Taste of the Danforth
I haven't been in a few years. The last time I remember big crowds and long lines. Is it worth going anymore? Anything worth a try?
The crowds are the same (can't get much bigger, just the attendees are getting bigger) Very little worth trying. Globe Bistro has some good food and I tried it all.
- Pulled beef sandwich $5
- gazpacho $3
- strawberry shortcake $3
- smoothie $3
I usually hit OUZERI for the lamb pies a few times, $3
I was surprised at the lines for other places when there was no line at OUZERI
Auld spot had oysters, but quite a lineup
I live 2 minutes away but will be avoiding this circus for the rest of the weekend. The people I see are just there because the CNE and midway is not open yet.
Yeah I too live in the area. There were some interesting eats. Lots of pulled pork / chicken tacos or sandwiches this year. There was this new place a couple of blocks west of Chester that had porchetta sandwiches with fresh cut porchetta out of the barbecue that looked fantastic. The place has a red sign. Maybe "*something* Cafe".
The crowds weren't terrible for the more interesting places. It was just a long line if you really wanted a Messini gyro or a grilled quail.

Yes that is right.
If you have a calamari craving hit up Diners Thai near Danforth and Chester. It was kind of weird - a Thai place run by what appeared to be Sri Lankans serving calamari. That said, for $5 the biggest calamari portion that I've seen. Sauce was a little too thin to eat properly if you kept the calamari and sauce separate and it was a bit unwieldy but still tasty.
