I live downtown and pretty much walk everywhere, so my chow world is usually confined to south of Bloor, north of Front, West of Yonge, and east of Bathurst, with the occasional TTC trip for more interesting fare.
My father's visiting, and he has a car, so I'd really like to explore J-Town and Corso Italia with him. Especially J-town; if I remember correctly, it has some excellent fishmongers (is that term still used today?) and butchers? Not to mention the "best-est" Jap restaurants in Toronto?
Some recommendations for stores and restaurants for both J-town and Corso Italia would be great. Nothing upscale, just good food at better prices. Thanks!
