Rachel's Corned Beef Brisket

I braised two Rachel's brisket pieces yesterday in a Le Creuset. 325F for 3 hours, and they were perfect. Sorry to read of your experience.

Belgian fry booth opening on Gerrard and Parliament

I was stopped at that intersection this morning, and the storefront with the metal grate gives no indication that a restaurant is about to open behind it.

Utz Potato Chips at HomeSense

The Laird & Eglinton location is selling 12 pack (each 1 oz.) bags of these, both regular flavour and assorted, for $7.99. I've never tasted this brand, but I know it's very popular on the East Coast of the U.S.

Cronuts, anyone know if anyone makes them in Canada?

They are not all iced, and they are multilayered once you cut them. Maple Bakery is in a plaza on the west side of Keele, just north of Major MacKenzie.

Cronuts, anyone know if anyone makes them in Canada?

The Cinnamon Sugar is the best seller, but I really enjoyed the Chocolate Iced & Vanilla Iced today they were worth every cent of $3.75. Great hot table at Maple Bakery too.

Ha Long Bay closing July 30

The curse of neighbourhoods like this are the rents. Ha Long Bay was a welcome addition to Eglinton West. Here's wishing Good luck to them opening up again somewhere more affordable.

McLobster

$6.79 and i had the same issue as the other Chowhounder who said the salad had to be redistributed by him/her in order to fill the roll evenly.

Real Cider in Toronto?

Dobyblue, William is no longer 100% organic; but it is still gluten free. The LCBO instructed the producer to remove the gluten free statement, I suppose to distract attention from brands that aren't.

Need Recipe for Nordic Ware Yule Log Pan

I bought one of these specialty pans at Super Centre, then discovered to my dismay that a recipe isn't included anywhere on the packaging. An internet search (including Nordic Ware's website) yielded nothing. Help!

Anyone Tried the New Ghost Pepper Burritos at Mucho Burrito?

I had ghost pepper burrito (wimpy version) with carnitas at the Leaside Village location yesterday, when burritos were 1/2 off as an opening special. As other posters found, the fig marmalade really lessens the heat. I was apprehensive ordering one of the ghost pepper offerings, but it was not too hot by any means.

Fortino's (Lawrence & Allen) for sure, as I walked by the deli section fridge containing them the other evening.

Where's the best fried chicken in the GTA ?

We had Popeye's anniversary special 8 piece box last week, and it was dreadful. Don't other places reserve the chicken backs for other purposes (e.g. making stock)?

ISO: Newfoundland Savoury

The Sobeys at Mayfield & Hurontario has a lot of Newfoundland products (and I reckon the other Brampton area Sobeys do as well).

In search of Lyle's Golden Syrup

I found it yesterday at Pusateri's Bayview Village (250ml jar for $3.99). Otherwise, it is o/s or delisted everywhere I've looked.

In search of Lyle's Golden Syrup

It's apparently gone from Loblaws, Metro, and Sobeys. Supercentre Don Mills had a shelf tag this aft., but no stock. I will try good ol' Highland Farms (and yes, I know we've had the jars rather than tins here). Thanks for the suggestions.
