Yes thanks Nevy, love reading about your finds!
I was at the Downsview location this morning and they had copies of Jerusalem and Ottolenghi cookbooks.

Best Doughnuts in Toronto: 2013

Tried Amadeus sufganiyot, pistachio version. Unfortunately they didn't have the chocolate. It was good! Thanks for the tip!

Sunday Brunch Buffets

Hi Nevy, just curious where you ended up going. I am debating going to TOCA for Christmas Day brunch and wondering if it's worth the price. Thanks!

Thanks for the review Nevy! Ooh they have chocolate covered cherries? Have to check them out.
Does anyone know if they have the dried tart cherries yet? Not the royal harvest brand though!

By Toronto standard, Great authentic Macau/Portuguese food inside 'New Kennedy Mall' food court, Hwy #7 and Kennedy.

Was in the area and remembered this post so picked up some take out from there. Really enjoyed the Portuguese chicken and sawdust pudding cake.
Will def return to try out their other items.
Thanks for the recommendation!

Hi, does anyone know where I can find coconut chips in Toronto?

Like this: http://www.nuts.com/driedfruit/coconu...

I've only seen toasted and sweetened ones.

TIA!

Updated list of places - Portugues custard tarts

Yes, http://www.rbakery.ca/#!
I found their tarts less sweet so not sure if that's what you are looking for.

Someone brought some from R Bakery to a get together and I found them better than the ones I tried in the city.

Hey Meatball Leslieville

I prefer the pasta at the college location but the chicken meatballs at this location is much tastier. I do find their regular meatballs a bit dry so always ask for chicken instead.

Black Raspberries - does any where sell them?

They have frozen ones at Whole Foods.

The last time I saw fresh black raspberries was at the farmers market over the summer.

Strawberry Picking Toronto

Hi BlueBike...yes, the berries we picked were sweet. They have two varieties though, we were told one is more tart. Last weekend was the first weekend so we chose to pick the sweeter variety. There was still lots of unripe berries last weekend but I would call first before going next week.
I was at The Stop's Green Barn Farmers market on Saturday, many vendors had organic strawberries there. Picked up a quart for my friend who said they were very sweet. That's another option if you don't want to drive out to PYO.

Strawberry Picking Toronto

I was at Organics Family farm last weekend for PYO strawberries. They're certifed organic. They're a small farm but I prefer them to Whittamores.
