Travel Guide: Toronto, Canada

 ONE OF THE MOST MULTICULTURAL CITIES IN THE WORLD AND PROUD OF IT. TORONTO EMBRACES THE FACT THAT 49% OF ITS RESIDENTS WERE BORN OUTSIDE OF CANADA. THE FOOD, ARCHITECTURE, THE DISTILLERY DISTRICT -THE MORE I SAW, THE MORE I LOVED. IT’S PERFECT FOR A 3-DAY WEEKEND!

Toronto, Canada

WHERE TO EAT:

  • Cibo Wine Bar

  • Cafe Boulud: classy upscale

  • El Catrin: Mexican hip tapas 

  • Oretta: colorful spot, good food

WHERE TO GO OUT: 

  • ROM & Art Gallery of Toronto

  • CN Tower: sky high views of Toronto

  • Distillery District: historic artsy area, full of restaurants & bars

  • Get Well: chill arcade bar, good pizza

  • The Rooftop: panoramic views, upscale bar

I went to Toronto “The 6” in March 2016, and it is cold that time of the year, but since we were visiting from Miami, it was an amazing environment change. First thing we did was EAT, we were starving so we decided to have lunch at Cafe Boulud to start our day. Daniel Boulud is a visionary chef, I’ve always admired his food and restaurant designs. I loved the stylish vintage atmosphere of the restaurant. As you would expect at a place like Cafe Boulud, the service was great, as was the food - although nothing has topped New York's michelin star location.
