Dragon Centre Mall Midland Sheppard Area Take Out

Jar....thanks for the detailed info on Noodle Delight...might just pop in one of these days...

Since you mentioned Metro Square,I'm assuming you ordered from Lucky Curry house (the store on your extreme right if you're facing the food court)....was there on Monday,I always get the Beef Brisket Curry and Chicken Curry (I'm assuming they same style as you mentioned for Noodle Delight)...I think ownership has changed,the counter girl upfront was different and I saw a lady at the kitchen,been going there for over 10 years and this was the first time I was seing different set of faces..though I did not clarify with them.both the curries were good but felt something was missing....maybe more physcological than anything....
The taiwanese store on the extreme left is pretty decent...The BBQ store and New Fountain are very average,nothing to write home about....and the other store's keep frequenly changing hands,so you get the idea..

Dragon Centre Mall Midland Sheppard Area Take Out

Jar...since you mentioned Noodle Delight...what are the good dishes to order there...have passed that place like a gazillion times and thought about doing a takeout on numerous occasions but ended up going somewhere else...

BEST PLACE FOR CHICKEN OR LAMB BIRYANI IN OR AROUND TORONTO?

Have tried their Biryani a couple of times...very average.....On the other hand to be fair their Bihari Kebab is awesome though the quantity to price ratio is extremely low....

Current favourite for Biryani is Silver Spoon (the Warden and Ellesmere one)

I think you are referring to Witteveen Meats...I buy from them all the time but to be honest have never bought a filet mignon from them....but I've always had a great expereince with their other cuts of meat....

Thai Coffee/Tea Leaves in Toronto? (Downtown preferred)

Hi dishul...I should have mentioned that I preferred picking it up from a store...
I'm aware that its available on amazon and ebay...its available online for around $11(400 g pack )....but once you pay shipping and handling the cost escalates....

Thai Coffee/Tea Leaves in Toronto? (Downtown preferred)

woodpieces27...thanks for bringing up this topic....I have been looking for this brand of tea...can't seem to find it in local asian grocery stores...
Most Thai iced tea vendors in Bangkok use a brand of tea that comes in a red and white bag known as Cha Dra Muer or it’s just known as Number One Brand...

Anyone spotted this

ISO Flavored Syrup for Coffee (GTA)

Where can I find them?...I swear I have seen them at my local Metro and possibly at Winners....I think it was the Torani Brand....but with Winners you know its a hit and miss....but I can't seem to locate them....Any idea where I can find them in the GTA?

Thanks in advance...

Burger Week 2014 - May 28 to 31st - $5 burgers at various restaurants

They are pretty awesome and for $5 its a steal....they are offering this on Burger week

"The Misbred Village Bahahastard: Two patties of aged beef, Ontario lamb, and saganaki cheese ground together and topped with red onion, Greek olive oil, and sautéed peppers"

Burger Week 2014 - May 28 to 31st - $5 burgers at various restaurants

So as per description it will be a raw patty during burger Week which you can buy at the store

"Raw in-store patty: Bison chorizo"

And on Burger Day slider: Bison chorizo burger with smoked gouda, apple slaw, and spicy chicharróns.

Whut youse alls thunk? Zagat article on Mississauga

I totally agree about Guru Lukshmi...the moment I saw the article headline I was 200% sure it would be on the list..more than disappointed it wasn't..Sarvana Bhavan does not even come close....We travel all the way from scarborough because we think Guru Lukshmi is the best in the GTA....

The only other place on the list I have tried is Lion City.....average at best..went because the Hainanese Chicken Rice was highly recommended...it was OK Gourmet Malaysia or for that matter Phoenix do a better one....if you are from Markham/Rich Hill/Scarborough its not worth the drive....

Where can I buy Kimchi in Toronto?

Galleria is my go to as well...I normally try to finish it within 4-5 days of buying it...don't like it when it starts turning sour....PAT is good as well ...IMO Galleria is slightly better...

Owl of Minerva sells kimchee as well...

Alphonso and kesar mangos at Freshco

I went on Thurday to the Freshco @ Parliament and Dundas...they were pretty much done...they only had 7-8 boxes of Kesar's..I really wanted the Alphonsoes but was in no mood to travel to another Freshco/Price Chopper..so picked up one box....slim pickings as most boxes were open and people had already done mix and match....but still managed to get a box with six decent Kesar's....had a couple of them...delicious and they really make the room smell so much better whn you walk in....

Mannarich Beef/Beef Tendon Balls-Not Available

Its been a while since I saw it on grocery shelfs. Its the only brand that I love,a bit more expensive but just can't switch to the other brands.Just doesn't have the same taste and texture like Mannarich.I even wrote to the company but its been a while and I have not heard back..I have pretty much checked all grocery stores...anyone has any idea what happened or recommend a similar tasting brand?

Thanks

corn tortillas

At the Dufferin Mall NF...they were at the same spot where it used be previously...which in this case is also the beginning of the cold cuts etc cooler...and normally I just go over to the LaTortilleria just opposite the mall for tortillas...

Chowfind: An authentic tasting 'Instant' Singapore Laksa Noodle La Mien good enough for Chowhounders!

Yippy...I did see a few other Prima products @Warden/Steeles T&T ...I absolutely remember seeing the Hainanese Chicken Rice and Singapore Chilli Crab but can't remember what else was there...will check it on my next visit....

Neighbourguy...what you say makes sense.....if you are serving two or more persons....
This Prima Noodles is more for if you are alone and need a quick fix....

I normally use Tean's Gourmet Curry Laksa which is pretty decent....this paste is easily available at most stores...
