Swatow - Chinese food., Toronto: 3 reviews and 1 photos
There's no pretentions here, a huge vat of chicken stock simmers as the base for all the soup and noodle dishes with various things being dipped in and out, all adding to the flavour.
Simple is quite often good, and for the money this is well worth a visit, which explains its popularity.
As with everywhere in Toronto the service is really friendly, relaxed, despite how busy the place was. Formica tables, stainless-steel tea pots, china cups.......cafe rather than restaurant.
Favorite Dish: 4 balls soup was a bit of a disappointment, great broth but heavy balls (only 2 types) Shrimp with egg and rice was also a bit of a non-event, but then for a $5 Canadian average main course we aren't expecting haute Chinese.
Address: Slightly north of Dundas on Spadina.
