Eating out in Mimico

Cafe du Lac, a new restaurant on 2350 Lake Shore Blvd. W. has, in little over a month, become a popular spot. Despite Corey Mintz’s ( review which seemed dedicated to the novelty and folly of eating the Quebec bistro inspired poutine, one might instead appreciate a very well prepared Steak and Frites or Grilled Salmon as was recently enjoyed from the Saturday night prix fix menu. Even if you don’t live in the area, you don’t have to “schlep” out to south Etobicoke, decompress on the GO train and  enjoy a 15 minute walk from Mimico Station to the restaurant through Old Mimico.

The opening of an interesting new restaurant in Mimico is exciting but there are several existing local spots that have been providing consistently good and affordable meals that are popular among locals. It would be rare to find more than one or two other couples in Thai Delight but that’s only because they are much more popular for take-out/delivery. At 170 The Queensway, Thai Delight is directly across the street from the Food Terminal, has a comfortable dining area, a varied menu with several very good Thai style curries and appetizers.
