Looking for good eats of all kinds in the area. Love to try new places/foods.
I've had good pizza from Jopapa's on Truscott as well as good buns and cakes from Truscott Italian bakery in the same plazza.
Have had great Roti from Calabash on Southdown/QEW.
Wings from Clarkson Pump are good if you like the small fryers.
Turtle Jacks and Fionn McCool's are good options for chains. I'm sure there are more, however I'll have the think.

What are the food stores/restaurants you enjoy in and around Clarkson?

    Peroni's Pizzeria on south sheridan way is pretty close by and they have really good pizza lately. I Casalinga at lakeshore & southdown is really good for italian food. If you're feeling mexican cuisine, a new burrito place just opened up in the same plaza as calabash, they are really good.

      there's spoon and fork thats pretty decent with their AYCE lunch. Service is brutal, but the food is decent for the price.

      across the street there's a pizza place in the strip mall that's suppose to be quite good. i've never been myself. Mickey's is the name i think.

      Momiji a bit further east do a pretty good bento box for lunch.

        There is a Cuban Bakery between Cathraw and Dixie called Antojitos which has great cassava bread, great coffee and empanadas.

          I've tried Antojitos a few times over the last few years and have enjoyed it. I've had the empanadas and a few other baked items.
          I thought this place was Columbian. I don't think it's Cuban. Just looked on Yelp and it appears it's Columbian.

          While at home not feeling well, I came across this thread and had completely forgotten about it.

          PIZZA
          My preferences have changed since my original OP. I have not had Jopapas in over a year as I'm now hooked on Pizza Nova for delivery. Anyone have any other recs for pizza delivery? Mickeys I've had hit and miss pizzas with the deep dish so I no longer order from there. Loved it when it was good, although 3 out of the 5 times we ordered, it was lacking sauce.

          Truscott Italian Bakery is beautiful after the renos. Pastries, bread and coffees are all very good, however the hot table is meh. I work near San Remo though so I know Truscott can do better with quality. Kinda disappointed after the renos actually.

          No longer get roti from Calabash as last two times (few years ago) were a disappointment. I heard they changed owners around that time. Anyone been lately? Have they pulled up their socks? Any other good Caribbean in the area?

          Love the burritos from Chorizo. They do a grilled veggie that I enjoy. Hubby gets the meat and also enjoys them. Had Senior Burrito twice since they opened and won't be back. Did not enjoy the burritos as much as Chorizo.

          Still enjoy wings at Clarkson Pump, Erin Mills Pump or the Pump in Port Credit. Small fryers are still my fave, although I don't eat wings as much as I used to.

          Turtle Jacks is somewhere we end up once a year to see what's changed and usually it's not much.
          Fionn MacCools I like the bar set up when I'm feeling like having a drink. Food is decent.

          Haven't been to Macy's diner. How's is it?

          I noticed a new restaurant called Saffron Foods on Lakeshore. Hyderabadi Indian Food. I want to try this place.

          Also, Pho Le has been opening soon for a very looooong time. Given up hope on this place.

            Le Delice is a wonderful French bakery on Lorne Park Dr in the plaza with Battaglia grocery.
            Their croissants are the best I've had in all the GTA and cookies are amazing! Beautiful deserts..
