I am relatively new to the area and I am an enthusiastic home cook, looking all the time to improve my skills and the quality of the food I make. I am really happy to have found this board. Getting to Toronto on a regular basis is not a good option for me at the moment.
My question is: Where in the K/W area are the best places to purchase quality food products? Gourmet items, decent loose-leaf tea, ethnic grocery stores? Anything along those lines. I have managed to find a couple of half way decent Indian stores, but so far nothing in the way of Chinese/Japanese or Mexican. Help?
