Lived in Toronto for many years, but now live in Manhattan for quite some time. I used to go back and forth to Toronto quite a lot, but I haven't been back in 2 years. I'll be in TO for a week, beginning this Wed. and I'm looking for some feedback on where to eat now. I'll be staying mostly in the Annex ( where I'll be relying mainly on the TTC to get around) and Scarborough ( where there will be a car) . Some past Toronto favs are The Harbord Room, Mt . Everest, For Indian, Aroma for coffee and sandwiches. Sat will be spent at the EX (is there anything to eat in the food building or near the midway that isn't fried or a carb bomb?) , Monday at a Blue Jays day game- probably looking for a place for dinner- with 2 young kids.
I'm particularly interested in recs for Chinese in Scarborough or the east end. (Charles Yu - any recs? here in New York I either go to Sichuan Gourmet or travel to Flushing with Chinese friends)
In Manhattan some places I'm fond of are Red Rooster, Laconda Verde, Bar Bolud.
