Pantheon (Greektown Toronto)
Went here for Allison's
birthday since she wanted Greek food. Randomly picked a restaurant that
neither of us had been to before and one that had somewhat of a line.
food was delicious. We got the chicken and pork tenderloin souvlaki.
Both of which were surprisingly tender. I don't think I've ever had
souvlaki that wasn't very tough. I feel like I have been missing out
all this time!
Dinner comes with complimentary bread
(which we got refills on) and it even came with a free slice of cake!
We got the small versions which I didn't feel was enough for me, but
seemed fine for Allison. I would return!
Greg's Ice Cream (Bloor / Spadina)
small ice cream shop located on the southwest corner of Bloor and
Spadina. Best known for their roast marshmellow ice cream. Yes,
roasted marshmellow. I have successfully converted 2 people to this
flavor, but I still like to try some of their other flavours. They also
have a shop in the Distillery District. I'd recommend stopping by to
give this a try if you are in the area.
Jelly Modern Doughnuts (College / Spadina)
slight west of Spadina is Jelly Modern Doughnuts. We stopped by as we
were walking to Castle Board Game Cafe for a snack. Very bright and
open area. Their doughnuts have won some awards although I can't really
recall any major doughnuts shops here. They come in two sizes, a small
and a large. I forget what they called them, but basically your
typical doughnut (small) and a pretty large doughnut (large).
small was $2.50 each and I don't recall the price of the large. At
this price, I think it is a bit much, although they were pretty tasty.
I'm not sure I would return due to the price.
Lee Garden (Spadina)
Chinese restaurant in Chinatown. Well known about the locals and
winning a lot of awards (you can see the list on their wall) it is a
good Chinese restaurant.
We had 6 dishes and they were
all pretty good. Portions were good, everything came out quick and hot
as expected. Food seems a bit expensive for what we got, but everything
tasted good, so it isn't a big deal. Came out to roughly $100 after
tax/tip for everything.
I have been here a few times
within the past year and I have never been disappointed and I would
return. Although do make sure they have what you want because I have
come here a few times and had a few items sold out.
