I need good food in the Midland & Kingston Rd., Toronto [Moved from Canada board]

  1. My mom swears by Vincent's Spot. Ikky Sushi is pretty good as well. Both are on the north side of Kingston, a little W of Midland. I believe there is a decent Fish n' Chips on that block as well. Maybe even some good West Indian food.

      Many people swaer by Duckworth's Fish and Chips (kingston Rd. just west of Midland) but I've found them to be average. The Tara Inn has pretty good pub grub and the Bo Peep is a reliable and clean family restaurant. Many friends claim the Cozy Hungarian is quite good but I have yet to go there.

        "thenurse" says Ikki Sushi is "pretty good" but I disagree. I've avoided it since having very substandard food there as Japanese restaurants go. But I second the recommendation of other posters for the Bo Peep, which serves substantial old-fashioned food to a mostly older crowd; and definitely agree about the excellence of JJJ Jerk for their Caribbean food - delicious! If you don't mind driving a few stoplights west for Indian takeout dishes, you can't beat Katyani Indian Cuisine at 1433 Kingston Road on the south side, just west of Warden.

        1. re: Bob Catt

          Ikki Sushi is consistently the worst Japanese food I've had in Toronto (AYCE buffets excepted), and I've had the misfortune of eating there many, many times.

          I can second Nama's and Zen, although the latter is pricy.

          The Veal Marsala and the Pepper Steak are wonderful at Vincent's and mom loves the duck but you have to pre-order that dish a few days before going.

          Also if you don't mind Travelling a tad, the Fish and chips at By the Bluffs which is just past McCowan is much better and they serve a mean greasy spoon style breakfast.

          The Riveria pizzarria used to have also good Veal Parma, and the side pasta is much better than the old Bo Peep.

        3. I second Vincent's Spot. Haven't been there for a few years but always had a good experience there, tasty food and nice warm service. Here's a thread with a more recent comment -

          2496 Kingston Rd, Toronto, ON M1N1V3, CA

          1. Can you give an idea of what you like to eat? Scarborough may not be foodie heaven, but a little narrowing down would help.

            1. JJJ Jerk on Kingston Road across from the No Frills has fantastic roti. I've only been to Nama's Indian restaurant (same block) once, but it was very good too.

                The jerk chicken is very tasty-moist too. Avoid at all costs the deep fried dumplings and batter fried "fish"drgrb

              2. Zen Sushi, at 2803 Eglinton, is excellent!

                  I second Zen if you like ultra fresh sushi.

                  1. re: ace123

                    Zen is very good but a little pricey as well. For take out, on-a -You's (the owner' name is Donahe) Jerk Chick in very good...cooks it the traditional way in an oil drum style BBQ in front of his store....very good. Friends also rave about the newly open Carribbean Wave at Morningside and Milner (in the plaze next to the Home Depot).

                      Sorry jerk restaurant is Don-a-yous not On-a-yous
