eats near bus depot

Greetings, Torontonians! I come (generally in peace, though sometimes kinda crankily) often by bus to your fair city. Where to grab a bite before and after the long ride?

  1. You are close to Mercatto at College and Elizabeth. Reasonably priced with some decent wines. There's a new dim sum spot on Bay called the Crown Princess that's getting good reviews although I haven't been. W Burger Bar is a short walk away at Yonge and College. And for cheap and cheerful Chinese there is Yueh Tung at Elizabeth and Dundas.

    Hope this helps before or after those bus rides :)

      thank you very much, SWS!

    2. There is also a Big Fat Burrito on Dundas. I believe it's just west of the station. I like the pulled pork/yam combo, although I think you have to ask specifically for it as they don't come listed together on the menu. I haven't tried any other kinds.

        mm, burritos. hard to find here in montreal.

        1. re: bakersdelight

          It's showing the one on Augusta, as there is more then one location. But the actual address is 112 Dundas Street West.

            If you like burritos, you're also only a couple of blocks from Chipotle. I don't know if this U.S. chain has made it to Montreal yet, but it's very good, if a bit pricey. Don't let the chain status turn you off, as they use hormone-free meat and make everything fresh in the store (and no, they are not owned by McDonald's). Get the carnitas burrito. :)

        2. Just cut down to Dundas and walk west about a block and you'll find Kenzo Ramen. Some of the best ramen options in the city, I'm partial to the tonkotsu myself. http://www.kenzoramen.ca/

          1. Japango is near by, for better than average sushi.

              1. You're not terribly far from Queen and Beaver, for a pint and some shmancy pub grub in a cosy setting.

                  from the q & b menu: "Soused halibut and samphire"!
                  gotta love the brits.

                2. There's an excellent shawarma joint on the west side of Dundas about 1/2 block south of University (maybe a five minute walk from the bus depot). Can't remember the name. Chicken shawarma (pita or platter) is pretty much all they do, but they do a damn fine job.

                    thanks, somewhere4! i'll check it out. in next wed.

                    1. re: bakersdelight

                      You're welcome. But I messed up the coordinates. Try SOUTH side of Dundas, 1/2 block EAST of University.

                      1. re: somewhere4

                        oh, 1/2 block east. I went to one 2 blocks east of University on Dundas, It's a pizza joint on one side. big fluorescent-lit place. but the chicken shwarma was amazing!

                        1. re: bakersdelight

                          name please? :D

                          1. re: ekim256

                            i'll have to check next time! you go up some stairs outside, a big bright place right on the corner.

                  2. Not cheap necessarily but Rodney's by Bay is probably a 10 minute walk (head south on Bay just south of Queen to Temeperance). They do a great lobster roll.
