Good places to eat in Sudbury

Also...there is FINALLY a Thai restaurant opening up on Notre Dame where Little India used to be! I can't wait.

Good places to eat in Sudbury

I thought I'd list some good restaurants in Sudbury, in case anyone's passing through. There is some good chow here.

A must-try is a porchetta sandwich from the Regency Bakery. Porchetta is a lovely slow-roasted spiced pork from Italy that for some reason has become huge in Sudbury. You can find the bakery on Regent street behind Wendy's. You pick a bun, then hand it to the deli counter to load it up with meat.

For a nice fun celebration-type meal try Respect is Burning, an Italian bistro hotspot downtown on durham Street. It's festive and a bit loud. There are some yummy pastas and dishes like veal and ribs, and a delicious pear-pancetta slad with cashews.. It's where Sudbury's emerging yuppie class likes to hang.

There's a Greek restaurant that is now under Vietnamese ownership that has a simple but delicious Vietnamese menu. It's called Stelio's, on Barrydowne just south of Lasalle (where the New Sudbury Mall is).

There's also a pan-Asian place on Lasalle called Cafe Korea that has barbeques on the table. The bulgogi is a little expensive but pretty tasty.

And there's a Mexican place called Casa Mexicana that has 2 branches - one downtown on Elm, near the farmer's market, and the other on Lasalle. It's simple but pretty yummy, especially the chicken mole.

And if you just want a coffee or something, there are 2 places in town I really like - books and Beans on Durham is a friendly cozy kind of place where everyone knows your names, and they have some nice sandwiches like hummous, cheddar and veggies on ciabatta.
The Old Rock Roastery near the fire station has a lot of fair trade beans and some locally made creamy sweet treats (and firefighters like to hang out there, enough said).
