  1. I see Tripe and brains and various organs for sale at my local Fortino's in Brampton on a regular basis.

    1. Black Hoof is famous for offal. Don't know if they have brains.

      1. Takht-e Tavoos, an Iranian restaurant has kalleh pacheh (lamb's head) on their menu.

          We tried Takht e Tavoos for brunch this morning. Very busy. We had to wait for a table. Thank you for the recommendation as my guest enjoyed the kalleh pacheh. Sadly they do not serve Turkish coffee on weekends as they get too busy. What a disappointment for my out of town guest.

        2. Buca has a dish with lamb brains on the menu.

              Buca was a crowd pleaser on Friday night. Thanks for recommendation.

            2. Lahore tikka has Brain masala on weekends.
