Mini Burgers

Medium Rare in Etobicoke carries a variety of sliders (beef, bison, boar and chicken) that are made in-house. They usually come frozen and I am not sure if they would deliver or not. Best to give them a call.

Where to buy Ghirardelli product

I am pretty certain that I've seen it at the Lindt outlet on the Queensway.

Iberian Ham (Jamon Iberico) in Toronto?

I saw this on another forum.

Loblaws (I assume selects ones) has Fermin Iberico and Serrano ham on sale for $1.99 for 100g. YMMV.

So far the only reported GTA sighting was Bayview and Hwy 7.

I've never had any before but have read enough about it that I always wanted to try it and now seems like as good a time as any.

Here's hoping one of my local Loblaws is stocking it.

BBQ tools for Father's Day

It's not quite midtown or downtown but Sobie's Barbecue should have everything you need and then some.

Trips to Costco will never be the same!

Maybe where Max's Market used to be?

Steaks in the West End - Medium Rare VS Bruno's VS ...?

I'll admit, I have a bias towards Medium Rare. Connie (the owner) has treated me superbly since I started frequenting the shop. They are very accomdating and the quality is almost always excellent.

I went to Philly?

No problem.

I don't check them often either, but I happen to be purchasing a couple of Lindt vouchers and saw it, so I thought I'd post it.

There is a deal on Teambuy for this place with three different options to choose from. Unlimited buys too.

Might pick one up for myself.

Bison meat in Toronto?

Totally agree. Picked up a Bison Rib Eye (among other things) last weekend. It cost close to $30/lb.

My concerns and fears were totally unfounded. I've been back many times since my post and it's business as usual despite Frank's passing.

Coming from a small business background, I feel it's important to support small businesses as much as possible. Even if it means spending more money.

Re: prepared foods: Thus far I have only tried their Tourtiere pie which I spit with my grandfather. We both liked it! On my last shopping trip I wanted to get another one but they were sold-out, so I had to settle for the mini ones.

I will continue to support Medium Rare and I hope they keep on flourishing. IMHO, they are the best of the west. Hands down!!!

New Butcher/food store in Etobicoke

What was the damage (cost) of the pork shoulder? Thinking of smoking one before the weather changes permanently.

Based on your review, I will get some roast beef on my next trip.

New Butcher/food store in Etobicoke

I am glad to hear this from someone who's been shopping there since their infancy. After Frank's untimely passing, I was not sure what would happen with the shop.

I've been a customer since last December and have been hooked ever since.

I totally agree with you about their chicken, pies & bacon.

My inaugural cook on my new smoker was their chicken and while it didn't turn out like I had hoped, it was argubably the tastiest, juicest chicken I've ever had.

Their pies do sell out often. I just recently shared a whole Tourtiere pie with my grandfather who happens to be in his 99th year. His mother was French Canadian and it was a tradition in their home while growing up to have Tourtiere pie after returning home from Xmas mass. Which kind of makes him an authority on traditonal Touritere pie or so he says :) He gave his approval. Only thing we didn't like was the top crust seperated from the filling. Making the presentation unappealing.

I've been thinking recently about ordering a turducken for Christmas. Funny you would mention it.

Their bacon is a staple for me. I am embarressed to admit this but, I pick up a package ever time I go. Doesn't say much about my self discipline. I was under the impression their bacon was/is smoked in house.

I also like their charcuterie & sausages.

Where to find mini- burger buns or slider buns in Toronto?

I've seen them @ Loblaws.

I don't know what to make of this new deal. I've haven't been in the shop since Canada Day long weekend, so I don't know what has changed since Frank's passing. It would be hard to imagine nothing has changed. Obviously when a proprietor of a business passes away you expect some things to change. Also this deal is Butcher-esque discount wise. I think I'll sit this one out.

Red Cabin is closed

A sad day indeed. I've been a customer since my teens. Back then they were know as G & B Burgers. I wish I had know about their closing, I would have stopped in for one last chicken souvalki dinner. Congrats to Andy & Co on a well deserved retirement.

I just recently found out about Frank's (the owner and head butcher) passing. I was both stunned and saddened by the news. His store became my go to butcher shop and I never left disappointed. Frank really cared about his customers. I never had the need nor desire to patronize another shop. Frank, Next time I fire up the BBQ, I'll be thinking about you. RIP
