where can I find ginger and black vinegar pig's feet

Ah Fong won't have it for another 2 weeks. Any place south of Steeles will work for me. Thanks.

Cheep and cheerful Weekend Dim Sum

I like the fried glutinous rice at Landmark. $5 for about 2-3 bowls.

Cheep and cheerful Weekend Dim Sum

New Shanghai at 4675 Steeles Ave East. $2.6 for S,M,L if order before 1130AM. I had Shanghai Dim Sum there last Sunday. They have canto dim sum too.
Global Imperial at north east corner of Sheppard East/Glen Watford drive hidden in the back. $2.9 for S,M,L. The place is huge.
Landmark at McNicoll/Victoria Park Ave. $2.3 for S,M,L. Very busy on weekend. Go around 115pm.
These 3 are cheap and cheerful for me. All charge for tea.
If you want upscale and good service, lots of options in Richmond Hill & Markham.

A taste of authentic Hong Kong Nostalgia inside Dynasty Plaza Food Court, Scarborough

Spleen is out of stock today. Tried her braised beef noodles with extra spicy instead. She has killer chilli paste & chilli flakes.

Where to buy skirt steak

I know T & T has flank. It was on sale last couple of days for $3.99. I like the beef at Galleria York Mills/Upjohn much better. Galleria carries hanger. If you need special cut, talk to the butcher behind the counter. I once saw a caucasian pick up 2 large bags of beef from Galleria.

Early Bird Dim Sum

I went around 130pm. Half full.

Early Bird Dim Sum

Global Imperial at Glen Watford Drive. $2.6 on weekdays. $2.9 on weekends. $1 tea charge. No fancy decor. I think they upcycled chairs and tables from previous establishment. No nice food presentation. No gluey sauce for chicken feet. Their dim sum remind me of those in the 80's Hong Kong .

Did you let the dough rise longer than 10 mins?

Chowfind: An authentic tasting 'Instant' Singapore Laksa Noodle La Mien good enough for Chowhounders!

I saw it at T&T Warden today on sale for $4.99. They are out of the Laksa.

Anyone know about chiu-chow cuisine?

Oriental gourmet is closed. I liked their duck leg in orange peel broth with rice.

'Skyview Fusion Chinese' - Sorry folks! Another relatively new kid on the block. This one could be the best 'early-bird' Dim Sum in the GTA?!

I went to Yang's Markham last week on a weekday for early bird. No problem getting a table.

Went to OMG for lunch today. Still busy. But the borscht tasted different. Less depth. Weekend is better because of the premium charge?

'Stone Fortune' - A disappointing 'Hong Kong Cafe' experience.

I tried the ox tongue in onion sauce with rice and borscht today. I like OMG for taste. But thanks for the recommendations.
