I'm a USA citizen, and I'm considering going through Ontario on my way from a stop in Detroit as we head to New York. I don't think our schedule will allow a detour into the center of Toronto, but I will consider that, as noted below.
Mainly, my interest is distinctive foods and places, preferably not fancy (we're on the move) but rather tasty, memorable, unique. I can't think of any ingredient that my son and I won't eat, so just hearing about favorites is my goal. If you had to move far away, what places would you miss a LOT?
As to location, one possible route would be from Sarnia past London through Hamilton and on to Niagara. The other possible route would be via Windsor past London and on to Hamilton and Niagara.
It appears it would cost us a total of an extra 2 hours driving time to go to Toronto. I hesitate to do so, because we wouldn't have time really to take in Toronto itself. HOWEVER, if there is a certifiably authentic German-style Döner Kebab place in Toronto, as I once heard there was, then I think I'd go for it. They're impossible to find in the USA, and I've been hankering for them for over a decade since my last time in Germany.
Thanks in advance for any ideas!
