Best Cheese Plate?

  • l

I tried the one at Auberge du Pommier and it was delicious. This was a few years back and I was wondering where else in toronto would offer an assorted cheese plate in lieu of dessert.

  1. Thuet Bistro on King Street does an amazing Cheese plate for $17 using only Quebec Raw milk chesses. Here is their description from the website:

    "Chef’s selection of raw milk cheeses aged by “Cheese Boutique”, homemade walnut bread, pear, sun dried fruits and grapes "

    1. Ultra Supper Club.

      I never liked cheese plates until I ate there a year ago. Since then, my cholesterol has shot through the roof...
      They served:
      Cumin rolled Goat Cheese...made in House
      Brie de Meaux
      Bleu Geai (I disliked blue cheese before this)
      Two names that escape me for their 9yr Cheddar, and Toscano

        I disliked blue cheese until I tried it with port; the combination was made in heaven!

      2. Barberians Steakhouse has an excellent, ever-changing a la carte cheese menu.

        You can get three cheeses with appropriate condiments and breads provided, for $14, if I remember correctly.

        What is also cool is that they actually serve it on a very nice wooden board, very medieval.

        1. I forgot, Biff's also has an amazing cheese cart, and their sommelier knows as much about it as he does the wine list.

          1. Amuse-Bouche is perfect.
            96 Tecumseth St. (North off King West of Bathurst)

            1. I too found the cheese cart at Biff's excellent - I have not tried it since Steve, the cheese sommelier, left but let's hope the quality has been maintained. I have also enjoyed the cheese plate at Pangaea.

              1. Jamie Kennedy's Wine Bar has an excellent selection - emphasis on local, artisian cheeses - and of course great wine to match.

                  I second the rec on JKWB - really interesting selection of lesser known and delicious cheeses.
