irish stew cheap from can
 Best food value from a can - beats Campbells etc soups
and Chili offerings out there etc all te hell! Best taste quality 
and value of any such idea of food serving. Stock up on lots! You'll
be hooked. Have even some Franks etc hot sauce on hand too
if you like additionally. (No Frills grocery locations)
A USA product initially, also made locally elsewhere under 
licence agreement or their own added plant in your own locale.

Creamy Italian chicken marsala
- enuf of the just pasta and

copout eh!
Creamy Italian chicken marsala



cheap to buy fast heated up sausage to make at home
buy cheap in pckgs of 5 or 10 or more at competitive supermarket outlets
20 minutes in the oven (turn over once in-between) voila - a feast for cheap!

sausage dressings
perk up the taste with some onion and peppers - why not!!


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:

the firendly greek on danforth
Mondays are for vacationing seeming at some places (closed mondays) aw
(on danforth avenue near chester subway station)


big smoke burger locspecial


Best Burger deal in town for an approx
just ten dollar outing!
(plus tax- complete combo!!) (Halal available)
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


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

best limonata
available by the whole case too on amazon.com
- cheap to get stocked up on now for parties etc!!


great cheesecake idea open 24hrs
Rabba's sherbourne ave location on front
street. Other variations (cherry version, chocolate
swirl etc just a tad bit more, $2.99 plus tax)




chicken_tikka_idea_for_everyone_to_offer
usually mild taste sorta yet sooo delicious tasting fer shure!!
if need be, tone the spice level for even the western palette of
taste buds fer shure!!
marinated tender for certain for best
results! avoid chili taste - just tasty full flavours instead



butter chicken



Bourbon street grill eaton centre location
tikka hicken
A two meat one veggie along with rice or noodle combo at
Bourbon street grill at Eaton Centre (best taste and value
of any competing such offerings out there) is $12.50 plus tax
(just add bbq sauce as shown to the rice) the food otherwise
has lots of flavour and with nicely done tasty sauce in too
(Bourbon Street Grill - eton centre) Lousiana style cajun
foods along with sweet-sour type offerings from abroad.
A family size container offering of this tasty treat goes
for just a twenty dollar bill (tax included) at gerrard
square food court as an outlet there offers similar menu
items here too.



side bacon idea all "a-round"

by the slice or by the pound - look for the sign with
reasonable price showing wherever it's to be found

Italian style grilled cheese -
that's the way its unbeatable!!

Italian_grilledcheese

Italian wraps are supreme
Generously filled wrap
- Italian style!!


Top idea too for quick lunch - sausage on a bun/croissant!! My most fav quick
food too by far!!
kobassa from costco yay





forget bagels - croissants are a more
tasteful idea!!
standard meal plan idea


The best tasting sliced meats (pckgd) are shown below:
Thai Chili chicken breast plus Kolbassa loaf. Check around!!

                                                       
brandt kobassa loaf top pickpliiers thai chili chicken breast top pick

also nice is Hungarian
Kravovska sliced meat
                                   


krakovska 
      best ham deal in town$5.50 reg

                                         
brandt kobassa
Kobassa (the real stuff as offered by brands like
Brandt and Pillers mainly) is the best tasting such
great quality sausage meat to be found. Brandt
also offers a spicy version with multicultural
appeal as it were, while both have ham or turkey
options for kobassa - tasting similar yet allowing
for non pork preferrers to enjoy kobassa equally!!
Halenda brand seemed to taste more like polish sausage
rather than true kobassa. "Polish sausage" also offered
by brandt and Pillers is not as good a taste as kobassa
shown here in the brand names mentioned and similar
quality where it is to be found equally that is.



Aroma espresso bar offerings:

aroma espresso




shown below is my fav way to see such a breakfast served
- even has gourmet toasted rye bread option and generous
cuts of ham slices (lovely sausage if you prefer - or even bacon)
pictured at the OK diner (its friendly greek family owned too by
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:
https://www.yelp.ca/biz/ok-ok-diner-toronto
($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!!

wishlist to add to menu





esthers breaded rolls
especially delicious and tender tasting made -
(not overdone) plus lots of curry mash potato
filling plus meats. similarly available at
esthers soups and more (cumberland terrace)
(Yonge and bloor - west side across from
library)

ikea snack
Ikea diner is a place for a snack
or meal while shopping the best in furniture
ideas in certain niche categories that put to
complete shame any competitive ideas we've seen
around otherwise locally in the same category
or price bracket. Plus dishware and lots more.
Our lovely Italian print shown on our tourism
page is something I picked up from Ikea 20 years
ago now. My how time flies. Yet quality ideas endure!!
Fantastic quality complete handyman compact tool
sets (full size basic tools everyone should own
great christmas idea fer shure!!) these can be
a lifesaver when in need



best french onion soup picks - stock photo
check out the French onion soup as a great food option at your local bar
I prefer creamy thai soup (metro, longos etc freshly prepared) for
the nuisance of cutting through that gooey cheese now. oh well


calamari nite

bangers and mash
add seasoning into the beef would be our suggestion -
although the complimentary HP sauce goes about as
far for the nice taste too

tasty fried potato - soft cooked



baileys cheesecake



octoberfest sausage through metro deli
Now just $2.99 each - the mutual street location even offers them to you
cooked with a bacon wrapped around each one!! - nice!! recently served
a salt ridden serving instead - barely edible. tell them not to fool around
with the good stuff (as originally) eh

 The Keg Steak and lobster offerings

Supremely great steak 
and lobster fun place!!
(pricey though...)






kegs takeout  kegs york st loc
Red Lobster Restaurants
Many locations throughout  Canada + The United States


Steak and Lobster Great place for a lobster pizza when available (ten bucks and change) plus truly great Steak and lobster served just right and always reasonably priced!

