Thanks Vanhounds for your contributions. The board has been very helpful these past few months for getting a gastronomic handle on my new home. Just wanted to throw some questions out there to see if the hive mind could help direct me to the right places. Just a note that I'm located around Commercial and rarely find myself making deep treks.

Where is a good place to get jerk marinade sauce? Not so many Caribbean grocers around and jerk-can chicken is fun to make with a can of ginger beer. Just wanted to note that the homemade jam patties at riddim&spice on commercial are wicked as are the papusas and fish tacos at Rinconcito.

Only been to Haiphong and Thai son (rip) for Viet. Neither has this sate noodle dish that I'm craving. It's served in a thick gravy stock of crushed peanuts, grilled and diced lemongrass and minced dried shrimp usually with ride noodle called hu tieu sate.

Any Sri Lankan recs? Hakka place? Chui chow place?

Curry beef brisket noodle soup (resembling Kau Kee in HK). Unavail at Congee Noodle House and too weak at Mui garden.

Only tip I have is the new Shanghai place downtown was really good :
And don't bother with the foie poutine at Wildebeest.
