Special request - Garlic Spare Ribs?

justxpete Mar 8, 2014 05:03 PM

So my sister is here from Germany for tonight and tomorrow (day) only. She's requested Garlic Spare Ribs. Since I think they're gross (no other word I can think of to accurately describe my distaste for them), does anyone know who makes a fairly decent version (downtown preferably)?

Also correct me if I'm wrong, but this a basterdized Western dish, yes?

    I'd just take her to one of the big chinese buffets, like Dragon Pearl. Sure chowhounders won't go crazy there, but it makes people happy.

      Not downtown, but house of chan makes a great version, plus they have incredible steaks. You both win

        I thought they had closed down... I guess it was just for renovations?

          I don't believe they've closed down.

          They will be closing (possibly relocating?) eventually when that space becomes a subway station on the Eglinton LRT.

          But in the meantime I believe it's still business as usual.

            Perhaps confusing it with China House?

              Ahhhh. That makes sense.

          Not downtown, but Guest House on Donlands does a good version. Take out only.
