White Brick Kitchen (Bloor and Euclid), Anyone been?

Update on this:

Have walked by a few times, looks like they are much busier now. Generally seeing them 50% full on weekdays (instead of 0%) and they are always full for brunch on the weekends now.

Awesome to see!

Hoof Raw Bar

Went a week or two ago just for a couple snacks.. had oysters, cured platter and their bread.

Drinks were mediocre, food was pretty good and price was relatively high. Probably worth going at least once as its a pretty cool atmosphere/vibe, but once is enough for me.

Sunday Brunch in Toronto

Another +1 for this

Still never understand why there isn't a line around the block for this place!

Fried chicken is amazing, crispy but not too greasy. Also enjoyed their breakfast and BLT.

Lee Chen Diner in Yorkville

Anyone been here?

Always thought it was westernized Chinese food, but recently heard good things about it. Still skeptical so I thought I would ask some fellow Chowhounds what they thought before spending any money.

It's nearby so if its good that'd be amazing.

NYC Style Halal Truck Food in Toronto?

Hi All

Just got back from a trip to NYC a few weeks ago and now I'm craving their street vendor halal food with the white/red sauce.

Is it possible to find this anywhere in downtown Toronto? (was never been a big eater of halal food/shawarma etc before I left)

Thanks!

Moderately priced restaurant in Yorkville/Bloor/Yonge area?

Would take a look at WOW Sushi on Charles just east of Bay

White Brick Kitchen (Bloor and Euclid), Anyone been?

Has it been busy when anyone has gone? Last time I was there we were the only ones in the restaurant.. hoping they are normally busier, don't want to see them close down!

Summerlicious apparently blown off by Chowhounders...??

Would agree with this, always find service/food to be below the restaurant's non-summerlicious standards

Cool Birthday Dinner Suggestion?

Hi All

Another question asking where to go for dinner

Looking for somewhere for around 6-8, one person is paying so hopefully can keep it at around 30-40pp + wine

Preferably somewhere cool with some unique feature (was thinking something like Enoteca Sociale or along those lines), and preferably somewhere I haven't before (never really venture out of downtown core/midtown area).

Will try to guide you if you need more info to make a suggestion!

Thanks!!

Good Ramen Downtown

Did a quick search and didn't see any recent threads regarding this.

Anyone have recommendations for good ramen downtown?

Have tried Kenzo and Guu's ramen but looking for something new to try.

Thanks!

Students looking for a place with drinks and food! (Cheap would be great!)

I'm a big fan of Crown and Dragon at Yonge and Bloor or Wvrst at King and Bathurst

But that is just my preference, are you looking for somewhere casual like a pub for beers and pub food or somewhere more where you can sit down, and have wine and cocktails

Yorkville Espresso Bar - new spot on Yorkville Avenue

Where to buy a "submarine" bun

Yeah I don't know how I missed them before, never saw them in the loose bun section, but went to Sobey's and found a pack of three for 1.99, they served their purpose.

Where to buy a "submarine" bun

Hi All

Have a craving for some sort of homemade cheesesteak sandwich and was wondering where I would be able to buy a "submarine" bun.

I'm looking for a softer bun like something you would find at a sub store. All I've been able to find at the grocery store is more like a baguette and are very dense (not what I'm looking for).

@ Yonge and Bloor so something close or along the subway line would be great!

Thanks!!

Molecular Gastronomy in GTA

Agree with Colborne Lane, had a good meal there - nothing mindblowing but some decent MG

The Meat Dept - Danforth Avenue

Saturday Brunch with Reservations

Hi All,

Looking for a recommendation for this Saturday for a brunch place that will take reservations. Anywhere within a 15 minute drive from my place near Yonge and Bloor would be nice.

Saw another similar thread but was from two years ago I believe and there was limited help provided.

Hope you can help!

Thanks

Best Frozen Croissants

Tried the frozen ones from Williams Sonoma in the States.. don't think the ones here sell any frozen goods.

Anything similar for sale in Toronto?

Thanks!

Chinatown Restaurant Recommendations (Toronto)

I would second Pearl or Crown Princess, not exactly in Chinatown but they both have that special little bit of show and are ethnic but also very English friendly.

Best Takeout Pizza in Yorkville Area?

Hey All,

Looking for some good takeout pizza in the area (Bay and Bloor). I've tried Mamma's Pizza and Pizzaiolo, but am looking for something better - or am I out of luck?

Cheers

Montreal to Toronto--Where to stop?

As previously mentioned Kingston has surprisingly good Cambodian food that I have yet to find a match for in Toronto. Look at Pat's or Royal Angkor for my two favorites when I stop in Kingston.

French Panini Bread

Hello all,

Although I do know that people will say "panini = sandwich" I just wanted to clarify first and am talking specifically about the bread they use on the street side shops everywhere in France (at least from what I recall when I was in Toulouse/Normandy area).

I was looking to remake them at home and all I remember that they were narrow pieces of bread that seemed pale but then crisped up beautifully in the panini press.

Sorry if there's an obvious answer.
