New and Old Halifax

I think the new Halifax Central Library (2014, designed by the Danish based international firm schmidt hammer lassen architects in JV with a local firm) nicely complements the colourful historical storefronts on Queen St. Apparently many Haligonians would strongly disagree.

It was the first modern architectural project to be built here in decades and was very controversial. But there are now several new commercial mid rise contemporary projects and renovations under construction in the area.

I'm just going to assume that every single one of my beloved Irish relatives is voting YES in today's same sex marriage referendum.

If not, don't ever let me find out.

The Irish election was  refreshing news for the last few days, a good change from the usual  sad world stories of the past months and quite different from my first visit 50 years ago.

Recommended. Small, better than basic Motel. Reasonable rates. Warm welcome from the owner at the front desk. Clean, functional but comfortable room. Includes a continental breakfast buffet with a variety of breads, rolls, cereal, yoghurt, fruit, juices, coffee and teas.

Rol San has become my default dim sum restaurant. The food is great, although as everything is ordered off little menu sheets with rather basic descriptions (no rolling carts here), its probably best to have had some prior experience with dim sum. That said, I can honestly say I've never regretted unintentionally ordering anything. Orders are delivered piping hot from the kitchen as they are ready, which can mean long waits between items arriving at your table. I assume that they wait until they have several orders for the same item before cooking them. (Be sure to count the number of different items you selected before handing over your order.) Downsides: the popularity of this restaurant can mean long waits for a table. Go before 11am on weekends. Restaurant has two dining sections, so you may end up waiting inside for a table in the rear, windowless section. Service can be haphazard, beyond taking your order and items arriving at your table. (Considering the number of people waiting for a table, it can be frustratingly difficult to get your bill.) Prices have increased significantly over the years, to the point that I actually noticed when ordering yesterday. Most of the common popular items are now $4.68. We ordered 8 items for the two of us, which totaled about $37 including taxes. For a place which leans more "hole in the wall" than opulent Chinese palace, that is getting a little steep. But the quality and freshly prepared to order food wins out.

Reasonable prices for well spiced (but not pointlessly hot) dishes. Dishes were not meagerly portioned as too often found in Indian restaurants. Good friendly service. Pakoras, Butter Chicken, Dhal Mahkni and the plain Naan bread were especially good among the dishes we ordered.

Closing because of new condos being built, incorporating existing building. Given 1 month to vacate my storage locker. No assistance or rebates to offset cost of moving contents, just the name of another local storage facility.

Great Chinese Dumplings in Riverdale. I think this is probably the first dumpling place in the Riverdale Chinatown. Fast polite service. Clean restaurants and washrooms. I dined with an unadventurous friend so I kept to basic familiar menu items when ordering: Soup Filled Dumplings, Boiled Pork and Cabbage Dumplings, Vegetarian Spring Rolls. Very good quality and inexpensive.

"I'm a hustler" - Roy (Owner/Manager) A good friend just related his difficulty in canceling his membership. The manager told him that he could not cancel his membership before one year (illegal in Ontario) and called the police when my friend calmly argued with him. His bank account has been debited on various dates, the manager told him that he can they can debit his account whenever they want. The contract clearly states that membership can be canceled with 10 days notice. This gym exists solely to bilk their clients. The gym will be closing when the site is redeveloped. Stay away.

Huge menu focusing on all types of Chinese noodles, soups and Chinese BBQ meats. Large portions. Customers tend to order an individual dish for themselves, instead of sharing family style. Bustling, brightly lit atmosphere. Recommended.
