Happy 2012, Toronto Food Blog. This holiday season has been full of great eatin’, but I am looking forward to returning to the once-a-day mission of finding some of the city’s best eats. What better place to start then than with our local, Chinatown East lunch-hour go-to? Recommended by Blair Phillips, tried (numerous times) by the MIJO sales team, and tested by the RAOB, Ka Ka Lucky is much, much more than just a sexy-sounding place to eat.
Packed daily with locals, Gwielows and neighbourhood police officers, Lunch Specials see the owners chopping-up one, two or three BBQ meats along side Steamed Broccoli and White Rice for $5.50, $6.00 and $6.50 respectively. There’s also a daily hot-plate buffet to choose from and a 100+ item a la carte menu for those not wishing to eat what has been hanging in the window.
On your way home from work? Whole Chickens are chopped into 8 pieces and are available three different ways for $13. The stuff of legend, entire pigs are also available BBQ`d, chopped and delivered for $138. I think I am going to pre-order for our annual Super Bowl Party.
They say that the “Best BBQ Pork in North America” can be found at Kom Jug Yuen in Chinatown. I reckon Ka Ka Lucky gives them a real run for their money… any time of the day. Places like this really prove that there are great spots to eat on all sides of this city. Lookout Chinatown; Chinatown East is on the way up… and Ka Ka Lucky is on top of its game. Thirsty? They’re licenced under LLBO and are located one block south of Gerrard on the east side of Broadview Ave.
