​My Favorite Restaurants in North York

Food and sitting down for a meal, is something the brings us all together: we bond, laugh and discuss over food. Knowing that, it’s really important to find the place with the best food to make sure time spent with your friends and family is memorable and truly enjoyable. Here’s some North York restaurants that, if they aren’t already your favourite, will be after you visit. 

The Monkey Bar & Grill
This restaurant offers a really unique mix of different cuisines, infused to create a kind of new genre of food. You will find  Asian, Italian, French and Canadian flavours mixed together to create a meal you’ll never forget. One of the most recommended dishes here would be the panko-crusted veal schnitzel, complete with vegetables and sweet potatoes. Make sure you save room for dessert, though, as they boast many house-made, delicious sweets. You will appreciate the large portions and reasonable prices you’ll find at 3353 Yonge Street, so The Monkey Bar & Grill is a place you don’t want to miss.

Bier Markt
Located at 7 O’Neill Rd, this uniquely named place lives up to its name with the variety of beer it offers to its customers. Here you will find a selection of over 150 beers from over 30 countries around the world, so your options are virtually endless. Can’t make up your mind? That’s totally fine – they recently introduced a concept called 50/50 where you can mix two beers – of your choice – together. You might create the next big thing with this, so get crazy and mix away. If you’re also feeling hungry, they offer a large variety of delicious appetizers and great pub food. During the summer, the patio they have here is a great way to spend your Friday nights.

Congee Queen
This restaurant, found at 895 Lawrence Avenue East, offers authentic and quality Cantonese food for incredibly reasonable prices. While you’re here, you should definitely try the minced beef rice noodle roll and the beef brisket low mein. If you prefer your food a little more on the spicy side, give soft-shell crab fried rice or the spicy squid. This restaurant is a great family atmosphere so you can enjoy a night out with everyone, while enjoying some really great food.

The Veggie Thali
This restaurant offers a mixture of healthy Indian food, and gives you a place to just be quiet and enjoy a meal, or spend quality time with those people important to you. This small, quaint space is located at 1410 Victoria Park Avenue. Every dish you order – no matter what it is – delivers an incredible blend of flavours and rich herbs and spices, so you won’t be disappointed with whatever it is you order. If your diet is plant-based, this restaurant offers both vegetarian and vegan options so you can experience authentic Indian dishes while still keeping true with your dietary choices. Regular customers recommend pa bhaji, which is a mixture of vegetables served with a side of Indian bread, or roti.
