Born-and-raised in downtown Toronto, Ashley Allinson has always made of point of trying new food. Over the years, Ashley has come across many of the best (and worst) restaurants, greasy spoons, watering holes, food courts and food trucks in the Six.

With so many places to choose from, so many different food cultures and such high turn-over, the Toronto Food Blog is for the budget-conscious reader who wants to know what, where and when to eat in Toronto.

Tried a great place not yet reviewed, need a recommendation or want to leave feedback? Let’s talk!

Thanks for reading, and happy eating!

    Hi Ashley,

    Been following you for awhile and love all your recommendations. I recently came across a restaurant that just re-launched. Its called Wilder Foods and I enjoyed my experience there. The staff was great, and the food was delicious. You should definetly check it out! Its located on 382 Keele St.
