Breakfast?

You won't get any mocking from me. La Belle Province on Saint Jacques makes a very good diner style breakfast. My late BF and I used to go there all the time. Good coffee, too, with refills.

Breakfast?

Cosmos.

NDG hotdog

It always was. Food names do not translate well.

Rule #1...always...

Yep. Happened to me more than once, I'm ashamed to say.

"Only in Canada" food items: add to the list

Canned meatballs are available in New Jersey, where I used to live, but in no way compare to Cordon Bleu. I was jonesing for them LOL.

Does your city have an International District/Chinatown?

Guess that rules out Montreal, too. Why did the OP limit his question to the US? Does he/she think only Americans visit this board?

Far-away Chains on your "To Do" List

To switch things around, I would recommend Harvey's for Americans up our way. No other chain in North America does a burger like Harvey's IMO.

It's actually my favourite of all the HH options. My late husband liked it too.

Attention Chefs: Can we all agree that bacon is over?

I agree. Bacon belongs with eggs. Or in a BLT. Period.

Best condiment to throw on a hot dog?

I like cheese.

Women who don't eat much when among peers

Eating minimally is okay during a business lunch. Otherwise, let 'er rip, I say.

I love Tim Hortons because...

New York City, too. There is one in Penn Station. I know because I lived in New Jersey and commuted to NYC.

Imperial v. Metric issue

Yes, I have such a cookbook. "A bowl of rice" is in one recipe. It would be nice to know what size bowl.

What foods have you made and then decided store bought was good enough, thank you, based upon cost, time, and taste?

Since I am on my own, and we were only two when DH was alive, I don't bake anymore. Add baking ingredients up and it gets expensive. I have found most supermarket bakery departments have perfectly acceptable products at reasonable prices.

Long Gone But Not Forgotten! Manhattan Memories

The Automat. I was taken there when I was 10 and for an out-of-town kid, I was duly impressed.

Can only find curly noodles

We have both flat and curly noodles in Montreal. I noticed when I lived in New Jersey that I couldn't find flat noodles either. I suppose it all depends on marketing. You could always try breaking up fettuccine. Or parpadelle if you can find it.

Definition of Shepherd's Pie

In Quebec, where it is practically a national dish, it is ground beef, kernel corn and mashed potato topping. But the original British Isles dish was indeed made with lamb.

Cheap Foods that Become Popular

I posted in another thread some time ago that I remember when supermarkets used to give wings away for soup and stock. Then some genius in Buffalo started serving them as bar food and the rest is history.

Very funny list of food products with unfortunate English name translations

IIRC the original product was called Aids but was changed shortly after the Aids epidemic. I remember seeing the ads in magazines.

Alton Brown is Nasty to Contestants!!!

I know a chef who once worked with Tyler Florence. According to Florence, Brown is an a$$hole.
