Aft Kitchen and Bar - New BBQ at Queen and Broadview

I went last week for dinner. It was packed on a Tuesday night at 630 p.m
My hamburger was salty as was my french fries.
I hardly ever return food but I had too.
The waitress was really kind about it and I then ordered a caesar salad that was tasteless.

I talked to the manager who told me that it was a new chef in the kitchen and i wasnt the only one complaining about the salt.

Conclusion: I really need to go back.

Dr Laffa - Second Location Opened Today

Finally - the second location opened today. (3023 Bathurst St - Just south of Lawrence, on the east side).

They are opened from 11 am to 10 pm but they close early on Fridays and are always closed on Saturdays.

They will also be closed for Passover to call before going or to follow them on twitter or facebook for updates on their hours.

As for the space - it's take out only but there's some stools and a long counter along the window and 2 walls.
As for the food - it's beyond good.

It will be a welcome addition to the neighborhood!

Where to buy Honeycup Mustard in Toronto?

I finally found it - at Good Bye Gluten on Avenue Road.

Where are you eating on Pi Day 2012?

a bunch of foodies (we were 6), shared a few pieces of PI at Wandas Pie in the Sky. It was a great way to celebrate.

Anything good at Yonge/Sheppard?

Deep Fried Pickles ISO

Im searching for the best Deep Fried Pickles in the GTA.
So far Ive had them at Frescos Fish and chips, Caplanskys, and The Firkin on King. On Friday I will try them at Buffalo Wings (Mississauga) as well as St. Louis.
Anywhere else I should eat them?

Mr. Combo - Review

Went to Mr. Combo for my first time tonite. It was a Sunday nite and at 630 p.m this restaurant was packed to capacity (42 seats - I asked). Mr. Combo can be found on the north east corner of bathurst and sheppard and clearly it's a popular neighborhood restaurant.
I ordered a variety of Salads (babaganouj, beet, mushroom, hummus etc) and a platter that consisted of potato perogies and falafel balls.
Everything was tasty and fresh. I really cant complain.
I especially liked the babaganouj...something was in this recipe that was different than other babaganouj recipes that I have tried at other restaurants.
I will certainly be returning to try more of their menu.

Has anyone else tried this restaurant?

The Burger's Priest new location??

I dropped by this afternoon to wish them luck. The space is great (although he upped the anty with his religious beliefs).
I will go there - the minute they open at LUNCH.

About Cheese on Church

im in love with their blue cheese choc chip cookie. HEAVEN. Just the right combo of sweet and salty. Someone knows how to make a great cookie!!

Natrel Dark Chocolate Milk

Has anyone seen it on the grocery shelf? I think it's a brilliant idea.
Saw it at IGA beahes and Lady York - but Im sure it will be everywhere next week.

Visiting for the Fancy Food Show

I went to the show in NYC last year and loved it..which is why I am returning to Washington for this years show. I walked my way thru the show from 9 to 5 p.m on both days. I did not go out for dinner after the show - just drinks. Highly recommend it.

Visiting for the Fancy Food Show

oh DC chowhounders....this is PERFECT.
I will be blogging. Stay tuned.

Visiting for the Fancy Food Show

I will be in Washington July 9 -11 for the fancy food show.
Seeing as I will be eating my way thru the show - I will not have a lot of opportunity for meals. (sad but true).
However I am looking for:
-little snacks (unique foods I could only find in DC)
-a great BAR...think molecular, upscale, cocktails.
-a great bar for beer. boss is looking for a fabulous Italian Restaurant.

Staying near the convention centre. Plus I will have a car.
Many thanks for your help - in advance.
