Best tasting crab dish in 2013.

I remember eating steamed crab with chicken fat and fa dew at 'Ho Choi Seafood restaurant' in Sheung Wan and really loving it. Thought I'd never find a restaurant in Toronto serving it. Thank you for the recommendation.

One question though, you brought your own fa dew, but will they still prepare it with fa dew if I don't bring anything? Is this on the menu?

Best brand of fish balls/squid balls available in the supermarket?

I've been looking for the best fish balls and squid balls available. My favourite squid balls came from a taiwanese supermarket 'Kuo hua', but I believe their quality has gone downhill. Their squid balls used to taste like the ones I would find at the Phoenix Restaurant, which I enjoyed. Nowadays, I settle on the 'Tung Gong' (East River) brand, which I find at T&T. Can anyone recommend some good brands?

Ming Lou Chinese restaurant closed?

Hello, does anybody know what has happened to this restaurant? This restaurant used to be at the finch and Leslie plaza but I went there a couple days ago to find that it has been replaced by an ayce sushi joint. I am hoping that it has just moved locations and not closed down. If anyone has any idea what has happened to it, please let me know.

Thanks

Hong Kong - staying for a month

Hello chowhounders, so I will be staying for a month in HK and was wondering what I should try. This is not my first time to HK, I've lived here as a kid for ~10 yrs, but living in HK as a family back then, we never really sought out good food in particular. Also, I am from Toronto, and my friends who have been back more often tell me the cantonese food/dimsum isn't that bad in Toronto, so I need some help from Chowhounders to tell me what I am missing out on! (maybe some excellent cantonese dinner/roast goods/dimsum?)

I've done some research and so far I've gone to/am planning to go to:

Mak's for wonton noodles
Random small congee places/fishball noodles
Lin Heung Kui (for oldschool dimsum)
Street food in jordan
Joy Hing for some char siu
One seafood meal at Sai Kung (don't know any specific restos)
High tea at peninsula
Butao ramen
Ruamjai Thai resto

Someone recommended me this chiu chow place in Sheung Wan called Sheung Hing but I wasn't very impressed (thought it wasn't very good and overpriced for what it is)

I am open to all cuisines (not just cantonese)

Thank you!

Riiter Sport Yogurt (not mini) in Toronto?

Does anyone know where I can find Ritter Sport Yogurt in Toronto? I've seen the mini variety pack and full-sized packs for other flavours but I've never been able to find the full-sized yogurt flavoured one.

Recs in Richmond Hill/Markham/Scarborough

Do you guys know any good, budget-friendly ($15-25 ish) restaurants for dinner?
Doesn't matter what type of cuisine, cozy atmosphere for chatting would be good.

Also, any cafes with decent baked goods around this area?
