Queen West Eats

A few of my readers have asked what some of my favourite spots are on Toronto’s Queen West strip for a night out, late-night snack or even lunch. So without hesitation, I give you the tasty trio that make up my weekend walks on Queen West:

 

1. Lisa Marie

An Elvis-inspired creation by the owner of the famous Fidel Gastro’s food truck, has quickly become one of the trendiest restaurants on Queen West. With a tapas-inspired menu, Lisa’s reclaimed wood surface décor, always-inventive dishes, and massive homage to Elvis take snack-bar experiences to a whole new level. Try the Pork Belly Cheese Thang that sits on a bed of fried crunchy cheese, topped with a cilantro cherry tomato salsa and drizzled with a chili basil aioli, or the perfectly fried Pad Thai Fries dusted in a delicious mixture of siracha sauce, butter and lime juice.

2. LaMesa Filipino Kitchen

Toronto’s Fashion district is home to one of Foodies Inked favourite sushi restaurants, To-ne Sushi. Beautifully plated dishes decorated with unique handcrafted designs, are filled with fresh pieces of sushi and sashimi that effortlessly flow through this lovely family-owned restaurant. Crowd-favourites like the Green Dragon roll with tempura battered shrimp topped with avocado, or the Spicy Salmon roll with a delectable choice of salmon, avocado and a spicy Japanese mayonnaise, are highly endorsed after an extensive day of shopping.

3. To-ne Sushi

Stop by LaMesa Filipino Kitchen for a modern take on Filipino cuisine. This hip and cool Queen West restaurant features bar tables and clean wall décor, and serves a killer prix-fixe Chef’s tasting menu. The traditional aromas, textures and flavours of Filipino dishes are fused with Spanish, Mexican and American influences. Owners Less Sabilano and Chef Boquilla embrace traditional Filipino fare, while exploring world cuisine with new daily menu items, such as sampling platters for sharing, and à la carte snacks.
