Taste of the Danforth was as tasty as I remember it!

Saturday, August 8, 2009


It's been a few years since we've gone to Taste of the Danforth. In fact, it was the third "date" Mark and I went on back in 2006 (it was supposed to be the second, as our first one went so well that we scheduled Danforth for our second right away, but then Mark called me even before Danforth to see if I wanted to go to a movie and of course I said yes and the rest was, as they say, history).

My final thought on Taste of the Danforth this year: It was just as delicious as I remember it! Everything was amazing - there really wasn't one bad thing to say about any of the food we ate.

I'll keep it short - who needs words when you have foodtography?! (Don't miss the slideshow with more images.) Here's a quick rundown of what we ate [restaurant names inserted where I wasn't too drunk with joy to remember where we got the items from]:


- Brazilian barbecue steak and onion sandwich [The Red Violin]
- Paella with shrimp, chicken, green beans and mussels [Embrujo Flamenco]
- Lamb rosemary pie [Ouzeri Restaurant]
- Spinach pie
- Baklava
- A traditional Greek custard cream pastry (sort of looked like a Greek version of a canoli)
- A chewy milk chocolate cookie [Cookie Connection]
- Octopus balls [Mariko]
- Mango shake

It's very possible we'll go back tomorrow because we had no room for our favourite dish: ECUADORIAN PULLED PORK WITH A POTATO CAKE!

I can't believe I have never been to Taste of the Danforth. The food looks down right drool-enticing. Is it as busy as everyone says?

Hey Scott! We'll totally have to get you guys down for TOTD next year!

It is certainly busy, for sure, but lots of fun :) There are SO many places along the Danforth that participate in it - the hard part is deciding which places to go to since you only have so much space in your stomach! Mark and I almost need to eat lunch and dinner there the Sat and Sun just to be able to try everything! We didn't have enough room for some of our fave food :(

But that's ok, we'll go next year and make sure we get what we missed this year!

Oh and I'm going to check out your new post on the Bruce trail :)
