Hi everyone

I'm 21-year old student coming to Toronto and I really want to know where the best places are to eat. I've recently been to Hong Kong and I absolutely loved everything including their great food! Do you guys know where the best dim sum, sushi and Italian food is?? Love to hear it from the locals, as they know best :)!

And one other thing, if I want to exhange money in Toronto, where would I have the best exchange rates??

Thank you so much!

If you have any more tips, plz drop me a line,

Chinese food can be found along Spadina, especially around the corner of Spandina and Dundas. Dim Sum is available at many places. I like the Pacific Restaurant at 421 Dundas St W, but many places are good.

For Sushi I like Fune at 100 Simcoe Street. It's pricey but good. Less expensive Sushi places can be found all over town.

Italian - head up to College Street - that's little Italy. Many excellent restaurants along there. Bar Italia always seems to draw a crowd.

I'll leave it to others as to the exchange rates.

Right on Holland. T Dot has all kinda sorts of restaurants.
Dim Sum: Kings Garden 214 King St. W. is a favorite, bit more cost. Pacific is solid too. If you Like Vietnamese gotta goto Saigon Palace Restaurant on Spadina just south of College. C$5 gets you more food then you can eat. Try the coconut shakes! yeah. For the freshest Sushi I like Tempo Restaurant - 596 College St. Its a little more expense but the Sushi really is quite good. Okay Italian. Its over. We have nice Itai food. Ferro on St. Clair has the best appetizers, Grilled calamari is so good it will make you cry. Giovanni, Buttr and Coco Leonnze on College are good pasta and Salad, ambiance a little more trendo. pizza, is Banfi in Forest Hill, Il fornello does a pretty good job aswell. For Antipest and a good daytime luch spot where flavour infusion is important goto Grano on Yonge st. for dishes out the sea go across the street to Zia Piera.
I guess to exchange Euro the Thomas Cook office at Yonge and Bloor usually givecompetative rates. When are you coming?
Enjoy the city.
