This is a guide to taking a day trip to Toronto, whether you’re looking to try new foods, visit local attractions, or catch a live show!
Yuzu No Hana: This Japanese restaurant offers oyster shooters, sushi platters, seafood hot pots, and more!
Brothers Food and Wine: Sample good wine, Cornish hen, gnocchi, and more.
La Banane: Delicious french fare including the Eurobass en Croute, a full fish covered in golden latticed pastry.
More Casual Fare
Torteria San Cosme: This bright and colourful spot in Kensington market offers delicious Mexican fare, mostly consisting of sandwiches on custom-made pan teleras.
Chimac: Loaded plates of Korean fried chicken! Order several different dishes as share plates to snack and drink with friends.
Ice cream: Try Sweet Jesus for coated soft serve cones, Eva’s Original Chimneys for the popular churro cone, or Arctic Bites for Thai-inspired rolled ice cream!
The Second City: This comedy club is an absolute must for anyone who loves to laugh! Second City offers spectacular shows and hilarious casts, and has such famous alumni as Stephen Colbert, John Candy, Tina Fey, Bill Murray, and Jane Lynch.
Ripley’s Aquarium of Canada: Take the kids, grandkids, or really anyone along to this large aquarium! This is fun for all ages with hundreds of species on display in modern and inventive tanks.
The Royal Ontario Museum: Come see a constantly revolving display of exhibits on things like the Franklin exhibition, Wildlife Photography of the Year, The Last Tattooed Women of Kalinga, and Out of the Depths: The Blue Whale Story.
Air Canada Centre: Cheer on the Blue Jays or the Raptors! Don’t worry if you’re not a die hard fan, we’ll never tell. Catching a game at the ACC is always good for an afternoon or evening of excitement and entertainment!
