ISO herbal coffee

David's tea is great. There is also a great little tea store at Rosedale. Golden Mint at College and Yonge. All things Tea on Bloor near Bathurst is probably my favourite. I would give internet sources as well, but I rather support local.

ISO herbal coffee

Did you consider teas? Or herbal tisanes like mates?

Bread flour

I bake breads all the time and have found a few decent sources for my flour.
Simply Bulk (they have a location near Ossington on Bloor and a location in the Danforth) or Rube's in St. Lawrence Market.

My loblaws (Dupont and Christis) also has 5kg bags for relatively cheap, but I actually prefer the bulk flours. I have even found that the no name unbleached all purpose actually does a pretty good job - it has a fairly high level of protein.

Citrus Oils plus

Hello all,

I am looking for a stores in Toronto where I can get higher end gourmet cooking supplies. In this particular instance, I really need citrus oils. But I am also looking for good dipping oils and vinegars.

I know I could go to a chain like Whole Foods, but I really want local, preferably cheap (I am living on a meager budget these days), and even better from a purveyor who is helpful and passionate about cooking. I used to live in DC, and had a few such shops I often visit.

Cheers!

A Good Deli

I am looking for a cheap place to get a great sandwich (I stress the cheap seeing as I am a grad student on a strict budget). I am especially looking for a good chicken salad sandwich or a pastrami on rye.

I am in Cabbagetown, but spend most my life at U of T...anywhere near either of these places would be awesome.

If you happen to once be from DC, I am thinking GW Deli type sandwiches here...I know long shot but I thought I would try it.

Bulk Foods

Thanks! I am actually in Cabbagetown, but was planning on a trip to Kensington quite soon. I just really want to find some place to buy like 5 pounds each of various dried fruits and nuts to make my own trail mix and energy bars, but so far everywhere has been too expensive, so again thanks!

Bulk Foods

Hi,

I am fairly new to Toronto...in fact, Canada for that matter. U of T student. I am looking for someplace that is TTC accessible that has cheap bulk dried fruits, nuts, and spices. Obviously, I may have to go to more than one place. I stress the cheap - i am the model of the poor college student these days.

Any help would be great!

Restaurant Supply in DC

Hello all,

I am looking for a restaurant supply store in DC. I have been searching, but with no success. Could you keep it Metro accessible - or at least somewhat - as I go to GW and have no car?

Also, any ideas for places to get fresh herbs?

Thanks!
