Which Congee Wong (or similar) is best in GTA?

Congee and Noodle House at Don Mills/Finch is a good substitute of Congee Wong. It is slightly cheaper than Congee Wong however I think the food tastes better.

Two Goblets at Kitchener/Waterloo - are they any good?

I'll be visiting Waterloo on Friday night and would like to have German food as dinner and found Two Goblets on google. Does anyone know if they serve grilled Pork Hox as my friend is craving for one. What about the quality of the food? Are there any alternate choice you would recommend? Furthermore, is a reservation necessary for Friday night and is parking space easy to find in the area? Thanks in advance!

Rare sliced roast beef in TO - where to find

Get the Strip Loin Roast at Bruno's. They can cut for you in different lengths.

Authentic Taiwanese Food in Toronto?

Thanks for the input. I ended up going to Deli Viet and ordered 3 cups chicken, oyster pancake and eggplant pot. The portions were great. However, there was too much flour in the pancake and the oysters were not fresh and the chicken was way too watery for my liking. I'll pass on the desserts as well as I wasn't impressed by the Red Bean Ice Crush. The red beans weren't even cooked through at all and it was very chewy.

FROZEN DIM SUM

What's a good place to buy the frozen ones?

FROZEN DIM SUM

Your best bet would be Amoy or Doll. There's a local brand with white and green packaging that has huge portions, but then the 'siu mai' has the texture and taste of a fishball.

Authentic Taiwanese Food in Toronto?

I am looking for a place that serves Taiwanese food, perferrably not those coffee shops who specializes in bubble tea and selling food on the side. I am looking for a place that serves "Three Cups Chicken 三杯雞" to be specific. Any suggestions fellow chowhounders?

Thanks in advance!

French restaurant recommendation needed

I am looking for an authentic French restaurant, willing to spend up to $80/head excluding drinks, no tourist traps please. Location does not matter as long as it is inside the GTA. Any recommendations fellow chowhounders?

Thanks in advance!

Pho

Staying at Tai Hang eh? Agree on what you said, the broth/size/value are no match.

Where can I find siracha?

Most Loblaws/T&T will have it. Lee Kum Kei will be the easiest brand you can find. But I believe there is this brand which has a clear bottle and manufactured in Los Angeles will give you the most authentic flavour as I've seen most Viet/Thai restaurants have that.

Maxim's pastry - gone WAY down hill!!

I agree the place has gone downhill quite a lot. The cakes I had there within these few months were not fresh and tasteless. Maybe because of over expansion after they moved to the bigger shop at their Finch location?

Aoyama Sushi Vs Zen Japanese?

I am a regular patron of Aoyama and would like to try Zen soon. Is it really hard to reserve a table even on weekday nights?

Best Cantonese take-out in Scarborough?

i suggest Joy Fortune Chinese Cuisine (禧運小炒王) on 3453 Vic Park in the area. They are easily noticed with yellow signs in the street plaza that has a Subway in it on the east side of Vic Park south of McNicoll. They have a variety of dishes priced at $5.99 each.

Anyone been to Kaze for Japanese?

It was good when it first opened in 2005 but it had gone downhill significantly in my last few visits. The servers were rude as well.

NINKI on Adelaide

Haven't been there for a while, but then I really enjoyed the Jumbo Shrimp Don on the dinner menu. The sashimi there were GROSS as pescatarian mentioned and there bentos definitely do not worth the price.

As for the nationality of the operators, the sushi chefs speak Mandarin while the owner speaks Cantonese.

Hong Kong

Zen is NOT authentic IN ALL ASPECTS and it does not target to genuine HK people. It's more to the fusion side and the price is certainly a rip-off. You should check out http://www.openrice.com for recommendations.
