iso crab boil seasoning in the gta

I've never tried Old Bay, but it's the one that's always mentioned in recipes for crab boils.

Give Pasquale Brothers a call 416-364-7397 (in Etobicoke). I've bought Zatarin's Liquid Concentrated Shrimp and Crab Boil there.

President's Choice Black Label

Instead of spending big bucks expanding their product line, they should concentrate on lowering their ridiculously high prices.

Poppy Seed Cooking Oil

If you're into online shopping, this place might be of interest (ships from Santa Cruz CA).

Dang, that stuff is expensive! 16 oz = 38 bucks.

Lindemans Framboise Lambic Beer in Toronto/GTA?

Sipping on some Lindemans Kriek at this very moment. Yum. Picked some up at the Queen/Coxwell LCBO. They've brought a bunch of Belgian products in. Yahoo! I'll be back tomorrow and empty my bank account.

New to Windsor

Tunnel bbq for delivery. Very unique bbq sauce (the original one). I've ordered the sauce online in the past (I live in TO), but I tried their online store today and it seems to be down.

Best Thing You Ever Ate - Toronto

How I miss New York Subway. The best hangover cure was always a small chicken burrito, extra hot. Yeah it's simple, but it was always messy, delicious, and comforting. I always felt better after one. I'm having serious burrito withdrawal.

Ontario Wild Blueberries

I grew up north of Sudbury in a little place called Skead. The best blueberries on the planet. Ask the locals for the directions to Pike Lake Mountain. I'm moving to BC so I'm giving up this secret spot.


Which Toronto Supermarkets sell

My local No Frills sells it (Gerrard/Coxwell).

Cambro Containers in Toronto

I got mine at Tap Phong Trading 360 Spadina Ave (just north Of Dundas).

Great Caterer in GTA

Sorry, I just checked her site and it hasn't been updated recently (it's been a while since I used her company). Worth an email to her though.

Great Caterer in GTA

Lisa Shamai Cuisiniere is fantastic. Check out her website.

Which LCBO has the best beer selection?

Oh yeah, and just a stones throw east of Burger's Priest.

Which LCBO has the best beer selection?

In the east end, the store at Queen St E and Coxwell has a great selection. Lots of micros.

Where to find pisco sour mix in GTA and surrounding area.

Did your in-laws bring up the Pisco too? I've been looking Pisco for a while now (read years). The LCBO site doesn't show any in my area. I like it in the traditional sour but it makes a really interesting replacement for Tequila in a Margarita.

Spice Place has Crystal. They also ship to Canada.

Alphonso mangoes yet?

I just checked them out at FreshCo at Gerrard/Vic Park. They were way past prime (rotten to be precise). Maybe they'll get more in. And they are indeed Alphonso mangos.

Alphonso mangoes yet?

FreshCo has them advertised in their weekly (May 27) flyer for 8.99 for a case of 6.

Burger Brats - A burger joint on Adelaide West


Best empanadas in Kensington?

Jumbo Empanadas is the way to go. Get the chicken and add some of their amazing salsa in/on it. The owner (Irene Morales) is a really nice, friendly, hard working person.

Does anyone drink skim MILK - what brand are you buying?

All of Loblaws stuff is way, way overpriced. Great to see more FreshCo stores popping up (new store at Vic Park and Gerrard). Way better selection (and better smelling, cleaner stores) than No Frills if you want to save a few bucks.

Skim milk... I like Natrel.

NY Subway Will Be Closing After This Weekend - Building to Be Torn Down

Horrible news. Dino is one of the hardest working cooks in TO. I'm moving to BC and one of the things I've been regretting leaving TO is to never again wedge a dripping small chicken burrito, extra hot please, into my greedy gob.

They need to re-open.


Grilltime - Laird Drive


I re-heat roast beef as well as left over steak in ziplock bags in a warm water bath around 115-120 degrees. It works really well.


Maybe I have no taste, but I think the Magnum looks great with my decor (modern). I gave my 4 Peugeots away to friends.

Olive Oil Irini from Greece

I buy it at my local No Frills at Coxwell and Gerrard ($7.99).

Warning on a couple of horrible tasting products!

Ever since Loblaw (George Weston Ltd.) purchased T&T the stores have gone downhill. They've recently purchased Ace Bakery as well. God help the quality level of their fine bread.

Just what this province needs... another monopoly.
