for $40 where would you eat

Looking for a place where I can get a mid priced meal. Am in need of a good treat after a difficult week.

- downtown location is ideal
- something other than the usual (the usual for me is pan Asian, Greek, vegetarian)
- usually love places like Foccacia

  1. Hair of the Dog is a good bet in my book. If you're there alone, you can comfortably eat at the bar, or a quiet table. Great food, will definitely be <$40

    1. I would fill my face at Japango with spicy makis.
      Coco Lezzones in little italy.
      Tutti Matti is pretty great.
      You could probably get in and out of Brassaii fully satisfied for $40.00.
      Awesome comfort food not near 40 would be Shanghai Cowgirl.

      1. Bar menu at Trevor. Beef tartare tacos ($9), asiago mac-and-cheese ($9), nachos with braised beef cheeks, big salads (possibly on the restaurant menu, but you can order from either one), etc. Big flavours, small prices.

        Terroni, Queen and Manning, Victoria and Richmond, Yonge and St. Clair. Awesome thin-crust pizzas with toppings you can really taste, great calamari salad.

        Salad King, Gould, just east of Yonge. Best cheap Thai in town.

        1. its not downtown but i'd go for Tabule-

          1. Go for an indian buffet. For about 12.00 you can eat all you want. Siddartha on queen and bathurst is great....but there are many others if you look there was a recent thread on this.

              Hi pancake...I too love Siddartha, but it is actually on King at bathurst.

                Have either of you tried the location on Gerrard? Is it of the same quality?

                1. re: hungryabbey

                  I've only ever been to the Siddhartha on Gerrard, and it's quite good.

                  Though, my favourite Indian buffet in Toronto is still Little India at Queen & Duncan.

                  1. re: xtal

                    is Siddhartha's buffet just lunch or dinner too??

                    1. re: hungryabbey

                      Dinner too.

                      But I certainly would not have included it in this posting for a 40 treat meal after a hard week.

                      Great food in a cafeteria atmosphere.

                    I actually just tried their lunch buffet there! It's pretty good!
