Best/Worst Chowhound Tips

For every joint that gets a rave on this board, you can be sure someone else will regard the very same place as a washout. Understandable. Tastes in food differ - wildly. As to which view is the correct one, who knows? I've found that for every good tip I get on this board, three others are, in my view, duds. Which to me is a pretty good batting average in the game of where to eat.
To help sort out (somewhat) these differences of opinion, however, let us each nominate the best eating tip you ever got on this board, as well as the worst. To get us started, for me the best tip I ever got was Kenzo, a Japanese ramen spot on Yonge Street south of Steeles. I'd passed it many times, but it looked so forlorn in its little strip mall that I avoided it - until some enthusiastic tipster recommended it. I've been back many times. As for the worst tip, it came from a usually reliable source, a hound who clearly knows his chow (and whose posts have tipped me to several decent spots), but this time I found nothing whatever to like at Aladdin's Palace, a middle-Eastern place in the east end - not the atmosphere, or the service, but mainly the dreary food.
Now, what are your choices for best and worst food tip you ever got on this board?
