ISO: crawfish in toronto

i remembered seeing them there at ikea before, even told my wife, who didn't believe me. do you think they had them when we got there, LOL. no. still not hearing the end of it. i'll show her this post though :) we just went to new orleans and she had them for the first time and LOVED them, so i'm going to have my folks over this weekend for a shellfish boil and would love to get some to put in. SLM is the best option i think for this time, but now that my ikea findings are confirmed, dispite or to spite my wife, i will be looking for them every time i go there now.

thanks for the help guys {and potential ammo to win a friendly arguement with the ikea info :) }

ISO: crawfish in toronto

anyone know where i can get crawfish {would prefer live, but i am realistic and will settle for frozen}? it will need to be a TTC-able place, i live in etobicoke but i am well versed in both chinatowns and don't mind a streetcar or subway ride.

5 Guys Burgers- Woodbridge

hero does do a decent fast food burger, but i've heard a ton of positive reviews about the 5 guys chain, and i'm looking forward to seeing what the buzz is about. that being said, i am bracing myself for all the burger snobs that will be posting on this thread asking about if 5 guys does medium rare burgers. i swear, they are almost as bad as the "the curds have to squeek" poutine people.

2010 closings

UPDATE: the landlord has taken over the operations and will keep the restaurant open. the issues were around non payment of rent as far as i know, which won't be an issue now that the landlord owns the operation.

The Elusive Big Xtra in Toronto!

i've heard lots of people order a quarter pounder and ask it to be made like a big xtra. it was, afer all, essentially a quarter pounder with cheese with whole leaf lettuce, tomato and mayo.

kind of like ordering a mcdouble made like a mac. costs like .60 or .80 more but its the same, just without the middle bun

add My Place in Bloor west Village to the list. my buddy works there and just called and told me that they locked the doors. new it had been in trouble for a bit, so it isn't entirely unexpected. a place of that size was practically doomed from the get go with the recession

thanks for all the input so far everyone, we apparently have a ton of places to hit up! the one thing i forgot to mention is that we are bound to the TTC, but it seems as 99.9% of the places are right on lakeshore or very close to it.

has anyone been to the big asian supermarket up browns line? i'm used to doing my grocery shopping at oriental harvest and kensington, would it be comaprable to any of the spadina places, more like T&T or is it unique?

sweet, thanks for the input. kalamata, lakeshore fish and chips are high up on my hit list, i'll look into the others too {except buritto boyz, they have never really impressed me}. its good to get a rec. for a bakery since there are a few in the area. have you tried the roti place in the strip mall beside lakeshore fish and chips? what about the burger place across from the tims?

my wife and i just moved and have noticed a TON of hole in the wall spots as well as higher end looking places. we've been to sloppy joes for wings already {decent}, but thats it so far. can anyone point us in the right direction for other spots to hit up? all price ranges and styles are fair game, we eat everything from goat roti to burgers to foie gras and EVERYTHING in between.
