Visiting Toronto for the first time

mangomeat | Oct 27, 201311:18 PM

A friend and I are visiting Toronto for the first time next week and we'd like to make it the best trip ever.

We're in our late 20's and from Montreal. Food-wise, we're trying to find places that are good value but also essential, amazing eats that Toronto has to offer (best pizza or burgers, for example).

So far, we're thinking of eating at:

- Pizzeria Libretto
- Capitano's Burgers
- Fresco Fish n Chips
- Queen Schnitzel (is this any good?)
- Soma Chocolatemakers
- Bakerbots Bakery

What do you guys think of those places? Does anyone have other suggestions for some cool restaurants?

As far as activities and things to do go, we're looking for anything that's unique to Toronto and fun/interesting in early November. Parking advice is also appreciated since we're going to be visiting by car. For instance, is there parking around Kensington or the Distillery District, and how expensive is it?

We're planning on visiting Kensington Market and the Distillery District, but are there any more interesting neighbourhoods or streets? Does anyone have suggestions for specific shops or restaurants in Little Italy? Is Chinatown worth a visit? Also, is the peameal sandwich at St. Lawrence Market worth it, or is there something better to try at the market?

We're also going to be having lunch at the 360 restaurant, not so much for the food, but for the experience. And we'll be catching a show at The Guvernment to make the trip more interesting.
