Some Pubs we've seen around have a beautiful selection of the best songs picked
for jukebox playing with a modern machine that offers a huge number of such great
songs from the 70s (bee gees, Fleetwood Mac, The Eagles, Yvonne Elliman, and tons
more) and with the best songs from Van Morrison ("Someone like you" / "Have I told
you lately") Christopher Cross (Arthurs theme, Ride like the wind), Leann rimes, ("Cant
fight the moonlight" - discounted price, plus "Wasted days and wasted nights") Jackie
Evancho, Andy Gibb (even played a George strait song - "Amarillo by mornin!" - nice
country selections equally!) You might even blow a twenty on a jukebox in that case,
and not live to regret it as it gives a shot in the arm our planet hasn't had for just too
bloody long now I say - time to end the abuse with bullshit so-called music we are
subjected to in a bid to make for stupid applied ideations of so-called "equality" in
such regard as human sanity of actual objective merit historically speaking
as applied to music tastes and what have you - for gods sakes I submit with care!
Jackie Evancho's best song performances of traditional great songs were included in
what we found around, - except my most favourite "imaginer" - although not a song
as well known here - check it out at my music appreciation and download site here:

best burger deal in town

Over this past decade I've been in literally hundreds of times I figure for the Wednesday drink and burger special back then - now its just five bucks fifty
for a full 20 oz pint on their molsons and other drink specials - late nights and
afternoons too - check for posted times. currently 3pm-6pm and again from
9pm - close (as late  as 2AM at the atrium on bay location - its the only one
for me as they potentially have the right music with the jukebox option mainly
available for some of the greatest songs of 70s-90s decades plus more!
Special also applies all day sat-sun

The best tasting drink wherever liquor is to be found
to be had - smirnoff - now also available in peachy
and pink flavours

tender meatloaf chunks cooked into (oil rich) curry sauce - its a
better idea than just a dry hard meat idea of a meal serving instead!
Its served as "kabab curry" at sams indo-pakistani kitchen on river st.
(near gerrard) (quality may vary from this image which was shot there)

tandoori souvlaki
Complete souvlaki chicken combo meal -

the way) 1128 queen street east - get off at jones and walk back
westward a just less than a half a block (1128 Queen street east)
see more including hours open at this link here:
($9.50 plus tax and tip - as pictured) shown are 2 large poached eggs
or three eggs if you prefer prepared non-poached instead (over easy etc)
make it my way

back bacon is a much better way to go over strip bacon
for breakfast sandwich offerings by the way, and ham
should always be an option to replace bacon for a side
offering with breakfast - eggs benedict style is tops!!

although the complimentary HP sauce goes about as
far for the nice taste too

octoberfest sausage through metro deli

schneiders octoberfest octoberfest sausage - sweet tasting real thing

rowesbutchers cooked sausage offerings
queen street east at logan (east of broadview)
Now available with dijon mustard included

served - but this fresh meats butcher outlet
has potential to improve on this offering.

"top dogs" 100

longos thai chicken soup - fabulous 
Top quality ingredients throughout (usually sold out before lunchtime is altogether done - wow!)
Another great creamy soup ideas to offer along too:

Creamy ham and potato
Should have lotsa ham and smaller matching cuts 
of potato - have the tobasco or similar hot sauce on
the ready for more of a kick to the taste equally!
creamy ham and potato soup
lobster bisque
Loblaws $3.99 and up lobster bisque offering is now a bit shy
on flavour - but is generous sized an offering and a real 
treat at this price anyway likely. (Lower jarvis st. location)

Great everyday delicious lunch and dinner value lunch/dinner meals between

Quiznoz lobster

Quiznos offers fully nine inch subs right
now for around under ten dollars Cdn with
mainly lobster and with some alaskan pollock
added in the preparation too. (served with lettuce
and with butter if you prefer it to heaps of lobster
sauce we suggest the latter instead). subway
has gotten pricey for their meager offerings
and are too intensely focused at times
on too much time spent
giving out toppings
painstakingly seeming altogether too much

