The Best Shakshuka in Toronto

The best shakshuka in Toronto is a breakfast staple on Middle Eastern menus, though it's a savoury and hearty enough food that'll you find it satisfies all day long. The joy of eating this dish is all about breaking runny egg yolks into a bright red tomato sauce, but I'm also a big fan of adding in sausage, goat cheese or labne like many on this list do.

Here is the best shakshuka in Toronto.
