The Beast Tasting Menu - Whole Beast

Yes, I went for dinner recently...it was great. All the plates are small and come out at a tapas style pace. It was fun to share and try a little of everything.

Looking for AGAVE NECTAR in Downtown

Has anyone seen it around and is it very dear?
thanks guys.

Ace Bakery ALTERNATIVE(the little guy)

I'll be looking for a poppyseed egg bun. It'll be a take on the traditional chicago dog. Ideally footlong, then sold as 1/2 or whole. I'm hoping I can find a local butcher to make them for me a few/couple cases at a time and freeze them. I haven't been to st lawrence in ages, but i think that's where i'll have to start.

Hahaha
I am looking to have this bread brought to me Fresh 4-6 days a week, knowing i'll be paying for it. That's why I am trying to find someone large enough to provide at least a couple things i'm after. The bread must sliced as it will be used on a griddle and a bun just won't work.

You seem to be on the ball. So i'll ask a highly off topic question...Have you got any idea who might produce very high quality footlong weiners? I think that one's going to be another challenge.
I wish I were from the city and might have a clue where to begin on some of this sourcing.

Ace Bakery ALTERNATIVE(the little guy)

Looking for something a little cheaper, i could go as high as $1/slice, but it'd better be GREAT sliced bread. It's a lounge concept, I'm after bread for a selection of high end grilled cheeses(a really nice portuguese or italian sliced loaf) , a really soft hot dog type roll, a sesame/onion white roll and small Rye Bread rolls. I'd like to find someone to do all of these for me, and then feature them on my menu. That's the plan.

Ace Bakery ALTERNATIVE(the little guy)

I agree it's over rated. It's only appeal is it's huge selection. I'll try Caldense, thanks. They seem to have a few locations.

Ace Bakery ALTERNATIVE(the little guy)

I'm currently writing a menu and in search of an alternative to ACE bakery. I'm looking to support the little guy in the GTA that bakes a variety of fresh breads and can keep up with restaurant demand. I have been searching and coming up short. There must be a production bakery in the city that competes with ACE bakery, no?

Help me support the independent bakery.

Dinner near Wellington and John on Saturday

I'd try that new joint Wvrst. It's at 609 King West. A bit of a walk. From what I hear, it's worth it if you're into Sausages, Beer and Duck Fat Frites(because that's all they serve!!!). I know I am!
Pretty casual tho, from what I hear. But sounds like a cool concept.

Failing that, I agree that Rodney's Specials are always 'on'.

Patio with Cheap Beer Downtown?

Does anyone know of a patio with great beer specials. This afternoon is too good to waste!!!
Maybe cheap pitchers or draughts?

CRYSTAL HOT SAUCE / CAJUN PRODUCTS in the GTA?

TorontoJo, thanks for the heads up, I was going to head that direction this afternoon.

Breadcrumbs, I've hit up the website for some info.

Thanks to both of you!

CRYSTAL HOT SAUCE / CAJUN PRODUCTS in the GTA?

Has anyone seen a shop carrying Crystal Hot Sauce? Or any cajun, NOLA food stuffs? I've just moved to the city and i'm running dangerously low on this delicious sauce.

Anyone know a cool Toronto Food Blog? Looking to find some cool food spots.

That's hard to believe that they would make that change!

Thanks again for the info!

I do enjoy Chowhound. But I was looking for a Blog as opposed to a msg board... Something independent.

I'm new to the city and excited to embrace the food scene in Toronto. Any advice on how to get 'in-the-loop' would be great.

Thanks.
