I usually don’t like eating around Yonge and Dundas, it’s so busy and touristy which usually means over-priced and not very good but a couple weeks ago, I was going to the Mirvish Theatre and didn’t have a ton of time, so Yonge and Dundas area it was for dinner.
We tried to get into a couple different places but it was all busy but we walked by a brightly lit Asian restaurant and decided to give it a try. We ate family style, which is usually my favourite way to eat because you can have a bit of everything.
We started with the lotus wrapped rice and spring rolls. Turns out, the lotus leaves were not my cup of tea. My boyfriend loves them so he got to eat his and half of mine. The spring rolls were really good. I try not to get spring rolls if they’re the frozen ones because they’re just terrible but these were definitely made on site and delicious.
For our mains, we got the cashew chicken and the singapore noodles, we also added a side of steamed rice because you need something to soak up all that saucy goodness. Both dishes were really tasty and I think you can tell from the size of the photo, they were also gigantic. We definitely had enough to have lunch the next day.
Service was pretty quick, we were in and out in less than an hour which was perfect for us. For dinner, we spent less than $40 including tip although we didn’t have any drinks (it’s crazy how much of a price difference it can make adding drinks even non-alcoholic to the bill). So, if you’re in the neighbourhood and want to avoid a chain restaurant, I’d recommend Asian Bowl!
