Weeknight dinner North of Eglinton

It's one or two blocks south of Eglinton, but Zucca is a good fit for what you're looking for

Luminato 1000 tastes of Toronto at the distillery

+1 for Milagro's tacos! Also really enjoyed Queen Margherita Pizza's personal pizza. Southern Accent's po boys were quite tasty as well and dufflet had a good deal with a brownie and personal berry crumble for 1 ticket.

Thought the set up was nice although a little confusing, thankfully they learned from last year that people need seating and set up a couple large tables to enjoy the meals.

Overall I thought it was a successful event

Yogourt (machine type) places in midtown..

Im a big fan of yoyos at Bloor and Spadina, not exactly midtown, but worth it.

Mapo Tofu in Chinatown

I always enjoy the mapo tofu at Swatow. They make it vegetarian no problem, just ask for no meat in it. Enjoy!

Yogurty's Froyo - new Avenue Road location

I've been recently. It's good, not much different from any of the other big names like menchies or yoyos. Same deal with the self serve and its good. Overall it's a nice addition to the neighborhood.

What's not to miss in toronto?

Definitely go to Black Camel. Best sandwich in Toronto, a great place for a lunch. It's got barbecue style sandwiches but is unique and have yet to hear of any other place like it. Toronto has so many great food places to offer and many of the recommendations already made on this thread are great, you will be happy with any of them. Personally, I wouldnt miss Black Camel if I had the chance to go.

Thai Country Kitchen-- Delicious Surprise!

The other week I was walking around the Spadina and College area looking for lunch and stumbled upon a recent opening, Thai Country Kitchen. The enticing purple exterior led me in to check out the menu. The inside was very humble and didnt seem to impress, however the menu is filled with the Thai dishes that you would expect at the average Thai place, but also has some different, more authentic dishes so I decided to give it a try. Many of the dishes sounded great, I opted for the Pad Si-Ew, a wonderful thick rice noodle dish with egg, chinese broccoli and I had it with chicken, in a wonderful sweet soy sauce. A big plate of noodles steaming noodles came out and they were so delicious I gobbled it up in minutes. The dish so was so flavorful, fresh and just good quality all around. The spring roll was nice and light and not too oily. The bill came and was around 8 or 9 dollars tax included, and it was included with the pleasant surprise of a small desert. I dont know what it's called but it tasted just like simple fried dough with some honey. Again, not too oily and a nice sweet hint to finish of a satisfying lunch.

I enjoyed my first trip to Thai Country Kitchen so much that I went back a week later to try some of their other dishes. Since my first trip, I have resisted the urge to keep ordering the Pad Si-Ew (it was that good) and have been able to try many of their dishes such as the appetizers satay, curry puff (which they describe as a Thai samosa) as well as their mango and green papaya salads. The mains yellow curry, Pad Woo-Sen (thin glass noodle dish), cashew chicken, Basil chicken and the eggplant tofu. Everything there I try, I love.

Im happy I tried this place despite it's lack of decor. I think it is much like flip toss thai kitchen. Both are committed to giving fresh, flavorful, authentic Thai food at both high quality and great quantity for a remarkably reasonable price. Although Thai Country Kitchen has a couple more unique dishes I have yet to find at other thai places. If you're in the Spadina and College area definitely stop in and try this place, you'll leave with a satisfied stomach and a smile.
