I remember reading in a NY newspaper some years ago, never to buy fish on certain days (Monday, Sunday) in New York as most shipments came in on Tuesday or Wednesday.(This was years ago, it may not apply now)
Does the same thing apply in Toronto?
Are there specific days when the majority of fish is delivered to Toronto and therefore days in the shops when the fish is most likely to be older?
I have had good luck buying fish at the Sobys at Yonge and StClair, while the Dominion at Yonge and Eglinton was truly horrible. Next on my list to try is the fish shop at Yonge and Summerhill.
