Diners and Dives - markham /RH preferred

There is a legendary place in Oshawa called Teddy's (sorry, a bit out of the desired zone). Truly diner style - mashed potatoes served with an ice-cream scoop kind of place. No alcohol still as far as I know. My favourtie is the club sandwich with real shaved turkey - hubby likes the veal parma with spaghetti. The fries aren't the best - that would be my only complaint. Wait can be long to get in, but they have signs along the way telling you what to expect. Once you are in, service is quick.

Wedding Review - Liuna Gardens, Cullen Gardens

We did the Estates of Sunnybrook ( and had nothing but great things to say about it. Staff was excellent, food was excellent - they really took care of us. Haven't been there in 8 years - but I am sure it is still top notch.

I will echo the Buckinham Meat Market sentiment on this board. The hubby and I do a lot of shopping there (mainly the Oshawa location), and they are excellent. Very personal, will take time to listen and make recommendations.

They also started recently carrying a nice aged Beamster cheese - the kind we usually drive into St. Lawrence Market to get - so they have won some more brownie points with us.

Fine lunching in Peterborough

I used to be a pharma sales rep and Peterborough was in my territory. I have done both Parkhill on Hunter (many times for dinner - no lunch) and 38 Degrees. In comparison to the rest of my territory, Peterborough just did not stack up gastronomically. But, I think if I had to recommend a lunch spot, I would choose 38 Degrees - they didn't try too hard to be something they weren't and the food was consistent. Good luck.

Where is the best Mexican in Toronto?

Any suggestion for good mexican in Markham? Was craving this today, but no one had any good options close to the office (404 and 407)?
