Help! Visiting Toronto Mid-March

PAnhandler | Feb 28, 2007 11:19 AM

I will be in Toronto visiting friends for four days in two weeks. I would love some input on the following five topics.

1. Cheese Curds - When I was young, my grandmother brought cheese curds back from every fishing trip she took to Canada. I found some curds last time I was in town but they were "cheddary" and the opposite of squeaky. Please tell me where I can find some good curds to bring back to New York.

2. St. Lawrence Market - I will visit the St. Lawrence Market. I will eat a sandwich containing peameal bacon. Is this a good spot to buy cheese curds? Is there a better place to buy them? What else at the market is mandatory?

3. Poutine - I had poutine last time I was in town. I will not admit where I bought the poutine. It appears that a good place to get poutine is the blue chip truck. Yes? No? (curds mandatory)

4. What the? - What is sushi pizza?

5. Other - I live with a Canadian and have an regular supply of "strangely" flavored potato chips and exotic Canadian candies. Is there anything I haven't mentioned that I must have during my short stay?

Thanks so much.
