Lunch / Take-out near Eaton Centre...anything worth having?

Any cuisine, any price, just good food. Is there anything worth eating in this neck of the woods. Take-out preferred.

        Hi Jen, what would you recommend from their menu. I tried the Shoyu Pork noodle bowl today and while I loved the fact it was made to order and piping hot, it was a little on the bland side for me. What's your favouite dish?

        1. re: Breadcrumbs

          I believe I also had the shoyu as well .. it was quite flavourful when I had it, actually. Quite satisfying too.

      2. if time isn't absolutely pressing, walk over to queen and dalhousie and eat at food cabbie. american style classics (cheese steak, carne asada burrito, various daily specials) done pretty damn well at a price that really can't be argued with

        1. Salad King (Thai) - above Foot Locker on Yonge N of Dundas.
          Both restaurant and take-out.

          1. Lunch specials from Ritz Carribean, on Yonge St next to the Jewellery Exchange.

              Thanks for this recommendation marie. I tried the Akee & Saltfish and the flavours were wonderfully traditional. I just wish there had been more fish. I only had one discernible chunk in mine. What do you order? The rotis looked HUGE and I'm wondering if anyone has tried the channa roti? I was really impressed with the cleanliness and friendliness as well. I'll definitely be back there.

                Back to report I tried Ritz's Shrimp Roti on Friday and thought it was terrific. Good sized portion, nicely seasoned and just the right ratio of shrimp to potatoes. Really tasty lunch!

                  Is this the Ritz on Yonge St? Nearest cross street?

                    Yes that's right Et. Yonge & Shuter, beside the ING Cafe.
