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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
