Best of 2018

Happy New Year!  2018 was a fantastic year for the Toronto Food Blog, filled with great meals avec friends and family.  We tried a number of wonderful restaurants for the very first time, many of which were worth writing home about.  Here’s a recap of some of the finer moments from the past year… BREAKFAST…

M’Zaar ~ 668 Yonge St ~ (647) 350-0666

I’ve gotta be honest with you… it’s typically against my nature, in any city, to frequent restaurants located on the busiest street with pictures of their food in the window.  M’Zaar is truly an exception to this rule, though.  This place is something else.  One of my favourite spots for a quick bite around the Church…

Rusi ~ 7 King St E ~ (416) 977-4088

Schnitzel Queen is the stuff of legend.  A European diner located on Queen St E. in the heart of Moss Park, they’ve been serving-up enormous schnitzel sandwiches and scrumptious dinner plates for the past 25 years.  And while new owner Karl Hubsch wasn’t able to woo any investors on the Dragon’s Den, he sure does keep…

Salad King ~ 340 Yonge St ~ (416) 593-0333

With its large menu, reasonable prices and varying degrees of spice, Salad King (340 Yonge St) has been a Yonge & Dundas staple for some time.  Over the years it has grown from a Ryerson student hangout to a legit lunch-hour hot spot… reminding us that healthy, well-priced food can be found smack-dab in the…
