There's a bit of a cycle to it, where the new looks good but becomes unpopular and poorly maintained as its value declines. Then, it's either replaced, renovated, or restored.I try to be a Glass Half Full guy, you can find many examples of locations that are MUCH improved!
My parents had a takeout joint on coxwell from 57 to 91..... after they sold it, it lasted another 16 years and finally disappeared after its 50th anniversary..... I frequented after the sale and miss their unique breaded shrimps to this day!Thank you Jarndyce. End of an era for Sea-Hi.. funny, my parents never took us there when we were kids (1960s). Families of Chinese descent would be found eating at Kwong Chow (now Yueh Tung), or Sai Woo (long gone). Sea-Hi (and Lichee Gardens (also long gone)and Nanking on Elizabeth) were not patronized by our group. China House (gone) on Eglinton West managed to appeal to our group as well as the Lo Fan; many Jewish.
So whats left if you like this kind of food and ambience? House of Chan. Hong Kong Gardens. I've never been to either. Any others?
Note to self: tell the father-in-law to continue to hang onto to those old menus.
North of this loop was Zone 2. Please deposit a new fare to continue to the end of the Amour Height diesel bus route at Bombay, north of Wilson Avenue.
