I need suggestions for a place to eat downtown Toronto

Hi everyone, I very rarely go to Toronto but am going to be there shortly for an event and I'd like some suggestions on where to eat. I'll be staying Downtown in the financial district but I really want some amazing ethnic food when I'm there. I don't mind travelling a bit either (within a reasonable distance). I'd love to go for Korean, Vietnamese, Lebanese...anywhere really. Failing that, someplace with wonderful home cooked meals (diner style) would be great too. Any suggestions for me? Inexpensive or moderately priced as well please :).

      The name is Gabardine, if I am not mistaken.

    2. I had a fantastic Burrito, steak and chorizo combo at the new muchoburrito, 263 Queen St. W. Very authentic ingredients and fresh, fresh, fresh! The tender steak pieces had been rubbed with spice and grilled. Perfect toppings from fresh cilantro to peppers, choice of beans, grilled veg, and what a deal! They have just opened so they were offering all Burritos at 50% off. So 2 of us dined for under $9. They have a coupon deal on as well going on. I had just given up on Burritos after a bad experience at Z-teca on King. They give you a choice too if you don't want it too spicy.

        I find mucho burrito inconsistent but ya very tasty!! Lots of lime and cilantro pop! Most of these burrito/wrap places are inconsistent wth time of day and maker. Mucho is at Eaton Centre too.

      2. Queen streetcar to Ossington then walk north for good Vietnamese at Pho Tien Thanh.
        Bloor subway west to Christie for Korean food.

          1. Second the reco for Khao San Road. Would also suggest looking into 93 Harbord (Middle Eastern) and Harlem (Southern US). For more casual meals I'd also suggest RaviSoup (Sri Lankan/Indian twists to soup and sandwiches) for lunch and Arepa for amazing Venezulean sandwiches.
