so bad...yet so good...

Ok. So as you can tell from my name, I love junk food. I have been even been known to go on fast food road trips (i.e. visiting the very first KFC). But its all good because I also run marathons.

But aside from the deep affection I have for waffle house and the food at small-town country fairs, I love the fast food in Toronto, particularly street meat (hot dog vendors), strawberry-filled timbits, and fries & gravy from Mt. St. Louis ski resort.

And now that I am back training for a new marathon & can up my caloric intake, I want to know: What else am I missing?

    1. i haven't tried it yet, but at the newish Reggie's Old-Fashioned Sandwiches they have deep fried mac 'n' cheese.

      the "fresser" at caplansky's ordered fatty should also meet your requirements. wash it down with his poutine!

            C'est Bon near Yonge and Lawrence has it on their menu.

            Here's a recent thread on deep friend mars bars in TO:

              Olde Yorke on Laird does deep fried Mars Bars but I've only seen it marked on their chalkboard so don't know if it's part of their regular menu or not.

                it's not on the regular menu but one day I asked for it and they had them.


          2. re: sleepy

            Had a deep fried mars bar and a deep fried easter creme egg last Saturday at St Andrews. It's good thing we only indulge once a year!

          3. mary browns fried chicken and wedges...mmmm!

              Where do you go for MB FC? I went to dufferin street a month or so ago and it was not special at all - greasy and slimy. Popeyes is much better than that. As a kid I ate at MB and it was good - where is the good location...or 2?

              1. re: deelicious

                i tired mary browns recently and don't get the fuss. though in the past i've only really known people to enjoy it in certain states of lucidity.

                the shake and bake crumb type texture doesn't appeal to me more than a nice bubbly batter.

            2. I think the fried panzerorri at Bitondo is the best fast food treat in all of Toronto. Fish and Chips is always good on Broadview. Swatow sweet and sour pork and fried rice! California Sandwich chicken with cheese! Those are my greasy fatty heart stopping pleasures! That's a good start.

                The panzi at Bitondo is good, but a bit dear at $6 considering there's nothing in it but sauce and cheese.
