Sourcing organic dried unsweetened cherries

I was just at Qi yesterday buying dried cherries. I just don't know whether they are organic or not, or if they have added sugar.

Best masala chai tea bags in Toronto?

I find the Stash Double Spice Chai to be bitter. But if you are looking for it in the city you can buy it in Kensington at the organic shops or at strictly bulk on bloor at ossington.

Pho Phuong - Vietnamese Fine Dining

The noodles aren't suppose to be chewy, I'm guessing you mean al dente. For the best pho they should actually be using fresh noodles, which are definitely not 'chewy'.

How does this place compare to Golden Turtle?

Tutti Matti still open?

Just tried the website and it is no longer... I know it used to be there.

Any word on the status of this restaurant? I was hoping to try it tonight.

If it is still open, do I need a reservation for two people for an early dinner?

Thanks

Thai for 20?

i would suggest coco rice. it is small and service is always fast. the food is tasty and you could reserve the whole booth that runs the length of the wall.

Group of 30 on King West?

you didn't give much in the way of price range that you are looking for, so i hope this helps. first thing that came to mind in Crush Wine Bar, they have private rooms that are quite beautiful.
here is a link.

How to change user name

i just noticed that there is a karen, all lower case, and i have been using KAREN all upper case for as long as i can remember. this seems confusing to me. for a moment, i thought that someone was logging in under my account.
