Toronto for foodies

Let Toronto surprise you with a smorgasbord of creative culinary combinations. Here's our selection of the very best dining-out experiences. Enjoy!

The multicultural experience: from India to pure Canadian tradition.
Toronto's local cuisine reflects the city's incredible multiculturalism. Sample the best of this culinary melting pot with a trip to the Little India neighbourhood, located on Gerrard Street East between Greenwood and Coxwell, before trying one of the city's top gourmet restaurants. For Indian food fans, Mother India is a must. The Canoe restaurant at the top of the TD Bank Tower offers breath-taking views over the city and refined, traditional Canadian fare.
The world food experience: from Chinatown to Little Italy.
Continue your journey through a world of different flavours in the Dundas and Spadina districts. Here, in one of North America's biggest Chinatowns, wander among stalls laden with intriguing offerings. In the heart of the hustle and bustle, tuck into delicious dim sum, a Cantonese speciality. In the Little Italy quarter on College Street, enjoy some of Toronto's finest coffee. Cafe Diplomatico, known to the locals as The Dip, is an institution. You'll find a great choice of family restaurants here, as well as a wide selection of bars.
Traditional food in the city centre
Within striking distance of Toronto city centre, St. Lawrence Market is a must-see for all visitors who appreciate fresh produce and tasty dishes. We're sure you'll love this spot, recently voted the world's best market by National Geographic thanks to its architecture and host of little restaurants. Tuck into delicious fish and chips at Buster's Sea Cove, or sink your teeth into one of the Carousel Bakery's legendary bacon sandwiches. Not too far away is the historic Distillery District, home to more treats for the taste-buds.
The quirky experience: fine dining in a truck!
If you're lucky enough to be visiting Toronto in the summer, enjoy the local food trucks and their many culinary creations! These little trucks dotted around town serve up creative cuisine, generally based on fresh, local organic produce. Perfect for picnics, no park or beach is ever far from a food truck. Throughout the year, Toronto hosts a dizzying array of food festivals. May is all about the Veggielicious festival, and come June, Toronto Taste gets mouths watering all over town!
