Manmaru Udon and MORE!

The name Manmaru Udon may have led many to believe that the place is an udon house.  I was one of those who actually had that notion.  Until recently, that is.  Besides their signature udons, Manmaru’s menu lists an extensive range of Japanese favourites.  In fact, the choices are quite mind-boggling.

Are you an aspiring musician and/or singer and looking for a platform to showcase your talent?  I know how frustrating it is for talented musicians who are new on the scene and struggling to get an audience to experience their talents.  For “untested” musicians, the market is rather ruthless – nobody is really interested to […]
