Sika Deer in Scarborough - my new Shanghainese fav in GTA

Pan fried pork buns are good if you are not after crunchy crispy fried bun bottoms.

Asian Legend Don Mills?

For the same price range, Sika deer is quite decent at Midland/Finch. 3 private rooms. Some of Yelp reviews were based on previous ownerships. Charles posted a review a couple of days.

The Costco Thread - Ontario - 2014 - July to September

I saw lots of people buy the Kirkland toilet paper and decided to try it. Not impressed at all. I am staying with Charmin ultra strong.

The XLB is good if you like Markham Ding Tai Fung XLB. Spicy stir fry yellow eel is very good.

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.

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

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 .
