Road trip to Toronto, weird shirts, art, coffee, and doughnuts.

If you like performance art, you can check out Social Capital Theatre on the Danforth and get a comedy performance and a dive bar in the same space. Upstairs is actually not bad, for full dive, go downstairs to the Black Swan.

Uncle Ray's Hot Chips

Seen them at multiple convenience stores on the Danforth, and a while ago at the store on the corner of Queen and Coxwell.

That Home Hardware is pretty random if they stock potato chips!

Edward Levesque's

Cripes, first "Local 1794", now this. I hope this isn't going to start a mad trend for restaurant names.

Chowhound's top 10 in GTA- 2015 version

My top ten are all in the "bargain" category, so I never bother posting in such exalted restaurant company. :)

So sad: Vachon cakes are not what they used to be. They changed the recipe!

Dare we hope for cane sugar? :)

I used to live on the caramel ones, but did enjoy the occasional Jos. St. Louis. Now I'll have to go sample each one, purely for scientific reasons.

New bar Danforth bar/restaurant Local 1794??

Went there last night.

Great food, especially the apple pie coleslaw (don't know what the official name is, but that's what it will be in my heart and mind from now on). Looking forward to working my way through the menu.

Super service as well, friendly without being annoying.

Looks like it's being aimed at the same crowd who would go to Morgan's, but the atmosphere at Local 1794 is a lot less stuffy.

Thirty minutes in, I looked up and said to myself, "Oh yeah, this used to be Columbo's Pizza".

What is a place you frequent that you wouldn't expect to ever see mentioned on chowhound?

TKOs @ Coxwell/Danforth.

Blue collar sports bar with really delicious bar food. Not at all from a Sysco Heat'n'Serve vat.

New bar Danforth bar/restaurant Local 1794??

Yes!

I saw them tidying up inside Saturday night. Looking forward to heading out there this week.

" Fisherman Lobster Clubhouse Restaurant " - The 'other' giant lobster specialist in town

I've been there once and can only echo the negative comments. Upselling, greasy typhoon lobster chunks. Can't see ever returning, especially for the prices charged.

Touhenboku Ramen

They had a vegetarian broth option for a while (not sure if it's still offered) which I quite enjoyed. But I haven't been here in a while since other ramen places are much more convenient for me to get to.

To be paying rent and utilities without revenue for that long makes it chancy that it will work even if it does open.

I'm hopeful, given how much I liked Taps and Tales, but am not setting my hopes too high.

Yeah. I really wonder what the issue was with the water pipes, if that's what really caused the delay.

I think the owner was a bit more optimistic about when he could open up. When we chatted briefly, he gave a date, I jokingly added three months to it, and the date I gave was...really a long time ago.

Cafe Demetre's new menu... not loving it.

And frozen yogurt just isn't the same either!

Yeah, any chocolate sauce I've had always stays liquid. A place to avoid.

Do they advertise this as hot fudge sauce on the menu?

So I blue crab is a possible protein source when I make this.

Any suggestions on cooking crab? Will frozen cook up in the soup, or...?
