One of the absolute best Southeast Asian restaurants in the Toronto area is Gourmet Malaysia, an oversized dining hall in Scarborough with a massive menu of Malaysian, Indonesian, and Singaporean favourites. In September, the owners opened a new spin-off restaurant called Gourmet Satay at 1348 Kennedy Road near Ellesmere Road in Scarborough.
Although the restaurant hasn’t yet had its official opening, fans of Gourmet Malaysia have noticed the similar sign at this dodgy strip mall on Kennedy and started popping by. The narrow restaurant features many of the same dishes as Gourmet Malaysia, but owner Amy Lim wants to add some specialty “hawker” or street food dishes here soon.
Another weekend has arrived, and with it another subway shutdown. On November 1 and 2, there will be no subway service on Line 1 (Yonge-University-Spadina) between Bloor and Eglinton stations due to track work.
As usual, frequent shuttle buses will operate between the two stations, and Wheel-Trans vehicles will be available for customers who use mobility devices. Alternate routes to subway service on Line 1 include the 32 Eglinton West bus (which stops at Eglinton West Station) and the 512 St. Clair streetcar (which stops at St. Clair West Station).
