Bad Service - Libretto's on Ossington

i have also had terrible service at libretto which would be forgivable if the food was anything to write home about. there is a lot of fanfare for this restaurant but it is only ok imo.

Food delivery downtown..JustEat

i recommend tasteaway even though their restaurant selections isn't great. but if you get on their mailing list, you will regularly receive discounts of up to 40% off your order. that's a mega deal especially if you use it at restaurants with a 10% disocunt for pickup.

Pho Tien Thanh is one of the worst vietnamese restaurants i have ever been to. I've visited many times since moving onto the Ossington strip and overtime their food has become laughably bad. Their vermicelli bowls look like a bowl of left over scraps for the dog. The pho is salty with very few aromatics. They are so stingy with the herbs you'd think there was a world wide shortage and when I've complained they play stupid like they've never heard the word herb before. Pho Tien Thanh is horrible.

I have not been able to find exceptional vietnamese in Toronto yet. I am willing to travel into the outer regions of the city. So is Pho Dau Bo REALLY worth the trip?

wild blueberries

Where can I find wild blueberries from Quebec in Toronto and also for a reasonable price. I was at a farmer's market today where a pint of wild blueberries was $11. unheard of!

Expanding Montreal’s Third Wave Coffee Scene

I moved to Toronto 8 months ago. I have been to almost all of the most notable 3rd wave cafes in town and none of them are even remotely as good as the likes of Cafe Myriad, Dispatch, Neve, Sardine, Boris, Pikolo etc

In Toronto there is locavore obsession and unfortunately the notable cafes purchase from sub-par, inconsistent local roasters. There is also not the obsession with process that many of the montreal shops practice.

This is all very surprising since in my brain, Montreal is usually behind Toronto in trends and 3rd wave coffee is still relatively new in Montreal. I think that Myriad is the gold standard and I have been too spoiled to enjoy coffee in Toronto.

I love Tim Hortons because...

there's a starbucks right off the highway in brockville

personally, i do not care for starbucks - i'd rather (and i shudder to say this) get a coffee at mcdonalds which is surprisingly good.

there is so much chow-worthy food in montreal that an 18 year old visitor should not have a free moment to sample the insipid tim hortons. besides, it will be in vermont soon enough - they're all over upstate new york.

shawarma question

Is there any particular reason why shawarma retaurants griddle freshly cut meat before serving? Is it a health code requirement in Toronto? I've never seen this before moving here. It's not a very good idea.

it's not that it was a marketing ploy - it was just pure elitism meant only to feed egos, not souls

Food Trucks 2014

the real problem is that vendors do not get to choose their location - not that they are dispersed. having said that, that metcalfe location is often busy busy busy.
