Korean dining spots?

Just to verify things, is the Korean Village along Bloor the 'sole' Korean district in the city, or are there any more like them in the neighbouring boroughs? (Markham, Scarborough, etc.)

Korean dining spots?

Hey, I was just interested if anyone can recommend any decent Korean restaurants in the Toronto. (once and for all!) Most that I've browsed through seems to incorporate Japanese and/or sushi menus (not that there's anything wrong with that), so I'm all the more confused as to what passes for authentic Korean fare in the city. Suggestions?

Betel nut information

Either way, I only became more interested as more bizarre stories about of them sporuted up. So, would anyone a good place where I could obtain any? I have no idea what they look like, for that matter.

Chinese take-out boxes: any restos have them?

Hey thanks for the replies everyone. I'll be sure to check out these places, and for the record, they're for a side project, though I wouldn't mind investigating the art/decor stores :p

Chinese take-out boxes: any restos have them?

Hi, I was just wondering if there were any Chinese eateries in Toronto that might carry those small take-out boxes or food containers with the metal ring that are sometimes seen in the movies. I know that these things are pretty much defunct, but just the other week when I was on the subway I saw two guys noshing out of one of them, clear as day (be this a promotional item, I don't know..) There are several other posts similiar to this, but I couldn't find any local information. Any advice? BTW this is my first post, please help!
