Ok, Toronto residents, I need specific information about food.
In Toronto, not so much.
I can get “New York Style” bagels anywhere, but New York Style bagels are crap, so who cares? I can’t find anywhere that serves what I recognize to be a shawarma. I’ve found a lot of places that serve something that looks like they’ve been given a grainy xeroxed picture of a shawarma with third-hand description scrawled on the page in crayon with instructions to replicate that on a tight budget, but nothing that I’d actually want to eat a second time.
I’m told by my colleagues here that you can get anything in the Big Smoke, and it’s all just about the best you can get anywhere, and I just haven’t been able to find it, and frankly that sounds like bullshit to me. I’m sure that if you moved from Kapuskasing to North Bay, you’d probably say the same thing about North Bay. Toronto’s pretty big, but the world is a lot bigger than Toronto.
But what the hell: I’m totally ready to believe here. All I need just a sliver of evidence. Where do I find these things?
