OUR FOOD FAVES IN T.O.


Dear Readers,

This post is seriously sooooo long overdue. BUT NOW WE ARE HERE.

Our past trip to Toronto was seriously a FOOD trip meant to satisfy my cravings, hunger, and desire to EAT… EAT GOOD… EAT YUMMY THINGS – and Toronto did NOT disappoint. The following places I’m about to share with you all, are my favorite food or drink joints in the SIX, or what’s better known as TORONTO!

WARNING: The following photos and stories will get you hungry.

All of the restaurants are ordered at random. (All of them ARE great)

1.) PAI 

Address: 18 Duncan St, Toronto, ON M5H 3G8

This place was so busy when we went, and after eating their food, I truly understood all the hype about this Thai restaurant. THEIR FOOD SPEAKS FOR ITSELF. I had the Khao Soi with braised beef and it was phenomenal. Jason, had the Chiangmai Beef Noodle soup and he was very, very, very happy as well.

2.) SANSOTEI RAMEN

Address: 115 Fort York Blvd, Toronto, Ontario

(multiple locations but this is the one we went to)

What more can I say… but I’m going to have to let the ramen pics speak for itself on this one.

I had their Tonkotsu… and the broth was next level heavenly.

3.) LAMESA RESTAURANT

Address: 669 Queen St W, Toronto, ON M6J 1E6

This restaurant took me back to my Filipino roots and they did that with lots of modern twists. As you all may know, I am Filipino and I’m always in search for good Filipino restaurants that will do my “Pinoy” taste buds justice when it comes to my homeland’s food. Surely, Lamesa DID THAT.

We had, sisig, adobo, and kare-kare from Lamesa, and I recommend all three dishes without any doubt in my mind!

4.) JOLLIBEE

Address: 15 William Kitchen Rd, Scarborough, ON M1P 5B7

Another place that got the inner Filipino kid in me bursting out tears of joy, was JOLLIBEE!

Jollibee is an iconic fast food chain in the Philippines – our version of Mcdonald’s, but with fried chicken, spaghetti and halo-halo. Jollibee directly represents the Philippines in many ways… and being able to eat there made me nostalgic and Jolli-happy!

5.) CAFE CANCAN

Address: 89 Harbord St, Toronto, ON M5S 1G5

This is the go-to place for every brunch lover out there! The cafe itself will satisfy all your IG food pics needs. From chic couches and pillows to beautiful mirrors and to pretty pink wall paintings, the cafe was the definition of PRETTY.

I had their Eggs Benedict and it was soooooo yummy!

6.) OXTAIL PHO & BÁNH MI

Address: 814 Dundas St W, Toronto, ON M6J 1V3

Jason is a serious pho fanatic, and we couldn’t had completed a trip out to Toronto without a pho stop.

We tried Oxtail, and the restaurant had some serious OG phos. I had their Oxtail pho and it was delicious… just thinking about it now, surely made me drool a little.

7.) UNCLE TETSU

Address: 65 Front Street West, York Concourse #222, Toronto, ON M5J 1E6

(multiple locations but this is the one we went to)

This cheesecake is so popular… so we had to try it too!

And I am so glad we did, because that cheesecake was so fluffy, so creamy, and just had the perfect level of sweetness. It was perfect in every shape, way and form! My personal favorite was the chocolate cheesecake!

8.) THE ALLEY

Address: 5 St Joseph St, Toronto, ON M4Y 0B6

Are we truly from an Asian decent if we don’t make time for bubble tea???

Of course, our boba addiction led us to The Alley. Another local popular spot who serves hearty milk teas and sweet fruity drinks.

I had the Brown Sugar Deerioca and it was… just… amaziiinnnng.

And with that, I’ll leave you guys hungry and craving for some good food.

When in Toronto check out these spots, and let me know what you think!
