The Best Caesar Salad in Toronto

The best Caesar salad in Toronto is typically defined by roughly chopped romaine hearts, crunchy croutons, parmesan, an anchovy-based dressing, and our usual Canadian fave, bacon. But this doesn’t stop Toronto innovators from constantly experimenting with these core building blocks to make this classic the flavour bomb it can truly be. 

Here is the best Caesar salad in Toronto.
