Best Cheese Shop in Philly?

That's great -- because that was my other question -- where to get a good baguette -- not the wimply, fluffy "french" bread type...will have to check out Four World's!

I'll see if Jack can get me my Quebec Wild Woman (la sauvagine)... all cheese lovers in Philly would thank me for that...

Best Cheese Shop in Philly?

Thanks, everybody - for all the ideas. I've seen DiBrunos from the outside, but have not heard of Claudios. I was wondering -- do they sell mostly Italian cheeses or is there a wide selection of different types?

Best Cheese Shop in Philly?

We recently relocated to Philadelphia (centre city) from Canada and are looking for a good cheese shop. I don't mean the grocery store varieties -- although there's nothing wrong with them -- but a large selection of european style cheeses... roqueforts, oozing triple cream bries, characterful aged cheddars, parmesano reggiano, etc... The best we found so far is Downtown Cheese at the Reading Market. Are there others around town that are well regarded with a good variety?

New Korean BBQ place on Bloor - Miga

Went yesterday for an early dinner with my husband -- must agree with the other reviewers -- good, but not exceptional. We found the service good, the place pleasant and clean (the lighting a tiny bit stark...), with ample sized booths able to fit 6 at least... not too many customers when we were there (we arrived very early).

There was a complimentary amuse with 3 korean side dishes on a small divided dish (ours were steamed spinach, corn salad and bean sprouts) and 2 side dishes to share(kimchi and marinated julienned daikon radish). We ordered a tempura starter and 2 BBQ meats. The food portions were adequately sized for my appetite. There were 1/2 litres listed for some wines on the wine list, but when we tried to order one, they are actually not offering it. We had a beer and a glass of wine and the bill came out to around $80 including tax & tip -- I think that is not too bad for a night out.

Two things to note about this place compared with Missisauga location (I've never been -- the waitress told me) -- there is no sushi offerred, and no combo plates for BBQ.
