This place is an old-school diner tucked inside the Three Star convenience store at 241 Niagara Street at Adelaide. There's a flimsy plywood wall separating the restaurant tables from the rows of Glad garbage bags, cat food and Easy-Off.
The UFO has a classic greasy spoon menu. A full breakfast is $4.95 ($5.50 after 11am) and a giant burger with bacon and cheese is $5.75. You can also get liver and onions, a hot hamburger sandwich and fish and chips.
The UFO and Three Star were opened up in 1982 by a local Greek family—hence the souvlaki on the menu and the old tourist posters of Greece on the wall. The place is currently run by a Vietnamese family. And why is it called the UFO? "I have no idea," the chef says.
