No more stores in the Toronto for the Hot Sauce

Indianguy Mar 9, 2011 06:05 AM

Yes? Hi! We were looking to get the more hot sauces and the Tasting the 4th Sense on the Danforth did the closing and the Instant Catering at the St. Lawrence Market no longer does the hot sauce and the only other place for the boring sauces is in the Kensington Market.

Are there any stores in the Toronto that has the good selection of the hot sauces?

      I was in La Tortilleria Market on Dufferin 2 doors south of Bloor and they had a good selection of Mexican hot sauces. They also had a good selection of canned and dried chipotles, peppers, and green chillis, as well as refried beans, salsa of all kinds and imported Mexican brands.

      They also make their own Nacho chips that are the best I have ever had by a large margin.

        The southern BBQ place in Burlington WAS the best place for hot sauces (Most places seem to stock Mexican hot sauces, but getting the north american stuff proves much harder)

        Too bad all the gluttons in Burlington were eating A&W and McDonalds instead of supporting the only BBQ place in town, and now they've shut down

          The Cheese Boutique has a good selection of hot sauces, salsas, bbq sauces and condiments in general.

            heese Boutiique has a good selection of hot sauces but Sun Valley on Danforth Ave has a good selection also. Not the same selection, but similar.

            Cheese Boutique does have some great meat and cold smoked bacon, the beef is aged at least 40 days.

            I'm amazed by the selection at many grocers these days, but the one stop shop with every sauce selection seems to be a thing of the past. The great store in the Ottawa Market also closed.

            As a tip though, a local hot sauce called Cooksville Hot Sauce is fantastic. I've been buying it for years and it is my "go to" use straight stuff (ie. on top of eggs, pizza, chili,...). Comes in a range of flavors but the Original is my fav.
