    Victoria Square United Church

    by mikey_e Written Oct 14, 2007

    Victoria Square United Church is a historic monument in and of itself - it was first constructed in 1880. The congregation, however, is much older and dates from the 1832, when it was a Methodist sect (United Church incorporates Methodists, Presbyterians and Congregationalists). The Church was inaugurated in 1884, and has been used for worship since then. The building is pretty typical of southern Ontario structures, although its red-brick façade makes it look more like schoolhouse than a church. There is a pretty cemetary attached to it, although I am unsure of whether or not visitors are permitted to visit or photograph the older tombstones.

    pacific mall

    by Suzanne123 Written Oct 16, 2004

    This is the largest indoor Chinese shopping mall in North America. It has 400 shops and is lots of fun. Be sure to try bubble tea and eat some dim sum at one of the restaurants. There are some Japanese food booths too at the food court. Enjoy!!! This is close by to the IBM complex at Victoria Park and Steeles Ave. The border of the city of Toronto.

    Mandarin: Huge Chinese Buffet

    by Martman Updated Apr 4, 2011

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    It is not easy to describe this restaurant. Words cannot truly explain it because It must be seen to be believed. In simple words, the buffet is HUGE. Even if you are picky, there will be a huge selection. The soup alone, there is usually four flavors to choose from. There is 2 really long tables with choices of food on each side. The perimeter of the buffet room is also almost complete with food.

    I once had visitors from another country. I took them to Mandarin. They wanted to keep coming back to Mandarin again and again. According to them, where they live, there is no buffet that comes anywhere even close to comparing with this one. They were stunned when they saw this buffet! Try it for yourself and see!

    It is not just the quantity, but the quality too. I find the food excellent and tasty and an extremely high standard. I have been to many buffets where food is not this standard.

    Favorite Dish: It is not easy to name a favorite dish from such a huge and tasty buffet. One section I do enjoy is the side grill where a staff member slices the tasty meat for you.

    I know for certain that I enjoy the Clam Chowder soup. I had that soup Finch and Dufferin brancy but did not see it at their branch by Woodbine north of Steeles. Maybe since then, availability at each branch has changed?

    Patrons Indulging; first time visitors say WOW Place was busy, only this corner was near empty One section of buffet My plate!

    A Taste of Japan: Japanese Treat

    by Martman Updated Nov 4, 2006

    3 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is a really wonderful restaurant in Markham. Like many Japanese restaurants, the diner has a choice of sitting at regular tables or those where the food is cooked in front of you. To me, that is the whole fun. I love bringing visitors there.

    Frankie Tomatto's: Wonderful Italian Buffet in Markham

    by Martman Written Oct 29, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Frankie Tomatto is a huge and wonderful buffet restaurant. The food is chiefly Italian and extremely tasty. Each eating room is ornate. I cannot give you an exact amount for the price, as the buffet changes its price fluctuates dramatically depending when you visit. The best value is a week day lunch.

    Favorite Dish: I personally, like their spicy sausages.

    Pacific Mall and Market Village: Enjoy Oriental Experience

    by Martman Updated May 3, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Name of Shop: Pacific Mall and Market Village

    The Greater Toronto Area has about half a million Chinese. The city has the well-known HUGE Chinatown, adjacent to downtown. In the suburbs, there are many other smaller Chinese areas. (In fact, I am constantly discovering new such areas!)

    One of the many Chinese areas comprises of two ENORMOUS adjacent shopping malls.

    Their names are MARKET VILLAGE and PACIFIC MALL. Walking through these malls, you are forgiven for forgeting which city you are in! Walking through the malls, one is surrounded by hundreds and thousands of Chinese people, Chinese shops and Chinese signs.

    What really intrigued me, is that the two malls are both Chinese and adjacent, yet their interior and exterior are completely different! This difference is explained in the first of my 5 albums below. In that album I also give directions to reach the malls as well as their websites.

    I was so intrigued by the 2 malls, that I did not just want them as an entry in my shopping pages. I Made travelogue albums on the malls! There are no less than 7 pages. You can reach any one of the first 5 by click the travelogues at the bottom of my Markham page.
    You can also reach any of the 7 by clicking these links:

    ADJACENT MALLS 1 Front Exterior

    ADJACENT MALLS 2 Supermarket

    ADJACENT MALLS 3 Food Court

    ADJACENT MALLS 4 Market Village Interior

    ADJACENT MALLS 5 Market Village Side Exterior

    ADJACENT MALL 6 Pacific Mall Interior 1

    ADJACENT MALL 7 Pacific Mall Interior 2

    Some preview pictures are provided here. They are, however, duplicated with lots extra in my suggested albums.
