Via Mercanti Pizza - best in Toronto? Really?

Good to hear. I've tried the Danforth location 3 times since they opened and was not sure what all the hype is about. Since they are a 3 minute walk away, it would be nice if I actually liked their pizza.

Sher-e-Punjab on Danforth - anyone?

I didn't ask about it being specially made, but didn't get the feeling they would when I asked if it will be available in the future. I just made pork vindaloo with 3.5 kgs of pork today, so it does not really matter to me if they have it or not.

Tomatillos around Riverdale/Leslieville area

A few vendors at the Withrow Park market have them, I bought 3 small baskets last week and made a lot of salsa. By weight it was around 2.5 kgs of tomatillos then I bought for $9 from the Danbrie Farms guy, but he was not there this weekend. http://www.danbriefarms.com/index.php

Kobo Nobu (Broadview / Danforth) - who's been?

There's always next time for a meat course. After seeing the pictures, I want to try it out. It's only a minute away from where we often eat, but they don't have a happy hours like Globe Bistro does.

Sher-e-Punjab on Danforth - anyone?

I just called Sher-E-Punjab an asked about pork vindaloo. They said they had it about 4 months ago but now it is off the menu and they have no plans to offer it again as he says "people like beef more"

If anyone is interested, maybe we can try to determine when the best time for a dinner is. Maybe in about 2 or 3 weeks?

Quince vs. Coquine at Yonge/Eg

I was asking as I wanted to hear other peoples opinions of the food at Quince. My wife and I had suggested it for a dinner with three friends, and we at there about 2 months back. Let's just say it was completely forgettable! (but obviously it is still in my mind for some reason :-)

Sher-e-Punjab on Danforth - anyone?

I was thinking that I wouldn't mind meeting some of you there but I'm not a fan of the sort of vindaloos that you will find in a restaurant. I recall having some items at Sher-E-Punjab in the 80's that were much hotter than I like and I suspect vindaloo will fall into that category also. But if anyone is interested to meet there, I'd be available for that. I can call and ask if they can make one.

Why would anyone line up for hours to get any burger at all?

Sher-e-Punjab on Danforth - anyone?

The recipe I use is like the first or second, and I use either cider or palm vinegar. I'm not Goan or Anglo-Indian. I'm "East Indian", and our food is very different from the other two.

Sher-e-Punjab on Danforth - anyone?

True, it is all different. The type that you would get in Goa is usually quite hot, whereas the families in the area I am from (Bandra http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bandra ) make a very different version. It's one dish where you need meat which has some fat, or it doesn't turn out properly.

Sher-e-Punjab on Danforth - anyone?

Pork vindaloo is the original vindaloo. If you eat vindaloo in Goa or at the home of a Christian family elsewhere, it is not made with chicken, lamb, or beef. I was also wondering about Sher-E-Punjab recently as I ate there often 30 years back but stopped going in the early 90's. I did eat there about 3 years ago and it was pretty good. One reason we haven;t been is I need to round up some other people to go with so we can order a few dishes. I'm hoping to eat there in the next month.

Warlock: I don't know if the reason they don't have pork vindaloo has anythng to do with demographics as most customers at the restaurant are not of Indian/Asian ancestry.

I will be making pork vindaloo to take to a dinner in a few weeks!

Hakka - On Roncesvalles!!!

It may have some dishes with Hakka names, but it's not a Hakka restaurant. It just has a bit of food from various areas of India and Sri Lanka, plus what appears to be Thai and Malaysian food.

Simone's Caribbean Restaurant, 596 Danforth Ave

Order takeout like I do. I pick up the food 20 minutes after ordering, even on Fridays.

Chinatown East, Broadview and Gerrard: quality?

Perhaps BIGEater100's pizza was made with older oil than yours? I've been wanting to try this place out, but I try to avoid most fried food. I almost went in the firt week, than my interest in a fried pizza dough seemed to wane.

I was at No Frills last night and they had packs of 4 smallish lobster tails for $8.99, I assume that is the type you are referring to? I'll have to try those in the soup soon.

Recently I found frozen Madagascar mangrove crab pieces at No Frills. ($10 for a 1kg bag) Maybe I'll try those in there for a change.

I'm just curious what sort of arrangement you think would be in place where no funds were paid? I need some friends like that. Most people know not to make "arrangements" with friends, they quickly won't be your friends. Actually as I read what you just said plus what you posted yesterday, it seems like you are making a lot of assumptions.

$1.99 lobster tails? I guess I am shopping at the wrong stores. I was expecting to read what wine you drink with this. I suppose a an Alsatian Gewurztraminer or a Late Harvest Riesling? :-)

The lobster balls I bought at T&T yesterday worked very well.

I didn't have time for the hard boiled egg. I forgot to mention, I also chopped up and added some "spicy fried tofu". I don't know if that would be traditional, but I added it and I like it with the tofu.

After having them plain the first time only, I also don't eat it that way any more. Yesterday I added also added lobster flavoured balls, lime leaf, snow peas and a small amout of coriander leaves.

How did you prepare them? I have bought them, but find they are not all that exciting if you don't add all the items that Charles did in his picture. When you add fish balls, shrimp, bean sprouts, and a few other items it is very good. I had it that way yesterday.

bgm,

Can you clarify what you just said? It sounds like the new owners bought the building from Angelo's family and there is no lease or rent to be paid? Somehow I doubt that. Most people don't buy a commercial property for $750K or more and just pull the full amount out of their wazoo to pay for it with no mortgage.

The Old Toronto Restaurants you make the wishes for the comeback

Yes, I went to that location also.

Danforth Pizza House for sale

It needs a new title, but I don't think it ever closed. It has just had different people running it over the last year.

Kobo Nobu (Broadview / Danforth) - who's been?

Just go and you can write the review!

Did you look at the menu? You can find it here: http://kobonobu.com/

We just walked past it on our evening after-dinner walk.

Since they have a Japanese chef, I'll have to try it out one day. It has favourable reviews on the other restaurant rating boards.

Toronto’s Best Butter Tarts Aren’t in Toronto

Every time I see this thread pop up I think :
How can they be Toronto's best if they aren't in Toronto? And how is a thread with that title still alive 8 years later? Kwass: maybe it's time to start a new one called "The 2014 Butter tarts discussion"

I have been seeing some butter tarts at Masellis Supermarket that look good, I'll have to go buy a package. They are right by the cashier.

What is the worst item you bought at the LCBO in 2014?

I'm thinking of buying some of the other "bad" items mention in this thread to see which is the worst. I'll invite some friends over and do a taste test and vote on the worst. I wonder how some of these products ever made it to the market.

What is the worst item you bought at the LCBO in 2014?

Hi betsy,

I haven't tried the products that the others have mentioned, but I highly doubt they are anywhere near as bad as the Radler! I really have to wonder what the people at the LCBO were thinking when they decided to stock this one.

What is the worst item you bought at the LCBO in 2014?

Did you drink it on it's own or mixed it? I'd think it would be better in a caesar or marguerita.

There are some recipes that look interesting here, but I guess it's too late for you to try them now.
