Best foodie experience in Toronto?

It could be a cooking class or a meal at a restaurant. Or the hot chocolate at Soma. What's the most not-to-be-missed foodie experience here?

  1. O'Mei's Giant lobster 4 ways! No one does it better in TO!
    Stockyard's Southern Fried Chicken. Unless one heads down south.
    Simple Bistro's Elk or Venison. Great sauce as well.
    Saigon Star's Curry Dungeness Crab
    Peak Top's B-B-Q suckling pig. Especially fresh out of the oven.

      what four preparations do you order at o'mei?

    2. Parpadelle truffle butter pasta at Splendido during truffle season. Best dish in the city. Period.

      88 Harbord Street, Toronto, ON M5S 1G5, CA

      1. The pine nut tart at Massimo's is my fav desert in the city

        1. As an overall experience that instills that sense of "This could be nowhere but Toronto", I would say 360 at the CN Tower. Yes the food is OK, but the views are great and doubly enjoyable in good company.

              Canoe offers the '2nd best view' but the food is much, much better!! As a foodie, I'll chhose Canoe, as a tourist, the CN tower?!

                Agreed. The creamless mushroom soup while sitting in Canoe, followed by the Sticky Pudding for dessert.


            2. I'd say dinner at Ruby Watchco. It's all local foods, a different menu every day, super awesome food and LOTS of it. A really great experience.
