5 epic food trends that need to come to Toronto right now

Toronto's hottest food trends currently consist of over the top ice cream cones, rainbow bagels and poke. While these offerings are tasty and racking up the likes on Instagram there are other new food items I'd like to see added to the mix.

Here are five food trends that need to come to Toronto right now.

Sushi Burger
These epic burgers are the latest fad to hit Instagram. Since Toronto is currently infatuated with sushi burritos it's perhaps only a matter of time until we get to try these.

Raindrop Cake Toronto

Raindrop Cakes
Yes, these jelly like cakes have been floating around at Toronto events like Taste of Asia but there is no permanent location in the city to get your hands on one.

Doughrito Toronto

Doughritos
This doughnut burrito hybrid has been popularized by California's Surfin' Donuts and consists of your classic breakfast burrito stuffed with glazed doughnuts.

Rainbow Grilled Cheese

Rainbow Grilled Cheese
This sandwich went viral after Hong Kong's Kala Toast debuted the menu item and now it can be found all over the world from grilled cheese joints in London to night markets in LA.

Al Pastor Ramen Toronto

Al Pastor Ramen
California Asian-Mexican restaurant Rakken Tacos recently introduced ramen al pastor to the menu - it's a bowl of dry ramen topped with lemongrass al pastor.
