Places to eat and things to do in Toronto

This is for you Nusraat. I didn't have much time to do this (Jill is here). The most important section (food) is the most elaborate.

Places to eat:
  • Over Easy (amazing breakfasts)
    Map

  • Mel's Montreal Deli (good breafast)
    Map

  • Richtree Market (used to be called Marche, really, really good food and cool environment, go for dinner)
    Map
    (there are several locations, but be careful, some of them are not the full restaurant, the one at BCE, listed here, is really nice)

  • Korean Town (One block west of Bathurst and Bloor). I recommend Seoul Restaurant
    (Not sure if I got the address right or if it's called Seoul Sam Mi, the sign is this big orange sign on the south side of Bloor that says Seoul)
    Map

  • Pho Hung (Good Vietnamese)
    Map

  • Goldstone Noodle Restaurant (authentic Hong Kong style nooodle house - very good)
    Map

  • Nataraj (Good Indian)
    Map

  • Greek town

  • Little Italy

  • Sushi (all over the place, but several locations on Bloor between Bathurst and Spadina, some places in uptown have all you can eat sushi!)

  • Caffe Demetre (AMAZING desserts)
    Map

  • Greg's Ice Cream (very rich ice cream)
    Map

  • Bubble tea
    • Ten Ren Tea
    • Tea Shop 168
    • Bubble Tease (I love the fresh and fruity's, which are like healthy slurpees)


Things to do:
  • CN Tower

  • Canada's Wonderland

  • Science Museum

  • Bata Shoe Museum (Jill liked it)

  • Centre Island

  • University of Toronto (ask Kevin for a tour)

  • ROM (Royal Ontario Museum)

  • African Lion Safari (Safari Zoo's are the best - take a rental car ;))

  • Niagara Falls


Places to shop:
  • Eaton Centre

  • Yorkdale

  • Yorkville (posh shopping)

  • Bloor St. between University Ave. and Yonge St. (some flagship and posh stores)

  • Queen St. between University Ave. and Spadina Ave. (Much Music is also there)

  • Square One (in Mississauga)

  • Chinese supermarkets (has good authentic Asian food products in a North American style supermarket! i.e. they're clean, don't smell, and accept credit card)

I'm wondering...what is the name of your plant? It looks like grass.

It's just grass (the non medicinal kind). I don't have a name for it, but you can see more details here: http://veenix.blogspot.com/2006/01/day-9-grass-is-always-greener-on-other.html
