California Sandwiches

I've been eyeing this new California Sandwiches since I tried the downtown location in April 2016
They didn't have everything from the downtown store (like their Tiramisu), but they had their sandwiches: 
Chicken Deluxe and extra breaded eggplant
It came with tomatoes, lettuce and mayo, but no marinara sauce. I think I would definitely prefer it with marinara sauce - but the kaiser bun was great and the chicken and eggplant were as good as I remember from downtown. 

Veal sandwich and breaded eggplant with marinara sauce on the side (hurray for extra sauce!)
I think the extra marinara sauce made it even better! The veal and eggplant were really tender. 

Overall: Delicious sandwiches for reasonable prices considering the sizes of the sandwiches.

Sushi House

My coworker told me about this Sushi place on Dundas that serves up a $4.99 sushi lunch with a drink and I knew I had to go check it out since that sounds like a great deal! 

When we got there, there was a huge line. It was mostly people waiting for their $4.99 take out lunches and was a mix of young professionals and students since you get two rolls with a drink. 
Spicy salmon roll and Avocado Chicken
The spicy salmon was okay, but I would pass on the avocado chicken - something about it just didn't seem right (either the sweet sauce on top or the fact that it was terribly wrapped). However, for $4.99, it was really cheap and filling - you get what you pay for.

Little India

20170114_133957 20170114_132430
I've had Little India's lunch buffet on my to-eat list for a while, so when I was in the neighbourhood, I dragged my friend to lunch here!
Salad, rogan josh (beef), butter chicken, aloo gobhi (cauliflower) and a spring roll
It was pretty busy despite our late lunch hour and the food was still coming out of the kitchen. The food was pretty tasty and we got to try everything (which is my favourite part of buffets). For $16.95, we got a lot of food. 

Pakoras, tandoori chicken, chicken tikka masala, chana masala (chickpeas)
The tandoori chicken was really good as were their sauces for the chana masala and tikka masala and I liked that their rice was slightly flavoured with saffron to make it more aromatic. 

Ice cream! A nice way to finish off all of that yummy Indian food!

Overall: The all you can eat lunch buffet at Little India was pretty good and it's good value for money (especially downtown)! The food was good and the service was great too since they cleared everything promptly.
