The Best Caesar Salad in Toronto
The best Caesar salad in Toronto satisfies a wide range of cravings — for crisp, zingy, savoury, umami goodness — while simultaneously patting you on the back for ordering greens. As a starter, meal, shareable side, or simply the best reason to leave your house, these are hard to beat.
Here is the best Caesar salad in Toronto.
At this Junction Triangle spot, a neighbourhood vibe is the perfect backdrop to a menu of casual bites done right. Adorned with punchy dressing, house-made croutons, and lashings of freshly-cracked black pepper and Parm, this Caesar salad is a classic that isn't likely to go out of style.
Tossed tableside, the Caesar at this King West spot has as much panache as anything else on the lavish menu. A classic steakhouse starter, it's also the best way to share lettuce, bacon, egg, white anchovy, Grana Padano, and croutons between two consenting adults.
Diners visit this Little Italy restaurant for tavern-style pizzas accompanied by appetizers and sides crafted with maximum flavour in mind. Few partnerships are as successful as a clam pie paired with a classic Caesar generously garnished with croutons, bacon, anchovies, and whisper-thin Parmesan shards.
A mountain of Parmesan hides other ingredients in this Bloordale Village restaurant's rendition of the classic Italian-American starter. But rest assured, from creamy dressing and crisp pancetta, to herbed croutons and fresh romaine, they're all beautifully accounted for.
With equal parts lettuce and tasty add-ins, the Caesar at this Dundas West spot is a shining example of owner Shant Mardirosian's more-is-more ethos. Big enough to share, it's jam-packed with golden, bite-sized bread cubes, crunchy bacon hunks, grated cheese, and a judicious amount of particularly zesty dressing.
If you're going to eat a Caesar salad, Toronto's quintessential castle steakhouse is the place to do it. Glam up your table at this Casa Loma locale with the theatrics of a tableside salad for two (or more). Then take your time savouring every lemony, cheesy bite as you take in the surreal surroundings.
Niçoise olives, Emmental, chopped egg, twee lentils, and croissant croutons (ooh la la) make for a Caesar that's as effortlessly chic as a Parisian at this stylish bistro in St. James Town. This salad may not be strictly traditional but it's an intriguing take that never disappoints.
Inside this Etobicoke restaurant you can imagine a time when lunch began with a stiff Martini, cigar smoke wafted through dining rooms, and diners weren't fussed about where ingredients came from as long as they tasted good. As old-school as they come, the Caesar here delivers exactly what you want — crunchy, creamy, savoury satisfaction.
Before surrendering to the Fun Guy or Cacio e Carne at this Financial District adjacent restaurant, diners take the edge off with loaded Caesar salads. A combination of baby gem lettuce, thick-cut bacon, anchovies, and croutons, and topped with Parmesan, dressing, and chives, this salad requires a knife, a fork, and a friend who wants to share.
