Saku in Vancouver is packed every night, and people can line up up to one hour to get a bite of the tonkatsu. In Toronto, Mr. Tonkatsu is the popular option for tonkatsu.

Continue Exploring on Spadina Avenue: Icha Tea (???)

Spadina Avenue has many bubble tea shops, but there is also this cute independant cafe/tea bar that serves chinese tea, matcha, and tea-infused treats. Icha Tea (???) is known as the heaven for tea lovers on Spadina Avenue. Once you step in, you can first order at the counter. There is a few seats where you can sit and wait for your takeout orders. Otherwise, you can continue to walk inside, passing through an authentic Chinese tea bar, and you can then find more seatings. It is spacious and quiet. There are many students working in the corner, as well as groups chilling around with drinks and desserts.
