Pretty sure in parts of Italy the pizza is already cooked and sitting depending if its a stall or a restaurant.

Scarborough Authentic Chinese

Kennedy and Eglinton is a tough area to find authentic chinese cuisine. That area is littered with predominantly hakka chinese canadian food.

" Enjoy Noodle King " - First sighting of 'Jook Sing Noodle', aka Bamboo Rod Won Ton noodles in the GTA

Hrm. I'll have to agree with your post for the most part. But I didn't try the brisket and yes the wontons were not fantastic but still ok. It wasn't terrible. The broth while smelled like fish. Taste wise I tasted more sweetness. Perhaps too much msg? I still enjoyed it with all the components together. I did see someone having the aforementioned shrimp roe and dried bonito powder lo mein and it looked pretty good.

Wonton Hut vs V2 Noodles

Charles,
Have you tried 'enjoy noodle king' at midland n finch?
Noodles are made with the bamboo stick, served with yellowed chives and the broth to me has the scent n taste of big land fish.
Wontons are dainty and just 'ok'. But I enjoyed the noodles the most. Al dente with a slight chewy texture.

I actually prefer Pizza e pazzi over Libretto and QMP.
I have yet to try VM.

Chinese food in Scarborough for out of towners

wow.. really ... when i tried fantasy eatery about 3 months ago it was pretty good. Their tung choi with fermented tofu beat maple yips IMO (i had them back to back). The only thing that dissapointed at fantasy eatery was the 2 style garoupa dishes we had, very bad value.

Fantasy eatery, Maple Yip and Lychee Bay Cuisine are all decent options for authentic cantonese style fare.

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.
