Here are the best new cheap eats in Toronto for 2014.
The Village by the Grange vendor branched out to this new outpost at Bathurst and Queen this year, where the entire menu of dim sum and steamed buns is priced under $5. Standouts on the menu include siu mai ($3.80) and substantially sized pulled pork bao dressed with apple slaw ($3.50).
This bare-bones South Indian eatery can be found on Bathurst north of Bloor serving up thali combos. A selection of curried meats or dhaal with rice and two vegetable sides with raita and salad come in under $10. Their dosas are also a highlight - the potato masala, for example, is priced at just $6, with a variety of chutneys to seal the deal.
Fresh-made, artisanal sausages are the sole focus at this tiny production kitchen in The Junction. Best of all, you can sample the goods in-store on a bun - owner Mario Garisto cooks up fresh links at lunch and serves them on a bun with optional rapini, caramelized onions and housemade garlic scape oil for an even five bucks.
This fresh bar on Dundas West caters to vegans and vegetarians with a menu featuring scratch-made comfort foods like grilled cheese sandwiches for $6 and hot grain boxes for $12. Look out for daily specials, too, like pecorino-dusted penne with black trumpets and tomato bisque, or hearty cauliflower and kale curries.
