Best beef stroganoff in Toronto?

Where is the best place for a good beef stroganoff in Toronto? I did a search on the board, but the results did not return any entries. Thanks in advance for your recommendations!

  1. For quite a long time I've had a craving for a well prepared beef stroganoff, but I could never find a place that offered it. So one day it hit me that I could ask fellow chowhounds where to find a good beef stroganoff in Toronto. It seems like the lack of recommendations confirms my earlier suspicions that beef stroganoff is nowhere to be found in Toronto's gastronomical map. It seems like I'll have to continue my search somewhere else, when I go away on vacation. I would never have guessed. :)

      tjunmin, I feel your pain. I think this fits into the category of a dish that's past its prime. Like Aspic. Personally, I've never seen it (but I don't get out as much as some).

    2. I can't suggest a restaurant that serves it since I haven't seen the real thing (a saute of rare filet mignon or a similar tender cut) in years. DO NOT try the PC prepared version from Loblaws.

      1. I believe that Corvina (Kingston Rd & Victoria Park vicinity) has beef stroganoff. I know they have stick to your ribs home cooked Hungarian food in that yummy sour cream sauce.

        1. I don't know if it's good, but Beef Stroganoff is on the menu at the Granite Brewery under Pastas & Pizzas heading.

            I tried it and it was terrible. I hardly could get through 1/2 of it even though I was starving..

          2. I'd suggest Pravda Vodka Bar (44 Wellington E). While I haven't tried their stroganoff, the ambiance is great, food is typically good...and hey, stroganoff is Russian, not Hungarian!
