What I don't understand is why authentic Donair shops haven't opened up in Toronto
Not only is the demand there but it is really easy to make the perfect Donair. Get vertical spit and a supplier of Gyro Cones and your in business! The sauce is easy to make from scratch and all you do is dice up some onions and tomatoes.
For those customers who don't like sweet sauce offer tzatziki instead. A guaranteed goldmine!
Some small updates on Danforth.
- FRUIT KING at the corner of Danforth and Logan is gone. Corner lot would probably make a good location for a restaurant/bar/lounge.
- Right beside FRUIT KING, the former "Demetra Restaurant and Tavern" is being taken over by a company called Jamba Juice (they will be opening up a Yogurt shop - seems to be the hot thing right now).
- And a few steps down the Mexican Restaurant "La Cabana" is gone.

Jamba Juice is in Toronto now?!?! When did this happen? They already have a few locations!
Details slowing being revealed about David Chang's Momofuku invasion of Toronto. Toronto Star: Acadia's Matt Blondin joins Momofuku in Toronto
In a Star exclusive, Matt Blondin confirmed he’ll join Toronto’s first Momofuku restaurant when he leaves Acadia on May 31.
He’ll become executive sous chef at Daisho, one of three Momofuku restaurants opening here July 28. In the process, the 29-year-old perfectionist joins forces with a chef of even more exacting standards: Momofuku founder Dave Chang.

Daisho, named for the pair of samurai swords, will have a menu of communal meals for four or more people, modelled on dinners like the bo ssam — whole slow-cooked pork shoulder with sides and condiments — at Momofuku’s Ssam Bar and the fried chicken at the chain’s Noodle Bar in New York City.
Daisho joins a Noodle Bar and a third, unnamed restaurant serving only tasting menus in a three-storey building beside the The Shangri-La condominium-hotel at University Ave. and Adelaide St. W.
Blondin will work under executive chef Sam Gelman (ex-Má Pêche) and will hire and train kitchen staff, control inventory, oversee daily operations and help develop the menu.

Any ideas as to what restaurant might come into 220 King? I know the site has been available for a while. Currently Barootes.
Taco Bell on Sheppard E has been torn down. Not sure if they plan to rebuild it or its gone.
