Thai food to suit a student budget...
My all time favorite is
a Thai restaurant that is a Toronto institution with the university crowd
and alumni. It's called Salad King
and it's located one block north of the Eaton Centre (Yonge and Dundas)
on Gould Street off of Yonge Street. The food is tasty and inexpensive
and served at communal, brushed-metal tables. If you're looking for a
quieter setting just go upstairs to Linda's -- same food in a more upscale
setting. Salad King serves the best Phad Thai ($7.50) I have every tasted
in my travels.
Delicious lunch in historical surroundings...
Combine some history and a delicious lunch by dining at the Law
Society of Upper Canada's Dining Room at Osgoode Hall
Court House, the home of the Ontario Court of Appeal. Despite the name,
it's open to the public, located in the downtown core, situated in a beautiful
old room with stained glass, wood floors and chandeliers, and one of the
best lunch deals in town.
Fabrics, fabrics, fabrics...
The best fabric buying experience
in Toronto that I know of is Designer Fabrics
on Queen St. W. near Dufferin. It is a huge shop offering one-of-a- kind
fabrics, upholstery materials and trims. You'll actually find this place
is like a textile museum but of course here you can buy any of the goodies.
I make a trip to Toronto a couple of times a year to shop there. I have
sent numerous women over the years to look for that certain fabric for
their furniture and clothing and they are simply blown away by the place.There
are always some great deals to consider but it is the handmade silks,
imported brocades and exotic fringes that make it more than just a shopping
