Hamburgers and cheeseburgers are still less than a five at this Vic Park icon. After more than half a century in existence, you can still rely on the Little Counter That Could for perfectly sloppy latenight burgers and $3 onion rings served by people in soda jerk hats.
Despite decades of making some of the most popular dhalpurie and paratha, prices have yet to become unreasonable at this Trini fave on Sheppard East. Boneless chicken, goat, and veggie roti hover between $8 to $12. Meals with rice and peas are just as hefty and average around $12. Doubles are just $2.50.
Budget-friendly halal eats are the speciality at this counter. There are multiple locations across the GTA but the shop on Sheppard near McCowan sells some of the tastiest snacks, from veggie samosas to beef shami kebabs. A chicken biryani is $9.99 and veggie curries are even cheaper.
