Nagu Jolokia hot pepper- can I buy it inToronto

I bought Bhut Jolokia's seeds, plants and frozen peppers from Ravi (Toronto Craigslist) and the peppers were and continue to be amazing!! I have two plants that are continuously yielding peppers (right now I have about 6-10 peppers on each) no special lighting just next to a sunny window!! My peppers are super hot and super tasty.

Proud to present my Bhut Jolokia (Ghost Pepper) crop

Thank you all for your comments, I'm just soooo proud of my peppers that I can't even think of cutting them until I really have to. I actually cut a couple of them and I grilled them ( way hotter than anything I've tried) and I liked the flavour so much that once I cut them I will grill them and freeze them just like I do to my habaneros (got too many to eat them all) I actually took my plants last weekend (really warm temperatures in Toronto ) and it helped them now I can see the little peppers coming out. I love this plant it produces a lot of them and very easy to care! Now let's enjoy them!

Purslane in TO?

That is not outrageous at all ( I raided a forgotten planter in the Vaughan area three years ago ) and the purslane was yummy (crazy but worth it ) I'll keep you post it if I find it!

How can I keep the pasta from drying out?

A cook from a very busy resto (still in business) told me that they kept the "al dente" pasta in containers and added olive oil to keep it moist

Trying to grow habaneros!

I saw my first Bhut Jolokia pepper is tiny but is finally coming out!!! Congrats pine time on your habanero harvest. I still have a pepper plant without any flowers and just huge green leaves that look like nothing I've ever grown!

Best Portuguese Bakery in Toronto?

Doce minho's bread is great but the cashier's sour attitude makes me go elsewhere for my portuguese breads and desserts!

Cotija cheese

I guess this would make the drive to Mississauga worth it for me. BTW is the Oaxaca cheese any good?

Thanks!

Salsa's: new Mexican Restaurant in Kensington

I live one block away from Rebozos and I love it but when I crave Tacos al pastor I go to el Trompo. Rebozos has really nice and authentic tacos and I love the Rosca de Reyes.

Salsa's: new Mexican Restaurant in Kensington

I'm Mexican and I've eaten in a lot of the "Mexican" restaurants and I don't get it after reading all your favorable comments about this Salsas I rushed with my teenager to enjoy some great tacos and let me tell you WHAT A DISAPPOINTMENT! The double dry tortilla was horrible and crumbly ( straight from the freezer ) the "Pastor" had no taste and the tinga was somehow edible. I could not eat them and left the stablishment to eat the BETTER Al Pastor Tacos "El Trompo"
