These are a few of my favourite things…

Chinese:
I’d say Finch Garden, but they closed, so I’ll have to go with Simon’s Wok. Kind of a hole-in-the-wall, but damn good Chinese food, oh and it’s 100% vegetarian.

Roti:
Roti Palace at Bathurst and Bloor is damn good. I suggest the two veg. roti, with spinach and squash.

Pizza:
Alberto’s is awesome, they deliver the best pizza, chicken, salads, pastas, fish & chips, subs, burgers & tex-mex etc! I used to live across the street from these guys, and it was the best thing ever, sadly, they don’t deliver to the part of Toronto I live in.

Sushi:
Who doesn’t love sushi? Mmm, sushi. I go between New Generation at Bathurst and Bloor and Japan Sushi, immediately next door. The former I was introduced to by Julie, the later I was introduced to by Kristin. They’re friends who I now assume have a deadly sushi rivalry.

Nachos!:
Sneaky Dee’s is a cultural landmark in Toronto. Where would we be without it? There’s a reason this is the unofficial home of the school’s1 Nachos Club. Sure the Nachos Club is unofficial at the school, but it’s the greatest part of the school. Also, the Nachos Club is only three members strong, but that hardly matters.

  1. The school who employ me. []

Sandwich, Sandwich, Sandwich will love you, baby!

Adam, Cari and I visited Toronto’s premiere Wilco-themed Sandwich shop for a late lunch today. Sky Blue Sky, located on Bloor Street, west of Bathurst is wonderful. Though it was understaffed today, we had a bit of a delay getting our soup and sandwiches, but the delays were worth it.

I had:

Hoodoo Voodoo (v)
Asian pear with Gouda grilled cheese sandwich. Must be magic how the pear stays firm. We suggest using our own brown bread.

I didn’t take their suggestion and have it brown bread, instead I had it on their vocalized suggestion which was a cheese bread, and it was damn good. It was a bit odd, it seemed very heavy because of the extreme amount of cheese, but also very light because of the pears. Overall, I think it was a bit too heavy, but I still loved it. I’m STILL full from it, five hours later. That’s worth $5.

I also had a sweet potato and corn chowder, which was also fab.

The Millers shared the same soup, but they ordered:

Wishful Thinking (v)
Big, meaty portabella mushrooms teamed nicely with creamy avocado slices and rings of slow cooked onions on your choice of bread.

and:

Dreamer In My Dreams
Slices of roast beef topped with carmelized onions and a slice of sharp cheddar cheese. We prefer to use our Panini to press the sandwich and have the cheese melt over the onions and beef, but we’ll do whatever you dream up.

The Wishful Thinking looked really good, and Cari and Adam both seemed to like it. Adam, however liked his sandwich more, the Dream In His Dreams which to me looked gross and filled with too many dead animals.

I’ll definitely have to return.
