Casual Restaurants in Toronto

Jump to last reply

Hello, all! I am back with some more questions. This time, it's about food.

As I am traveling by myself and I'll be in Toronto for 2 full weeks (Free ticket using FF miles and I figured why not since I won't be going anywhere else this year because of high prices), I'm writing a list of some restaurants I'd like to possibly try.

I'm looking for casual or simple restaurants, some things which might not be common around where I live (I'm from the San Francisco area, which has a lot). I eat just about every single ethnic type of dish out there and the only thing I don't eat a lot of is seafood. Fish occasionally, but not seafood. I already have a few things in mind that I came across:

- I'd like to be brave enough and try The Hoof Cafe. Not sure if I will back out in the end, but it's on my list. If I do chicken out, where is a good place for brunch or breakfast? The hotel I am staying at does offer continental, but there might be a day in the week when I'll want a hot breakfast.
-One thing we don't get too much of in my area is Eastern European food. I saw a past thread here that mentioned a Hungarian restaurant on Yorkville called Country Style. Anyone other suggestions of other Hungarian places or other Eastern European style?
-It took me awhile to find it, but it looks like Greektown is on Danforth? Does the street have quite a few Greek restaurants down this road? Easy enough to just pick one if I were to walk along and just see what's inside?
-Of course I want to sample a few things in the Little Italy area. Which street is best for strolling down looking for a casual restaurant? Or is it easy enough to just wander around this section of town?
-Where can I get a good potato pizza? It isn't something that's really available where I live and I want to try it out.
-Where is the area in Toronto with a lot of Indian food? I am specifically looking for Northern/Punjab style as the southern dishes is a little too hot for me.
-What type of Chinese cuisine is in the Chinatown area? I might be getting a little too specific, but does anyone know if it is more Cantonese or Mandarin?
-A good crepe place
-I am also requesting some pub suggestions. Pubs or areas that will be showing world cup games since I will be there for part of it. I figure a few places in the Little Italy area will have something, but I am looking for other possible places too.
-Any other possible suggestions? Like I said, mostly casual...bistros, cafes, etc. I think during the time I am in Toronto, summerlicious will be around and I might check into that. They don't have a list of the restaurants participating up yet, but if it is worth checking out, I might look into it.

Thanks in advance!
