Feelings come from all different places.
Food can fulfill your feeling of hunger…it could heal the feeling of sadness…it could even provide feelings of bliss.
Food to me is all of those combined. When I correlate 'my feelings' with food, I associate it with different moments…different memories. When I seek comfort, good food always entertains me.
So when I travel to different cities and I spot that one 'to-die-for' Chinese dumplings, or that one Thai dish that I never knew existed, its a pretty great feeling. Really. I'm sure most of you guys can relate, or you have your list of favorite foods.
Thanks to Tara from Seven Spoons-a blogger that I truly admire~ Her blog is filled with amazing writing, beautiful photos, and heartfelt recipes. Hailing from Toronto, I picked her brain for some of her favorite spots. Wasn't able to go down the list completely, but the few that I did try *loved* so thank you Tara!
I was in Toronto for a short 6 days for the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF). I had a nice list of all these films I wanted to check out, but how did this turn out? Well, ended up planning out my meals instead. So this trip to Toronto can be summed up to just having a wide range of feelings. Food was unexpectedly great! Who would have known that Jamaican food would be pretty kick-ass here? And I had the best Korean tacos in the heart of Korea Town here. It definitely beats Los Angeles Korean tacos (might upset some readers here), and it sure beats the Korean style tacos in New York. Even the late night hot dog stands with the million condiments station hit the spot (and this is coming from a Chicago girl). I guess hot dog carts are actually a 'thing' around Toronto.
So Toronto is where it's at for some good eats. Not just great food but you'll definitely find a few dishes that will sorta blow your mind away. Toronto had a good feeling. Just go and try for yourself, and be open to having your feelings challenged :)
