we were in toronto for christmas weekend...had some fantastic meals. thank you for all your recommendations. my husband was very impressed with the chowhound picks!
Lunch - Little India on Queen st. west - loved it. service was very friendly, delish butter chicken. my husband was so impressed he told me he wanted to go back the next day
Dinner - Blowfish - Really enjoyed the vibe and ambience. good sake. the crunchy spicy tuna was my favorite. pricey, 3 people = $215.00
more drinks - village idiot- my sister lives close to here. Very nice barternder, fun dive pub
Lunch - Little India, again. really liked the lunch buffet. tons of options
Dinner - Chung King in Markham for peking duck. the peking duck was AWESOME and the filleted fish was very very good as well. We really liked this restaurant. it's in the same plaza as Pacifac mall
Lunch - Diamond banquet hall for dim sum - good dim sum, not dirty (tablecloths!) not greasy...liked the turnip cakes the best.
Dinner - 369 shanghai dimsum - this is a family favorite and remains so. My husband loves the rice cakes with pork and mustard greens. my favorite is the soup dumplings. We also love the thick noodles and their egg dumplings.
Overall, very yummy weekend. time to pop onto my diet again!
