Rolling Rock Beer

King Henry VIII on Bloor west of Royal York pours a nice pint.

Henry VIII
3078 Bloor St W, Toronto, ON M8X1C8, CA

Aquila restaurant

I've had their lamb burger lunch. Very good, and the owner / chef seems to take great pride in his prep (going so far as to give me a tour of his backyard smoker.)

ISO Cherry syrup (west side of Toronto)

International Food Depot on Jutland often has the cherry syrup in stock (and cheaper than Starsky). If not, they will order it in for you.


now 55 cents (on Tues and Thurs)

Mad Mexican on Jane. Open Yet?

It seems as though the authenticity of this joint is becoming established pre-opening. Brilliant marketing, if you ask me.

Best places to buy pistachio nuts in the GTA , recommendations please?

I agree about the nuts being great. That whole plaza/ complex is quite interesting. Stopped in a shop with a 'falafel' sign in the window and ended up with a nice, earthy sandwich. Swell cheeze for home as well.

Need recommendations quick - good restaurants in Bloor West Village?

17 Steps down 17 steps between Chapters and the Pizza joint have a melt-in-your-mouth lamb burger and frites. Interesting menu, fine pints of Moretti on tap.

Russian or Ukrainian Restaurant in Toronto (south of the 401)?

It's not baba's, but My Place in Bloor West Village makes pretty good borsht.
