The perfect marriage! Toronto’s Sunnys Chinese is known for its mouthwatering cuisine from Guangdong-inspired soft tofu, and Hong Kong-style French toast. The dish they really recommend is the ‘husband and wife’ Sichuan beef. It’s composed of tripe and shank with chili oil and peanuts.

Carousel Bakery – Peameal bacon sandwich

If there’s a dish that defines Toronto, it’s the iconic Peameal bacon sandwich that you will only find at the St Lawrence Market – Carousel Bakery.

“Be prepared to queue, and eat it au naturel, with just the meaty juices or slather on a lick of mustard. Or go really wild with the breakfast version: furnished with a fried egg and cheese,” shares National Geographic. And we couldn’t agree more.

Where: 93 Front Street E

Henry’s – Shrimp toast

National Geographic boasts about Henry’s combination of “Asian and European flavours” using Canadian produce. Stop by Henry’s a try its Shrimp toast. Simple yet mighty. It features lemongrass aioli and mustard.

Where: 920-922 Queen Street W

Osteria Giulia – Focaccia di recco

Last but certainly not least is Osteria Giulia – Michelin Guide awarded italian restaurant. Though National Geographic gives props to its Nova Scotia lobster and grilled sea bass, they praise its focaccia di recco – stuffed with mild stracchino cheese, baked and served with extra virgin olive oil and sea salt.
