    I once bought the Nissin curry cup noodles in rice curry flavour on ebay for $32 shipped 6pack but can't find even such a remotely decent deal anymore and these are big and tasty, so I thought maybe someone knows where to get them in Toronto? seems no seller on amazon ships to Canada for some reason?
    thanks in advance!
    I have less than 5 posts so I can't post a picture or link.

    Have you visited the Sanko store on Queen Street West to see what it stocks? Short of going to J-Town on Steeles or maybe even a T&T store (Cherry St.), Sanko might be your best option.

    I know Loblaws stores might carry some Nissin cup products but don't know this curry version personally. Now I want one too!

    great idea, haven't been to Sanko this year! and I have to revisit T&T on Cherry st, was there a few months ago but didn't see it then, I was in a rush because they were closing soon so I might have overlooked it - other options are a bit more complicated as we don't drive!
    thank you so much for great tips! my highest recommendation for this product, I love to eat it with a sunny side up egg and it's just awesome!

    Pacific Mall has just about everything Asian you could imagine. I used to live close by and used to love going there.

    thank you - we don't drive so, so far since I have been in Canada (4yrs) I have been there only once but I could go again and at least buy a few of them if I find them

    I hope you find them there. If not, maybe you will find something else you like? Have fun !

    For T&T Superstore: Trying to recall the TTC route-72-Pape bus? The one that goes to Greektown/Danforth also loops through Cherry St after leaving the Esplanade downtown. You'd have to check the TTC site for routing/times. Grocery store is at 222 Cherry St-it looks to be a little south of where the TTC routing is aka you'll have to walk there from the bus stop.

    TTC says the downtown part of route is now 172 and it goes to Cherry St. Route overlaps with 72-Pape. http://ttc.ca/Service_Advisories/Rou...2_Pape_J14.jsp
    @Toronto gal-I found online that the side of Sanko's store got a pop culture mural. Saw the project video online somewhere during the summer. Very cool art!

    @greeny I have not tried to take transit to Pacific Mall (went by car with friends a few years ago) from downtown Toronto but so want to see other places along Steeles Ave. E. before PM (isn't there a newish mall opposite Pacific Mall, on south side of Steeles?). I remember there's a small mall next door (east of PM) that had a large grocery store with so many food products. Was just stunned at the varieties of food items for sale. And my friend got me attached to the want-want type of rice crackers that are sweet&salty. Now I get them at Nations Foods in Hamilton when I am there.

    It's been a few years since I've been to PM. I'm not sure about anything new being built but there are a lot of Asian markets along Steeles traveling all the way down into Markham.

    Whoa! I've never tried the Mama Pad Thai noodles (will try and find it next time I am shopping). I am addicted to Mama Tom Yum noodles...they are so bad for my health but taste so good.

    @ OP: Amazon is wayyyyyyyyyyyyyy overpriced.

    I check over there a few times a year, the selection varies. never saw this rice but sometimes, last time, like a year and a half ago? they had nissin curry ramen which is excellent.
