  1. Amazing news. Really happy to hear that. The Dumpling place at Broadview and Gerrad is ok, but nothing special.

      We quite like the Dumpling House on Gerrard, but nonetheless are thrilled about Mother's Dumplings coming to the Danforth.

          I know. I was referring to GG's post in which I presumed he mentioned Dumpling House as the only example of this kind of food in the Danforth/Riverdale area.

        it's not the same owners. mother's dumplings is on spadina. the one on gerrard is ok but they are not the ones opening this location.

          Confused. Nothing in their posts suggests they thought this. Quite the opposite.

        1. i've been calling it for a few years:
          Danforth East between pape and Coxwell may be the next food hotspot. and it makes so much sense. subway access vs a stupid streetcar.

            the only and har gow are my usual stops. pitifully low on my dukem visits..but it's there. danforth dragon doesn't get high marks, but chili chicken and singapore noodles are a guilty pleasure. for shopping, i really like masellis.

            what are your spots?

            streetcars just going to get worse. new ones are longer, which will make the "race by them when doors close" game that much more dangerous. hopefully new ones work when it gets super cold. end tangent.

              Dukem closed :-(

              In a couple visits I've become fond of the newish Japanese place near Jones can't recall the name, nice bright room, friendly people, decent food

                really? that's too bad. i missed that.

                1. re: grandgourmand

                  check the dukem thread. they are looking for a new spot.

                Von Donuts.
                Greenwood BBQ that's coming should be cool.
                The Wren.

            2. Oh my gosh, What incredible thrilling news, seriously! I think my property value just went up.
              Thanks for sharing, SO excited!!

              1. To be run by the daughter. "Same" menu, but with more finger foods and draught beer.

                  sounds interesting. something new to the danforth menu. mavericks had numerous owners and didn't make it so maybe this will be the stick in there
