This is a great idea.
Because of the shift I work, I wouldn't be able to join in, but might I make a recomendation?
You need to find a good Vietnamese restaurant, and treat yourself to a bowl of Pho.
In Mississauga I would check out the golden turtle (my personal fave), on Central pkwy, and in Hamilton, Pho dau bo is quite good, with the east end location being the much nicer of the two.
The prices reasonable, the servings huge, and the food is great.
You will get addicted to the soup, not to mention the spring rolls.

It's pretty easy to get to, bayview and 16th.. I think.. WELL WORTH THE TRIP, Have to give them notice cause they have line ups out the door almost every day..
Funny, my brothers and I do an annual birthday dinner (our birthdays are all withyin a month of each other) and the Malaysian place is where we are going this year on Nov 11.
I'm right near Bayview/16th! I'll do a review Never tried Malaysian food before.
Too bad, I'd come Wednesdays, but my kid has indoor baseball practices for his Rep team on Weds.

Your going to love it. There is a lot of curry dishes but everyone has had curry, the rice is wikked cause instead of water it is done with coconut milk. Jasmine rice done in coconut milk is like heaven... A friend of mine has a Malay wife, I should find out what's the best dishes for you to try, I will let you know that the TOmyum soup is spicy hot but not hot without flavour.. It's just so good. Great food...

Thanks, the more you know........
So I got a craving and tried a Malaysian Place at lunch today, a little hole-in-the-wall called Gourmet Garden on Sheppard Ave E. at Brimley. Really good food, but more of a 'roadfood' experience, not fine dining by any means, but I don't care, after all we're 'adventure' people!

Haggis is delicious!

Whiskey is Irish. Scotch, and the other pretenders are just whisky.

If you really want to sample some Scottish delicacies, look no further than the munchy box.

A Suggestion

Just a thought:

The GTA Merged Mega-Thread has folks representing a fairly vast area. My suggestion is that there's probably enough people to support two dinner meetings per month.

Here's my thinking. We do a West on the fourth Wednesday and an East on the Second Wednesday of each month.

My guess is that not many folks from Whitby are going to want to make the trek to Hamilton for the November 26th dinner evening. So why not have a dinner meet on Wed Nov 12 for the folks in the East?

And on it could go until we all get to ride again in March or April.

Thought to mention it after seeing so many good suggestions for dinner meet spots. More good dinner spots than the five months of winter.

So how about it? Doughy, can you get folks into your fave Malaysian joint for Wednesday November 12th?

It doesn't always have to be East West, of course. We've got folks here from Barrie to the lake and Hamilton to Oshawa and beyond. I'm sure it could develop organically enough, like everything else around here, just don't want to "limit" a good idea to once a month.

Just a thought.

November 26th is the day Amanda and I arrive in Toronto from South Africa


Would love to join this meal deal..... and if anyone is game, I will get Amanda to cook up a true South African meal for the one evening?


Our culture is a true melting pot, so we have Cape Malay, British, French, Dutch, and original African influences in the gastronomic delights back home.


Lat ons weet! (let us know)




ps: if our hosts arent keen for a big bunch of crazy ADVRiders, perhaps someone else would be keen to host their place as a venue for that evening (if anyone is keen of course)

Don't know where you're staying HGL, but why don't you, Amanda and your hosts just join us for a good Indian scoff in Hamilton? Might be simpler after a long flight. It would great to meet you all. I've heard a little about you from some of the local KTM crowd.

Yours is a fine plan for a later evening perhaps?

Of course, anything goes and remains subject to change?

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
dr&mrs cool are looking forward to something new. Not sure if we have ever had the pleasure of a full Indian meal but have sure been roasted by the odd lime pickle.

Is the Beer ethnic as well? You know I gotta try some of the imports to go along with a meal. .

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.

Hey Lornce!

After the great time I had up at the Fall Ride, I'd be very interested in meeting you FF's for some fine cuisine. Really, I don't have an excuse not to show up, being local and all! If you can assure me that everyone will be on their best, I mean, normal behavior (no wheelies etc.), I'll bring along Mrs. Twistn' too. After I got back from the Fall Ride weekend I told her I met some very respectable, level headed, down to earth folks..... you'd fit right in!

Cheers,

~TR~

Dr.Cool, you're going to love Cheetah beer. A nice refreshing lager that goes perfectly with Indian food. Lots of variety at the buffet, too. Don't be thinking it's all hot and spicy either, cause there's lots of sweeet and creamy, vegetables and salads, too. Something for every taste.

But remember, you've only got two hands and one plate so you really have to plan carefuly how best to fill and refill and refill your plate. It's tougher than it sounds.

TR, Be good seeing you again and nice to meet the Missus Twist. No wheelies, I can promise. unless someone who will remain unamed makes the trip from _______.
