Mother's Dumplings - coming to the Danforth (east of Pape)

I was disappointed over the weekend. The dumplings were skimpier and not as tasty as at Dumpling House on Gerrard and the cold mixed salad was just okay. It was my second time there and service was much improved over the first time last week. Still I likely won't go back.

"The Wren" on Danforth -- anyone heard about what it's going to be?

I stopped going after getting a few short pints. I didn't mention it but should have. I'll give them another chance.

Okonomiyaki

The people at Guu on Bloor actually recommended Teppan Kenta on Wellesley for okonomiyaki. I haven't been yet.

The Dumpling House on Gerrard

I'm there fairly regularly but usually mid-day on weekends. No change of ownership that I know of but maybe a change of evening chef?

Dim Sum in Montreal - Where to go for authentic, fresh Dim Sum?

I haven't been for a few months now but 10:30 was the time I tried to aim for. Any later and I found it just wasn't as good.

ISO KC Masterpiece Private Stock

I believe Costco in Etobicoke either has it or had it in the last month or so.

Looks like Dunn's on King is closed for good now. It's only been open sporadically lately but a notice of termination showed up on the door a few days ago.

down-to-earth pubs with decent grub

I've been twice in the last few weeks to have just that: grilled cheese, buffalo chips and a beer. The first time was great, the sandwich was just right and the chips not too greasy. The second time was an unappetizing mess to the point I'm not sure I'd eat there again. Their beer was in good condition both times though.

Belgians at SAQ

I tried three SAQ today: the two near JT market, with little in the way of Belgians, and the one at Atwater Market which had all of the ones in the catalogue. I happily stocked my cellar with 2 Rocheforts, Chimay Blue, Maredsous and Orvals, consolation prizes for missing out on the absurd Westvleteren 12 scramble at the LCBO last week. Thanks everyone for the suggestions.

Belgians at SAQ

Thanks for the reply. In Ontario the LCBO issues a quarterly list with special items that will become available in the next three months. Is there anything like that in Quebec for beer or is it always just the regular list?
