PAT Central

apr1106_makarel.jpgEvery few weeks I stop by P.A.T. Central on Bloor Street to pick up some food items that I can't find on my usual grocery route. While the store is likely to underwhelm anyone who's tasted the T&T Supermarket experience, it's still a great spot to pick up supplies close to the Bloor Subway line.

On a recent trip I picked up a handful of fresh vegetables, some tofu (they have a great selection - tubed, firm, soft - and cheap!), kimchi and seaweed. I admired the fresh sashimi and mackarel (above); gave a once-over of the frozen bulgogi and surprised some onlookeers by taking some pics of the salted shrimp.

P.A.T. Central has a good selection of prepared foods including the ready-to-mix bibimbap. Just add rice!

The shelves stock lots of items you'd be pressed to find elsewhere such as Pulmuone seafood juice.

There's a whole section devoted to canned, liquid coffees.
