When 12 o’clock hits and your stomach starts to grumble, don’t worry about having to venture too far for a satisfying lunchtime meal in the neighbourhood. You’ll find there are plenty of delicious spots a short walk away from King Blue Condos that will satisfy your taste buds’ preferences. For lunch meetings, a quick salad with friends who work nearby or grabbing something to bring back home to your suite here are our top picks for lunch in King West. Bon appetite!
Cibo Wine Bar
Four downstairs conference rooms with AV set-up and Wi-Fi means Cibo Wine Bar can be your designated working-lunch destination from now on. Your clients and team members will be delighted to discuss the latest project over Burrata and proscuitto, braised short ribs and pappardelle, and if they want they can have their pick from over 2,400 bottles of wine to pair it with. Just make sure not to get any tomato sauce on those progress reports. 522 King Street West.
Khao San Road
Want to join the eager lunchtime crowd of Thai food lovers in the Entertainment District? Get in line. You’ll find a line up outside Khao San Road pretty much any day of the week, but once you get a seat we doubt you’ll be disappointed. How could you when their Khao Soi (beef sank with coconut curry sauce and noodles), Street Style Pad Thai and Gra Bong (squash fritters) have been named some of the best in the city by foodies and chefs alike? Call in your order ahead of time and pick it up to enjoy in your King Blue kitchen. 326 Adelaide Street West.
Aroma Espresso Bar
Israeli import Aroma Espresso Bar will challenge your cup of Starbucks or Second Cup on the caffeine side of the menu, and its on-site kitchen boasts healthy, made-to-order salads and sandwiches that are fast and filling for a quick bite in between morning yoga and an afternoon shopping for condo furniture. Our favourite combination is an Aroma Coffee, quinoa salad and Italian goat cheese sandwich. 430 King Street West.
Big Smoke Burger
Sometimes you just want a juicy burger and fries for lunch, but those fast-food options are so typical and boring. Big Smoke on King West offers signature burgers with lamb and organic Ontario AAA beef and a list of gourmet toppings you won’t find in a drive thru’s menu along with hand cut fries and old fashioned shakes. Dine in for a bite with a friend, or call in for pick-up and get back to life in the King Blue community. 573 King Street West.
