Copacabana on Eglinton and Mt Pleasant

I wouldn't starve myself per se.....but whenever i know I'll be eating there,I go on a meat free diet for a couple of days before that.....its a fun place though if you're going in the evening the music with the live band can get really loud...
The salad bar is not really much to write home about....

Estrella Taqueria: New Taco Place Opening in North York

True that.....Tongue and Tripe Taco's,one of the first things that I always have when I'm in LA....

and hopefully if one ever opens ,its a no frills place and not one of those fancy shmancy joints....

Touhenboku Ramen

limitedtimeoffer..Santouka=McD's of Ramen???....really????...

I would have slightly agreed if you had mentioned Ajisen...but calling Santouka boring is stretching it a bit too far.....

Lay's Do us a Flavour - any good?

They even have Burgers Priest on that list...so yeah it's a very credible list...

Scarborough Gems

+1 hands down the best doubles....I might even be tempted to say the best doubles in the GTA...

Birchmount & Sheppard

Orchid Garden Deli in the Agincourt Mall....it's like a diner....the prime rib is a must try....

Mystik...an indian takeout on the Birchmount and Sheppars plaza is decent....closed on Mondays....they have specials everyday....worth a look...

New Five Guys Burgers Location coming soon!

CapnChaos..agree with you there...tried it twice....underwhelmed each time.....and I went with the mindset really wanting to like it....I guess with the price point and expectations,I was hoping for something better.....I would call it a good burger if it was cheaper....

Your favourite grocery store in GTA (chain or otherwise?)

Herne,if you mean the hot food section .....the hot food section has canadian Chinese stuff like chicken balls and wings etc.....

Your favourite grocery store in GTA (chain or otherwise?)

Love Al......they pretty much have everything you can think of...as already mentioned...middle eastern,east and West Indian etc...they even have a Indian and Middle eastern hot food counter besides the Asian hot food and BBQ...though food is nothing to write home about...

2013 Alphonso Mangos

Picked up a couple from Queen Street and Gladstone one...have to scan through atleast 10-15 case before I found acceptable quality ones...already had a couple as soon as I got home....they are really good ....makes you realize why you paid so much for it....

Best Pho in T.O.

I'm still a huge fan of Pho Pasteur....never got a bad bowl of pho there and never stingy with the garnishes ,they seem to be the only place that still serves the saw herb....

Though I always go in the afternoon ...though that should not affect the flavour of the broth ...no matter what time you go....and service has never been an issue....

Udder(s)

I asume they are part of the "mystery meat" ingredients....

I have had cow's udders barbecued and curried in India....as well as in Tacos in LA....

Unfortunately never seen them in the GTA

ISO Crawfish and Blue Crabs

James Cristinian is right.....once its frozen....the head loses it umami factor..for me its all about the the head juice....and frozen makes it taste nasty....the tail will still be fine...just like shrimp

Unfortunately I have to depend on my annual trip to California to enjoy these mudbugs...

Nathan's Hot Dogs in T.O?

Thanks for the heads up.

Lets hope Price Chopper has some this year,I rememeber they had like 6 for $9 last year.But it has to be the Indian/Pakistani stores where we will find them for sure in the coming weeks.

Also to avoid long drawn discussions,there is a difference between Alphonso and "Ataulfo".
Asian grocery stores do not carry Alphonsoes.So what ever you see there is Ataulfo

Chinese near Spadina and Dundas for the uninitiated

LOl Kagemusha...I think you are confused....I go to HOG all the time....they don't have booths....as Justsayn pointed out....just a bunch of round and square tables...I know the layout like the back of my hands....they have 3 rows....two rows comprises of round tables and one row of square tables...

Chinese near Spadina and Dundas for the uninitiated

+1 for House of Gourmet...very consistent... Oh I just read OP's post again....this place is not quiet though and even an ant might have trouble squeezing through between tables...

Sinhalese food in Toronto?

You’re absolutely right….It’s a very limited menu….this is a home catering style of a business….

OP was asking for Sinhalese and I know for sure this is Sinhalese run…..

Sinhalese food in Toronto?

I know he does downtown and scarborough area....and to be honest whenever I want anything I ask my friend to order and I pick it up from my friend...Best thing would be to call him...also he does not have it showing on the the menu but he does a very stellar pork curry....which is what I order even if it is not on the menu....Now you got me craving for it :-)

Sinhalese food in Toronto?

Just a heads up though....You have to call on Friday to order and then he delivers on Sunday....Thats the only day he delivers....
