I'm a sucker for inexpensive lunches/dinners so I thought I'd post my recent favs:
El Trompo, mexican restaurant 2 blocks S. of College on Augusta St. in Kensington market, I order the pork tacos with pineapple (I can't remember the name),
Jumbo Empanadas, chilean cuisine also on Augusta just S. of El Trompo, I like the beef empanadas (has a few black olives and raisins, comes with spicy cut salsa),
Rasoe Indian Kitchen a few doors W of Spadina on Richmond St. (I like the combo plate on which you can choose any 3 dishes off of the menu, it comes with fragrant rice and naan)
Vicky's Thai, on Roncesvailles N. of Howard Park, great Pad Thai.
All of these meals are approximately $5 to $10 dollars.
