Basil Box Toronto

Basil Box replacing Hero Burger at Queen & Spadina

One of Toronto's busiest corners is about to get a little bit spicier. That's because Basil Box - the fast-casual Thai eatery (whose Penang curry sauce is seriously hot) - will be moving in to the former Hero Burgers outpost at Queen and Spadina.

Peter Chiu, Basil Box's founder and owner, tells us that his restaurant's Queen West location should be up and running in November of this year.

You can currently find Basil Box in Mississauga's Square One Shopping Centre and at the bottom of the Student Learning Centre (SLC) on the Ryerson University campus. It's usually packed at lunch time and it's easy to see why considering service is speedy and the food is affordable, filling and flavourful.

Earlier this month, the former Hero Burgers became Quantum Burger, a pop-up experiential marketing activation for the new third-person shooter game Quantum Break.

Are you happy that Basil Box is moving in to the Queen West neighbourhood? Let us know in the comments.
