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.

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

I was there at the start of May and the meat was tender enough, but there was no flavour or spice to it.

What does "one-off" mean in this context?

add it up

Mangia E Bevi for a restaurant. An Asian snack food place in Pacific Mall (not sure of the name) for a specialty store.

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

So, you're saying basically the same as all packaged Asian noodles.

Wheelchair Friendly Restaurants

I'm looking for some wheelchair friendly restaurants in East End Toronto or western Scarborough to take my mom out for a meal.

Food should be fresh and tasty, I don't require fancy dining, but suggestions of upper scale places are certainly welcome.
