If you’ve been keeping up with my daily articles, you probably can tell by now that I’m kind of a foodie. I love to check out the new (and old!) restaurants all around the city and on my 6 months away on exchange in Switzerland back in university me friends and I affectionately refer to our many travels as “eating our way through Europe.” Most recently I was selected as one of eight travel and food writers to head to France to go to their Gastronomy Festival which pretty much solidified the fact that I love eating good food to the world. But, with a background in communications and a passion for travel, I may not always be the most qualified person to tell you about what I like (and don’t like lol). So that’s why ChefsFeed is my latest and greatest find. Leaving the food reviews up to the pros themselves, ChefsFeed conveniently tells you by city where to eat and what is currently #trending when it comes to food. And it’s safe to say that I’ve added this site to my morning reading list.
Wondering where I’m eating right now? Here are my top five “go-to” restaurants in Toronto! What are yours?
The Drake Hotel
A classic gem along the Queen West strip, I’ll never get sick of the weekend brunch eggs benny or having a cocktail on their rooftop patio. I was ecstatic to say the least when they opened their 150 outpost.
The Harbord Room
As a UofT grad, this restaurant quickly became our favourite spot to go to after a long Saturday of studying when we need a break and some good food. Still to this day, I am always impressed with their delicious menu.
The quickest way to my heart is with a burrito. But, I may consider it if a taco is involved. Playa Cabana’s authentic Mexican menu is defiantly worth exploring. And the best part? There are four locations across the city so odds are you are close to one right now.
The pizza here is defiantly worth the wait. With a host of variations and varieties, you are bound to find one that is perfect for you. Or if you are me? Your indecision will get the best of you and you’ll end up having to split two different ones. But hey, that’s what friends are for!
The Good Son
Under the culinary direction of Vittorio Colacitti, each dish created at The Good Son is expertly created to infuse a range of flavours to perfection. This cozy and intimate restaurant makes you feel like you’ve stepped into someone’s living room to relax for a delicious evening with friends.
