Restaurants and Eating out in Toronto, Canada
When it comes to eating out in Canada, you don't feel the "obligation" to try their national dishes or their local food as you would in other countries. But I guess that's the beauty of Canada, you don't get people telling you what to eat and what's a must try for dishes; you can go off on your own little hunt. They do have some popular cuisines there though, such as Italian, Chinese and Greek cuisines. And though most of the food isn't native to Canada, they do it in their own style, and there're certain places not to be missed on your trip here.

For starters, head for Pangaea Restaurant located on 1221 Bay Street, Toronto. Established in 1996, this beautiful restaurant with its high ceilings and wooden floors bring a sense of simplicity to the table, giving you an upscale fine-dining yet casual experience. Wild mushroom risotto and grilled calamari with beurre noisette are the signature dishes of the house, but leave a little room for desert as its known to be the best in town too.

For those who're hungry and in the mood for some huge portions, head for JW's Steakhouse located on 525 Bay Street, Toronto. With their featured 16-oz bone-in fillet and probably the biggest shrimp cocktail ever, you'd definitely be filling full after your visit to this traditional steakhouse. Have a scotch to round up your perfect dining experience in this intimate little restaurant that exudes nothing but warmth and friendliness.

If you haven't already been to Toronto's world famous CN tower, this would be a perfect chance where you can mix both a panoramic 360 rotating view together with your dining experience. Located right at the top, Restaurant 360 is the world's highest restaurant which offers unparallel views, fine food and a selection of over 550 different kinds of wines from its very own wine cellar in the sky. For such a fancy restaurant, a real plus point is that everything's affordable (not counting your sudden urge to go for thousand dollar wines).

While most parts of the city wind down, the Greek area of Danforth is just warming up; and one excellent place to check out would be Christina's on 492 Danforth Ave. Known as the "landmark" of Toronto's Greek Town, this place offers authentic Greek and Mediterranean dishes such as made to order Souvlaki dinners, Mousaka and the chefs very own Kotopoulo Yemisto; stuffed chicken breast with spinach, onions, cheese and peppers. This place is more of a dinner and dance where you get the occasional belly dancer and the everyday live Greek band, giving you both a culinary and cultural experience you'd never forget.
