多伦多唐人街美食餐厅

Sunday, January 7th, 2018

多伦多唐人街最为世人称道的就是遍布的美食餐厅,令人看得眼花缭乱。最早多经营粤菜,后来开了两家川菜馆,近几年更是有中国各地美食纷纷落地唐人街,包括:粤菜点心、川菜、云南菜、兰州拉面、各地火锅、重庆小面、武汉鸭脖、狗不理包子、海南鸡饭等。由于很多餐厅营业到凌晨时分,不少多伦多市民夜生活后专程驾车到唐人街用餐。

Lipstick and Bananas: Shoppers Drug Mart Sells Food Too

Sunday, December 31st, 2017

Canada’s largest drugstore chain Shoppers Drug Mart has added fresh food to many of its stores.

For many Torontonians, often if there’s not a grocery store nearby, it’s convenient to go to Shoppers and pick up like milk, eggs and meat.

At selected Shoppers Drug Mart stores, colourful produce lines the shelves close by cosmetics — everything from oranges, apples and bananas to tomatoes and cucumbers.

The refrigerated section displays fresh fish and meat selections like sausages and ground beef. Prepared foods ranged from sandwiches to sushi and salads.

Milk and eggs at Shoppers Drug Mart are sold at the same prices at No Frills.



Most food items are not cheap. But I’ve noticed there’s often a lot of 50% off sale items at the store near my home. The meat and vegetable can be cheaper than those at No Frills when they are on sale. Those 50% off sale items may or may not be expiring soon items. I’ve found some cookies expiring in 2 days and some chicken breasts expiring in 7 days.

Hot meals 50% OFF

Fresh meat 50% OFF

Vegetables 50% OFF

Expensive Fruits
Fruits at Shoppers don’t come cheap. I’ve found Mcintosh apples for $0.99 — each. In nearby grocery stores, they are also sold for $0.99 — but by the pound.

“The convenience is all that matters.” Some may say.
