Any folks have some memories of the food court's only TWO establishments from the 80s, being Poonie's and Bessie's right across from it?

The only place worth eating in gerrard square
And here's the accompanying article on Tropical Joe's from BlogTO: https://www.blogto.com/restaurants/trop ... s-toronto/

TIL that they source their patties from Allan's. I love going to Allan's in Scarborough, but it's great to know that I can get their patties in the neighbourhood too!

A trini coworker said the roti is just as good as back in T&T :-0
Speaking of Trini food, I wish Tropical Joe's had doubles...but I guess I can't expect a place that focuses in Jamaican food to also have a thorough Trinidadian food menu too.

Used to always get as a kid with the folks when visiting there, a plate of their yummy deep-fried chicken wings with a side of their sweet & sour sauce!

It was really good! Sigh. Great memories! Smiling Face With Sunglasses

Used to get them at ACR Hot Roti & Doubles in Scarborough a lot few years back. Though their quality started declining in comparison to the price raise. Service is not good either.