(love the long Island Iced Tea served here - have it every time I'm here! - $9)

pre-pandemic visit for supper was for the
four course meal special (under twenty five
dollars) plus a couple more dollars to substitute lovely lobster bisque (small serving) and a few more dollars to have a great 7oz sirloin steak included.  delicious included dessert of fresh tasting vanilla scoop of ice cream along with a hot brownie
prices since all much higher and selection
poor. Gotta keep the place goin for the great
decor and history to our folks.

red lobster daily special menu choice on tuesdays
wine special
$5.99 wine special
- fridays

 
Lobster bisque maybe try too the (mainly broth) lobster bisque
Also, Complimentary fresh made english
biscuits served while your lunch is prepared
 
The maritime lobster should be ordered broiled,
and served with melted butter for best taste (not
boiled/steamed). 7 oz sirloin also available
steak best cooked over a fire.

 

 
  red lobster free-refills lemonade
these gift cards are each a great idea           Free refills on pop or GREAT (under $4) lemonade
here too (as available)                        flavours - regular, strawberry or peach with your meal!

burger looks great but is typical to what you find at many bars - the
better way to prepare beef-burger offerings is as being done at "big
smoke" top burger outlets in town ($10+ complete combo offerings of
better beef burger texture quality)
burger deal   signature shrimp cocktail - fantastic



Remember to give a kings ransom of a generous tip here too, especially!
hooters club member only idea soon to be???? yeah!!!!!!
For the sanest of spirited women loving men, whosoever would dare say "all is lost here??" NEVER!!
Give the merited care you deserve to give to those who deserve to receive - that's ONLY the fair thing to do eh!!
(Michael Rizzo - Leader eurocoalition.org / eurohumanist.org) Human Rights advocate and crusader "second to none"!!
Amen
(See the "just to die for" knockout below) (Otherwise hold on to your wallets in protest 
I suppose... maybe just kiddin,,, just you try us...)
  Hooters blonde 
Anytown doin without such supremely decently such funmost ideas, 
oughta be locked down still - and remain so forever more amen!!

$11.99 - why go anyplace else fer crissakes huh!!
Hooters daily special menu

Hooters happy hour domestic bottle
$3.99 3pm-6PM weekdays

lucky young boy at hooters having just great fun 



mr bean at hooters ha ha





Lusrina Limonata brand (amazon.ca) is tops instead! 
(blended with a bit of orange juice additionally)



Plus, great passion fruit drink available
widely from Cdn distributor $2.25/litre
and up (Cheapest is "No Frills" supermarket)
Gotta have this stuff around on the menu! Delicious!

tropicana grape              
Tropicana concentrated grape juice gives
a uniquely rich delicious taste for grape 
juice/wine fans!


Burger and fries presentation suggestion
Many bars tend to offer specials such as a  Burger meal
deal with a drink purchase along with a "Happy hour" drink 
offering daily. I enjoyed even more, recently a grilled jumbo 
(pictured) huge kobassa sausage on a bun plus purchased 
a delicious Smirnoff (with ice) at this bar. red lobster
would be a nice place to go find some tender beef
burgers mainly - why not eh!!

 




A & W OJ / mama burger
A&W $3.49 (double) buddy burger deal nice burger
value for around this price level comparison!! (with
carmelized onions incl too) and mayo too!
Burger has 2 thin slices of more of a real beef
food here otherwise too high priced by comparison
to family owned style restaurants etc for overall
value experience.



delicious creamy thai soup

metro on front @church street's
lovely flavour (creamy)
thai chicken soup (western
style and quality flavour
certainly) (priced just right from
$2.99 and up

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 
$10-$15 (Another most favourite recommended pick too around these price levels
choice of one or more lovely meats and great fresh prepared sides equally in very
reasonably priced combo offerings starting around just $8 plus drink if desired)
 

best food court choice above
all else there!!


Eaton Centre location plus others

 
 


 
lamb shank - sauced up
Lamb shank idea - why not in a sauce/curry (for fans of greek food
especially too!)same for meatloaf alternative style of prep

Souvlaki in tandoori or even bbq flavour choices
Why not try alternating flavours when you enjoy a Souvlaki
as usual - (best combo meal pick) - try it too with maybe
tanddori or cooked with hot bbq sauce option too maybe
- why not!! ($11.99 as shown across from Dundas square)



ali babas - queen street @ broadview ave location
ali baba samosas treat
samosas here are somewhat smaller
sized fer shure - but nice tasting and fair 
value at $1.10 each with free creamy garlic dip
included on request. spicy dip at danforth location

 





Lets have more such creative style 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!






loblaws offer!!



open holidays
great eggs benedict here too - open on so-called holidays too
now that's so bloody sane an idea for this finally town too!!
(busy location also located behind eaton centre downtown)



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)

Metro Deli Octopus salad sample treat

www.eurocoalition.org




"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)
Little Italy B
