Where to eat within walking distance of Jarvis & Wellesley

Elfinn Nov 18, 2010 10:02 AM

Looking for good food, with vegetarian options within walking distance (or a quick drive) from Jarvis & Wellesley . Teenagers with us, so bright & funky, but not too noisy! Maybe all you can eat sushi or good noodles or something of that ilk?

    Rashnaa is on Wellesley just East of Parliament. Spicy, South Indian/Sri Lankan food. Plenty of veg options. Good dosas and kothu roti.

      I used to live at that intersection, your best bet is to head to the village. Maybe Ginger? If you venture over to yonge there are some sushi convayer belt places that aren't AYCE but are kind of fun.
      It's not that far of a drive to spadina and chinatown if that's what youre looking for, or up to bloor for that matter....

        I like Fire on the East Side which is about five mins north at 6 Gloucester Street. Veg option and a somewhat cool vibe.

          Though it's not sushi/noodles, how about Hair of the Dog? http://www.hairofthedogpub.ca/

            Fire on the East Side is incredibly noisy. Hair of the Dog is dark. Both things the OP is attempting to avoid.

            Rashnaa seems to fit most requirements. Not funky, but whaddaya gonna do

              I don't fine Fire on the East Side noise at all.

              Sushi Supreme at Yonge and Wellesley. Not AYCE but cheap, fresh and really really good.

                Not AYCE sushi, but there are a few izakaya options within walking distance: Koyoi, Kokoni and if you can get in - Guu. You can probably find enough veg options.

                  Guu is pretty hopeless for vegetarians, even those who are "flexible" on things that do not contain meat but may come into contact with it. It'll only work for the people who are willing to pick out all the meat or who are willing to make seafood exceptions, but the latter aren't vegetarian at all.

                  Try The Blake House one block south at Jarvis/Maitland. Good food, great owner and nice vibe.
