Where can I find Tiger Tail ice cream?

St. Clair Ice Cream east of Dawes and Danforth (if you hit Shoppers World, you've gone too far) has it I believe. I also believe that they accept cash only.

Toronto's worst dives

No love here for Noah's Ark at Dawes and Danforth? That place was as skeezy as they come at the end of its life.

Best Scones in Toronto

Andrea's Gerrard St. Bakery makes a mean cheddar and chive scone. They're usually fresh out of the oven at about 8:30am....so delicious when warm!

2014 Restaurant and Food Store OPENINGS!!

I tried to have breakfast here this morning and the server was too busy with their painstaking latte craft to acknowledge me at the bar. Five minutes later and I couldn't be bothered waiting any longer and walked out.

The room is weird. It looks like a bar where I'd contribute to furthering my cirrhosis, not eat brunch.

Authentic southern BBQ spots in TO?

Seconding the love for Hogtown. Go with friends. Get a selection of meats on a platter and eat until the cows come home.

East End private room for casual birthday

I've been hearing rumblings that they've got issues with inventory and cash flow.

"The Wren" on Danforth -- anyone heard about what it's going to be?

Their brunch polenta is my kryptonite.

King's Belly - O'Connor and Donlands

As much as she'd like you to believe, Dora is not the owner.

King's Belly - O'Connor and Donlands

I went in last Sunday night as most of the area was in darkness. Service was a bit slow at first, but the staff were catering to the masses who were cold, tired and hungry.

$5 Steamwhistles were clean and crisp. My wings were enormous and made like I like them (hot & honey garlic) and they were as large as those cooked across the street at the Wally.

I will go back again, as to avoid the neighborhood's desolate characters who frequent The Belly's neighbours, when I feel like having a quick pint of predictable.

Keep your expectations low and you'll be pleasantly surprised.

From what I recall being told, the patriarch of the family is ill and the restaurant is closed for the time being.

Where to find yummy Ontario strawberries

I found some this morning at the Sobey's at Yonge & St. Clair. I imagine they're available chain wide.

Bars at Woodbine & Danforth?

I made the mistake of ordering wings here & had the worst indigestion and foul smelling belches all night. My Smithwicks was fine though...

Where oh where to get canned or packaged poutine sauce (e.g. St. Hubert) in east end Toronto

I've seen it at the Sobey's at Yonge and St. Clair as well.

Roti Cuisine of India

Gandhi tends to be inconsistent with their spicing and more than once I've received a meltdown of a meal after asking for my heat to be medium. Roti Cuisine of India is far less contemptuous with spices and they'll tell you if something is at a heat level that might ruin your meal.

RCoI also gets points for being open on weekends and evenings. From what I recall, Gandhi is open during the week only.

Latest Charlie Burger

They're not douche-y at all. If anything, they're attentded by people who are excited about food and the opportunity to do something different for dinner. It's not about being seen or being part of a scene.

Salis Noodis - Yonge/St. Clair

I went shortly after they opened and I wasn't really impressed with the food. I ordered the Char Siu noodle salad and ended up getting about $3 worth of ingredients for $9.

The site's photos look good though...perhaps they've improved since then...

Sushi - Danforth & Logan area

I'm kind of embarrassed to admit this but I ate at Casa Sushi the other day. A friend needed a tempura fix and I went along for some Dynamite Rolls. Her fry was greasy and disgusting. My rolls were just 'ok'. Not too much rice a la New Gen, but there was nothing special about them... You definitely get what you pay for.

2012 Food and Restaurant CHANGES and CLOSINGS

It appears that my local hole-in-the wall Chinese takeout, Donlands Garden has closed. According to other shop keepers in the area, the business was sold recently but nobody knows what's going in next. Has anyone got any other info?

2012 Food and Restaurant CHANGES and CLOSINGS

The sign in their window said three weeks ago that they'd be closed for a week... Let's hope they reopen soon. I love what they do.

woodlot walk in

I wouldn't count on getting a seat by walking in. You might want to consider calling and asking them to put your name on the list to be notified of any reservation cancellations instead.

Auld Spot on Danforth

I met a friend here for dinner last week and we ended up moving elsewhere because their beer lines were so dirty.

The fish and chip place isn't bad. Certainly not fine dining but they're friendly and the grub's good.

2012 Food and Restaurant CHANGES and CLOSINGS

While I said 'moving' I should have said 'coming', I guess. Opening date is March 15th if I'm not mistaken.

I hope they do well. That strip is home to some strange businesses (the butcher for one) and I'm looking forward to seeing them in the 'hood.
