Timothy's Tandoori Chicken
delivers exceptional Indian food. I highly recommend the Samosas,
Chicken Makni (it is similar to butter chicken and is my favorite),
the Tandoori Chicken, the Timothy's Briyani and the Vegetarian Eggplant.

The Daily Sushi Japanese Restaurant has wonderful fresh sushi, sashimi
and tempura at very reasonable prices. The miso soup and teriyaki
are great and so are the udon noodle dishes. The restaurant is located
right next door to the Carlton Cineplex Odeon theatre at Young and
Carlton making it a great choice for picking up dinner after a movie
downtown. 20 Carlton St. Tel: 977-4333

Two tips for solo diners...
Eating alone? A perfect way to have company is to go to Hiro Sushi
on King Street East and to sit at the counter. Singles certainly
won't feel out of place here. Ask the chef for whatever "is good"
that day. You'll be guaranteed some of the best sushi anywhere.
Bring something terrific back to your hotel and relax. I recommend
the "steak sandwiches to go" from Sotto Voce at 595 College Street,
the wine bar attached to Gian Carlo Restaurant. Pick up a bottle
of wine along the way and you're all set.

Inexpensive but nutritious fast food
I'd like to recommend Pita Break situated on Yonge Street just a
few doors north of Wellsley. They make the most amazing pita breads
-- the huge spongy kind - in about a dozen different flavours. My
faves are the cinnamon raisin, pumpernickel, oregano, and sun-dried
tomato. Get one filled with home-made falafel, grilled chicken breast
or scrumptious babaganoush. All in all, an easy, inexpensive hotel-room
picnic for the woman traveller who's just wants to put her feet
up at the end of the day.

Bagels, bagels, bagels...
You don't have to be Jewish to love the Harbord Bakery. This spot
has everything you could want - smoked salmon and cream cheese to
go with your bagels - cheese danishes to die for - as well as an
excellent selection of salads, quiches and empanadas all produced
by the staff. Perfect for hotel room snacking. 115 Harbord Street

Terrific Chinese Take-Away at Budget
Young Sing pastry shop on 22 Baldwin Avenue is not far from the
Art Gallery of Ontario and it is great for take-out. They specialize
in Chinese bun sandwiches filled with veggies, curried beef or tofu.
For dessert you must try their fresh custard tarts or coconut goodies.

Forty calorie dessert in a cone...
If you're a lactose intolerent Journeywoman or simply trying to
watch your fat intake, do I have a treat for you! A great 40 calorie
($2.00) ice-cream is available at a stand called Sin Without Guilt
located on Yorkville Avenue between Avenue Road and Bay Street.
The ice cream is truly delicious -- the flavors change every day.
My favorite to date is peanut butter but the chocolate runs a pretty
close second. This venue closes in colder weather so check it out
before the temperature starts dropping.
