Montreal: Reuben’s Deli

by gigi on October 26, 2011

This has been quite the year for me in terms of mini trips. Earlier in the year, Jenkins and I went with my family to a trip out to Eastern Canada. It was my first family trip in a while and it turned out better than I expected. Our first stop was in Montreal. Jenkins […]


Jenkins and I met up with his family one morning for some dim sum at Shun Feng Seafood Restaurant, located in Parker Place mall in Richmond.
