Little Fin: "The wedge potatoes are amazing, and even more amazing when topped with lobster. Yes, they do lobster poutine, which may be the most beautiful words we have ever heard in the Canadian-English language."
Planta: "The wine and beer list isn't entirely vegan. Keep an eye out, veggie-loving friends."
Maha's: "Try a honey-cardamom latte, but be warned that it may ruin you for all other lattes."
One of the benefits of having a multi-cultural town is the great food that comes with the new residents. There are over 70 ethnic groups living alongside one another and each has brought their native cuisine with them. Toronto has scored big time in the food department and has a head-spinning, belly-expanding array of restaurants that have turned this city into a haven for foodies and gourmands. There’s fantastic food to be found in every neighborhood and best of all, it’s usually within walking distance. It’s not unusual to find a great burger joint alongside a Mexican restaurant serving tacos beside an Indian curry joint serving Vindaloo chicken. You can literally eat your way around the world without going bankrupt. City chefs have soaked up the international vibe as well and offer signature dishes and cooking styles that simply astonish the palate. Don’t come to Toronto and expect to diet. Come to eat!
