This Sheraton Has a Hawker Food Centre and is 9,000 Miles from Singapore

Toronto winters won’t be noticed when I stay at the Sheraton Parkway Toronto North again and again.

We have given up staying in downtown Toronto: traffic and parking are dreadful and many of our favorite parks for strolls and restaurants for indulgence are in the suburbs. This time we are staying within a few block radius of many superb Chinese restaurants in Richmond Hill/Markham. Not just Cantonese, there is also a great Shanghainese and Beijingese in our orbit, both regional cuisines that are hard to find with any authenticity in the typical overseas Chinatown.

Or we don’t even make it outside. The Sheraton Parkyway is a large complex of towers, many ballrooms and a small shopping center with an awesome food court serving local businesses. A mini Singapore hawker food centre of Chinese and Southeast Asian foods. Prices are rock bottom.

The lady at Superlicious is particularly alert and friendly at the sight of any diner. These pictures were taken mid-afternoon on a Saturday so the place was quiet. Most vendors close on Sunday.

What Sheraton can top this? Do any others in the world have on-site bubble tea?

Another reason to visit Toronto (and surrounding areas) 😉 is the vast variety of restaurants from around the world. Toronto holds the title (as per the UN) as the most multicultural city in the world.

Sorry, I’d take visiting Toronto over New York any day. As Peter Ustinov once said…. Toronto is like New York but run by the Swiss!

So which credit card to use at those hawker stalls? How are you pushing cards down our throats with his post?

For those people are dreaming of moving to Big Apple, it would be helpful for them to hear form a local like you to reflect why you dislike NYC.

but didn’t you still need to travel from Jersey City to JFK or LGA? They are all located in Queens already. I am just saying… have fun

You probably just looked for a reason to travel after all. Those things did exist in Queens without flying over north border.

is it far from downtown? If no rental car, is there any public transportation to go to downtown? What are the reasons you keep coming back to Canada? Are there food better than the big cities like LA or NY?

And that’s Canadian funds! -25% minimum with the exchange rate!
