Korean Grocery Store

I watched a program called Street Eats on Sun TV and they featured a Korean Grocery store in North TO that had a rice cake machine that puffed up the rice cakes and shot them out like a cannon. Does anyone know where this store is located?

Thinking about visiting this weekend. Thanks

    That'd be Galleria at Yonge and Steeles.

      Yup... it's at Galleria, the website is down right now: http://www.galleriasm.com/

      But it's located here:
      7161 Yonge St, Thornhill, ON

      I love these things. I've seen them and the machine at the T&T in Mississauga, also at the PAT in Mississauga, though it's not often that I see them being made on the spot. Maybe the T&Ts up north have them too?

        Nope, I haven't seen them at any TnT's up here (Warden & Steeles and Bathurst & John) .... i've only seen it being made at Galleria. And just to expand on lilith's directions, it's on Yonge, one light north of Steeles on the east side.

        The T&T stores have the cakes but not all of them have the machine. The H mart on Yonge south of Major Mac has the machine and the cakes. There are many varieties, I like the mini ones. The machine at Galleria is running most of the time when I go.

          I saw that machine at Sam's club for a limited time, it was SO COOL!!! (not for sale, but a demo and the cakes were being sold) Just amazing how a thin layer of rice can be popped like that, tasted really nice too.

            Yeah, it's ALWAYS running at Galleria! Quite funny actually. We've tried the rice cakes and although I know they are supposed to be bland, whoa were they bland.

                Seen the machine at T&T cherry st also but the few times I've been there (usually at night) the guy wasn't there.

                  The Longo's on Laird has a machine like this. Sometimes they do rice, sometimes they do corn. And yes, T and T and Galleria have it as well.
