For some reason I feel like they would be expensive because they're downtown. I'll give them a call though.

Thanks so much -- I called and they are lovely and professional -seeming, and previous posts make me excited to try their stuff. Can't wait.

Ali Baba's catering or other Lebanese caterer?

My partner and I are getting married in August, and for our entire relationship we've been borderline obsessive fans of Ali Baba's -- in particular the Bloor & Lansdowne location (others are not as good).

We're having a pretty laid back wedding so we wanted to get Ali Baba's to cater -- just drop off a bunch of trays of food on a buffet table. The only problem is the Ali Baba's guy is not the most reliable-seeming human being in the world. When we went to meet him he forgot the price list and was doing rough calculations on the back of a kleenex box.

Does anyone have experience with Ali Baba's as a caterer? Can anyone recommend another Lebanese place that does catering? I know Ghazale does and I'm getting a quote but I'm wondering if there are some great ones in the suburbs I would have never heard of. Again, nothing fancy, we just want a bunch of trays to be dropped off on a buffet table.

Thanks!

ISO: dishes that must be ordered 24 hours ahead

I initiated this thread to find more dishes for that story-the poster IS the star writer. I don't plan on doing it again because someone mentioned after I had written that post that I'm not the only writer to realize that you guys collectively know more about food than anyone else in the city, and anyone else could poach my story idea.

Sorry if any of you felt you shouldve got credit in there or something--I was trying not to blow my cover! Oh well.

burgurl, it was the Etsu chicken dish that made me start scouting around for more 24-hrs-ahead dishes! Whats_For_Dinner, Manybears, and pinkprimp: those are perfect. Lai Wah Heen still offers the beggar's chicken, and the chile rellenos at El Sol are ordered in advance too. And the Whole Beast one looks AMAZING.

FoodyDudey: do you know where I can order Raan at a restaurant in Toronto?

Anybody know of dishes at restaurants in the GTA where you have to order a day ahead to get it? Especially unusual dishes.
