Chuang Chia Seeds

My daughter brought me some spices home from a trip to Thailand including a packet of chuang chia. I can't find anything online about them! Does anyone know what they are and/or how to use them?

Thanks!

New Indian Restaurant, Scarborough

Last weekend we dined with friends at Pavitra (4352 Kingston Rd) and the food was delicious!!

The owner is struggling a bit for buisiness, though I can't understand WHY??
The service was friendly and relatively fast, the menu is varied and every dish we had was beautifully prepared. The restaurant itself is clean, spacious and tastefully decorated.
We definitely want this restaurant to STAY....so I thought I would post here for those who love GOOD indian food.
They also deliver!!

New Indian Restaurant/ Kingston Rd. in Scarborough?

Hello,

I drove by a newly opened Indian restaurant on the North side of Kingston Road, West of Morningside but can't remember the name.
They have a huge banner up with a website address...

Does anyone know the name or has anyone tried this place? I'm hoping it will be good!

Thanks!

Fun Wedding reception.. Toronto Harbour Cruise boat?

Hello!

My new fiance and I are wracking our brains to come up with FUN and unusual wedding reception ideas.

We are both in our early 40's and this is not a first wedding for either of us. Rather than a 'blending of families', our wedding is more a celebration with our friends.

One idea we have is to have the reception on a harbour cruise boat. Has anyone been to a wedding on one of these boats? If so, what was the food like?

Any one else have any unconventional reception ideas?? :)

Thanks!!!

OMG! I'm getting married! Need a great romantic restaurant for the reception!

Wow! What great suggestions everyone! It's quite a small number for a wedding...but we still want to have that 'reception' feel...I especially liked the look of Trattoria Fieramosca (Thanks Joyce and Steve!), but will have to spend a weekend out visiting and noshing soon!

OMG! I'm getting married! Need a great romantic restaurant for the reception!

Hi there!

We are having a small wedding (25 people) next fall and are looking for a very romantic restaurant for the dinner/reception. Our guests are mostly from Toronto and in their 40's...so they are used to eating GREAT food!

We have looked at Auberge du Pommier but they are quite pricey! We are not cheap just hoping to find a few other alternatives!

Any ideas or suggestions are welcome! Thanks!

Michelangelo's Fine Italian - Closed for good?

That would be a real shame! I just LOVED their penne arrabiata! Never found another restaurant that compared!

Great Italian with a patio downtown

Hello!

I am going to be celebrating my birthday on Sept 20 by seeing Spamalot at the Cannon. Afterwards we are meeting friends.

I'd like to go to a GREAT Italian resto with an outdoor patio (smoker!) either near the theatre or between there and Union Station.

Any ideas?

Thanks!

Cheetal Indian in Scarborough?

UPDATE:

We have now ordered from Cheetal twice. Both times it has been VERY good! We have enjoyed their vindaloos, the chicken tikka masala (MY fave!), palak paneer, baingan bhurta, samosas, pakoras and pappadums.

We LOVE the food and the prices! Definitely order for home delivery! It arrives hot and the staff are friendly and helpful.

We are SO grateful to have found this gem!

Doner Kebab garlic sauce?

Hello!

I was in the UK this fall and have an unbelievable craving for a doner kebab! The one I had in Broadstairs had an AMAZING garlic sauce, but it was not Tzaziki...
Does anyone have a recipe for the turkish garlic sauce I may have had?

My tummy will thank you!

Pillsbury Refrigerated Rolled Pie Crust

Hi there!

I bought it at Dominion on Port Union Road in Scarborough...it is definitely a good and super easy substitute for a homemade crust!

Samosas to go

I agree with Ian....Mahar on Gerrard are the BEST! Plump, crispy and spicy......AND cheap!

3 for $1

I have been loyal to that restaurant for 18 years!
