    Can't vouch for its quality but I've had it at a mom and pop shop on the east side of Duncan, just south of Queen, between the Subway and the Lebanese place. Sorry but I can't remember the name of the place.

      I've had it at a place called ABC in mississauga - its a slightly sketchy sheesha lounge off of eglinton and tomken. I wouldn't call their koshari great, but it might satisfy a craving. This toronto star article might point you in the right direction too: http://www.thestar.com/entertainment/...

        The place mentioned south of Queen on Duncan is called Baba Geddo and I can highly recommend it. I spent a month in Egypt years ago and practically lived on koshari while I was there. It's always been one of my favourite fast foods from my travel adventures. I never knew where to find it here in Toronto but found this post a couple days ago and made a special trip downtown to check it out. It was like a trip back in time for me, exactly as I remembered it and so, so good. Now if I could only find good laksa in Toronto : )

          Glad you liked the koshari. For laksa, I like Hawker Bar on Ossington.

            I too had the koshari at Baba Geddo (for the first time) and loved it. Pure comfort food and the old woman who made it was very nice.
