The top 25 eats from the first ever Taste of Toronto

Taste of Toronto kicked off earlier this week and continues today Sunday, July 27 from noon until 5pm. Boasting more than just a line-up of restaurant and booze vendors, the outdoor event also showcases an artisan marketplace, live demos, celebrity chef book signings, tasting classes and cooking workshops.

Held over four days in four-hour increments, line-ups were painfully long at some vendors while non-existent at others. While the marketplace only took cash, the restaurant vendors accepted an electronic payment system loaded with an imaginary currency called "crowns" (on par with the dollar). Each dish was priced between six and 10 "crowns" - which ultimately seemed to sway hungry atendees towards the biggest bang for their buck.
