The $250 Watermelon at the Loblaws (at the Maple Leave Gardens store)

Toronto Star had an article about the watermelons. They purchased one, did a taste test, and weren't impressed.

CNE - 2014 - Food at the Ex

lots of places around town do that and it's never as a good as a fresh piece of ontario corn on its own.

Where to source Banh Mi Buns in Toronto?

so you're saying that a ciabatta is an acceptable substitute for a vietnamese baguette?

baguettes are not an acceptable sub!

ISO: Grocery shopping bags with short handles (in Toronto)

lol i don't see what the problem is since most of these bags have 2 sets of handles 1 short and 1 long. go to loblaws. yeesh.

Ribs that don't fall off the bone

I was recently at Electric Mud where the back ribs did not fall off the bone and were delicious!

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.

49th parallel or phil and sebastian

sweet that's actually a decent deal. was it for epic espresso or what?

Ontario sour cherries 2013

the fruit store beside metro on college and crawford has for 2.99 / lbs

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.

Little Saigon - Richmond Hill

sweet will do! maybe today

Little Saigon - Richmond Hill

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.

Jimmy Guaco's

m4 is more like a mall burrito

QDC Burger

that price sounds reasonable to me

The Price of Beer

correct, it can be 16 oz but at casa it's 14 oz and that's bullshit

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.

I love Tim Hortons because...

that's not the only starbucks on the 401

Anywhere in TO that has Singaporean Chilli Crab or Black Pepper Crab?

hawker bar from time to time

best call them

Casual Eats in Montreal

you should try out satay bros at the atwater market on a nice day.

I love Tim Hortons because...

nowadays the mccafe brand is light years ahead of timmy's

I love Tim Hortons because...

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.

Ici Bistro - Comically Dysfunctional

Formal dress is not on the menu in most Canadian restaurants these days

Nice terrasse with excellent food in Montreal

Les Enfants Terribles, not so good.

Station des Sports underserving patrons by 25%

but a pint is never supposed to be 14 oz

sergakis is a piece of shit

but his bars aren't alone. tons of bars serve 14 oz 'pints'. even casa del popolo.
