Yonge & Sheppard - A #TransitHubbing Adventure

Yonge and Sheppard is one of those Uptown Hubs that you might never think of venturing up to. It's the kind of Hub that you rarely think of, and a Hub that you might pass by on the subway everyday. But get off at Yonge and Sheppard and you'll find a Hub with a flavour all its own, and enough to do for a low-key night in the northern part of the city! From independently-run Asian eateries to one of the least busy big-screen cinemas in the city, this is a #TransitHubbing Adventure worth going on!

To get to the Yonge and Sheppard Hub, grab the subway from either the north-south direction, the Sheppard Line, or take the eastbound bus from Downsview Station.

First thing to do - browse the mix of independent restaurants with cuisines from all over the world

Korean food just happens to be one of this Hub's specialties

Walking north along Yonge will take you to a beautiful strip of restaurant patios... brrr!!

Feel like Japanese food instead? Try this Sake and Wine Bar - look for the giant chopsticks!

Loxx Hair Design and HY Lounge are two of the out-there venues at this Hub

In the end, we settled for Korean - the food at Joons is a steal!

The portions here are generous - and the alcohol cheap!

Mmmmm... that fried egg on top got eaten right up!

Cap the night off at the Sheppard Grande cinema - big screens but very little traffic!

See ya, Yonge and Sheppard. Maybe next time, we'll head up to Finch?