Taco bell taco special deals
Taco Bell offers the best tasting beef (in sauce)
preparation in their tacos and burritos
however only in snack sized offerings
it would appear at present. what's needed
is a large man-sized option filled with this
tasty beef in sauce as it is prepared for
best taste. Also bring back the old mexi fries
- its an option we'd be willing to pay for

A bar previously located on king street had
a great deal on wednesdays lunch menu offerings
of seafood tacos served with coors beer - cheap
combo priced to build up business in this town!
Mexican shrimp tacos


Lets have more such offerings for breakfast everywhere eh

The only way to cook bacon so it doesn't seem like
dog biscuits it is that your crunching on instead
Bacon has to be cooked SOFT - not crispy or it aint
worth eatin, let alone payin for for crissakes!
done right (completely soft) its delicious stuff!

Paddingtons Pub

How about an "eggs benedict" treat here at Paddington's
located at the popular Toronto St Lawrence Market
(main level) Truly superior service too (easily worth a million
I'd say! in my own regards personally).

Paddington's St Lawrence Market - Toronto
Bullseye Guinness BBQ sauce

Best breakfast treat by far given the Irish
spirited folk that usually work here

paddingtons blueberry pancake deal

longos supreme quality soup

nice mini breakfast sandwich deal on yonge st ,
yonge-bloor st - around three bucks!! incredible!

The most fabulous cheap breakfast offering in town
is at Cumberland terrace (lower level food court
location) entrance off yonge street (across from
library near yonge/bloor) or entrance off Bay Street
(Cumberland terrace). Delicious and fresh  ingredients
from start to finish - soft english muffin, fresh egg,
lovely ham slices with melted gourmet looking cheese
fresh slice of tomato - all just $3.25 plus if you like
add 99cents for a medium coffee from "Van Houte"
(Columbian or house special) place is called "wraps
to go' and have nicely appealing mediterranean styled
western wraps etc fresh made French seeming server
mainly on in mornings. nice!

Metro's deli's (front street) great $3.49 quarter
Jerk style chicken (dark or white available)
Used to be tender and juicy made here
(maybe check around for better quality now)
metro front street deli jerk chicken

Jerk chicken recipes often found freely on net
carlsbad site recipes galore
should be served tender marinated,
soaked in jerk sauce

Available in a great full meal offering for $7.49 including a couple of Octoberfest
sausages and choice of two sides such as pasta in a delicious curry style sauce
parisienne potato, scallop potato, mixed veggie, veggie rice, or mac'n cheese
Make sure you get the great sausage here when its best - fresh and not overdone!

Just under fifteen bucks for a full litre of Port (Tawny 84) @LCBO!! my fav!!
If you own a restaurant, best deal on great shiraz red wine glass
offerings are made even more possible by Fronterra from Chile ($15.95 / 1.5L)
LCBO often seemingly misuses its monopoly licence
such as by only offering much more expensive port offerings instead
at most locations, having replaced Port with "sake" at some locations we're told

Metro Deli Octopus salad sample treat

A "Presidents Choice" giftcard  makes a thoughtful gesture 
as a gift of lunch meals all month long. $5-$500 President's  
Choice Giftcards
Best tasting cold meat pick: Kobassa (Ham or Turkey)
also for sliced sausage pick - the spicy version is
a tad hot - just enough for taste of the chili would
be better - still the best of deli meat brands however
Brandt Kobassa
Ask for it on  party trays (cut into thick slices)
- See Metro Supermarket party platters offerings. 
Brandt and Pillers brands most commonly found 
around locally and known for best quality along 
with "Pillers". 
Avoid the (@Metro) Halenda Brand Himalayan salt flavoured 
version as it isn't seeming genuine kobassa taste when we last checked

presidents choice hot sauce la costena franks hot sauce valentina hptsauce
Nice hot sauce picks for all
BBq chicken pck deal from Kitchen table Deli
Beats KFC Popeyes Churchs Chesters
and all others in this business.

