check out Nomad on richmond for sure and then walk west along queen from Spadina. Lots of great shops and food... sydney's, klaxon howl, the other nomad, fred perry, oliver spencer, jonathan and olivia. all good spots for shopping.

hemingways has great wings and cheap beer, sneaky dees is a staple for beer and tex mex food and some decent shows.

best to avoid yonge st and queen between yonge and spadina... except for the silver snail if you like comics...

Yeah, I'm sayin' Sake Sushi at Bloor and Christie is ideal. Place is dirt cheap/awesome

if you're in that area and you want the best, most authentic korean food you could possibly get (outside of hitting the damn peninsula), Buk Chang Dong Soon To Fu (the orange restaurant across the street from Clinton's) is a the goddamn Mecca of home-cooked Korean. Plus beer is like $3.50 a bottle. Highly recommend a look-out.

I think you should just mention it.

And while I love Sake Sushi, the best cheap sushi in the city is at Sushi Couture.

Anyone been to Hiro sushi on King? Probably my favourite sushi in the city *Waits to be yelled at by sushi experts*

buk chang is legit. i hit up the yonge one quite a bit. another good spot for korean around north york is Song Cook's @ yonge/steeles.. the place is kinda hidden in the plaza but it's amazingly clean (and they play movies on wall mounted LCDs) and the food is really good. super legit table top cooking.

never tried hiro but i hear its decent.

i like zen in scarborough.. never disappointed by their omakase sushi. the place is more for sushi "purists" though. just super fresh fish flown from japan.

cafe michi is good too.. also went to kaji on my birthday and it was good but i'll never have to go to that place again.

if you're into beer, bar Volo (charles and yonge) has pretty amazing selection. Bier markt has good selection as well but it gets pretty crowded as its overexposed

I like Beer Bistro when it comes to stuff like that. Haven't been to Volo but Bistros patio is pretty cool and their selection is great. Plus their fries and mussels are good.

bier markt is in the yuppie douchebag capital of the world.

we just went to bar volo last night for the first time, had a tasting platter of 12 beers (would've been 14 but they were tapped out of 2)

would go again, would not order their shitty ploughman's again

the flavour of their ground beef just doesn't hold a candle. I got their regular cheeseburger and found it totally lacklustre, almost devoid of flavour other than the (kinda shitty) toppings. Then I went back for the "Priest" , the mushroom on top of the cheeseburger. No surprise, all the flavour came from the mushroom, but little of it was good. Overwhelming black pepper, some gooey basic cheese and little else.

I haven't had the Vatican or whatever yet, but if they're still using their basic formula I'm not too interested.

Tried Allens though? Maybe I'm biased because I've been going there since I was a kid, but I've always loved Allens for burgers.

http://www.blogto.com/restaurants/allens

"The hamburgers at Allen’s are made using beef from Henry Trainor’s farm in Blackstock, Ontario, about an hour North East of the city. Every week Allen’s receives a steer from the farm and makes their burgers using that meat. That kind of quality control means that a nice, pink burger from Allen’s is going to be about as close to burger heaven as you can get."

I know numerous people that say Allens is the best burger in TO. As a burger aficionado, I'm surprised you haven't heard of it.
