Urban

303 King St. W. - King & John, Toronto, Canada
Vegetable Spring Rolls in a Cantaloupe Melon Salsa and a Sesame Hoisin Sauce | $11. I don't remember what I had, but this is the one thing that sticks out in my mind when I think about the meal - Frank ordered the spring rolls because he wasn't very hungry. He got a christmas tree-shaped dish, two spring rolls, and some syrup in a nice little pattern. Frank's look was priceless as his jaw just dropped in disbelief. "Where's the rest?" "That's your order, sir." It wasn't even good. (Justin)

(Frank): "I'd rather go to Chinatown."

Five spiced chicken with rice and vegetables with a papaya sauce | $22. Anyways, I didn't find this dish very very good. I mean it was decent, but wasn't all that great. The place looked nice, but more of a "date" place than a "friend" place. Washrooms were not impressive at all. Don't go into the washroom in back of restaurant if your a guy. They strategically place a mirror somewhere you don't want it to be. The waitress was very nice though. She was funny, very nice to talk to. (Jon)

Conclusion: From an artistic point of view, it had a nice little converted garage door-restaurant concept and okay date decor, but I wouldn't bring my date there unless she had a fetish for black decor and didn't care about anything else. From a personal point of view, I just didn't like the decor at all. Frank thought it was outrageously overpriced (I wonder why...) while the food wasn't amazing. Come to think of it, I wouldn't go back there, period. (Justin)

Justin wouldn't let me give Urban a MINUS 3/5. I hate that place. (Frank)
