Visitors need dining advice

vdoucette Jan 31, 2011 03:28 AM

My wife and I will be visiting Toronto the first weekend of March. We've only been there once before, in 2001.

We'll be staying at a hotel near the North York Center subway station, and attending an event Saturday night at Massey Hall.

We like to eat: ethnic, spicy, interesting. We want to avoid hotel food. We won't have a lot of time to explore, but want to make the most of it.

What should we eat that is an easy walk (we're a bit hobbled) from the Yonge-University-
spadia line?

    Your hotel is in the heart of uptown Korean Town. I would suggest any of the following....

    Mat Na Son
    Oh Geul Boh Geul
    Dumpling King - Chinese dumplings

    and a short bus ride away...

    Cho Sun Ok
    Seoul House - they use charcoal for their bbq

    Oh Geul Boh Geul
    5320 Yonge St, Toronto, ON M2N5P9, CA

    7388 Yonge St, Vaughan, ON L4J, CA

    Seoul House
    180 Steeles W, Thornhill, ON L4J1A1, CA

    Cho Sun Ok
    7353 Yonge St, Markham, ON L3T, CA

    Dumpling King
    15 Northtown Way, Toronto, ON , CA
