“Bibis - 14A Emorville Ave - 25 minute walk. Popular spot in the middle of the trendy neighbourhood of Portobello, this is a fantastic spot with really delicious food, the turkish eggs are a particular favourite of mine. Portobello would be a good stopping off point on your way into town but be warned Bibi’s can be extremely busy with long wait times. ”
