Toronto, Ontario is a massive, sprawling city. While the sheer number of things to do is daunting, one area where you could use some advice is in culinary matters. Toronto is a famous foodie city in Canada thanks to its massive convergence of international cultures. In order to put together a comprehensive one-day guide to eating in Toronto, I spoke with. JustFly is an online travel agency based out of North America and is very familiar with Toronto cuisine. They gave me a great spot for breakfast, lunch, and dinner in The Big Smoke.
The Lakeview Restaurant
A great place for breakfast in Toronto, The Lakeview is home to Toronto’s best and most varied eggs Benedict menu. Open 24 hours a day, it doesn’t seem like the kind of place that would be tailored for breakfast, but the Lakeview defies the odds. JustFly says it gets extra marks for offering great and low-cost drinks, excellent food, and a prime location at Dundas and Ossington, near Trinity Bellwoods Park. Speaking of which, Trinity Bellwoods is one of Toronto’s best parks, linking Dundas Street to the trendy Queen West neighbourhood.
Big Fat Burrito
Toronto is insanely famous for burritos. There are dozens of restaurants that specialize in burritos, but only one that made it on. The winner was Big Fat Burrito, which gets by on offering the best traditional burritos. While JustFly values unique menu choices, other burrito places in Montreal were actually docked marks for trying too hard to make burritos that were very niche choices. With that said, Big Fat Burrito does offer a breakfast burrito for those who are looking for something a little different. Big plus, the breakfast burrito is available all-day.
Formerly known as Gu, Kinka Izakaya is one of Toronto’s most popular Japanese restaurants. Despite being universally acclaimed, Kinka Izakaya is a semi-affordable restaurant with affordable options for both large or smaller groups. What makes it at Kinka Izakaya is the the insane atmosphere. Not for the light-hearted, Kinka Izakaya is party central. The staff yells, the sake flows freely, and the good vibes never die down. Featuring a Japanese fusion-laced menu, the food comes very well recommended from JustFly as well, despite its at times varied menus.
