best pastas in Toronto, 2014

Some of their pastas (esp. lunch ones) are nothing to travel for, but the dinner pastas (like the one Charles mentions) are worth a trip out. I had a nice one with Manila clams, yuzu, shiso and a few other ingredients.

New Pizza Joint at Donlands and Danforth - Big House Pizza

Based on your report, I think I'll go back now that they are "2.0" and try a less gimmicky pizza.

Healthy Delivery in Etobicoke???

Rose also has a more personal service. Etobicoke is certainly in her delivery area.

Tasting of Vintage Ports from 1963, 66, 70

As I understand the web site, members get first pick, but if there are spots left over, then non-members can register at the guest rate.

Thanks. Sounds interesting. I also like how they emphasize using public transit.

5 Guys Burgers and Fries: Still don't see what the big deal is?

Went to 5 Guys once, that was enough for me. I was burping potatoes all night.

Regional Egg Roll Styles

In Toronto, it's usually cabbage and bean sprouts, maybe some tiny shreds of carrot, rarely some bits of ground pork.

Danforth Pizza House for sale

I got a pizza from there on Friday and quite enjoyed it. It seemed well up to the same quality as Angelo's.

I wasn't super thrilled that I got told forty minutes and then got told another twenty minutes when I came back. Still, it did mean the rain had let up quite a bit.

Here's hoping their business plan has them on track to make profits.

Chowfind: An authentic tasting 'Instant' Singapore Laksa Noodle La Mien good enough for Chowhounders!

I tried one bowl of each without any additions.

They were nice enough, but I agree you need to add more to make it a complete meal. There are some nice suggestions here I will try next time.

A typo. Thank you for not flagging my post.

Finally picked some of these up.

The Lhaksa noodles are delicious. The curry flavour is nice, but no contest with the Lhaksa flavour.

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.

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?

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.
