The new downtown $10 challenge
I'm short of ideas for what to have for dinner tonight. I'm on a tight budget these days so I'm trying to keep the meal at around $10, tax and where applicable, tip included. I know this topic has been covered before but given the fluctuation in the restaurant industry because of the economy, I thought it would be wise to start fresh.
For my purposes, should be either downtown or not far from a subway stop, any kind of cuisine is fine, fast food is excluded, and I don't want something that's just cheap, but otherwise dreck.
So far, my contenders are;
Gandhi Roti (Indian at Queen/Bathurst)
Yummy BBQ (Korean at Bloor/Bathurst)
Leila (Middle Eastern at Bloor/Bathurst)
Bamiyan Kabob (Afghan on Overlea in East York) bit more of a trek but well worth it.
Any other ideas?
- Pho Hung... I think you could get a bowl of soup for $10-ish.
- Jumbo Empanads (Kensington)
- Alexandros (gyro!)... and great people watching on the Danforth
if you're in the neighbourhood for gandhi, you can walk around the corner of bathurst for a burrito at johnny bananas
Collegiate Lunch has a homeburger with bacon and grated cheese, fries, and a drink for $7. Adding an old fashioned shake would keep it under $10.
An easy trek from the Danforth line.

Excellent fish and chips at Olde Yorke on Laird is about $8 or so (not really near a subway, though).
