Goldstone Gold

Tuesday August 21, 10:52 a.m.

Last Thursday, I met up with Shard for our monthly chat on our blogging projects. After a couple of hours at the Starbucks on Queen & Richmond, we decided to walk up Spadina for lunch in Chinatown. When you consider the hefty prices for merely fair fare at the world's most famous coffeehouse chain, getting a simple but good & inexpensive lunch just a few blocks north is a no-brainer.

We ended up at Goldstone, a Chinese eatery on the southwest corner of Dundas and Spadina, the main intersection of downtown Chinatown. I ordered the $4.95 bowl of BBQ Pork on Rice. Now, that's good eating! And the crazy thing is that the food came out in less than 5 minutes after ordering. I don't think a restaurant has quite seared itself into my memory for good reasons so quickly.
