Mega Street Food Complex

Mega Street Food Complex may look like a single restaurant from the outside, but step inside this spot just north of Finch station and you’ll find that it’s actually a one-stop shop for five different types of Asian cuisine.

What used to be an office space is now a mini food court of sorts run by Jackie Zhao, who for 30 years headed the popular Scarborough spot ABC Bakery with his father Sing Zhao.

This stall features a simple menu of popular Hong Kong favourites like lo mein and soups with noodles.

The pork rice rolls ($4.50) make a good appetizer and are made to order in a traditional shelf-like container often used in Hong Kong street markets to make tongs of cheung fun at a time.
