Five Local Finds at Taste of Toronto

As a restaurant festival that is home to local and international flavours, Taste of Toronto has edible offerings to satisfy any craving.


We were totally crushing on the (infamous!) burgers from Richmond Station — a Feast ON Certified eatery in downtown Toronto! They’re stuffed with braised short ribs and then grilled to a perfect medium rare.

In its second year with over 70 artisan producers, this food celebration serves up Toronto’s best tastes. Here are our top picks of locally-sourced delights:

1. Richmond Station‘s delectable Station Burger with beet chutney and OKA cheese. This flavourful burger packs a real punch with tender ground beef, creamy cheese and tangy toppings. The crunchy dill pickle and onion ring didn’t disappoint either! Best yet, you can get a version of this Feast ON-certified restaurant’s burger all year long.

2. Kew Vineyards just released a Sparkling Pinot Noir. Crisp, refreshing and perfect for warm weather. When Kew does bubbly, they do it well!

3. Carver‘s Wellington County slow roasted porchetta sandwich with spiced peach mostarda. Accompanied by a parsley-lemon slaw, this would make a perfect summer time lunch in the city.

4. Beau’s Lug Tread Ale is an Ontario-brewed staple! Their flagship beer is golden brown, handcrafted and uses certified organic malts and hops. Wash down any mild weather meal with this delicious brew.

5. Woolwich Dairy‘s goat cheese is as close to heaven as you can get. This Orangeville based dairy offers sinfully spreadable goat cheese with additions like figs, garlic, cranberry cinnamon and even vanilla! Spread on my friends, spread on.

There you have it! And if you missed this year’s Taste of Toronto, be sure to visit the participating restaurants while you tide yourselves over until next year’s festival!
