Food Secrets in Etobicoke Commercial Lands

marcharry May 22, 2013 01:27 PM

Etobians and visitors are familiar with the commercial/industrial area roughly bordered by Bloor to Jutland and Kipling to Royal York. If we had a "meat packing" district - this would be it. Cough up your food secrets in "SoBloo" or "NoJut" (it needs a decent name too). Shops and Restaurants...

Burrito Boyz on Jutland
Pasquale Bros. - will make you a great sandwich (if they have bread that day) on Gooderich
The Butcher Shoppe on Shorncliff has retail sales at the back - great meat good deal
A decent hot dog cart on Six Points near Kipling
Dimpfelmeir Bakery retail store on Advance for Rye (freezes well)

what else is good?

    I know I'm gonna get skewered for this but I'm a big fan of Royal Meats on Kipling. I've always enjoyed myself there.

    You can do well eating at European Meats as well. They serve hot dogs, sausages and the like. Mostly using the very items they sell.

    Check out Kingsway Meats on Bloor just east of Jane. My family has been buying kolbasa there for decades.

      Luci on Queensway- for above avg italian at a decent price point (~$35-40pp)...but the service you get is beyond outstanding. The only drawback is the old pple who shoot us dirty looks cause we're wearing jeans (HEAVEN FORBID!).

        There's a hot dog cart @Six Points, is it in the plaza?

        I noticed a food kiosk offering Polish food on Dundas (west of Kipling, near the Taco Bell on Wilmar)

              Drove right by there and didn't notice a Tymeks. Are they open to the public ? Real fermented dills and kraut or vinegar based ?
