2017 has been a rollercoaster year for colourful food trends in Toronto.

Rainbows, and unicorns might have started the year off with a welcome dose of whimsy, but things have since taken a darker turn and now you’ll find menus across the city dominated by all-black, GOTH menu items.

With Halloween on the horizon, here’s some of the darkest delicacies available in Toronto.
