Yet Another Update to the Gluten-Free Toronto Pages

The owner of Magic Oven has provided me with some new details. Magic Oven has recently opened Café Next Door, at 790 Broadview Avenue (416.469.1971). The menu features vegan, vegetarian, gluten-free and wheat-free options for lunch, dinner and weekend brunch.

Magic Oven now sells pizza by the slice.

Updates to Gluten-Free Toronto Pages

I added Megas Restaurant to the restaurants page and the Danish Style Bake Shop & Delicatessen to the stores page, with thanks to Rod for the suggestions. I also edited the listing for the Fox & Fiddle, which is no longer owned by Dennis Hansen, a celiac. Thanks to Janet for letting me know about that.

i bought one of the "daim" chocolate almond cakes from ikea that are gluten free. they're not bad, not super great. the dark chocolate on the top was too sweet, and didn't seem like dark chocolate. if they had actually used dark chocolate, it probabably would have been 50 times better. anyway, the cool thing is, that if people are looking for a dessert to serve that you can eat, or looking for a cake for you to have, it's easy enough to point them to ikea, since ikea is following close behind mcdonalds in it's attempts at world domination.

i leave you with "chocolate chips are still my salvation"

oh oh oh. but wait, it would not be like me to be done so quickly. also, there are these things..that are kind of like tacos but flat. and i am sooo liking them. they're easier to eat and i can think of about ten thousand ways to top them. they're tostadas, and they have them at nofrills and fiesta farms and are made from just corn.
(personally i make homemade ones that taste better but it's nice to just be able to buy stuff so you can have a life beyond this whole overwhelming wheatless adventure.)

and finally, i found those rice paper wraps that you make cold spring rolls with at no frills. i've been making mad amounts of cold spring rolls. they are sooo easy. you don't even have to cook the wrap stuff, just leave it in water for less than a minute and wrap up stuff in them.
but i have a question. i really really like deep fried thai spring rolls. i have been told they are not wheat free...so i'm wondering, can i not just deep fry the rice paper ones? anyone ever try that?
