May be the 'Best Tasting' Cantonese roast duck in the GTA?!

Lol. Ok. That was a it unfair. They're still pretty good in the area. #1 for roast duck. #2 for roast pork.
My favourite in that area for roast pork is ho ho bbq.

agreed... the BBQ duck is pretty good.
but the roast pork is just 'ok' ... not as tender as i like it and the skin is abit thick ... not the layered art piece with a thin crackling that you would find at Lei Garden in Hong Kong

Tak Fu Seafood Restaurant, aka 'King of Dim Sum'!! - Do not believe in what you read!!!

I don't remember what their other stuff tastes like but their 'lau saa Bao" aka running egg yolk bun is supposed to be their famous item and I remember that being good.

Broasted Chicken

Yes ... its in the l'il italy area and its just 'ok'

when i went they couldn't answer my questions on the kobe burger that i ordered which is much more expensive. Is it canadian kobe? wagyu? aussie? japan? ground from?
"I don't know" is the reply i got to all the above.

I also tried the shrimp burger and the lamb burger ... both were just ok... nothing to go out of my way for.
i'm actually quite satisfied eating at Gilligans over Motor.

Kim Moon Bakery new management?

I went last week as well and noticed the usual lady at the front wasn't there anymore and the buns looked abit unappealing. so I left wondering whether mgmt/ownership changed.

Kinnaree Thai on Ellesmere at Pharmacy - What's good there?

i went to kinnaree about 2 months ago.
sukho thai can be inconsistent yes.. but a few of their dishes are always solid like the khao soi.. that never disappoints... same with the pad kee mao... but the pad thai, however can be overly sweet on some days.
im quite surprised that theres not ketchup in kinnaree's pad thai... it looked kinda of reddish the day i went and didn't have the hue consistent with tamarind.
my favourite uptown thai restaurant is probably Thai Basil on major mack. and despite their consistency issues... i still rank sukhothai/khao san road/sabai sabai as my top go to places.

Kinnaree Thai on Ellesmere at Pharmacy - What's good there?

while the place is good for scarborough ... i dont' think it holds a candle to the downtown real deal restaurants like sukhothai.
i found kinnaree's pad thai tastes of ketchup....
several of the dishes were ok but some lacked depth of the flavour.
i would still go back but i think i would temper my expectations that i had the first time i went.

Jacobs & Co.

Does h60 dry age their steaks?. I don't see such information on their site. It's odd seeing a "premier" steakhouse not indicating that.
