Chow at Ossington/Dundas

On Thursday night, I have an event in the Dundas/Ossington area and was wondering if there were any decent or Chow-worthy places to grab dinner in the area?

Not looking for anything fancy as I'm headed to the Dakota Tavern for a friend's show that evening.

      because it's really not very good at all.

      my pick would be to go north towards the bloor area for ethiopian or a bit more west from ossington for pho phuong (though the least delicious but still rather tasty dish there is pho!).

    2. There are a couple of pho places down Ossington, including Golden Turtle.

        I vote for Golden Turtle. Cheap, quick and tasty.

          The food is better at TienThanh down the street, imo at least.

          Decor is very bare bones, even more so than Golden Turtle.

            Entirely possible. I just love that GT has vegetarian pho.

              They're both good, but I did enjoy my meal at TienThanh a bit more. Dang, now I must go out in that area again some time soon, the craving for good Vietnamese food is setting in.

          1. I've been to Foxly and Pizza Libretto and enjoyed both. However, neither place takes reservation so depending on the time you'll be eating there may be a long wait.

            1. Head a little east to Black Hoof.

                Black Hoof is a great place! However, you have to really be into meat, you have to be ok with a very small menu and willing to wait. It is always packed and it is a small space. On the Thursnight, it wait could be a rather long time.
