College/Spadina chow?

I live in the area, and have a couple of favourites, but as I read other posts about nice places elsewhere, I'm wondering if I'm missing anything in this neighbourhood.

    La palette on Agusta is quite good. I've had the bison cheeks not to long ago which was excellent.

    Or if you like dirty Chinese try the Kom Jug Yuen on Spadina.

      I think it would help if you indicated your current favorites as a reference point.

        This may be stating the obvious, but you are at smoked meat central with Caplansky's and Goldin's at Free Times Cafe.

        And of course, you are a couple of blocks from Kensington Market and all the goodies there.

            Ooh, yes, Negroni for sure! And a couple blocks further is it's sister restaurant, Sidecar.

            Aunties and Uncles on Lippincott for breakfast / brunch.
            Swatow on Spadina for a good Chinese greasy spoon
            Big Fat Burrito on Augusta - goes without saying
            Manic Coffee on College for an amazing cafe latte
            Caldense Bakery at Palmerston and Dundas for the best bread ever (Pada buns or Pao Caseiro)
            Sarah's Shawarma at Bloor and Brunswick - For a great, cheap, open late snack.

              Sarah's is no where near college and spadina!

              Big fat burrito is boring.

              I went to the young thai on college at spadina last night for a snack, the tom ka gai was quite good.
