I have been working "out here" for about 8 months now. Yes, please have pity.
I have two recommendations for those looking for good eats around Scarborough:
1) Vietnam Noodle Star @ 4188 Finch Ave. E Unit 2
Authentic and delicious Vietnamese food. Can be packed over lunch. Haven't been for dinner. Excellent Pho and curry chicken.
2) A Taste of Manchester
Recently opened in the plaza at Warden / Eglinton. Carribean food. This is for a quick meal not a sitdown delight although there are a few tables. I've had the jerk chicken with peas and rice which was quite good and today I had a chicken roti which wasn't bad though it definitely needed the hot sauce that I added.
