Eating and Drinking In Toronto

With more than 7,000 restaurants, eateries, bars and breweries spilling across Toronto’s urban sprawl, it is hardly surprising that such a culturally diverse city has something to satisfy the most discerning diner. From a quick pit-stop at a road side hot dog stall, to admiring the views from the world’s highest wine cellar atop the CN tower, visitors will find plenty to sustain themselves for a busy day of sightseeing.

More traditional Canadian local produce is savored in the stalls of the St Lawrence and Kensington Markets and in popular restaurants, such as the Canoe Restaurant and Bar, where Albertan Beef, Nova Scotian Lobster and Quebec cheeses take pride of place on the menu. But by steering beyond the tourist beaten trail through the rather pricey Yorkville and Lake Side areas, travelers can get the best for their money.

The Distillery District east of downtown Toronto is the perfect place to spend an afternoon or evening wandering the historic, pedestrianised streets, stopping to sample the offerings of the many small breweries dotted about the place. Particularly notable is the Mill Street Brewery, voted the 2009 winner of Canadian Brewery of the year Awards.

For those looking to experience a more Italian vibe, head to Little Italy on College Street West, where small, family-run Italian restaurants reside aplenty and promise pizza, exceptional hospitality and a lively atmosphere.

Other areas deserving a visit include Little India, found on Gerrard Street, between Greenwood and Coxwell Avenues. Wander round the meandering market stalls and soak up the exotic colours and smells of a wide range of authentic produce, before sampling the menus on offer at the many Indian, Pakistani, Bangladeshi and Afghanistani restaurants and cafes found here, all of which are cheap, cheerful and a far cry away from the bog standard, fast-food fare.

If you fancy a late night bite to eat or a drink, why not head to one of the city’s two China Towns; the first extending along Dundas Street west to Spadina Avenue and the second, East China Town, a somewhat smaller, although fast-growing mix of Chinese and Vietnamese restaurants and shops located on Broadway Avenue and Gerrard Street.

Wherever you end up of course, one thing’s for sure, as you head home after a day of gluttonous excess, you’ll want a comfortable and affordable bed within stumbling distance. Why not head to ‘HI- Toronto’ on Church Street? A conveniently central location makes this Toronto Hostel, with its roof top deck and great reviews, the perfect place to continue the party.
