  • Food Post:

    Hi y’all, so I for one love noodles like LOVEE NOODLES. The last time I went to Kinton Ramen which was actually around two years ago when it first opened in Toronto. Not on the exact day, but in the first half a year I believe? When they still had the if you can eat our noodles in 15 minutes it’s free deal?! So for this time my friends and I wanted to go for noodles -specifically ramen. We decided to go to Kinton because we arrived at that location.

    I ordered the Miso Soup noodles which came with soybean paste, bean sprouts, scallions, garlic oil and corn with light pork broth and thick noodles. I also had the pork belly with fat in it so it wouldn’t be as icky to eat glad I made that choice. I decided to add extra noodles ($2) because I love my noodles. :) 

    After eating the food, I was not really satisfied - I was still hungry and my guy friend usually is full after he eats the noodles without adding extra food.  Taste wise it didn’t wow me away. It didn’t taste as good as I thought it would be but the music per say was very loud and noisy. 

    HOW IN THE WORLD IS IT NOISY?! It is noisy in the restaurant because the music is blasting to a very loud volume but on top of the music the employees are all yelling when people come in and out of the restaurant. So if you’re thinking of a quiet place, or a first date do not go to Kinton.

    Their washrooms were downstairs - makes sense for the Downtown tight environment - however into the hall it was so dark it was hard to see. I know some people that are scared to walk down stairs in the fear of falling so the darkness does not help. Easily you could bump into people, the washroom is alright, like how they have amenities in the female washroom such as feminine products, toothpicks etc. Classy, but the loud music in the bathroom was not necessary. In such a small room with the volume they are blasting the music - it is damaging your ear drum.

    As for the tea, if they were to really think business wise - in a more business mindset they would not charge Japanese Green Tea for $2. Next time you might as well bring your own and ask for hot tea (FRUSTRATING!)

    Another negative thing was not able to split the check to individuals I was in a group of 8 and some of us carry credit cards/debit cards and not a lot of cash so that is problematic.

    In conclusion, I won’t be eating at Kinton for another 4-6 years unless I am going with friends and they want to go but I would suggest another place than Kinton. Another thought - didn’t they used to have more variety of ramen? Their selection is so small there used to be cheese and other things.. weird. 

    One thing I like is how they put the tea in the jars it’s creative but not worth $2 if I only drink a cup of tea. 

    I give Kinton 4/10 !

  • Save money, save money how to save money when you’re in college?

    As a college student but more importantly a student pursuing to become a designer. You should know by now it’s mad expensive, other programs people may have to purchase textbooks however they have a limit whereas depending on your program you may have extra costs like printing, additional materials to purchase besides the ones on the  supplies list.

    Are you a tea lover?! But don’t want to spend soooo much money a year to purchase tea? Like Tim Hortons (Canadian fast food restaurant for those whom do not know. Or any other store/restaurant, it’s not cheap on the day of purchase but $1-3 times 4-5 days a week.. the total for one week could be $15 - you could spend that $15 on dinner when you really need to treat yourself for all the hard work you’ve been doing. Or save it up in your savings :P

    Save money?!?! Did you say save money? Yes I did, you could ask Tim Hortons or whatever place you get your tea or a place with HOT WATER. Bring your own mug and it would cost for FREE. Yes I said free, maybe if you don’t bring your mug they would not charge you for the cup fee but there may depending on the sales people. Yeah know? Or if you’re lucky enough. Bring your own tea bag and here’s your tea, cost free or less than a dollar!

    Here’s to my college tip of saving money for now. Adios Amigos, time to get to class.
