Has anybody been here (Dundas and Elizabeth Streets, Toronto) recently ? If so what do you recommend on the menu?
Thanks for the reply. It was closed today when I was downtown so it wasn't an option anyway so we went to Hong Shing. Although the food was edible (barely) at Hong Shing (we had chili chicken and General Tso Chicken) it certainly wouldn't be worth a return trip...unless, of course, everything else is closed in the area!
i agree with Olivia...E-On is a kinda cool relic of sorts, totally unpretentious in the extreme - it won't win any glamour prize...its basically in a semi-basement and lots of steam and general hussle and bustle...the food is actually pretty good..and for the price is great. Was a regular lunch spot for me for a while when working nearby - Put it this way, if E-ON were on the Ossington strip it would be hip as all hell. Its like a flashback to the 50's in a grungy kinda way...i'd say 80% of the folks who eat there are chinese.., decor hasn't changed since god knows when, like olivia said it aint Lai Wah Heen...but i like it.
Haven't been there for a while, I intend to revisit the haunt and review for chow. IMHO....if there were a thread that was "really cheap, semi-scuzzy basement gems with a 1950s aura" it would be real high on the list.
