One day several years ago I reviewed the Urban Eatery in the Toronto Eaton Centre. I walked there myself, and learned all about it. Now there is another eating area in the city, are you ready for it. It is at Union Station. After many years it has opened. It used to be a pit. Now it is opened to the public. I went down there by myself and I reviewed the food outlets there are in there. Here is my culinary review:
The first thing I would like to mention at this point is that there are both stairs and escalators leading up and down into the area.
Once you are at the bottom of the stairs or the escalator you see a large glowing cube with the name of different outlets on it. You are not allowed to touch it, there are signs indicating it is releasing radon gas that may harm you.
The ceiling is designed with round and curved structures, they look like mushroom caps.
This gives the area a very fungal feeling, because you are underground. They also look slightly like sinks at times. I should mention that I washed my hands before I came here.
At this point I would like to mention that I began to look at the different outlets.
This one is called Tim’s Union, it serves coffee and donuts to those who come there.
Then there is this one which is called Pizza Pizza, it is beside the other one I just talked about and it sells pizza.
This one is actually called McDonald’s, but here it looks like they are saying that it is called Munion. They serve burgers, fries, milkshakes, and soft drinks.
This one is called Bangkok Buri, they have food that you may find in Thailand if you went there on vacation.
This one is called Roywoods Union, here you can get approved for a mortgage or line of credit.
These two are called Paramount (not affiliated with the movie production company) and Loaded Pier. My apologies, but I don’t know what they sell in these two places.
This one is called Shanghai 360, it serves food you may find in China if you were to go there. You will notice there are people in this photo- there were about 100 people in the area at the time with their friends and families. (I was by myself.)
It was at this point that an alarm went off near the Sushi outlet (not pictured). I should mention that I don’t know why the alarm sounded, whether it was for fire, theft, or another emergency. I was disturbed by it and left the area without eating.
In conclusion, I would like to say that it is a fine area for eating, with many options for you, and if you have any guests, then for them as well. There are also other stairs and escalators leading out to the other side of the station.
In my closing words, I would like to say that it is good that they developed this area instead of leaving it an empty pit like it was for many years. I remember it was an empty pit during many sad times in my life. I remember walking by the pit, and sitting near it. Now it is a bustling centre of food and people. I would rate this area 8/10, and one day hope to experience it again. Eat here, it’s great!
