Poblano chiles on the West Island?

Hi all

I need some poblano chiles for a recipe I'm making, does anyone know if I can get them anywhere on the West Island?

Thanks in advance!

Cabane a sucre Au Pied de Cochon

Hi all

Have a reservation here tonight and am really looking forward to it. I know my friends and I won't be able to finish all the food, is it still acceptable to bring your own tupperware? Feels strange to do it, but seems like in the past lots of people brought their own?

Tonic water on the West Island

Hi all

I'm in search of decent tonic water ( Fever Tree, Q, Fentiman's) on the West Island. I was so happy to find Fentiman's at the Metro on St Charles in Beaconsfield recently but now they're sold out and didn't seem sure when ( or if) they'd be getting more. Thanks in advance!

Gluten free thai/vietnamese?

While you're correct about the rice noodles etc. many brands of soy sauce do indeed contain gluten, and many thai restaurants also use flour as a thickener in their sauces ( I wouldn't know this other than having been out with this particular friend many times in the past and painstakingly going through menu ingredients with the wait and kitchen staff....)

Gluten free thai/vietnamese?

Hi
I'm going for dinner with two friends, one of whom is extremely picky and has requested thai ( preferably) or Vietnamese food, and the other who can't eat gluten. Does anyone know of any restaurants that could accommodate both? The restaurant doesn't have to be entirely gluten free but hopefully offer at least a gluten free dish or two my friend could order. Thanks in advance!

When Joe Beef is on vacation...

I would most definitely recommend Tuck Shop. Have had a couple great dinners there and have sent several others there who had similar positive experiences.
400 coups is also good but not as memorable, imho. Haven't been to Lawrence and personally wasn't overly impressed with Hotel Herman.
Couldn't agree with you more re.Garde Manger. Was impressed a few years back but found recent visits disappointing.

ISO cranberries

Hi

I'm trying to make the most of this never ending winter by roasting a turkey tomorrow and would like to make some cranberry sauce to go with.
I know I'm out of season for fresh, so frozen would work too, just want to avoid the canned sauce. Does anyone know where I could find frozen cranberries?

Thanks!

Where to buy bowls for pho?

Hi

Hi
I am making pho for the first time and would like to know where I could buy some large pho bowls.
Since they'll be used only occasionally, am looking to spend as little as possible.
Will travel to get them but the closer to CDN the better.

Thanks!

Ice cream open late

Hi all
Am cycling the Tour de Nuit tonight and am thinking on such a warm night a post ride ice cream will most definitely be in order so am looking for ice cream places that are open until at least 10:30 11ish
Am assuming most places will be open on such a beautiful summer Friday night?
The tour ends at Olympic park but we"ll be cycling home through the Plateau and Mile End so suggestions in any of those neighborhoods are great.

Thanks!

Ritz serving afternoon tea?

Hi
Does anyone know if the Ritz still offers afternoon tea?
Inquired several times last fall and was told it was their intention to offer it eventually but couldn't provide a timeline.

Thanks

Frozen artichoke hearts

Checked at both Akhavan and Adonis and both places carry only the bottoms. No luck in the search for the frozen hearts....

Thai chile plant

Hi
At Jean Talon this summer I saw several vendors selling plants with what looked like some kind of thai chiles growing on them.
I'd like to buy one for a friend as a gift and was wondering if anyone knew where I could get one at this time of year?

Thanks!
