Once you get past the strange smells, the aggressive pedestrians on Gould Street and our subpar academic reputation, there are a lot of great things about Ryerson. One of those things is definitely how many food options we have around us. With so many choices, things can get overwhelming. But don’t fret—The Eyeopener has compiled a list of the food places on campus you should definitely be dropping your OSAP money on.
Banh Mi Boyz
399 Yonge St.
Weekdays it closes at 10 p.m., Saturday 9 p.m., Sunday 7 p.m.
The Eye recommends one of Banh Mi legendary banh mis or a small, but filling, bao for under $5 and huge portions of poutines for under $10.
260 Yonge St., Eaton Centre Food Court
Closes 9:30 p.m., Sunday 7 p.m.
The food is only $6.99 after 8 p.m. and gets cheaper the later it gets. Be warned if you’re a Thai food purist, this place is more like thai food with a heavy Chinese infusion.
113 Bond St.

Ginger is a great option for really cheap but delicious food with fast service. A full plate can range from $8 to $14 and they have a wide range of options from banh mis to pho. Don’t miss out on their iced coffee and fruit smoothies as well.

A good stop after some late night partying, Pita Land will serve up hot shawarmas till 4 a.m. It’ll cost you around $8.
80 Dundas St. E

Sushi Style offers suspiciously cheap but good sushi. Eight pieces of sushi will cost you around $6. If you’re feeling bougie, splurge on a sushi burrito, which are a bit pricier but so worth it.
