Cheap, TTC-accessible eats in Toronto

grant0 | Sep 26, 2007 08:38 PM

I'm a high-school student in Toronto, and for the first year this year (grade 11), I have spares around my otherwise-ridiculously-short (40 minute) lunch break.

What this means is that I can go out for lunch. My school is around Bloor & Spadina, and as previously discussed on this board several times, there aren't a lot of options other than Pizza Pizza and the wonderful Nataraj around. But it's very close to the subway, and I have almost two hours for lunch...

So my criteria are this: preferably under ten dollars for lunch, fairly fast service or takeout, not too formal, and not a long walk from a subway stop near-ish to Spadina or St. George. I'm willing to make a hike out to anywhere near the subway, but I'd really rather not go to Finch station. So ideally downtown.

As for my food preferences, I'm up for anything, though I'm not a big fan of Asian cuisine (which is a shame because it's often the cheapest food available). I am partial to Indian though, and delis.

Currently my list of places to check out include Harbord Fish & Chips, Dooney's Café, Country Style Hungarian, and Black Camel. I'm looking for some mid-day adventure, so don't feel like you can't send me to some hole-in-the-wall. I'll bring a friend, and a map, so don't worry about me. =P I'd rather go somewhere interesting and unusual than somewhere boring but more convenient.

Sorry to make this so long, but one specific thing I'm looking for: a bakery that does sausage rolls and shepherd's pie and scotch meat pies and that sort of thing. Ideally more TTC-accessible than the intriguing-but-not-TTC-accessible Brick Street Bakery. Thanks so much!
