I have been trying to do some research for a trip that I have coming up next month to Toronto, ON Canada. In some ways, this is a pilgrimage of sorts, as the purpose of the trip is for me to secure a visit to the lone remaining active major league baseball stadium in which I have never seen a game. It also made me realize that with the exception of Mexico City, it is the largest metropolitan area in North America to which I have not visited (I did have an unintended flight layover at their airport once, but don't count that as a visit).
My flights will be in and out of BUF on July 3rd and 6th, respectively. I am hoping to score a beef on weck, likely at Charlie the Butcher
and some wings at Duff's
, while passing through Buffalo. The drive north should also allow for a stop at the Falls, and I believe I have time in Toronto for the Hockey Hall of Fame.
Unfortunately, other than my Canadian friends telling me that I should definitely make a stop at a Tim Horton's, I have been able to find very little food recommendations for the Toronto area. For a city of roughly six million people, which is the population total in between the cities of Los Angeles and New York here in the States, I find it hard to believe that there isn't *something* I should try to find. I know that natives of Montreal aren't the friendliest of people to the natives of Toronto, but have any of the Montreal-centric smoked meats or bagel places navigated to Toronto? I do admit that, other than hearing The Swedish Chef say the word "poutine,"
I am less interested in eating it, but may consider one stop just to mark it off the list.
Any suggestions would be greatly welcomed.
