Late Nite Eats: Episode 13 - Toronto

Welcome to Toronto

The city is expanding like crazy and overflowing with new restaurants and venues because of it. The energy and overall kindness is infectious. My family living here totally helped make this one of my favorite city visits so far!

Where I Ate

Chantecler: Loved the vibe and decor of this restaurant, it had an old-school home feel but on the contrary served modern food. The classic techniques of chef Colin Rayner really came through in the execution of his food!

Food sampled:

  • Half-Stuffed Chicken: Chicken Gravy, Marinated Mushrooms and Greens
  • The Royale: Cheese and Accomponiments Traditionnels

Petit Potato: The desserts may take the eye and social media spotlight, but the true value here is in the savory items. Great Pan Asian executions by chef Fiona Cheung!

Food sampled:

  • Red Bean Matcha Golden Toast: Butter and Custard-dipped Toast Stack with Red Beans and Matcha Ice Cream
  • Purple Yam Waffle: Served with Vanilla Ice Cream

Night Owl: Amazing venue that gives off a Brooklyn-like vibe because of it's cement graffiti, original video games, classic drinks, and solid food by chef Josh Sexsmith. There's a live music venue downstairs, which is a great value add.

Food and drink sampled:

  • Fish Tacos: Tortilla, Cabbage, Fried Crunch, Lime
  • Mac & Cheese: Served with Crunchy Bacon
  • Creamsicle Float: Vodka, Orange Soda, Vanilla Ice Cream

My Toronto Tip

Go to the following places: Pho Hung on Spadina, Le Select for Brunch, St. Lawrence Market, and order the Peameal bacon sandwich at Carousel Bakery!
