    every grocery in little portugal has the portugese version, either sweet or hot. i get the sweet and it's pretty close to the scottish stuff i grew up with (although they use rice instead of oats i think)

      If you are looking for the Scottish version, you can try the But 'n' Ben Bakery and Butcher in Scarborough. I think it is on Ellesmere Road. Here is their website
      I get mine there and quite like it.

        It also appears frequently on The Black Hoof and Hoof Cafe menus, with variations.

              Filipino soup features "chocolate soup", i believe. that's what you're looking for.
              there are some Filipino restos in Toronto, but i can't comment on the quality of food. Some are near Eg West subway stn on Eglinton

                nota bene had it on their menu about a year ago (when i last went). It was quite delicious along with its accompaniments! .... but i'm not sure if they still have it. it is of the more "sausage-like" variety (european?) .... rather than the cube-like/smooth/runny variety (asian?)

                  Think I saw it on the menu at Lickin Chicken, Airport Road. If not, lots of other goodness there.

                    Black Pudding can be purchased at any Trinidadian or Guyanese owned West Indian Restaurant. such as Charlies and Drupati's,You can find more in the Share Magazine or other West Indian magazines.

                        many countries have a version of this delight...
                        do you have a version in mind?

                            I imagine you are after the English version and here I am with a suggestion for morcilla, the South American version.

                            There's other good chow in that area.
