    Japanese pastries are delicious and unique. Sweet and savory. Divinely buttered and lightly fried (?) This is the spicy curry which I believe has miso paste as a base.

    The $11.50 breakfast special at this Japanese bakery gets you a plank of fish (salmon or tilapia), a bowl of rice, vegetables, choice of salad, and miso soup with a generous portion of tofu. Read more

    Little Tokyo’s premiere bakery undercuts Okonomi price-wise when it comes to breakfast. The premises are functional, and you’ll dine at tables and chairs provided amidst racks of groceries. Read more

    I get their bento boxes for lunch or dinner at least three times a week. Around $6-7 and a good variety. My favourite is the miso salmon. The onigiri aren't amazing, but they're cheap and filling.

    The spicy tuna bun is awesome- brings together two of my all-time faves: pastry and spicy fish! Perfect for lunch on-the-go or as a snack while exploring the East Village.

    Get the Japanese breakfast. Great value, variety and so tasty. You get a choice of whitefish or salmon. $10 at the time of writing.

    Little Asian cafe/bakery/mart. Chocolate croissant is pretty bomb and their breakfast food is tasty and affordable. Even got some nice outdoor seating too! (4 of 4 petals via Fondu) Read more

    Great place for a cheap lunch – get a bento box from the fridge and heat it in their microwave. You should also get some weird Japanese candy or pastry for dessert.

    The spicy tuna bun (the one with a sheet of nori on top) makes a highly portable and filling lunch. Perfect to pack for a flight or long train/bus ride.

    Great Japanese bread and bakery items. Their raisin bread is my favorite and the coffee is good with milk and sugar.

    Try the yakisoba sandwich-encased inside a soft, squishy roll are noodles, pickled ginger, cooked napa cabbage, and bonito flakes, topped by some sort of dried herb.

    Japanese breakfast, for sure. But great job on a straight-up egg sand., with potatoes, mixed in a veg of my choice (spinach) with a clump of freshly dressed greens. Around $3.

    Japanese breakfast may be the best deal in the neighbourhood. Fish, rice, soup, salad plus more for a little over $10.

    Delicious curry bread! Better if it hasn't been sitting out too long. Also, the macarons (macaroons are a different thing) are quite nice.

    Grab a salmon onigiri or two for lunch, and the green tea cookies -- 6 for $2.50 -- for dessert! Yes, they're pricey, but worth it!
