Here are my picks for the top new Caribbean restaurants in Toronto.
Here's a roundup of some new food trucks to look out for in Toronto this summer.
For nearly 100 years (the bakery opened in 1918), the family-owned Toronto institution baked up loaves of bread, bagels, buns and baguettes in the Baldwin Village neighbourhood. Its doughy products also appeared on restaurants menus across the city - when you grabbed a sandwich at Caplansky's or Switzer's Deli, you were munching on Silverstein's rye.
New this summer is a festival based entirely on junk food. It's from the same people behind the Mac & Cheese Fest so you better get hungry now because the Junk Food Festival is slated to run from September 9 to 11 in the Toronto Star building, as well as in the parking lot at 1 Yonge St.
Here are my picks for the top patios in Roncesvalles.
- The third annual Toronto Food Truck Festival in support of SickKids will take place this weekend, July 29 to 31, at Woodbine Park. Expect at least 60 trucks along with live music in the fully licensed event space. Admission is free.
- Markham Food Fest is on July 30 and 31 at Metro Square (3636 Steeles Ave. E.). The event is free to attend and promises a wide array of Asian street food.
- Wenona Lodge hosts its monthly pig roast on Sunday, July 31. $35 buys you AYCE meat, two sides and one beer.
- The inaugural St. Lawrence Market Summer Series takes places on August 4. It's presented in partnership with The Food Dudes and this event will transform the south patio at the historic market into an oasis of food and music. General admission is $30 and includes two food tickets.
