The newly opened Paris Crepes on Cambridge street seems somewhat decent, although the savoury crepes need a bigger dose of buckwheat. Craving vegetables, I had the vegetarian crepe that was OK, nothing to write home about. I think their dessert crepes might actually be better since the crepes that they make are lightly sweet and would enhance any additional application of sweetness.

Imperial Seafood in Chinatown rates an average. Nothing bad, but nothing exceptionally delicious either. Fairly low prices though (all of this below for 6 folks at $14 per person including tip). Best dish of the evening was a well made fried sole, with good batter, very little trace of grease, very delicate flesh and fine flavour all intact.

A double salt and pepper squid and spareribs was fine too, not greasy either. Squid was nice and crunchy, spareribs maybe a tiny bit too tough. Bamboo pith fungus on mixed vegetables was ordinary, stir fried chinese broccoli was par. Duck with a lacy top of fried taro was quite nice, even though the duck could have been more moist and tender. Scallops with vegetables had a nice complement of ginger, but wasn't enough to wash away their slight fishiness. Also somewhat rubbery, not of the best quality.
