Where to get chocolate covered banana popsicles?

Hi.

Over lunch a few people mentioned how much they always enjoys chocolate covered banana Popsicles whenever they visit Israel. They had these when they were growing up and used to buy them on the beach. Any idea if these are available in Toronto?

Skylon Tower AWFULLLL~! (Niagara Falls-REVIEW)

The safest bet in Niagara Falls? The Swiss Chalet on Lundy's Lane. Everything else should be avoided.

Seriously, what does that city have against decent food?

Any good lunch spots near Danforth / Woodbine?

Nothing too expensive (> $10.00). Just a place to sit down and enjoy a meal.

Where to Go for 19th Birthday?

Why not have dinner at one spot and party at another?

I'm sure there's some fun spots to eat at, then afterward go to a good bar / whatever.

Why not AYCE sushi? Fun, filling, and not expensive.

Recommended caterers in Mississauga?

Hi.

I'm looking for any recommended caterers in the Mississauga area. We're going to be serving about 10~ 20 people. Indian or Chinese are preferred, but any other recommendations will be considered. We'll be picking the food up ourselves so we're not looking to have anyone visit our place with servers etc.

Thanks!

Best place to get a cup of tea?

Luba's downstairs at St. Lawrence Market makes a great Chai Latte. Way better than the carpenters glue served at Starbucks.

I'm looking for an informal place to go for a Thanksgiving meal. Does Fran's serve Thanksgiving lunch or dinner?

Any other suggestions?

Thanksgiving lunch in Toronto?

Chowhounds,

Seeing as Thanksgiving is (almost) around the corner I'd like to start planning a lunch for several co-workers and myself. Any recommendations for restaurants serving a nice sit-down Thanksgiving lunch? I'm hoping to keep it under $25.00 per person and close to the subway line.

Thanks in advance for your suggestions,

Ron

Where to get Jay's Potato Chips in Toronto?

A co-worker of mine used to bring these back from his visit's to the states. In short; these are seriously the best potato chips money can buy. They're so-o-o-o-o good it's hard not to eat a bag at one sitting.

I don't think these are available in Canada but I'll ask anyway; does anyone know if and where you can get these in Toronto?

Thanks.

Thanks for the tip! This is just down the street from me! I'll be checking it out this week. The fish dumplings sound interesting.

Where to buy Black Sesame Seed Ice Cream?

BTW I went to Echo last night. For dessert we asked for Black Sesame Seed Ice Cream and the waitress told me they were out!

I'm hoping this is temporary ...

Marino's Pizza @ 355 Pitfield Rd Scarborough: any good?

I discovered this next to Roti Hut after lunch today. How's the pizza there? Any good? And do they have tables or is it just take-out?

Thanks.

What foods should I try in J-Town?

In the next few weeks I'm going to visit J-Town. What foods should I be sampling while I'm there? Also does anyone know if they sell Japanese snack foods like their variations on Kit-Kat or Pringles?

Thanks.

Where to buy Black Sesame Seed Ice Cream?

The black sesame seed ice cream I've had has a rich smoky flavour so this may be different than what you've had.

I imagine J-Town would have this. I'll be visiting anyway to check it out so I'll let people know if they stock it.

Where to buy Black Sesame Seed Ice Cream?

Is this a store or a restaurant? I'm looking to take home a carton.

Also would there be a difference in flavour between this and the Japanese variation?

Best Places to Eat in Yonge Eglinton?

La Salumeria (2021 Yonge St.) serve A-M-A-Z-I-N-G Prosciutto and Provolone sandwiches for take-out. They're served on crusty Italian rolls with lettuce, tomato, and a dash of olive oil. These are so good and so filling (and I'm a big guy).

Chinese BBQ duck in Scarborough?

I've been to Ruby but didn't know they served this. I'm assuming you order this from the back where they serve the vegetables and congee?

It's been awhile since I've had some decent BBQ duck. Any recommendations for a lunch place in the Scarborough area?
