Home Made Rotis.

Full House: I posted this under the Kitchen Machines, just to inform that the Machine will be paid off with in a Year. I happened to meet an old friend of mine there in town and we both headed to 7600 Weston Rd. I picked up a few croissant at that location. Adjacent to it there were our regular Rotis and the brand name was 'Santosh'.
rajcanada: Since I don't live in GTA, I do not have any recommended place but there are so many people running tiffin services in GTA from their homes. You can check CD Classifieds or Kijiji. Most of them would sell freshly made home made rotis.
Fido: Are there any recommended places where you can get home made rotis ( whole wheat preferred ) ? We currently get ours from Scarborough - Suraj Desi Kitchen , but exploring for other tried and tested options also. Not looking forward for the well packaged Mom Made or Crispy brands but home made in plastic packages of 10 ..

Where o buy a Piano

Full House: Talents aplenty and with the current day of posting to the U-Tube through the Internet makes it a pleasure waiting for new postings to it. I am one of the Eager Beaver who looks into it and also play it a few times to enjoy the same before posting it to you. This is one of a great compositions, where
Fido: Thanks a lot FH for your immensely valued advice and more than that your blessings ! I echo your feelings about this piano and my search is over ..lock , stock & barrel .... If an opportunity permits , I would use my own receivers to amplify the sound .. got an Onkyo gathering dust ... :) (
Full House: Dear Fido, This machine is a very good one and I am sure will last a long time. I was looking at the details on POLYPHONY and this one is tops on that and a keen ear will accept that rate. Just make sure it has a good AMPLIFIER for the sound and/or sound out to an extension for external speakers, in case you want to add additional amplification.

Hasni: "Canada Post will charge $9.95 plus HST on the value of goods at a minimum" Dear raj, can you elaborate on it. Is it about importing some item from overseas, and whether it is a flat rate ! Thanks

Any suggestion or first hand expereince on best Kodi box in the market...

RBO: Just curious....now in this fast world and crazy price for cable from giant players like Bell, Rogers......how many people or percentage in GTA or in Canada people are using real legal cable with limited channels with crazy prices...?? I was talking to my IPTV provider and he have almost all kind
nari: Sadly, that is the plight we as the Canadian consumers are getting ripped off everywhere be it shopping for food,clothes, getting services for the amount of money we spent etc. As long as the big/small business with controlled competition & using tax breaks from government create jobs we should be happy:)
febpreet: That's what is in the offing with more customers cutting the cord and Cable is at all time unpopular. If it were not for the Desi channels, I know all Desis would've cut the cord a long time ago. In my household, parents are not interested in the mainstream programming (CBC, CTV, Global, City, etc.) for no fault of theirs, and hooked on to the Desi dramas 24x7.

Indian restaurants in GTA

Fido: For weekend S Indian buffet , we enjoy Sarvana Bhawan , for dosas it is Guru Lakshmi , Udupi & Swagrhuas .. Nilgiris Brampton is off our list as for the last couple of times , somehow we did not feel as great as the other ones. Blame these food related sequential posts on the other thread and the Friday !
Fido: In all honesty , of all the Indian restaurants I have tried in the GTA , my favorite is still the 'Dhaba' @ 309 King St W , Toronto (Entertainment District) .... the dishes taste very controlled and I have always loved my visit there .... no wonder it is always filled !!
Fido: Thanks to the other thread , I thought I should update this one with our latest pleasant experience. The restaurant name is Desi Spice on the corner of Hwy 27 & Finch in Etobicoke ..Adjacent to Tim Hortons , so you cannot miss. We tried their buffet and it was awesome ... veg and non veg items
Fido: Buffet wise India's Taste is best though slightly expensive @ $13. Sanjhi Rasoi's buffet comes 2nd @ $10 but not too much variety and food quality comparably is not as good as India's Taste. Rajdhani is cheap and good enough with a thali option for $6/- So per me the order would be : India's Taste Sanjhi Rasoi Rajdhani
