Downtown Toronto Challenge! - Cheap Snacks ($3 and under preferred)
So I find myself between lunch and dinner time every day at work hankering for a snack. I don't want to eat a big meal cause that would spoil dinner.
I find myself with the same choices all the time. Hot Dog/Sausage. Ice cream. Patty. Bring my own instant noodles.
I'm near Skydome so walking to Queen or King is easy. If I was closer to where I live I'd totally go for my favourite Mutton Rolls but I don't know anyone who sells those close by.
Any suggestions as to what cheap snacks I should try?
if you don't mide a little bit more of a walk, you can go to alberts real jamaican foods and queen and bathurst and get a couple of doubles. they are $1.50 each and i think that they are the best doubles in the city. or if you want to do a short walk up to china town you can choose from a variety of siagon sub shops for $1.50-$2.00. furama bakery in china town has some good sweet snacks for cheap too (try the taro buns)
There's also a Furama bakery under First Canadian Place or Urban bakery in Metro Hall for those tasty chinese buns.
Your challenge is a worthy one, unfortunately I don't know the area of your workplace very well.
Outside that area, I would suggest Coconut Grove (Dundas & University), Kim Moon (Dundas & Spadina), Yung Sing (Baldwin), the aforementioned Banh Mi shops, Chinese Traditional Buns (Dundas & Spadina), Mother's Dumplings (Huron & Dundas).
