Student Foodies' Toronto Weekend

So we're three student foodies about to embark on our 3 day odyssey into the heart of T-town.
Being foodies above all else, the pursuit of the revelatory meal will be our goal for the trip. That being said, we're students, and have to pick accordingly. We'll definitely hit up some the cheaper Asian places - thinking Chinese Traditional Bun and Khmer Thai - and of course the St. Lawrence Market, but would like one or two 'higher end' experiences. I've heard good things about Globe Bistro and Nota Bene, but then the ones that turn up on countless "Best of" lists aren't always aimed at our demographic. If anyone has a better suggestion, well, guys, have at please!

Thanks 'hounds!

  1. I would replace Khmer Thai with Sukhothai without hesitation.

    For finer dining what would your budget be?

      1. don't forget Mother's dumplings, veal sandwich at Mustachio's (St Lawrence market), possibly Sidecar (easy on the wallet on weekdays), Negroni, possibly Utopia Cafe, Manpuku (unless you are from Japan), Pizza Libretto!

        1. For a nice evening meal I'd recommend Politica. A really great neighbourhood resto just south of Queen West. They don't turn tables, it's a tiny place and no attitude so they won't like treat you like "students." You'll have a meal you won't regret and feel like a local. Then you can stroll up to Queen and hit that scene afterward...

          1. You're aware Khmer Thai is a Cambodian restaurant, right?
