I am not looking for the "Best of the Best" that Toronto has to offer. I have tried plenty of great 5 star restaurants in Chicago plus I'm heading up north on a budget.
I am willing to splurge on one dinner of my weekend getaway if you really think its worth going into debt for. But what I am really looking for are "Must Try" stops/shops/places in Toronto. Something I cannot get anywhere else. Something that is uniquely "Toronto."
FoodNetwork.com and TravelChannel.com doesn't really have anything substantial to say about Toronto's dining scene. All the Toronto websites I've looked up have had mixed reviews as to what the "Best" is .... and with the majority of those "best of Toronto" not actually in Toronto. Plus, I'm not looking for pretentious, hip, trendy food.
I am asking all of you people on Chowhound where I NEED to go when I am there. I've heard good things about your street food, so I'm definitely going to do that when I am walking around.
Chicago has its World Class restaurants, Molecular Gastronomy, Deep Dish Pizza, Hot Dogs, and Italian Beefs. Toronto, tell me what you have.... PLEASE!
