TO Life 100 Tastes - what are your picks?
After leafing thru the magazine, these are on my list to try? Are there any others that you would recommend?
#5 - Carousel back bacon sandwich - tried one a long time ago - will get one again (we usually go for the veal and eggplant sandwich downstairs)
#8 - Greg's marshmallow ice cream - read about this one many times - will it be available now or is it seasonal?
#35 - Takoyaki - tried this at the 1st markham place stall but will try at the Scarborough T&T version
#44 - Bymark burger
#62 - Jumbo beef empanada at Kensington
#82 - El Gordo's kimchee empanada
#86 - Pho 88
#90 - Crab lamprie at teh Hopper Hut
#96 - David Lee's ribs
Has anyone tried these and which ones are the must-trys? Thanks.
I had the Shrimp Lamprie at the Hopper Hut. They were out of Crab, but what I got contained crab legs (for flavouring I guess). It was a huge meal, and pretty good too. It's definitely worth a try.
I also had Gerry's Black Cake #16 - totally interesting and unique. I also had a taste of Jamaican Sorrel #28, which is mixed with rum while I was there. Their Jerk Chicken is worth a try too.
The Jumbo beef empanada is ok, not a must try though. The fresh salsa they serve with it is very good.
Greg's roasted marshmallow ice cream is amazing and completely original. At first it tastes burnt but once you have acquired a taste for it its great. Try it with some of there hot fudge. It could be a seasonal thing because I was just there to pick up some vanilla for x-mas and they didnt have the mashmallow.
