TOP 5 PLACES TO EAT IN TORONTO

I have been living in the Toronto area for almost 2 years now and I have finally compiled my favorite restaurants in Toronto. The city is well known for it’s diverse food options because let’s face it, what else is there to do in Toronto other than eat food?! It’s not like Vancouver where we have beautiful mountains all around us (haha, joking… kind of). But Toronto, you do win the award for “Canadian city with the best food” (I just made that award up)

 
 

HANABUSA CAFE

WHAT DID YOU SAY?! JAPANESE SOUFFLE PANCAKES?! SAY NO MORE! These Japanese-inspired souffle pancakes are the fluffy, jiggly, heavenly goodness that you have been waiting for your entire life. They are a little on the expensive side with their original plate being around $12 but it is well worth it! Different flavors and different styles. Their cafe is also extremely aesthetic to satisfy your Instagram needs.

Check out their menu here.

SEVEN LIVES

Grilled Pollo Tacos

Grilled Pollo Tacos

Tuesday? Taco Tuesday? This is where you need to be! It is a small little taco joint with not a lot of space and extremely crowded. That’s how you know it is good. Their menu is a variety of really cool different types of tacos, including shrimp and octopus! Everybody needs some tacos in their life.

Check out their website here.

It is also conveniently located right next to Hanabusa Cafe with a bunch of little shops nearby. You’ll also be in Chinatown so hey, have some breakfast at Hanabusa Cafe and tacos for lunch at Seven Lives!

 

PAI

Pai is where you go to get your Thai craving fix in downtown Toronto. A menu full of authentic Thai food with a cozy, vibey-restaurant, this is one of my favorite spots. It is always busy, make sure to make a reservation before hand!

KINTARO IZAKAYA

Who doesn’t love late night sushi? Kintaro Izakaya is open late night until 1am on weekdays and 2am on weekends. They have a cute Japanese vibe in their restaurant and their sushi is great quality! (That says a lot coming from a Vancouver girl where she can get amazing sushi!

MILDRED’S TEMPLE KITCHEN

Satisfy your Sunday brunch needs here. A great place for families, dates, friends and business meetings. The food is delicious and it is ALWAYS busy here. They do not take reservations on weekends and the wait can be up to an hour or longer. Luckily there is a plaza nearby with a starbucks or other shopping centers that you can waste time at.

Their mango-tangerine mimosa is a must try! (It is not on the menu)
