Food Scene
Dine In - Vietnamese Food - Great for pho and fresh rolls. We've tried quite a few pho places and this is one of the best and happens to be super close by. Everything tastes really fresh and it's cheap! Tip: Only eat in the restaurant, do not recommend take out. We ordered take out once and it was terrible!

Take out - Caribbean Food - Craving some juicy jerk chicken or fall off the bone ox tail? We accidentally found this place one day and now it's the 'go-to' when we crave Caribbean food. They can make it spicy or leave as is. Generous portion sizes and trust us, good Caribbean food is so difficult to find and we have this place literally down the street!

Dine In or Take-out - Thai Food - This is inside the foodcourt but if you want authentic Thai, this is the place for something really delicious! The lady there is super friendly and sweet and if you're unsure what to order she is great at making recommendations to you. We recommend the Steamed Fish in Banana Leaf with the Thai Iced Tea. Tip: Order ahead it because it takes 20 minutes to make! http://www.thai5cafe.com/news/

Dine-in - Dim Sum - This place is awesome for 'next level' dim sum. It has the classics but they are done so much better. Be prepared for a line up, be patient looking for a parking spot because this place is always packed and you will have to wait to get a seat but it is worth it. Tip: They have an early bird special Monday - Friday (not including holidays) : dishes marked S, M, and L are all one price $3.00 up until 11am, then it goes to regular pricing.

Dine in - Japanese Ramen - This place is super busy and awesome if you like ramen. Service isn't the greatest because they are often overwhelmed but this is one of our favourites for Ramen - hot, steamy and chewy noodles. It's a little bit hidden in this plaza

Dine in - think marinated meat with a ton of sides to create your very own delicious bit. This is authentic Korean and be prepared as they do not speak very good English. They have a patio open in the summer and you can grill your own meats. If you look foreign, they will probably cook it for you:)

Take-out - Hong Kong style milk tea with tapioca, grass jelly or whatever you like. This is a franchised tea shop that is well-known for their roasted milk tea. It's cold, creamy and you can adjust sweetness and ice level to suit your pallet. It's super close by in the mall and we LOVE this place. It's the only place we will buy roasted milk tea. Tip: If this is your first time there, the roasted milk tea is a must, don't get distracted by the other things on the menu.

Chinese buns =P These baked goods are always made fresh so if you're an early bird the buns are extra soft and still warm right out of the oven. Think - warm, soft, sweet, savory, sweet n' savory, baked buns. Tip: known for their egg tarts, these are only available just after 9am. Get there early because there's a line up.

Dine-in - If you love a Korean pork bone soup, this place is consistently good. It's a franchised operation run by Koreans so it's authentic and you can request for this to be spicy to keep your pallet happy.

Sightseeing
Canada's largest telescope with a beautiful view! Built on the dreams of Professor Clarence Chant, David Dunlap, and eventually his widow Jessie Dunlap, The David Dunlap Observatory (DDO) stood for forward motion, Canadian contributions to science, and trailblazing research. At the time of its inception, the DDO boasted the world’s second largest telescope, and as you might expect, it would go on to become a ground-breaking location for astronomical exploration. Evidence that Cygnus X-1 might be a black hole, starring in an Oscar nominated film, inspiring Stanley Kubrick, and launching several stellar careers, the DDO is and always has been a centre for success in Canada.

A bit further than Hillcrest Mall but there are much better stores. If you have a car, we'd recommend shopping at this mall instead of Hillcrest.
