Johnny's: Single Burger, Double Yuck

The only good thing at Johnny's used to be the milkshakes. Haven't been in a few years, so I can't say if even that is true.

New bar Danforth bar/restaurant Local 1794??

Aaaanddd....another Chowhound thread derailed. :)

Danforth Pizza House for sale

Walked by Monday night, and there was a big plastic tarp sign "50 Years of Experience", so it looks like someone is trying to make a go of it.

I plan to drop in soon and order one to see how much it has changed.

I'd be more happy if the booze cans shut down, not the Mom and Pop places.

Still, doesn't mean I'm not going to try out new gastropubs/fancy marketing terms.

Lay's Do us a Flavour - any good?

Bragging rights for grossness -- typical kids' behaviour.

Kudos to all here for taking one for the team. :)

Morgans on Danforth

Been to The Wren twice, and I can't say I found the servers there any more or less friendly than at Morgan's.

A Four-Year-Old reviews... The French Laundry

I don't mind the money spent, but I found this piece way less cute than the author(s) probably intended it to be.

A four-year old not liking refined small plate cuisine and making cute faces? What a surprise!!!!!!

Pot-sized spaghetti?

Err...yeah, I cook for adults, and I would just wait for the spaghetti to soften up so it would all fit in.

Sonoya Japanese Ramen - First Markham Place

Isn't it that the original Kenzo (on Yonge, between Steeles and Finch) moved to downtown, but the new owners kept the old name?

New bar Danforth bar/restaurant Local 1794??

Yeah, they had NO holes for the longest time. Not sure what else they need to do, just hope it happens soon.

A tweet from their account @EveryonesLocal on July 7th was hopeful, but no activity since then. :(

Anatolian's Turkish Halal Restaurant - WOW!

I went there for lunch, and they had a dedicated lunch menu. $9.99 and great value for that price.

I went to Philly?

Any onion flavour would have been welcome on the day.

Rediscovered Masellis Supermarket

You reminded me how much I love this place.

Bad Service - Libretto's on Ossington

Yeah, I gathered lunch was running far too long. But, it can't hurt to contact management. At worst, there's a new restaurant to cross off your visiting choices.

I went to Philly?

Went to the Eglinton location, got provolone (because Cheese Whiz disgusts me no matter where you put it) and onions.

Meat was good, but I tasted neither provolone or onion in my sandwich. Someone else who had the same toppings agreed that the onions would be better caramelized.

The hot pepper side was appreciated, as was the Yoohoo. Not a bad place, but not a destination for Philly steak.

Morgans on Danforth

Tried the Korean chicken.

Maybe it was an off night for the chef. The bok choi was watery and unseasoned. I can ignore the latter, but not the former.

The rice reminded me of Uncle Ben's Wild Rice. The dipping honey sauce was OK.

The chicken was the stand out, tasty and juicy, with the spices really making it shine.

I would order it again for the chicken, but not very often.

GTA's largest 'Har Gow'?!

I'm in the small Har Gow with thin skin camp.

Anybody remember Switzers on Spadina?

Coleman's is indeed gone.

Great food, informal atmosphere

I like Mangia E Bevi at King and Ontario. If you both are into thin crust pizza and pasta.

Market Street Redevelopment... new restaurants coming.

What in heaven's name are "modern" tapas?

They pushed them downward big time. I remember $40 entrees when they first opened their doors.

A delicious authentic 'Real McCoy' Thai chowmeet at Khao San Road

Well, that's a good point. I guess as long as chowhounds are involved, there is a chowmeet.

Now I'm tempted to organise one myself here.

A delicious authentic 'Real McCoy' Thai chowmeet at Khao San Road

Yeah, not really a "chowmeet" by how I understood the term, either.

Still, I care not at all whether they had dishes available for the general public, or whether they flew in the ancient Imperial Thai Chef Brigade to do the cooking. A meal was presented and described, and all I want to do is look at it and vicariously experience it.

The fact that 7 out of 9 dishes are actually on the regular menu is an additional welcome bonus piece of info.

I really didn't find this posting obnoxious. Enthusiastic, yes.

I seem to have heard of this restaurant before. I don't think it needs CH to drive patrons to its doors.

anyone eaten at Schwartz's in Montreal recently? [moved from Ontario board]

Have to take compensation from a mediocre experience wherever you can.
