Wednesday night I was taken on a restaurant tour of Scarborough — four different places — plus rolls from a Sri Lankan locale, consumed in the office of the Dean of UT Scarborough and with the assistance of Peter Loewen.
After that eating, and lots of driving around and looking, I concluded Scarborough is the best ethnic food suburb I have seen in my life, ever, and by an order of magnitude. I hope you all have the chance to visit Scarborough, Ontario.
If you are wondering where I went, that is beside the point.

As a former resident of Montreal and now living in North York, beside Scarborough. I wholeheartedly agree. The food in Scarborough, especially Chinese, is great. Since , I don’t own a car, I am forced to rely on the TTC, transit agency, and it is quite frequent and reliable, even in the suburbs.
I agree , I ate at a small Jamaican restaurant there, run by one woman, it was like the Jamaican mother you wished you had, best roti ever.
