The Best Onion Rings in Toronto
The best onion rings in Toronto can be found at chippies and fast food joints that take pride in making their heavy, hearty foods from scratch. The rings on this list are cut by hand, dipped and fried to order, seasoned generously, and served immediately. Suitable as a snack or side, this favourite alternative to fries is still salty and crisp on the outside, while the onion itself provides a sweet, soft counterpoint.
Here are the best onion rings in Toronto.
Those in the know go "frings" (half fries, half rings) when ordering classic cheeseburger combos at this retro fast-food restaurant near Kipling Station. If you want to truly revel in the goodness of deep-fried onions, skip the fries altogether and go all hoops - a side of rings is $3.98.
At this Danforth chip shop, a basket full of expertly seasoned rings ($5) starts with hand-cut red onions lightly coated in an organic house (or gluten-free) batter. They're served up with a choice of 10 house dipping sauces (try the curry mayo); sub them in for chips in part of a fish dinner or enjoy as a snack on their own.
Thick-cut onion rings are hand-dipped to order, then tossed in the fryer for puffy, heavily-battered results. Don't bother with a small order ($3.50) - upsizing to large ($4.50) is the only way to go. Even still, regulars at this Scarborough joint will complain that each order yields too few.
