Eddie Huang just gave Toronto’s food scene one huge compliment.
On a just posted episode of Hot Ones from First We Feast, when asked by host Sean Evans for the “best food city in America? Period,” Huang replies “I’m going to give you a curve ball. I’m going to say the best food city in North America is probably Toronto.”
“I think Toronto and LA are neck and neck. I like Toronto because you get a lot of the things you would get in LA but you get Caribbean food as well,” before going on to extoll LA’s Mexican and Japanese food scene.
Huang is an American chef and restaurateur behind BaoHaus in New York City, author of Fresh Off The Boat, and Viceland food personality.
While we totally agree with Huang’s high praise of Toronto’s food scene, we suspect it might make our neighbours to the south a little salty.
