Best tartare in the city?

The Black Hoof always has great tartares. The beef heart tartare currently on the menu is beefier than the beefiest beef.

Best Seafood Restaurant in Toronto

Agree with above posters re Rodney's and Joso's. Another favourite dish is the gindara (miso-glazed black cod) from Guu. Both locations have it on the menu.

San Pellegrino Aranciata

Do you have a recipe for a syrup that approximates the aranciata or limonata flavours? If so, please share as it would be fun to try to make at home.

new Hoof items?

I second the tacos. Ethereal. Better than any I had in Mexico city, and that's saying a whole lot! Apparently the secret is bone marrow cooked along with the pork bits.

Italian Sourdough Starter

If you're prepared to brave trying to make your own, Daniel Leader has instructions for making Italian-style starter ("biga naturale") in his book Local Breads. The book is available from Toronto public library.

Restaurants I love, you hate

I get that you don't like offal, but why call it pretentious? For those of use who do like it, it's just plain good food.

Walden Farms?

Just out of curiosity, what is in these things? How can a fruit spread be calorie free? Does it actually contain fruit? I'm just asking because their website doesn't contain ingredient lists.

Help! Repatriated Torontonian baffled by the Chinese food!

I had a very good Chinese-Canadian experience at a restaurant in London, ON that used to be a Burger King. Can anyone help? If I recall from University days, London has several very decent Chinese-Canadian selections.

Cooking dried kidney beans-splitting

Please be careful cooking kidney beans in a crockpot! They contain a toxin that is denatured by heat, but some crockpots don't reach a high enough temperature. You may have to boil them gently first, and then put them the crockpot.

Hooked Seafood - New fishmonger on Queen

I love how they have whole fish and cut them very carefully to order. It keep the fish fresh, allows customized sizing and looks really cool in the display case! I got excellent BC sablefish last weekend.

I'm looking for this too. I couldn't find it at Noah's and the Big Carrot is a bit out of the way for me (I'm located in the Annex). Has anyone seen it anywhere else?
