RIP Scott Hunter - Grinder Coffee Shop / House on Parliament

That's really unfortunate - and to think my wife keeps saying she wants to go to Kentucky again to watch some equestrian events!

At least those three are off the streets for awhile.

Anyone know where to buy Kaffir lime tree in GTA?

Have you tried this place?

Zen News

I have never been to Zen because it's very inconvenient for me although I've wanted to eat there for years. I am up in that same plaza than Zen is moving to about once or twice a month during the summer, so hope to be having lunch there at least a few times by July. I've seen a lot of work going on inside and had thought it may be open soon.

Temaki Express on Danforth

When I dropped in and talked to the owner last summer, she said that what they had was quite unique and I think she said it was a style they have in Brazil. Did you find that it was different from anything offered in Toronto?

Anyone know if this place is still open? It seems to have secret hours - nothing posted on the website and "customer not available" when I called the listed number. I guess I won't be trying it out today.

Temaki Express on Danforth

Lots of places don't get Chowhound reviews and that does not mean they aren't good. Why not be the first to give us the scoop? That's what reporters like to do! As an example, Tilde taco is quite good and Sher-E-Punjab is turning out some great food but you will have a hard time finding a review of those two places here.

7 Dim Sum Danforth

We went about 10 days back but I've been so busy that I didn't post here, but meant to. The food was good and we had the xlb, eggplant appetiser which we really enjoyed, and some other dish which was good but I forget now.

Worth a visit, and the owner is very friendly.

restaurants that don't take reservations, that will seat you before the rest of your party has arrived

You should have asked for a Thai place that meets that criteria

" Concession Road " now open! - Any one tried it yet?!

Chrales, you can find the menu on the website, if you haven't already.

Any Licks left in the GTA?

When did you first go to Lick's? For me, it was around 1981 - I used to take my car to a garage on Queen near Silverbirch and would often go over to Lick's as it was a great burger back then. I remember that even in 1987, it was still very good. What Lick's was selling back then could compete with almost anything being sold now, but what Lick's actually sells now is garbage compared to 30 years ago!

Here is something I found when looking around:

Any Licks left in the GTA?

I wonder why it's not listed on the website

Any Licks left in the GTA?

Why not call "head" office or call the locations still listed on the website? http://www.lickshomeburgers.com/index...

And it appears the website has been updated as the store you mention is not listed.

Any indian buffets actually worthwhile?

Have you tried Gautama which is at Gerrard and Hiawatha? I haven't been there since last summer, but it was not in a "race to the bottom" the last few times I ate there.

Official Alphonso Mangos 2015 discussion

I rarely see decent Alphonso mangos at Iqbal, but will go have a look this week. I just ate another 2 this morning, the taste is not really intense but is still good.

Official Alphonso Mangos 2015 discussion

Since it's 2015, time for a new thread!

I bought a box of "jumbo" Alphonso mangos from Kohinoor on Saturday, and we ate a few on Sunday evening. The size is not much different from previous years so don't be surprised at the misleading description on the box. Alphonsos are on the small side, but the ones I got are no bigger than what we usually see. They taste quite good, and were very juicy, in the way that a good peach can be juicy. I expect we will see bigger and even better tasting ones later in the season, and the prices usually drop a bit. This box of 12 small mangos was $34

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

All the Boston Pizza places are not chow destinations - my wife and I would rather starve than eat there after trying it a few times with others.

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

good, I doubt anyone will miss a Boston Pizza

Blood orange juice?

Squeeze some blood oranges, but the season is just about over.

7 Dim Sum Danforth

If price is not an issue, which one has the better food?

7 Dim Sum Danforth

So it sounds like you are saying that 7 Dim sum is really good? If so, I'll have to try it, but maybe I'll wait for Charles Yu to report on it! It seems like a bit of an anomaly that it's on Danforth Ave. but that's good for us.

I was looking for a menu or website and didn't find one, but did find a review with some pictures: http://mylifeofwanders.com/2015/04/08...

7 Dim Sum Danforth

You must live in the neighborhood, did you get a chance to try Tilde Taco yet? It's just a bit east of Pape and they have some nice tacos.

Sri Lankan in Toronto/Scarborough

Matt probably liked "Hopper Hut" because that style of food was new to him. It had it's 15 minutes of fame about 10 or 15 years ago.

I want to try Dindigul Thalappakattu Biriyani after reading about it here and then seeing a review in the Globe and Mail. Here it is:

PC Black Label Margarita Mix

I don't think it has been discontinued as it is still on the PC website.

http://www.presidentschoice.ca/en_CA/...

Why not call the number they provide on the site and ask where to find it near you?

Cole Slaw

Do you know where to look? It's just to the right of the south west corner of the store where the bread is.

Cole Slaw

Are you looking for something like the picture above? I've seen that at the NO FRILLS on Carlaw Ave.

Rude treatment at Khao San Road

They way you wrote your post, it would appear that they may no longer be around - is that the case?

Did Daiter's close early?

I appears you answered your own question, you told us what the VM said. They probably sold out of all stock, so no point in staying open to say hello to people that shop there once year!

Back of House - Leslieville

It never seems to be open when we drive by. Mrs fD just pointed that out again a few days ago. Are they still open?

Tich? Anyone been?
