  1. Off to Dunster for a few days... any updates to this thread? We're looking less for "fancy" than for good, plain hearty. Thanks.

    Recommendations for Toulouse

    Off to explore the countryside `round Toulouse in early April. Any ideas for charming B&Bs in the nearby countryside would be much appreciated.
  6. No good Mexican restaurants here. What wouldn't I give for something along the lines of a Frontera Grill...?!
  7. Has anyone been to King's Garden lately? It is well- reviewed by Toronto Life but I have no idea how long ago: http://www.torontolife.com/guide/restauran...-garden/review/

    Toronto Food Scene 2008

    I'd like one - just gimme one! - decent Mexican place in this city!
  9. Wondering if there are any updates on good places to get Dim Sum in Toronto? There hasn't been input on this subject for months and months. I'd like to head to the AGO (art gallery) then stop somewhere in the 'hood for mid-priced dim sum afterwards. Thx.
  10. Bump! I'm off to Negril for a week. First few days paying for an all-inclusive resort so we'll eat there. But for the 4 days after that, we're looking for suggestions. I've heard there's fantastic lobster to be had... but where's best? Curried goat is said to be wonderful in jamaica, but where should I eat it? thanks for any and all thoughts you can share with us!
  11. Anyone been to 'gusto lately? Still worth checking out? Or, past it's prime?

    A Tasting of Okanagan Valley Wines

    Ugh, Keith. I enjoyed your description of the tasting but too bad you ruined it for me with your political musings.

    Asparagus and Muscat Sec?

    Funny. Didn't get this message before I left, but did decide to take both bottles. I read in "The Wine Bible" that Muscat Sec is drunk a lot in Alsace with asparagus, so I took this bottle from Pays D'Oc from Chateau Stony. It was delicious! But, with the shrimp and asparagus risotto, my friend and I both preferred the Australian Semillon-Sauvignon blend. I didn't like the Australian as much on its own, but it didn't overpower the flavours of the shrimp and risotto while Muscat added a lot of fruity zing which was delicious but added a bit too much. Anyway. There you have it. A novice's view of 2 wines with a good meal. Thanks for your thoughts! - Freckles
