We're visiting Toronto for the first time, from Boston. We'll be coming through NOTL, and plan to chow down there. But don't know much about the food scene in Toronto. We're staying at the Metropolitan and were psyched to see that there's a great dim sum place right in the hotel. But then we looked at the prices--Sheeesh! I think we'll try Rol San, which looks more our speed, price wise.
But what should a foodie from Boston be sure to try? We're omnivores, and love hearty, peasant food, but given that it's summer time, we'll probably want to stay away from anything really heavy. Anything in Toronto that we don't see much in New England? We're not looking for "fancy shmancy"--we can do that at home. But what's special in your town? And what's the best place to try it?
Did I read that there's a great market in town? What to look for in those parts? Thanks in advance!
