The Six is a thriving city known for a unique culture and bright nightlife. One of the best ways to get to know Toronto is by enjoying the local food. Skip chain restaurants and bar menus if you visit, here are the four best places to eat in Hogtown.
4- King Place
This Pakistani restaurant will leave you full but wanting more at the same time. The food is seasoned thoughtfully and thoroughly: every bite is a new and delicious experience. King Place prides itself on keeping an authentic menu while making sure it caters to Toronto’s tastes at the same time. It’s not the fanciest restaurant to eat on this list, but you won’t care when you taste the food.
The area of town it’s in it’s best for most tourists, since you might see a side of the city you’d rather avoid. Luckily, the restaurant offers drive-up service, so that you can park, eat, and leave without having to climb out of your vehicle and into the wild streets. It’s a must-eat, though, if you want to be pleasantly surprised and have one of the best meals.
This Chinese restaurant knows how to draw in the crowds, but also holds its own as a place you’ll want to come back. Offering the gimmick of the big mac bao, which borrows flavors from McDonald’s, it will help you rethink what east Asian cuisine can be.
DaiLo isn’t all gimmicks, though. Its ingredient choices and the thoroughly thought out menu will guide you through what high-quality food should be. They put endless work into making sure every bite is perfect, you won’t care about the gimmicks after you’ve thoroughly enjoyed the rest of the menu.
2- Grey Gardens
If you want fresh seafood and aren’t willing to settle for anything less than the best- Grey Gardens is where you’ll find it. Nested in the heart of Kensington, this restaurant offers a vast array of wine to sip while you enjoy the lively atmosphere and beautiful decor. When the food arrives, it’ll leave you breathless.
Gorgeously plated, every meal looks like a work of art and tastes even better. Don’t shy away from ordering appetizers for the table, or a cheeky dessert to finish off the meal. The food deserves to be savored and enjoyed, so treat yourself to a beautiful experience.
1- Richmond Station
This gorgeous restaurant, owned by a winner of the show Top Chef Canada, is by far the best place to get to know the food in Toronto. Offering a daily menu that can change depending on what’s freshest or in season, it prides itself on making something delicious.
The meals it’s most famous for are the Station burger, a thick burger on a cheddar bun seasoned to the teeth- and their aged cheddar pierogies that are the epitome of comfort food. Even if you’re not from Toronto, their food is good enough to make you feel at home and to hunt for homes for sale in Toronto.
