Green Eggplant Restaurant ~ 1968 Queen Street E ~ (416) 913-3361

If you’re in the Beach and are looking for a place where portions & selection are king, look no further than the Green Eggplant. This family-friendly diner often finds a line-up out the door on weekends, and their co-lo at 514 Eglinton Ave West is a testament to the fact that they’re doing a number of things right.

They say that “you don’t win friends with salad.” Well, the Green Eggplant seems to be the exception. An enormous Caesar (Romaine, Creamy Caesar Dressing, Croutons and Parmesan) or Greek Salad (Lettuce, Radicchio, Cucumbers, Red Onions, Tomatoes, Feta Cheese and Kalamata Olives) eats like a meal and comes accompanied with a Large Skewer of Grilled Chicken, Beef or Shrimp. Their Hungarian Goulash is filled with a generous serving of Prime Rib and Veggies… great on a cold day.

Perhaps the winner on this day, though, was a 2 oz. Vodka Caesar (with all the trimmings) along side a Turkey Club (with your choice of Soup, Side Salad or Fries). An enormous Onion Bun is cut into quarters and filled to the brim with all the usual suspects (Turkey, Bacon, Mayo, Lettuce, Tomato and Cheddar). I usually have a big appetite, but, truth be told, some of this sarny had to be doggie-bagged for later.

I am glad this place is relatively close to my work, because I am really looking forward to coming back and trying some of their other sandwiches. Who knows… maybe one of them will grace the pages of next year’s National Sandwich Day review. Thanks very much for the recommendation, Lily Gray! We’ll see you and the Green Eggplant again real soon.

  1. First of all I want to say awesome blog! I had a quick question which I’d like to ask if you don’t
    mind. I was curious to know how you center yourself and clear your thoughts prior to writing.
    I have had trouble clearing my mind in getting my ideas out there.
    I truly do enjoy writing however it just seems like the first 10 to
    15 minutes are usually wasted simply just trying to figure out how to
    begin. Any ideas or hints? Many thanks!
