Authentic southern BBQ spots in TO?

I had some very good pulled pork on the medium platter we ordered last week at Greenwood Smokehouse. We really like the place now, I'd eat there anytime.

Anatolian's Turkish Halal Restaurant - WOW!

No I have not been and am not sure I'd ever give it another try. Maybe someone else will check it out for you. Actually, since you have been to Turkey recently, I nominate you!

NEWLY Opened 2015 restaurants and food stores in Toronto, from July 1 -

One reason I have not been is that it had some very odd hours for the first year. It may even have opened three years back. I was sure I had posted here that I wanted to try it, but could not find any hits when I checked for a post. The menu seems to have gotten a bit bigger, there was much less that was of interest to me in the past. Here is an old review, so yes it has been open fir at least 3 years http://www.theglobeandmail.com/life/f...

Here is an article with the original menu: http://www.blogto.com/restaurants/tea...

And three of the of the earliest articles on it: http://www.spicecitytoronto.com/2012/...

Looking back at the early menu, I remember why I didn't just rush over to try it.

That's been open for at least 2 years now, I have been passing it every time I go to the Indian area.

NEWLY Closed/Changed 2015 Restaurants in Toronto, July 1 - end of the year 2015

That's hard to believe! I wonder what sort of training that person had.

I'll be waiting for them to open a BBQ place, I guess they will call it Pho Que

Simba Grill -- very 'hound worthy (long)

no, but it was packed because all the customers are waiting till sundown to eat during Ramadan

Port Dover Cheese Shop

what is the name of the cheese?

Surprisingly different food at Forget Me Not Vietnamese Restaurant

I've never seen crocodile meat on a menu in Toronto. Perhaps it's tofu croc? :-)

Have a look if St John's bakery has something that would wok for you. http://www.stjohnsbakery.com/breads/s...

The "Celtic" looks like what you want

2015 RESTAURANT Closings in Toronto? To June 30...

The listing for the restaurant mentions "Very Large Net Profit". I wonder what they do that is different from other restaurants that don't make a big profit, and why they don't want to keep doing it. That's the $1M question.

Niagara on the Lake and wineries

The wineries in the Finger Lakes region are nowhere near as good as the ones in NOTL in my opinion. When I travel to Watkins Glen which is at the south end of lake Seneca, I have tried many of the wineries and they seem to be producing wine similar to what Niagara was making in the early 70's. There was one winery that had decent wine, but it was still nothing special.

Sorry I can't help much with restaurants in the area, but this post by TorontoJo will help you http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/9830...

Morels 2015

A few maggots never hurt anyone. Actually they are in the cheese known as "casu marzu" which you can read about at the link I provided, along with some even more interesting delicacies http://www.simonseeks.com/blog/world%...

Old School

Maybe this place should be called "Burning Schoolhouse" :-)

Eulalie's Corner Store, Gerrard and Coxwell

I remember Narula's and ate there about three times, but it was quite run down and I just never had the feeling while eating there that I had to come back soon.

Eulalie's Corner Store, Gerrard and Coxwell

I can't remember any place like the one you mention, do you remember roughly where it was?

Temaki Express on Danforth

That's too bad, some of the pics of their FB page looked quite good. So I would just look at the pics and sniff them, like some guy that is no longer posting here would do with the bistrot92 pics.

Sushi party trays and bento boxes

Here is another option but I see that it is much farther away than Zen or J-town from where you live. I ate at the Newmarket location once about 4 years ago and it was good.
They seem to have everything you mentioned.

Table 17...recent experiences?

Well the very recent article I mentioned makes no mention of that. Maybe they are moving to "North Toronto" :-)

Mahar Restaurant (Indian) on Gerrard

Mrs fD mentioned that she really liked the samosas and I liked them also. It was probably the combination of splitting 1.5 samosa each and then eating the thali that created some leftovers. I'm sure some people would eat it all by themselves but I'm being very careful with the amount I eat. I am just mentioning this as I don't clarify any impression I may have given that the thali plate is always going to be big enough for two with extra left over.

Mahar Restaurant (Indian) on Gerrard

We were out of town today and arrived back around 7:30, so I made a detour and picked up 3 samosas and a non-vegetarian thali all for $9. Mrs fD and myself split that and had food left over! The samosas are very good, we both enjoyed them. I like places where 2 can dine for $9 and there is still food left over. I'm going back.

Mahar Restaurant (Indian) on Gerrard

Reviving an eight year old thread!

Last night we drove to Gerrard St to buy the last Alphonso mangos of the season. After storing them in the car, we bought some kulfi (ice cream) and walked the complete length of the main strip to see how it was changing. There are a few new stores that are not Indian restaurants, a few closed spots like "5 spices" and even an electric bike shop now open almost across from the infamous "Lahore Tikka House". At the east end of the strip on the northwest corner of Gerrard and Rhodes Ave is a natural foods store which has a sign in the window saying "Ontario grass fed beef". These days, I just don't know what sort of grass they are feeding the beef! As I passed where the previously closed Mahar restaurant was, I saw they were re-incarnated again and open! That's the good thing about being Indian, there is always a chance at another life. So I went in to only have a look as we had already had dinner, and talked to the son of the people who had run it originally. I mentioned that I saw the building for sale and asked how they opened again, he said he talked to his parents and said he wanted to give it a try by himself as he had taken a year off for parental leave. They opened on Friday. It was empty at 9:30 pm, but there was food available and it looked good to me. The menu is smallish, with either a vegetarian or meat thali available - right now they only have butter chicken and about 5 or 6 vegetarian items which all looked appetising, even after I had eaten dinner. It's all food that has been cooked an in the "hot table". They also have a full complement of all the Indian sweet items which they had before. The parents wanted to retire and are teaching the son how to make all the items. I'll try it out in a few weeks.

Any good Indian restaurants in North Toronto?

Only a clue for some people!
