters got even smaller under the broiler. This was followed by an order of steamers for Deb and some mussels in wine and herb garlic butter broth, for myself. I took a picture (from our table) of the tide flowing into Ninigret Pond, where the oyster farm is located. We did see a small seal swimming into the pond on the tide. The oyster experience was sort of disappointing so, on the way home, we stopped at my favorite fish market for some bigger ones (you pick them out of the ice yourself) and some steamers, which will be dinner tonight.

They're just beef mince pies in a gravy. Ubiquitous here at kids parties (ok, and adults) hence the name party pies.

I had one roasted yellow pepper left over from last night's dinner, along with a load of its intended stuffing of spicy lentils, so I re-purposed the lot into a lentil and roasted pepper soup. Added some crisp bacon to give it more oomph. Served with home made bread.

More Thanksgiving leftovers for me. I'd stuffed a buttercup squash with wild rice, raisins, cranberries and caramelized onions as one of my side dishes, and warmed up a bowl of that for lunch today with a dab of butter. No photo, because after being scooped, packaged, refrigerated and scooped again, it wasn't especially photogenic.

Lukewarm soup in the wilderness today but it didn't matter because I saw King of the Arctic! Looked at him and he looked back at me! A tremendous moment for me to be locking eyes with this majestic beast (in his own natural environment no less). Without the glass and steel of the frame of the massive vehicle it would be too uncomfortable. Just the window was between me and the male polar bear! I also saw a super fluffy, super white, super cute arctic hare, a mother bear with 2 cubs, 2 silver foxes, and many ptarmigans. What a wonderful day!

My last lunch in Winnipeg, at the airport, very reluctantly.

Burgers everywhere

My plane to the north.

A couple of minutes before touchdown.

Most people got off here, some people waited for another connection. Cool number plate. Check out the (written) native dialect.

Goodbye Rankin Inlet. It was nice seeing you. After about an hour the plane turned around and I went with it. My travel companion and I were the only 2 people to get off at the next destination. The plane went back to Winnipeg.

And this is where I am at the moment. 0C during the day, with on and off (sometimes intense) flurries all day and night.

How cool to see a polar bear (sorry). I totally agree with your travel sentiments, lukewarm soup notwithstanding. Thanks for the ride @BonVivant. :)

Raw oysters with lemon.

 

These were the biggest oysters ever! I bought 8 as usual but they cost twice as much as usual - they are sold by weight and were double the weight of the 8 oysters I usually buy. They were also filled with liquor. It was like drinking oyster soup.

They were however the most stubborn oysters I've encountered. Shucking them was hard work. But more than worth it!

More shishito peppers, fresh picked, wok blistered. Grab them by the stem, touch the tip in sea salt, just a few grains, and eat all, but them stem.

Lunch at small, somewhat run down Sichuan restaurant in Causeway Bay, HK, called "Yu". Marinated eggplant, Husband & wife lung slices (albeit with beef shank instead), Dan Dan mian and Dumplings in special broth (very thick chicken broth, a house specialty). Delicious and filling. My mouth is still tingling from the Sichuan pepper ...

Nothing is better than frying in lard.

Nothing.  Do not quote me on this.

I did not manage to visit a Japanese curry house last week in Tokyo, so clearly there was a distinct craving lingering in my head for a couple of days. Fixed it today with spicy Tonkatsu pork curry with udon at Shirokuma ("Polar bear"), Shun Tak branch. It's not the most glorious, but it hit the spot ... Oishii !

Lunch at a rather new Izakaya-style restaurant at the midlevels, Etsuya. Sampling set lunch, all in all for 150 HKD, a steal.
