Toronto is a melting pot of various cultures and backgrounds from all over the world—and that diversity truly shows in the city’s variety of food options. There’s a reason you can find a restaurant on almost every block. If you’re planning a trip to Toronto for CHEST 2017, take a break from the convention center and stop by the following restaurants.
The Badali Bar and Cucina
You are just 3 minutes away from pillow-like gnocchi and margherita pizza. Follow your nose to find The Badali Bar and Cucina (156 Front St W, Toronto, ON), specializing in traditional Italian dishes.
Lamesa Filipino Kitchen
Fillipino food? Not a problem. Just a 10-minute Uber drive from the Metro Toronto Convention Center you’ll find Lamesa Filipino Kitchen (669 Queen St W), a restaurant that provides a modern twist to your favorites like lumpia and lechon.
Canoe Restaurant & Bar
It just wouldn’t be right if we didn’t mention a restaurant that caters to Canadian fare. Canoe Restaurant & Bar (66 Wellington St W, Toronto, ON), a swanky space that boasts exceptional views of the city, is also home to Canadian food. If you’re interested in taking yourself out to a fancy dinner, this is the place to go.
Banh Mi Boys
Ever tried French and Vietnamese fusion? Banh Mi Boys (392 Queen St W, Toronto, ON), a quick-bite eatery located in the Chinatown neighborhood, is sure to provide you with a traditional Vietnamese flavor on top of a baguette.
In a rush? Pick up a quick bite from Allwyn’s Bakery (81 Underhill Dr, North York, ON), Toronto’s Jamaican and West Indian food hub. Pick up a Patty, grab a Ting, and you’re set for lunch.
