Looking for a Chinese reception venue in GTA

Hi there! You had asked about the Mandarin Golf and Country Club located in Markham.
I held my wedding there this past fall. Although the wedding was a postive experience for the most part, the treatment afterwards runined it!
Here is a thread on this topic that I had started. I found 2 other couples in the same boat as me. It's a bit of a long story, so I'm just going to add the link instead (I hope this is okay, if not please feel free to ask me to edit, I'm just not up to typing too much tonite)

We all wonder if there aren't more people also still owed their $2000.00 deposit from The Mandarin Golf and Country Club?

Pillsbury Refrigerated Rolled Pie Crust

I bought this yesterday at the Super Walmart in Stouffville (on Hwy 48, just North of the town of Markham) Havn't tried it yet though.

German Wedding Cake?

A friend is looking for a German style wedding cake (at hubby-to-be's request)
She's in the GTA, but the cake would travel to Huntville for the wedding.
Any ideas? I'll be recommending Baumkuchen, though I havn't tried this company myself:

BTW- She's not looking for a super fancy cake but a fabulous traditional German cake!
Thanks for any help you can provide us with.

Looking for Lithuanian Food in GTA

What about a non Lithuanian restaurant that serves similar foods like Kugelis, Cepelini, Perogis, Beet soup, etc?
Also FYI for anyone interested in cooking Lithuanian, I like these sites...

Looking for smoked eel

Thanks for even more ideas...everything was closed yesterday. I'll be in the Scarborough area today, will check out the Danish bakery/deli. I am annoyed with the Milbree-Viking smoke house...I checked there about 3 weeks ago, I showed up in person and asked if she had smoked Eel she just said No...would have been nice if she had told me it was out of stock. If they do carry it, I'll be complaining about that! Milbree-Viking did have beautiful smoked fish and the Lox was great...oily and not salty! Yum! Can't wait to surprise pops! Thanks everyone!

Looking for smoked eel

Wow, thanks so much everyone for all the ideas. Will likely be checking out the Moscow Warsaw Kiev Deli oday. Also was told that the Roncesvalles Bakery also has smoked eel! Can't wait to surprise my dad! Thanks so much!

Looking for smoked eel

Hi! I've been searching for smoked eel for my 85 year old Lithuanian father for a few years now and have had no success. I've had him try Asian style eel, but it is far too sweet for his tastes (though I love it!) I think what he wants is Baltic style. Fresh would be prefferd, but I'm willing to give anything a try!
If anyone knows where I might be able to purchse some in the GTA or surronding area (I'd even be willing to make a road trip a few hours away if necessary) We also frequent Niagara Falls and Buffalo every few months.
Thanks in advance for any leads!
