This is one of the well-known Chinese restaurants in Toronto which is why it’s often filled with loyal customers day to night. Walking into Swatow in the middle of the night is like walking into some kind of night-owl clubhouse. A crowd of regulars shuffle in and out, greeting the staff with everything from secret handshakes, to 'high fives' and 'props' as I giggle just overhearing it all. Looking at the menus, there's lots to choose from. One of their best recipes is the Fuk-kin Fried Rice. For those who don’t know what this food looks like, it’s a seafood and fried rice with a creamy sauce. For those who don’t what tastes like, Swatow restaurant is a good place to start. They have Beef with vegetables on a bed of noodles. Noodles are a little lukewarm, but you’ll be tasting one of the best Chinese beef dishes. Their General Tao Chicken is one of the best General Tao dishes you can get on Spadina. It comes with both sweet and spicy peppers and is still crispy despite all the yummy sauce it's smothered in. Not the healthiest thing on the table, but most definitely the tastiest.
