Flavor First ~ 28 Nelson St ~ (416) 431-7569

Flavor First is a takeaway hot table in the South Cederbrae neighborhood of Scarborough, specializing in West Indian and Chinese #cheapeats.  The portions are huge and the prices are low.  Safe to say, this is our kinda place.  It’s quickly become part of our weekly lunch rotation, and we’ll often frequent as part of the…
