Quick lunch at King and Spadina?

Lots of choice, not sure where to go. I'd like something relatively healthy and not over $10 - $12. Any recommends?

  1. Ravisoup on Adelaide, just east of Spadina on the north side.

    1. a bit north but (just north of Richmond), Fusaro's is an Italian lunch counter sort of thing-salads, pastas, panini...all pretty good and in the right range for you.

      I really enjoy the food at the Persian place (i forget the name, it's changed) on the south east corner of Richmond/Spadina.

      Ravisoups is also a great option as mentioned.

      1. I just ate a pesto chicken sandwich from Nook, the basement café. My colon is hurting! So much fat in that sandwich. I thought I'd be safe (the worst ingredient was cheese), but there was loads of fat/mayo in the pesto. I need to find a better option.

            I second SOMA. Not the first place you'd think of for a "relatively healthy" lunch for $10 - $12 but their sandwiches [$8 for today's veggie offer of cheese, pesto and greens] are made fresh on site - I believe the bread is baked there - and the ingredients are absolutely above par. Add an exquisite spicy Mayan hot chocolate made with water [$4] and you have a quick, relatively healthy and decadent lunch. You can do takeout, or sit by the front window or at one of the few tables at the back.

              yum!!! On Spadina just north of Adelaide

              1. re: justsayn

                Third! I stopped by on a whim the other day. It's near my cat's vet and it was the first time I noticed it. Have to say that our food had to be some of the best 'fast food' meal I have ever eaten. The salad was fresh, dressing tasty....I ate it all and most times I take one bite of salad and leave it. I had the chicken kebab. Spice was flavourful but not overpowering. Oh and the fresh baked flat bread was wonderful.

                  Yes to Pamier - equals Bamiyan in my opinion, although I haven't been to Bamiyan in a while. Finally a great Afghan kabob place downtown.

                    For another good Afghan place downtown you can try Kabul Express , 126 Dundas Street East

                  Though I no longer work in the area, I went to Pamier last week and had the veggie wrap. It is almost 10 times busier than a few months back- and one change I noticed that they were not making the bread fresh, as they did before. But still, the veggie wrap was good and I will go again.
