Tasting Toronto

Looking for a fun food trip eh? Toronto might just be the spot for you! Spent Memorial Day weekend with some of my besties up in The 6 with our friendly neighbors to the North. It was a weekend FILLED with delicious bites, some lovely artwork and surprisingly a decent amount of education.

Continue reading to see where I ate as well as some fun sights to check out during a stay in Toronto. Without further ado, lets get into it! Up first… the sweets:

We did our fair share of dessert tasting in T.O., kicking off the trip with a stop at Hanabusa Cafe. Here we tried the custard souffle pancake which was out of this world!! I dream about these pancakes and wish we had some in Chicago! The sweet tooth trend continued throughout the weekend with stops made at Bake Shoppe, Butter Baker, Roselle, Cops, and Daango Cake Lab. Tap on the pics below to see what items and loved and where they are from.


Next rundown…the savory bites! Balancing out the sweeter side of things, we made sure to try a variety of eateries to satisfy our other cravings. Dirty Bird was one of first stops where we had amazing dry rub wings! On our first day we also stopped by Poutine fest which was an absolute treat. From there the trend of quality dining continued with tapas at Madrina, dip noodles at Momofuku noodle bar and Aburi sushi from Saku. We ate our way through Toronto with each meal being even better than the last!


On our last full day, we had brunch at FK. This restaurant is beautiful with simple yet delicious offerings that leave you feeling satisfied. I had the blood orange mimosa and Mac Daddy burger (which was amazing) followed up by some shared desserts. We tried the Panna Cotta as well as the lemon custard tart. Both were divine, but the lemon tart would be my favorite.


Not only is there a ton to eat in Toronto - I still have a few places I want to try - you can also learn a lot about the city going on a FREE tour of Casa Loma, check out the art from Graffiti Alley, and see the beautiful skyline from harbor. There is a ton to enjoy in Toronto and I look forward to my next visit!!
