As you may have noticed, I was in Toronto for quite a while. Which means… I got to eat a lot of food when I was there. Although I don’t have in depth discussions about taste and texture, here’s my list of favorite restaurants (in no particular order).
I’m getting a bit hungry just thinking about them…
This restaurant is so consistently good that I just keep coming back to it. I found this spot a trip ago (see Top 3 Spots from Toronto Trip #3), and I just got hooked. I also tried the other affiliated restaurants because they have slightly different items on the menu. I liked them, too, but I liked Playa Cabana’s selection the most.

I love this place because everything. This place serves amazing drinks and also amazing food and it’s located in my favorite place in Toronto, the Distillery. This place probably the best pulpo we’ve had, and I am never disappointed when I come here.

This place made me appreciate Greek food for real. No, not fast slow food Greek salads, but actual dishes that you take your time eating and savoring the taste. Y u m. Because this place is so amazing, it does get crowded. We lucked out and found seats on the day we went here, but we’d conditioned ourselves to be ready to eat elsewhere before we even tried. We didn’t even have to wait! So worthwhile.

If you are somehow craving for Filipino food, this is the place to go. I admit that it’s a bit of a trek to get there, but it was worth it. And yes, you can trust me (and my family) when it comes to judging Filipino food. We ordered these and even ordered extra dishes to take home. Yup, we liked it that much.

Wow, this place was amazing. We went here during my last weekend in Toronto, and I guess we unintentionally saved the best for last because this was my best sushi experience during my grand detour. We mostly went for aburi style nigiri, but we also tried other dishes. It was such a great dinner that I miss it already.
