Best chopped liver in Toronto?

I know, people hate the stuff, but every so often I get such a hankering. My favorite version is Solly's, in Montreal. They put honey in it, I think. Moving to the Annex this fall and looking for sources.

  1. I could be wrong, but you're not going to have much luck finding chopped liver downtown. The closest source will likely be Nortown on Eglinton, west of Bathurst.

      Seconded. Nortown would be a good bet for you near the Annex. I love their chopped liver.

        +1 for Nortown. Caplansky's also does a decent plate in your neighbourhood.

        I hesitate to mention it, but chopped liver is dead simple to make at home.

          +1 for Harbord Bakery. When they have it in, that is. I usually go on Saturday mornings and they only have it sometimes.

          I too get a hankering for it from time to time (e.g. once a month or so :-)

        2. Diamonds Fine Foods near the Promenade Mall - 7700 Bathurst St.

          Choose chicken or beef - both available - accompanied by fried onions

          Delicious, ungreasy and velvety smooth

          (OK, it isn't exactly Toronto - but when you drive a few blocks south and cross Steeles Ave you will have the best CL in Toronto!)

          Enjoy

          1. Centre Street Deli also carries chopped liver and fried onions.

            I"m far from an expert but I find it quite palatable.

            1. Caplansky's chopped liver is very good!

                Do they bring it in, or is it made in-house? Does anyone know?
