Wicked ONTARIO: Eat The World Culinary Tour!

The riding season is slowly coming to an end, and if the current threads are any indication, it looks cabin fever is quickly setting in! So in an effort to curb the situation and avoid a cabin inferno, I'm proposing a monthly Ontario ADV dinner from the different cuisines of the world One idea is to pick the last Wednesday of every month and have a ADV'er introduce us to his/her heritage through food, lots of it

We had a test run last night with GREAT success. A bunch of FFs got together at Paramount Foods to sample some tasty middle eastern treats and all was in agreement, that this should become a monthly adventure into uncharted culinary teritory.

So without any further adieu, let the festivities begin.

Who is the first taker? Uber?

Modern India Buffet

Kind of out of the way for some of you Toronto FF's but there's an incredible Indian joint in Hamilton: The Modern Indian Buffet. I've been to most of the good joints on Gerrard St. in Toronto's Little India and this one's among the best. No foolin. Cheap too.

Not sure when but at some point over the winter if all'a you FF's wanted to make the trip to Hamilton you would leave groaning with over-stuffed goodness.

It'd easily seat as many as made the trip. Place is huge and the service is excellent.

namaste,
Lorenzo

Count me in Lornce... I'm willing to carpool down to Hamilton.






So last night was a blast! Great to see everyone and the food was out of this world! Kahoon was working his magic, I started to think he was running the joint!


So.... what does everyone think about making this happen on the last Wednesday of every month?! 7:30 - 8pm kick off!

November 26th
December 24th (umm.... maybe we should schedule for the Monday?! - Dec. 22???)
January 28th
February 25th
March 25th


Lornce... you want the Nov. slot?!

May I suggest Polish / Eastern European Cuisine for December?!?!?!??!?!?!?!

Last night was awesome and I left stuffed.

I'd be more than willing to trek out to Hamilton...Lornce..I didnt think you had any Indian background...do you?

I guess everyones own ethnic background isnt necessarily a pre-requisite for determining what type of food we eat....Chinese would be great sometime but I can't recall having any Asian ADV riders who could host that.

Toronto and area is one of the best cities going when it comes to availability of diverse ethnic culinary establishments so we should never run out of ideas or appetite.

Last Wednesday of every month from now through March sounds like a good plan. Dec 22nd is definitely better than the 24th though and Polski sounds yumski!

LETS EAT!

What's the parameters here? Is there a ballpark budget, a dollar limit? Is it guys night out, or are spouses invited?

Rummy, Did you do KTM logo pumpkin as well?

Nice job...very original. How long did that take you?

Uh, first time I hear of it too...

How do we join?

Robbie can pull wheelies so that should qualify him.
And I can't so that should qualify me!

So?

Ube, If it's agreeable to the rabble, then sure, November at the Modern India Buffet. Dinner is $13.99 and it includes a freaking beer. Don't let the price fool you. It's excellent, authentic Indian.

Rummer, That's the finest pumpkin I've seen this year. Bravo. I might join Mike and we'll come by your place as a "gang".

Mike, I'm anglo-indian or indo-anglian however you want to call it. My mom grew up in Calcutta. I do the head bobble thing now and then but you've gotta watch for it.

Thraan, This place is priced for KLR budgets and their wives.

Robbie, Last night was a test run so we kept it kinda small to see how it was going to work. Besides, we didn't want you wheelying through the taboulae and making a scene.

Doughy, Go away.

See you FF's in November!

urRRPpp,
Lornce
