Where have all the masters gone. Searching for yesterdays masters today.
I have been speaking with alot of people lately about the old days and the best food,(not neccesarily restaraunt), in the GTA.
I was telling them about a chinese food restaraunt which was located at the 200 block of Markham road north of Eglinton in Scarborough in 1988.
The name was Victor Restaraunt..
The chef team was a very chinese husband and wife. His name Victor and I forget her name.
Victor was a master chef and his wife a master baker. Both were taught in China and both studied cooking here in Toronto or at least Canada.
This team were by far the absolute real deal.
The food was full of the most intense flavours and combinations. I have yet to be as impressed with food artistry as with these two smiling friendly people.. One favourite was shreddded pork, another deep fried crab claws that literally bursted with fresh flavour as the crab meat popped out of the claw resembling an ice cream cone. The best chinese food ever, PERIOD.
I went to B.C in 1990 and since returning ten years ago have looked for these two artists.
If anyone knows of their whereabouts please let me know.
Scarborough gets a ..it kicking for peoples lack of knowing the incredible ethnic diversity and skill of our little 3-4 table take outs. Your Loss.
Victor where are you.
