Food Secrets in Etobicoke Commercial Lands

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?

  1. Just got back from a supply run to Pasquales and the Butcher Shoppe.

    Others often noted :
    North Fish 23 Six Points
    European Quality Meats 16 Jutland
    The Musket (a good Dive) 40 Advance

    Just near by:
    Brandt Meats 1878 Mattawa Avenue
    Paul+Sandys BBQ 4925 Dundas Street West
    Kingsway Fish + Chips 3060 Bloor Street West
    and of course Sushi Kaji 860 The Queensway

    Start a Google Maps 'My Places'. Makes it easier to plan your outings and avoid missing one on your "To Do" list when traveling around...

    1. how about these..

      Tymeks - 9 Advance Road (great pickles n kraut)
      Blue Danube Sausage House - 24 Chauncey Avenue

        1. re: eppicurious

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

          1. re: PoppiYYZ

            yes they are open to the public and the stuff is fermented on the premises you can get the pickles regular or hot as well

      1. 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)

        1. 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!).

          1. 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.
