Danforth Roti Shop ~ 2844 Danforth Ave ~ (416) 690-1308

If you are looking for T&T food in Toronto’s east-end, Danforth Roti Shop is the spot. The hand-drawn menu focuses on the classics: doubles, polourie, saheena and mauby (my personal favourite to wash everything down). Be sure to ask for condiments, hot sauces and chutney, as they’re hidden away in the back and aren’t to…

The Best of 2015

Lots of great stuff happened in Toronto this past year, and the Toronto Food Blog was lucky enough to be part of the mix. We saw the closing of a local landmark, Jilly’s, the Blue Jays going deep into the playoffs, beer for sale at grocery stores, and some new leadership at City Hall. The…

Federick Restaurant ~ 1920 Ellesmere Rd ~ (416) 439-9234

Federick Restaurant is renowned for bringing Hakka food to Toronto. Well, Scarborough actually. And with a recent expansion into a new Markham location, these guys are obviously doing something right (their take-out bag suggests they’ve have been doing so for the past 20 years). I am taken here as a Father’s Day gift. My expectations were exceeded on many…

Wexford Restaurant ~ 2072 Lawrence Ave E ~ (416) 755-1229

I had “Breakfast at the Wexford” recently, drawn by the claim that they had cracked millions of Eggs over the years and had squeezed even more Oranges. Established in 1958, the Wexford Restaurant is somewhat of an institution in this part of Scarborough. I have them crack 3 more eggs for me to see what…

Joe’s Wings + Burgers ~ 2825 Danforth Ave ~ (647) 340-5500

Joe’s Wings + Burgers has recently opened in a gutsy/progressive spot on Danforth between Dawes and Victoria Park. This family-run joint is equipped for dining in, taking out or for delivery, and is just what this neighbourhood needed. I am pleased to say Joe’s is within walking distance of our place. It’s really nice to be able to get…

Armenian Kitchen – 1646 Victoria Park Ave – 416-757-7722

My Wife and I have enjoyed a lot of great dining experiences over the past few years. The food we experienced last night, though, might have been the best of the lot. Located in a strip-mall on Victoria Park Ave north of Eglinton, the Armenian Kitchen really lived up to its billing as some of the very best Middle…
