Toronto Hound Coming For 2 Weeks

radiopolitic | May 4, 2012 12:14 AM

Hey there fellow Chowhounders. I'm coming to Boston on May 5th for over 2 weeks. Will have tons of free time and plan on eating a lot.

Looking mainly for things that aren't common or readily available in Toronto and I tend to gravitate towards ethnic and offal but am open to all suggestions. I've spent a fair bit of time pouring over threads here and have come up with a rough list and would appreciate any comments and/or additions.

Cocktails:
Drink
Backbar
Green Street
Gallows

Beer:
The Publick House
Sunset Grill
Deep Ellum
Lord Hobo
Redbones
Cambridge Brewing Company

Food:
Coppa
Butcher Shop (seems to get mixed reviews - could someone comment further?)
Orinoco
Toro
Estragon
Teranga
Craigie's on Main
Island Creek Oyster Bar
Strip T's
Uni (for ramen and/or sakebomb 4 course meal)
Pizzeria Regina (in North End)
Thmor Da
YoMa
Giacomo's
Umberto Galleria
Rino's Place
Eastern Standard Kitchen

There seems to be a plethora of Latin options that I'm interested in exploring - if someone could comment/add to/refine these selections it would be greatly appreciated:
La Reina Cafeteria or Mi Pueblito for pupusas
Angela's Cafe
Rincon Limeno
For taco's:
Dorado
La Verdad
Taqueria Jalisco
Taqueria El Amigo

Bakery/Pastry:
Mike's
Modern
La Sultana
South End Buttery
Sofra(worth it?)

Coffee:
Barismo
Taste
Simon's
Sip

Purveyor's:
Russo's
Salumeria Italiana
Tropical Foods
Formaggio Kitchen
If someone could recommend a good Middle Eastern grocer I would appreciate it. I am cooking for family members and need to find some ingredients.

If you feel I've missed something important please add!
Thanks in advance! :)
