This is the brief: 2 of my closest friends just returned from a month in Hong Kong and have invited partner & i to dinner tommorow night. They know i am a wannabe-foodie so they have put the resto choice on me. Obviously while I would love to go for Chinese food, they were in HK so that's out. So is sushi, viet, and all other Asian cuisine. The trouble is partner and i eat mostly Asian food!! (lol) We need somewhere young, good-great food, a bit noisier (b/c we'll be a bit noisy ourselves) mid-price range. We are willing to ttc basically anywhere. Somewhere with character and not dressy, but not cheap eats either. My gfs aren't that adventurous when it comes to ethnic food so altho Ethiopian and Peruvian would be great, those wouldn't be optimum choices. Thinking college/queen street area but leslieville/yonge&eglington/front street are just as good. if the food is organically minded or locally sourced that is a plus but not required.
I appreciate ANY and ALL recommends!
