They serve all kinds of amazing Asian dishes but their specialties are their giant udon noodle bowls, their Donburi and their classic Asian desserts like mochi, green tea ice cream, and green tea tiramisu!
Women will lead five of Quebec's eight largest cities following the 2021 municipal elections.
The biggest headline of the night may have been Valérie Plante's triumph over old foe Denis Coderre in Montreal, but across the province, the faces of municipal politics have become more gender-balanced.
According to the latest counts and projections, France Bélisle (Gatineau), Catherine Fournier (Longueuil), Évelyne Beaudin (Sherbrooke) and Julie Dufour (Saguenay) are all also on their way to their respective (and figurative) city hall corner offices.
In Quebec City, it seemed for a while like Marie-Josée Savard would join them. Multiple outlets had even called the election for her until the vote count for her opponent surged into the evening. Bruno Marchand ultimately claimed victory.
Mayor Plante commented on the historic nature of her second mandate in her victory speech Sunday night.
"Four years ago, Montrealers elected the first woman mayor in the history of the City of Montreal," she said.
"Tonight, they told us again, 'yes, this mayor, we're going to continue to work with her, we trust her!'"
This year, for the first time, Montrealers will have two women leading the city, as Projet Montréal's Dominique Ollivier is set to take over as president of the Executive Committee.
The government is in the process of filling a Service Canada job bank and it's advertising salaries of between $61,152 and $65,887.
On an online recruitment page, the Employment and Social Development Canada (ESDC) office says it needs to fill 45 benefits officer and program officer positions in Quebec and encourages qualified individuals to apply.
The only education requirement is a high school diploma.
While benefits officers review and process employment insurance applications, the government describes a wide range of duties for program officers, including coordination with local stakeholders regarding services from the ESDC.
Service Canada says it has EI processing centres and "program branches" in Montreal, Laval, Boucherville, Drummondville, Thetford Mines, Shawinigan, Quebec City and Saguenay, but that it may assign alternative workplaces to applicants who don't live in these areas.
In addition to a high school diploma, Service Canada is looking for applicants who have experience totalling six months "in delivering services or programs to the general public" or "interpreting and applying legislation or policies."
The language requirement is either French-only or French and English, depending on the position, according to the recruitment page.
Complete details about the positions available and the application process are online.
Located downtown near Concordia and McGill, Hang Time is the perfect place to hang with friends, reminisce about the old days and enjoy some good old-fashioned 'za. Meanwhile, the decor will transport you straight into your favourite '90s TV show so you feel like you're meeting up with the gang from Saved by the Bell (or Boy Meets World or Beverly Hills 90210 or Fresh Prince of Bel-Air) for a slice and a shake after class.
"The '90s vibe was a product of us coming up with the name," said Jordan Biberkraut, self-proclaimed "Pizza Guy" and Hang Time owner. "We grew up watching Saved by the Bell, Hang Time and all the '90s stuff, which — if you grew in that era — is all the rage now. [It] just felt right with all the colours. You have no choice but to be happy here!"
Biberkraut told MTL Blog he had been making pizzas at home during lockdown after falling into a "black hole" of YouTube videos. He said he started giving them out to friends, then selling them (100 pizzas per week at a point!), which led to his now partner tasting one of his deep-dish creations.
"People fall in love with the floors, the bright colours, the names of the pizzas and the old shows playing in the background," he told MTL Blog. "Not to mention, people seem to be enjoying the pizzas too!"
As for what's popular, the Pizza Guy says that people are really loving the classics — like, for instance, the "Seinfeld's Classic NY Pepperoni Pizza." He said people are also loving "The Fresh Prince of Spicy Pineapple," which has pineapple, hot peppers and jalapeño.
To the surprise of many, Quebec City also made the Top 10 — and it ranked higher than Montreal, with Quebec City at #4 and Montreal at #6.
This ranking looked at the cost of living, internet speeds, the percentage of young people, levels of safety, and more.
Our province may have been blessed enough to score two top spots in this ranking, but we still didn't make it to #1, which was Tokyo, Japan.
If ever you were thinking of going to study abroad, you may want to put Tokyo high on your list, considering it "ranks well in nearly all categories helping it to come out on top of the study. It has a good amount of high-ranking unis, great food options, and offers cheap tech. It has high levels of free speech and is above average for safety and high-ranking institutions."
