A friend and I spent the Labor Day weekend in Toronto, Canada and had such an amazing time. In the short time that we were there, we were able to cover many of the sightseeing hot spots: Kensington Market, Eaton Centre, St. Lawrence Market, CN Tower, High Park, Casa Loma (Castle on the Hill) which was absolutely gorgeous, Royal Ontario Museum, as well as famous neighborhoods and streets. Favorites include Bloor Street West, Queen Street, Chinatown, Korea Town, and more…
Toronto, Day 1:
In the evening, we headed to the Distillery District but did not find it to be a very happening place, so we continued on our way and had dinner at an Indian restaurant called Bombay Palace. It was a nice, quiet spot with wonderful mango lassi and tandoori chicken/prawn/sausage/naan bread special that came on a sizzling plate.
Toronto, Day 2:
After Casa Loma, we headed to Honest Ed’s, a huge discount store. We were quite hungry so our next destination was Baton Rouge, where we ordered the baby back pork ribs which were delicious! They were cooked perfectly and slightly crispy. I also enjoyed the two sides: French fries and rice pilaf.
When we were done eating, we made our way to one of the famous streets (and my favorite street) of Toronto: Bloor Street West. We walked along Bloor St West from the HR department store with hot pink flags, and went past the high end shops, the Royal Ontario Museum, the Bata Shoe Museum, University of Toronto, cute little shops and eateries (including Greg’s Ice cream where I had the Coffee Toffee flavor which was truly delectable and a perfect balance of rich coffee and sweet toffee), Korea Town and more!
Toronto, Day 3
Today was the last day so I spent the morning at the Royal Ontario Museum which is quite cool with all different types of exhibits, ranging from fashion to Asian, to geology, to mammals and dinosaurs, from Neoclassical to Renaissance, from Greek to Roman and so much more.
I really enjoyed my time in Toronto, Canada and would definitely return!
