Quebec City

I'm visiting next week as well. I think your best bet is to search the forum with Quebec as the keyword as the Chow community in QC doesn't seem to be very sizable.

Crispy Chicken Skin - High Heat or Low and Slow?

Most recipes that I have seen suggest leaving the chicken uncovered in the fridge overnight to dry the skin and make it more crispy.

Finally, authentic Chinese Spicy Cumin Lamb Kebab in my backyard

Matt, you talking about Silk Road?

wondering where I can buy an IR thermometer in Toronto in person?

You can go to Ontario Gas BBQ.

R&D - New update. Photo and menu.

I stopped by for drinks and snacks at the bar a few weeks ago. The food IMO was ok but way overpriced. I would maybe go back to have a couple of beers and pork buns but that's it.

Help Please - Lunch around North York Civic Centre

At Centrepoint Mall at Yonge and Steeles there is Congee Queen and a Laffa place beside it. Haven't tried he Laffa joint.

Beside that is *barf* Pickle Barrel

BBQ cleaning service in the GTA?

I booked these guys for a job and they didn't show. I called twice during the day to get an update, no one was there to pick up the phone. Called them later in the evening and they gave the excuse that the truck that was supposed to take care of me had an oil leak. However, they didn't have the courtesy to return my earlier calls and would they have even bothered following up with me?

Completely unacceptable given the fact that I booked this appointment a month ago.

Pho 88 @ Spadina

The sign in front of Pho 88 says that they will reopen in March.

Restaurant with a Meeting Room


Thanks to all who responded to my posting about 5 days in Boston. I already have plans to go to Clio and East Coast Grill and I'm sure I will be visiting some of the other recommendations during my stay.

Can anyone recommend a restaurant that has a meeting room where we can have a business meeting for about a dozen people and have snacks and beverages served? The meeting will take place at 4:00 so dinner will not be on the cards.

5 Days in Boston

My wife and I will be spending 5 days in Boston for a combination work/vacation trip. Any suggestions on 2 to 3 restaurants in each of the following categories would be greatly appreciated:

- high end dining - price up to $200 per head including beverages
- restaurants at anywhere from 50 to $100 per head
- cheap eats - what shouldn't be missed such as lobster rolls, burger joints, etc.

We will be staying at the Fairmont Copley Plaza and won't have a vehicle.
