Restaurants in Toronto

 

Restaurants in Minneapolis
Thanks to the multicultural make-up of this vast city, Toronto has over 10,000 eateries offering a multitude of different cuisines.

Good quality and great value restaurants abound in Toronto, with different cuisines featured in separate areas. College Street offers some of the city's best Italian restaurants and trattorias, and Greek food is best enjoyed in the Danforth area. Authentic Chinese restaurants are located (not surprisingly) in Chinatown around Dundas and Spadina, and also north of the downtown core in Markham; while Gerrard Street East is a great area to get good Indian grub.

Expats should also be sure to watch out for the many food festivals popping up around the city. Toronto also does a Summerlicious and Winterlicious prix fixe event each year, which many restaurants participate in. It’s an excellent way for those on a budget to try some of the city's finer dining establishments.

It is customary to tip 15 percent for good service in restaurants in Toronto.
