Good to know!!
I keep meaning to check this place out, looks delish.
All their tables were reserved tonight, nice to see them doing well! Nice peeps.
Sushi Maido is one of my favourite places for sushi in the Annex.
This place looks amazing!!
The Heavenly Perogy has some special pick-up options for Orthodox Easter. Order online before the 10th, pick up the following week.
Well, we’re not sure what to call this place. The sign says Bombay Frankies, but the website corresponding to this name does not have the same menu. The website for Bombay Frankie has the correct menu, although they also call the restaurant Mumbai Frankie on the website. Anyway, we took out from the place on 1386 Gerrard St. E. They let us use our own containers.
Szechuan Paneer Frankie - minimum 2 - very fun - spicy paneer cubes, onion, green pepper, chutney, sauces, wrapped in a flatbread.
Afghani momos (not on the online menu) - 7 green momos with pureed vegs inside, a little layer of creamy sauce, with white cabbage over - very tasty.
Vegetable Hakka noodle - very soft chow mein noodles in a reddish sauce, decent kick, with cabbage, red pepper, and ginger - pleasant, though not quiet as interesting.
Muffuletta, Pork Schnitzel and Shrimp Calamari Po Boy from Brock Sandwich. I like the the Muffuletta and Pork Schnitzel better than the PoBoy.
Good paprika fries.
I will be back. I want to try their burger and breakfast sandwich.
I tried the Minute Steak Pita ($19) and the Bonsai broccoli (broccoli with a dill scallion dairy sauce) ($11) at Miznon. It was ready in 12 minutes. Maybe a little pricey, and the steak was a little fatty, but I enjoyed it.
First time trying it, and not too interested in chicken lately. https://www.miznon.ca/
Sang Ji Bao, 3 Charles St location
Vanilla flan, iced latte and Yuzu iced tea at Le Genie at Aura, south of College Park
French Butter at Le Genie
Selection of pastries at Le Genie
I’ve been meaning to try it: will have to get there soon!
Last night was kibo secret garden again. The Anago was really good. It paired nicely with Nama Nama unpasteurized version (also delivered by UberEATS)
Bento from Tsuchi
Would get it again.
Not sure about the iced oat milk miso caramel macchiato . I have tried around 2 dozen oat milk lattes over the past 5 years . I just don’t like nut milks or oat mills in coffee.
Also tried the hot table at Alimentari on Roncesvalles. No photo. I had eggplant parm ($2.99/ 100g), a $4 meatball and some fried artichokes. It was good.
I had the Parmesan tapioca fritters ($14 - enough for 2 people) , asparagus ($17- could be enough for 2, or a generous portion for 1) and shrimp fried rice ($30- enough for 1 as a main , but small for a serving of fried rice) from Alma last night.
Street parking is really hard to find around Bloor and Dufferin these days. I ultimate found side street parking a few blocks east of Dufferin.
Everything tasted good. Portions are on the smallish side.
This order was around $61 before tax and tip. I guess this is what the cost is for upscale restaurants right now.
I haven’t really been spending more than $40 before tax and tip for myself for months, so this was a splurge!
Dinner tonight was 2 takeout squares of Middle Eastern pizza from Levant. One was Maqluba inspired and the other was a chicken pizza called Musakhan, which I like better than the Maqluba…
Just under $15 before tip for 2 squares.
I have ordered from Alma a couple of times for delivery. It is expensive for the size, but I found it quite filling. The pork wonton & noodles with pork schmaltz, with bao and smoked eggplant dip, is really very delicious and as mentioned above, filling. Same with the Char Siu and turnips.
Worth trying; again, don’t be put off by what looks like a small portion. Filling, and packed with deliciousness.
I liked the food a lot!
I just usually keep my take-out meals for one to under $40, so an $80-$100 meal for one including tax and tip, is a splurge for me!
I’ll probably order from Alma this fall.
I moved a little closer to Little Italy so I really should get around to trying Dailo!
Just opened up in my nabe, will check it out after they iron out their opening bugs.
We got a Magic Bag from 2Good2go from Levant. Underwhelmed, sorry. Well, seems they (understandably) don’t have actual leftover food but when my partner arrived baked him a small pizza (their cheapest one - garlic confit), Admittedly we got it cheap but pretty much bread with some roasted garlic on top. Am I missing something wonderful?
I don’t know. I have been twice. I liked the meat pizzas better than the fatayer pizza. I haven’t tried the shawarma pizza.
I like the crust.
I haven’t tried the 2Good2Go because I’m too much of a control freak to leave the choices to chance.
I guess don’t go out of your way for Levant. It was good enough for me to walk 15- 20 minutes from the Annex, but I walk an hour a day, so walking out of my way for 15-30 minutes for a $15 worth of pizza is something I would do typically. I think it is good place for the Bloordale neighbourhood, and for a place close to Christie Pits. I like the people running it.
I am glad you gave your feedback, I appreciate it!
With all these recommendations, it’ll be a matter of taste. It’s quite possible you won’t like the stuff I like or recommend, and that’s completely okay! It’s good to have a discussion about it. Also, you’ll find your taste buds might align more with some posters than others!
