The top 20 eats at Taste of the Danforth 2013

Posted by Sarah Ratchford / August 12, 2013

Taste of the DanforthThe Taste of the Danforth turned 20 this year and to celebrate hundreds of local restaurants and food vendors set up street-side to dole out delicious street eats, lemonade and sudsy beverages. The Mayor was there and so were 1.5 million other fun-seekers looking to have a good time and let their hair down a bit.

Relive the experience in our slideshow of the 2013 Taste of the Danforth.

Burger Stomper is a welcome addition to the family of restaurants on the Danforth. The seafood at Kritamos was simply awesome, specially when you paired the garlic aioli with the the filet of sole (OMG). The Lamb Skewers and the Duck Skewers were soooooo good from Numbers that they didn't have any left to open for Sunday. Fresh made loukoumades was such a treat, and the Halo-Halo from Tsaa was such a refreshing thirst quencher. The Lamb or Chicken Rosemary Pies from Ouzeri were, are and will always be my standard for what Taste of the Danforth means to me.

Top 20 must include the roasted Pork panini from Cafe Fiorentina along with their mini macaron ice cream sandwiches in spiced vanilla and chocolate.

You also somehow missed the fabulous meatball sliders from Pizza Libretto.

I'm voting for the free samples of Tums Refreshers.

How did that lobster make the list? It was horribly dry and overcooked

Better title: "20 pictures of food Sarah Ratchford took with a zoom lens from 2 feet away"

It is really sad that there are only a handful of festivals like this a year. Same with good music festivals. Same with anything really. In comparison to other major cities Toronto is a cultural desert! I moved to London, UK and there are dozens of festivals every weekend in addition to permanent markets that happen every week! Come on Toroto, get your shit together.
Other Cities: Montreal
