Food for a fistful of dollars

Places to grab some hand-held snacks for a few bucks more.

Island Greek

2150 Gottingen Street, 422-8888

The donair pogo (two for $3.50) is utterly pornographic, but strangely, um, magentic. Plus, it's locally made.

Caribbean Twist

3081 Gottingen Street, 404-3855

Their Jamaican patty ($2), a meat pie, is a Caribbean wonder.


1541 Barrington Street, 423-JAVA

Some say the cinammon bun ($2) is the tastiest, gooiest breakfast bun in town, but I can't tawk wif my mouf full.

Hot dog cart at Piercey's

2854 Robie Street

Open up your meat valve for the hot Italian sausage ($3.75), some hard hat all-dressed street meat.

Pizza Corner

Drunken stumble, Blowers & Grafton

Don't forget about The European Food Shop, Sicilian and KoD. We've all huddled around one of those monster slices ($3.95 and up) to stay warm on a cold winter's walk home, haven't we?

Little Fish

1740 Argyle Street 425-4025

Oyster happy hour, 4-6pm daily ($1.50 each for all Maritime varieties), makes business deals go down with a slurp.


1536 Brunswick Street, 429-3034

These muffins ($2.50) are huge, with an amazing whole wheat texture that gives the illusion of health. —Andy Murdoch
