Best Indian in Toronto - where is it?

Lahore Tikka House on Gerrard, it's blunt and greasy. In my experience, most Indian places have spruced up their offerings to appeal to more sophisticated palettes. Lahore Tikka sure hasn't, which is why I think it outclasses the competition. It also gets points for atmosphere.

Coffee in Paris

Any suggestions for excellent and affordable coffee in Paris, preferably around the 6th? After seven weeks, I've found most cafe coffee passable but no where near excellent. I'm sure that some of the grand cafes (Cafe de Flore, La Rotonde etc) make great coffee, but I'm looking for a more affordable, every day kind of place.

Many thanks for any thoughts!

Aboriginal Food in Toronto

Are there any Toronto restaurants that serve North American aboriginal food? I'm not sure what such food is, but I'm interested.

Beijing Dish in Toronto

Anyone know where I might find Disanxian (地三鲜) in Toronto? I had quite a lot of it in Beijing, though I didn't see it in southern China. Although the ingredients changed from place to place, it usually involved potatoes/tofu, green peppers, and eggplant in a thick, syrup-like sauce.

I'd be happy with anything, dives or something upscale.

Thanks for any help.

Best Bakery in Toronto

Zane's, beside Konditor at Queen and Woodbine, is often overlooked. I judge their croissants a chunk better than Clafouti, and their danishes, made with custard, are incredible.
