This might be a long shot... there is a restaurant in Toronto's kensington market called Jumbo Empanadas. Once I found their beef empanada recipe in a local paper. I have since lost it. Does anyone have this recipe?
Thanks!

Cheap and Dirty: Thrifty Dive Bars of the GTA

Has anyone mentioned Who's on First? on Queen East near Moss Park. As far as crack-bars go, this one comes in first in my book.

Bazela/Bazala? (moved from Ontario board)

There is an item on the menu at Ghazele, the falafel place near Bloor and Spadina. It's listed as "Bazela" and I think it's a combination of peas, potatoes and carrots in a spicy tomato sauce. I'd like to try to make it at home, but can't find the recipe anywhere. Has anyone heard of this Bazela thing?

update: I think I might have figured it out..it's spelled "bazella"

The Best Empanada of My Life

The empanada place at 9 Milvan is great. And the people working there are very nice.

I havent had the same experience in the rest of that mall. It seems that all the other food stands won't serve me. No matter what I order from the menu, they don't seem to have it.

Is it because I don't speak Spanish?

Green tea flavoured soy milk

I used to be able to find green tea soy milk in the health food store. I can't remember the brand name. It seems to have been taken off the market. Does anyone know where I could find some in Toronto?

Recipe for Korean potato salad with beef flavoring

I didnt see your postings until now.. I think what Berbere described is right. "potato slices or chunks in a dark, slightly sweet sauce". There was no mayo in it. It does sound hard to get the recipe right, but will try it anyways. thank you!

Sorry to hear about Leslie from the Goulash Party. They had the best goulash soup I've ever tasted.

Has anyone heard of Juniors? My relatives took me there for a burger 20 years ago. It was really good. I don't know where it is.

Chinese-Indian Hakka restaurant: Lin Garden

Is hakka the same as caribbean/chinese food? I've been to a buffet near York University that I think was run by people from Trinidad. They had roti shells and chinese food. It was fairly greasy but not that bad. I can't remember the name of it now.

wakame salad

Did you ever notice how that wakame salad goes bad really fast and then tastes fishy and disgusting? I've bought it pre-packaged and had it be bad already, and of course couldn't get a refund.

Yes. It was maybe 2 or 3 years ago. I think it was next to that St Christopher House on the corner. They had Sumol to drink and sardines.

wakame salad

I bought a bag of seaweed at P.A.T., but it wasn't those stems (seawood) that you're talking about. I couldnt find the stems at that store.

But anyway, there was a recipe for the seaweed salad on the bag and it was in english. It wasn't too bad, but it didn't taste like the restaurant salad.

P.A.T sells the salad in packages already made, though.

La Pupusa Loka

I second that. I tried the pupusas and tamales and they were very good. The woman behind the counter seemed surprised to see me, though. I guess they don't get a lot of walk-in customers.

There's a great roti booth in the mall on the southeast corner of Jane and Finch, next to the McDonalds. They do huge rotis.

Recipe for Korean potato salad with beef flavoring

Has anyone had a korean potato salad with a sort of beef flavouring, as though it was made with beef broth? I had it as a side dish at a korean restaurant. I'm looking for the recipe because it was so good.
