A surprisingly disappointing Haagen Dazs Product!!

I don't think their gelato line is very strong. I was very excited to try the pistachio gelato and found it pasty and also overly sweet. Stick to the simple ice cream flavours.

The Old Toronto Restaurants you make the wishes for the comeback

I miss Lime Rickeys not so much for the food but for the atmosphere. Shout outs to Chi Chi's and Viva Zapata's too.

Recommendations at St Lawrence market

Haven't been in like a decade but I always liked the churrasco chicken with hot sauce and fries.

Kelseys...what to order?

By no means, am I a fan of chain restaurants but I can vouch for at least a couple of American chains such as Dave's Famous BBQ and Chili's (can't vouch for its only Ontario location though)

Thanks but chances of me going downtown for that is slim. The Red Baron deep dish were very good though.

Cross-Border Grocery Shopping

I just came back from Buffalo a couple of weeks ago and brought quite a bit back from there. I usually bring a cooler and fill it with ice after I buy my frozen foods e.g pizza, ice cream etc. Since it was rather hot, sometimes you run the risk of the ice cream melting but I have been very fortunate not to have anything melt on me as of yet. On my recent trip, I brought back Haagen Dazs Peanut Butter Pie Ice cream, Mango ice cream and their Pistacio ice cream too. I highly recommend the Mango, it was delightful. I also brought back a couple of small pepperoni deep dish pizzas from Red Baron. I brought back some Tahitian Treat cases and Loganberry carbonated sodas. I really love Snapple Apple so I bought ten small glass bottles of those, lucky only a buck each with my Tops card;) I also bought my sour ice pops from blue bunny, pretty impossible to find. Only Walmart in Niagara Falls carried it. I was disappointed in my chips selections but I will say that the TGIF's potato skins were awesome. I would get those again.

Donut Shop Coconut Mocha Coffee for Keurig

I doubt you will find it in the GTA to be honest with you. I picked up the same kcups in Buffalo too lol along with my favourite apple cider at Tops.

Good eats near Westin Grand Central Hotel

Thanks for all your suggestions on your great city. I guess a lot of the places I tried were more in Brooklyn than in Manhattan so I hope I don't get in trouble for posting on this board. I didn't care much for the Pearl Oyster Bar but it was a convenient lunch for us and it was on our first day there. Loved Grimaldi's in Brooklyn, the pizza in NY just blew my mind to be honest. I tried a pizza chain a few times called Bravo and even that was incredible. Toronto, Ontario Canada where I am from has god awful pizza, I don't quite get why we can't at least try to replicate the type of pizza offered in NYC or Chicago. We went to three steakhouses on our visit, Keens, Capital Grille and Peter Luger's. What I love about all three were that there was no dress code even though they were all pretty upscale steak houses. Highlights of Keens were the scotch, service and the hot fudge sundae. For Peter Luger's, loved the thick sliced bacon and the hot fudge sundae, definitely the best I have ever had and slightly better than Keen's offering. Capital Grille was near our hotel but it was very good too. Loved the setting and atmosphere, the caesar salad was the best I have ever eaten and they had a great clam chowder too. Very expensive though but we knew that going in. I will say I was disappointed with Junior's cheesecake, I thought it was too dense and creamy. I like my cheesecakes light and with a graham crust. That being said it was still good but imho nothing special. Overall, a very nice culinary experience. I really enjoyed my time there visiting the Empire State Building, 911 memorial such beautiful pools in honour of the victims, really took my breath away. The view of the pier in Brooklyn along with a river tour to see the sites including the Statue of Liberty. Times Square was also awesome especially at night, how it lit up the city. What a site to see! One thing I wasn't ready for was how much walking I would do lol. Just proved to me how poor shape I am in;) Thanks for all the suggestions on possible food options!

Well done Justsayn. I guess I deserved a taste of my own medicine this time;)

Moo Milk Bar, Beaches, Toronto: Anyone been?

I loved their banana milk. I thought it would taste artificial but it was really good! Must try the others!

Momofuko Milk Bar

Spot on BokChoi! The shake I had reminded me of fruity pebbles in milk. I would go back for that occasionally but not for the "crack" pie lol.

Momofuko Milk Bar

Yes, it is very similar to a butter tart but more like a thin pie and more eggy.

Momofuko Milk Bar

I was in NY about a week ago and visited this place. Tiny space, packed full of young people looking to get their crack pie fix. I tried the fruity cereal milkshake which was very good and the crack pie which I thought was a rip off for $5, tiny slice that tasted like sweet butter. If this place is not going to sell ice cream and milkshakes, I won't be going there personally.

I was also impressed with I Went To Philly, best cheesesteak I have had, of course I've never been to Philadelphia before.

Kawartha Dairy ice cream is made with disgusting ingredients now

Well we do have a choice and unfortunately it seems the average Canadian makes the wrong one lol. I have a few friends that buy that blue parlour Breyers solely because it is on special at Shoppers Drug Mart, I always tell them I would rather eat chalk than consume that garbage. Very disappointing that Breyers discontinued their natural line here in Canada, I used to love their Natural Vanilla with real specks of vanilla bean. Now I won't touch any other vanilla ice cream but Haagen Dazs.

Why buy anything other than Haagen Dazs? If you look hard enough, it's on special somewhere. Lets not get started on Breyers, they really piss me off because they sell their natural line only in the States and claim there is no market or demand for it in Canada! What a load of crap!

Good eats near Westin Grand Central Hotel

Thanks. I will definitely try the cheesecake from Junior's. I think I will give The Oyster Bar a try to especially since I saw they sell fried oysters, something I can't get back home. Pretty limited on quality food choices considering where I am staying but thanks for pointing out a few that I may like.

Good eats near Westin Grand Central Hotel

Hi Kathryn. Thank you so much for your response, it was very helpful. To answer your question, we are likely to take in a baseball game at Yankee Stadium, go to a few museums, visit Time Square, stroll through Central Park. I am not sure if there are any must do's while I am here, do you have any recommendations? For dining destinations, we were planning to visit Keen's, Peter Luger's, Gray Papaya's and Lucali's. I would like to try some seafood places as in Toronto, Ontario we are seriously lacking in the quality of seafood. I really enjoy fried clams so I am hoping that there will be a few places I can find that offer that. Oh yes, I also want to go to Shake Shack as I have heard good things. I likely will avoid chinese food as we have some strong restaurants back home and quite frankly sometimes feels like the only type of cuisine I frequent lately lol. I want to try some good cheesecake and I know that Junior's is located in Grand Central Terminal so that is great! We are going to be in NYC from Monday July 8th to the following Monday July 15th. Is Katz deli worth going if I am not much of a deli guy or should I go more for the experience? I love pudding so I will try Puddin, I have had it before as my sister brought some back on her last trip. I love paella, in fact it is my favourite dish of all time but can anyone in NY duplicate what I had in Spain, likely not lol. If you want to chime in on my choices, feel free and thanks again for your analysis.

Hi New Yorkers. I was hoping to get some help on some good eats near my hotel. I am looking for great cheesecake, pizza, deli, wings and even a nice steakhouse. If nothing special is nearby, can you recommend the best NY has to offer food wise? Thanks in advance.

Goulash House Newmarket

Great place. I went a while ago and meant to report back. The goulash soup was fantastic, hearty beef broth along with tender beef and vegetables. The chicken paprikash was good too, tender pieces of chicken in a delicate paprika cream sauce along with nice dumplings. Didn't get dessert as the Maids Cottage is next door;) Service was fantastic so in summary, I will definitely be back!