chicken swkewer we recommend (flavoured delicious)

"Bourbon Street Grill" Unbeatable for taste and sheer value - amazing 
amounts of food in huge selections including spicy beef, garlic or cajun shrimp, 
Bourbon chicken (specialty here) and lots more with great tasting lotsa sides 
to pick from - all fresh made - around ten bucks for a combo - my fav deal here! 
- check for end-of-day specially pre-made combos too - around seven bucks to go!
maybe Also try the food court at Gerrard Square Mall (near pape) for similar
food but with less taste

Nice looking branch with flags of friendship between our 
two countries in addition, also in clear evidence
(lovely TD bank branch location on the danforth near the
greek tourism area) by the way tD bank is tops for best bank 
services provider many of us have found! TD also has the most 
convenient ATM designs with multiple choices of currency 
denominations when you make a withdrawal - even just a five 
dollar bill if need be - and their unlimited transaction plans 
allow all the debit card use for a reasonable small monthly fee 
- you can even use their select ATM dispenser for US currency 
withdrawals rather than having to go elsewhere trying to find 
it at such reasonable cost and convenience. In the U.S. too we 
like citibank too mainly for best similar service too hopefully!!

Little Italy A
TD did a great job in sponsoring the festivities in the Italian section
on college street during the 2022 festival season celebrations - 
ta and grazie equally folks!! ("second to none" - thanks again to TD)

Groceries here usually available 24hrs at choice locations - why not wine and

 merit as they as sometimes closed (all day mondays and select "holidays") -
 some locations have limited selections of merited choices it would appear (Port
 etc) . Lets decide for ourselves instead - wherever we see fit - including beer
 and mostly wine by the glass availability at sausage cart vendors, all grocery
 related outlets and any restaurants with a minimal fee ($100 annually max)

For more tasty takeout, consider
spadina st. (west) Chinatown section
or on broadwiew at Gerrard (west side) for mainly just great BBQ duck by the pound - only around five bucks a meal in days gone by...

Much nicer tasting deals than what's around for chinese

by comparison for the folks around over the years - too much rice filler
and dough mainly in their so-called "chicken balls"

jerk pork
This used to be a nice enuf exotic taste experience now and then when
the prev owner (Paul) from Jamaica (a former white settler family
there) however the quality is no more the same anymore as its too
overly spicy and thick crusted and not seeming like fresh tender
cooking despite just being fresh from the oven anymore.

presidents choice oj
Presidents choice 1.75 litre OJ bargain
- at this price, taste is none better anywhere
else!! even greater taste than tropicana -
the truth be told - it just tastes more
natural and even comes in at least as good
as the currently more commonly found
other popular pick - "simply" brand.

Often seeming on discounted sale at
"Freshco" along with "No Frills" supermarket outlets
plus Shoppers Drug Mart too. Also best for top
Orange juice pick equally to Presidents choice -
both beat out Tropicana while Simply also has the
best rich tasting Lemonade along with Tropicana
next down the list

tropicana hit
Some flavours not so good - stick with
the banana
and orange mixed in too
Orange strawberry banana (as shown) just
great but tastes off without banana

Limonata (from Italy)
is the best tasting treat for your group gatherings!!
My own best pick is the Lurisia flavoured offering
of bottled Limonata served chilled.
best limonata
Has concentrated orange juice blended in for
great overall added taste enhancement experience!!
Best limonata brand!!

castello havarti
Find great cheese such as white cheddar, mozzarella
Swiss and even havarti fer shure best bought from
"Castello" I always say! ciao folks (Check President's choice
across the board always too) PLUS Cracker barrel,
Black Diamond, Dofino and more brands from Europe especially.

Pasta should always be served with heaps of generously seasoned and
meat-filled sauce with some veggies added for variety. Tons 'o Meat has to replace
the overabundance of tomato like substitutes in too many Pasta based dishes.
Likewise rice should never be plain or dry or just white. Plenty of sauce and curry
like spice taste, even would be great  along with mixed in veggies where appropriate.
