I was not super-lucky, as I went there for dinner but they had only the sushi bar working. Despite that, the waitress worked to bring us some tempura and edamame - which was really appreciated. They have really interesting types of sushi, and all the...More

At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination
for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip
and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with
a strong student influence from the Ryerson University
Campus. As a result, the Downtown area is always in
flux: undergoing the construction of new facilities,
with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to
