Corner by Spoon & Fork opened a couple of weeks ago, and I happened to find it by driving home along Dundas E. It’s just west of Dixie Road. What a great concept in a not very appealing area of Mississauga!
Corner is from the same company as Spoon & Fork. Except this concept is a quick, low cost eatery where customers serve themselves. Sort’ve fast food, but better. It’s a great place for people dining alone who want to be somewhere better than a fast food joint.
The inside of Corner is spacious, beautiful and very serene. I’ve visited twice already and I love the relaxing, quiet atmosphere here. I could just sit here all day!
The eatery describes itself as Asian fusion, but it’s much more; serving pasta dishes, sandwiches, make your own Asian bowls, Sushi, and even breakfast…at very affordable prices! I’ll be sure to drop by and try their breakfast next weekend.
So, I stopped by twice in a row because I wanted to try a few things on their menu board to get an idea of the Asian dishes and an idea of the quality of the non-Asian dishes. Also, because as mentioned above I find it very serene and enjoyable just being here.
The first day I ordered the Mum Bowl where I basically create my own meal. I chose pad Thai noodles, lemon chicken, four veggies (broccoli, pumpkin, corn, green beans), and I added pad Thai sauce, plus some garnishes. I added a small mango salad on the side. To be honest, my concoction didn’t taste good. It was flavourless (not enough sauce), and I shouldn’t have added the pumpkin as it was too mushy. Too much mish mash of different stuff. My self-made bowl was a fail. The mango salad was a winner though – generous serving, fresh, nice punchy dressing.
I came back today to try the non-asian food and ordered the Spaghetti Bolognese with garlic bread. Thank goodness I didn’t order a side salad because the serving was plentiful. The sauce is made in-house and is loaded with meat. I would have to say the taste of the spaghetti meal was decent. I found the sauce a little on the sweet side, but I can’t complain as the price was very good at only $8.99.
My $7.49 Eggs Benedict breakfast with free coffee! (Wasn’t crazy about the parsley flakes sprinkled ontop of the hash)
One has to remember the meals offered at Corner by Spoon & Fork is not of high end. Based on the price point average of $8.99 per meal, it caters to those on a budget or for those in for a quick bite. It’s only an eatery. But I have to say the value is very good and I love the whole concept of what Spoon & Fork has created at the other end of the dining spectrum.
