Here are the best kosher restaurants in Toronto.
Doling out the "best shawarma in Toronto," this kosher spot is always bustling. Find hummus plates and schnitzel dinners at its North York and downtown locations. But don't sleep on the real star — baked-to-order laffa bread, packed with everything from fragrant falafel to that legendary shawarma and add-ons including veg, tahini and signature sweet mango sauce.
Kosher pizza is just one of the draws to this restaurant's two locations — both on Bathurst Street, in North York. Beyond a plethora of pies, diners flock to this eatery for fresh salads, pasta dishes, falafel plates and hearty Israeli breakfasts, complete with eggs, Israeli salad, toast, French fries and house-made hummus.
If gourmet herrings, schmears and spreads are like music to your ears, you'll swoon at the menu at this certified kosher eatery's two North York locations. On Bathurst, find assorted New York style bagels and bialys, along with sandwiches, wraps, pasta, even sushi. At the larger diner, on Lawrence Avenue West, sandwiches, burgers, tacos, and more are best sided with an order of Bubby's onion rings.
Beyond a daily lunch special, this North York restaurant offers diners oodles of kosher options, until 10:45 p.m., Sunday through Friday. Hearty brisket and smoked meat sandwiches, platters of ribs, pot pie, shish kebab and barbecued chicken are all ideal preludes to crisp apple strudel.
Prepared to the highest kashrut standards, every item on this Forest Hill restaurant's menu is a modern take on a classic. With a team preparing dishes inspired by countries near and far, the menu jumps from enoki beef rolls and gravlax tostadas to piri piri chicken and herb-crusted rack of lamb.
The sizeable number of menu items at this Middle Eastern spot on Eglinton Avenue West is reason enough to visit. Still, as regulars know, the real draw is that everything — from sabich platters and kebab-stuffed pitas, to hummus shawarma and falafel bowls — is freshly made and flavourful. The space can accommodate seated events of up to 60 or intimate dinners, with takeout and catering also available.
