Of deli meats and Middle Eastern treats

Plus, hot yoga, 45 years of lawn care, and more

Yasmin Grill is a new restaurant serving shawarmas, shish kebabs and more in Richmond Hill.

Originally from Israel, owner Jhony Zecharyev says he decided to go into business after finding few Middle Eastern eateries in the area. Hot mushrooms and hummus is one of a few family recipes he’s put on the menu (205 Don Head Village Blvd., 905-770-0999).

A fusion Thai eatery called Pineapple Queen is now open on the main level of Thornhill Square.

Manager Johnny Choi says the owner thought it would be a good spot for a style of food that has grown in popularity in recent years.

So far, their pad Thai has been a hit with customers, he says.

Takeout and delivery are also available (300 John St., Unit 100, 905-709-1288).

A new Moksha Yoga studio will open in the area this month. Coowner Jackie Quinnell says she fell in love with the practice and went to train in India.

Moksha yoga is comprised of 40 poses that are done in a heated room.Quinnell says she finds it to be more accessible. In fact, moksha means “liberation” in Sanskrit (1480 Major Mackenzie Dr., Unit E8, 905-303-8886).

A full-service deli has come to the Richmond Hill area, offering breakfast, grilled goods and more. Bathurst St. Deli makes everything from scratch, using fresh ingredients, says owner Glenn Scheftz. Montreal smoked meat and pastrami are on offer. And gourmet pizzas are made in a wood-burning oven (9301 Bathurst St., Unit 1, 905-770-3354).

Thornhill Lawn Equipment is celebrating 45 years in business, selling and repairing power equipment. Snow removal gear is available for winter (385 John St., Unit 6, 905-889-5517).
