Where are you still eating that you were 20 years ago and is still good?

In no specific order or location:

Burger Shack
Boccone
Centre Street
Rol San
Bitondos
Webers
Congee Queen--may not be quite 20 years
La Paloma

Ribs that don't fall off the bone

Also agree with the Steak Pit...hard to beat the Mexican ribs with all the trimmings. They do a nice job packing for take-out as well.

Great group dinner at Tabule

Love Tabule!!

Small rehearsal dinner in North Toronto?

Trio is horrible...love Tubule
...we had dinner at Sip Wine Bar last Friday...located on Broadway 2 doors north of Eg. Place was hoping, service was great, and we all enjoyed our dinner. Primarily pizza and pasta, but I had swordfish which was delish. Don't know capacity, but they have a beautiful private room downstairs that I noticed when going to the bathroom.

One Night in Philly Near the Forumn

Heading to Philly from Toronto late June for the NHL draft. Staying and spending most of my time near the Forum. Looking for Italian, Spanish,or Greek options....mains between $20-$30. If I need to spend more for great food, not a problem.
Thanks in advance for any help.

Need help...there used to be an awesome diner on the East side of Bathurst,..north of Glencairn..it was in a 3-store strip-mall set back form Bathurst. It was there for decades and then closed and was replaced by a kosher cookie joint. Used to make the best club sandwiches and chicken salad...gone for over 10 years I would say.

Edulis, Actionolite, The Grove, Bero or other...help!

Thanks for the replies...not looking for upscale...just looking for good food in a nice environment. Thought about Richmond Station but am heading there with another group in 2 weeks so wanted something different. Like the idea of a tasting menu. also though about Bar Isabel, was there last month, but the only time I could get on the night needed was 8:45. Any other suggestions?

Warden & Finch

My son has a soccer tournament this Saturday at Warden & Finch. Was going to pack a picnic but the forecast looks very un-picnic -like. Can anybody provide some quick, healthy lunch options nearby...take-out/eat in.
Thanks in advance.

Kelseys...what to order?

Imodium..

Store bought h'orderves

I'd pick up a couple a hundred or so assorted samosas from Sultan of Samosas...link attached, along with a couple sides of Kristapsons smoked salmon (served with honey mustard, capers ,finely chopped onions and black bread), 2-3 assorted maki/sushi platters...and supplement anything either from a caterer or along Costco/President Choice apps.

King Street Belly Busters Opens Thursday!

Belly Busters was great 25 years ago when Mario would greet you by name and add a couple..."anybody looking" or "what a way to go my friend". Truth is raw ingredients are really very average..no name, salty meats and average veggies...nothing gourmet...nor artisan...just ain't that good and ain't that cheap!!

Brunch in North Toronto 2013

Try Vivetha Bistro on Yonge a couple block south of Loblaws on the West side of Yonge. Small place with friendly service and a fantastic brunch menu despite the odd name. Very inexpensive, delicious with very generous portions.
See attached link.

Dr. Laffa needs to requalify

Vinnie..a little mellow-dramatic. $7.00 for a massive, very tasty falafel, with about 10 different toppings to choose from. The lafa still has a very nice, chewy texture. Ate many, way worse, all over Israel last March.
