I've moved to Don Mills & Lawrence and I can't find anything OR For Wylie1

I went through it when I moved from Cabbage/Corktown to East York. I understand. I'll have to give this some more thought. For now I'd say give Valley Fields a shot at providing breakfast. Skip dinner there until they gain your confidence. Try Congee Queen for Chinese. Beau and I are regulars at High Street Fish & Chips. Get a side of gravy for the fries if you don't like typical British style fries. You're kinda beat on good Italian, burgers, and don't get me started on the state of pizza out here. You'll have to return to the old hood for those. You're now closer to Zen for Japanese which, when compared to Hashimoto right by you, is downright affordable. It may not compare to Jerusalem's in selection or decor (they're really casual out here. I mean really, REALLY casual) but Armenian Kitchen may satisfy your kebab cravings. There are a million Middle Eastern places along Lawrence starting at Victoria Park, but this one is my sit-down go-to. Stay on the Lawrence bus for seafood at Diana's Oyster Bar & Grill. If you're there for lunch, you can go home with their fresh offerings at their store right next door. There's a good, if unlicensed, Churrasco on Eglinton at Bermondsey called Portugril, but that may be further than the cuisine merits unless you're a huge fan. Oddly, one of the best steaks I've had in a while comes from a little place on Ellesmere just west of Warden called Blackhorn Dining Room. Very 1970's old school and nothing wrong with that at all. Here's another place that, if you go for lunch, you can grab groceries at the Greek butcher next door called kostas Meat Market.

I'll think some more about it, but this should get you started and hopefully others will help. I know I posted for help weeks before I moved. The Hounds really helped a great deal.
