Queen West Food

QUEEN WEST FOOD DILEMMA

 

Eating out in West Queen West is not as easy as you think.  It’s not for the lack options… it’s due to too many options.  Each time I walk down Queen West it’s a revelation…

I love chowing down at as many eateries as I can in the West Queen West corridor of Toronto.  But for me this includes streets like King West, Queen West, College and Dundas West, anywhere West of Spadina.  But who can keep up with all the amazing, delicious new offerings that seem to pop up overnight like mushrooms after a spring rain?




 

Dundas West is more than just a lineup of Asian options.  From Pie Commissions, to microbreweries, Pubs, and Pizza places, all the way to Bagels just the way you like them, loaded, unloaded, shaken or stirred.  College presents its own dilemma.  It’s bad enough that the street is has its share of incredible Italian, Middle Eastern and Asian food, but if you check down some of the side streats like Clinton you will discover hidden treasures like Bitondo’s, San Fracesco’s or a coffee spot you didn’t know existed.

Here are a few option along Queen Street West that BlogTO is suggesting.
