5th mini mall - Etobicoke
I've recently moved to the Mimico area and have heard about the stalls at the 5th mini mall. Sounds intriguing. Except that I don't quite know where this is.
Does it still exist? I have a vague idea that it's near Lakeshore/Islington...
Yup, it's still there...corner of 5th and Lakeshore between Islington and Royal York. Haven't been there in ages because last time I was disappointed by the microscopic amount of meat in the tamales. Also, the coffee at Bird 'n' Beans is better than the Latte place downstairs.
re: Food Tourist
thanks for the response, FT. I love Birds and Beans! My old housemate has played jazz there on Sundays for some time and used to bring home those yummy beans. So nice that now that I'm just around the corner. Their Sumatra is wonderful.
Can you tell me a little about what this little mini mall is about? There are various food vendors? Is it open just on weekends or during the week too?
As far as I can tell, there's only one Latin food vendor at the very front and the rest are hair salons, etc. It's not worth a special trip unless you are walking or driving by anyway. It's open all week long just like the other nearby businesses. The downstairs is a tiny but spa-like cafe.
