5 Toronto restaurants to support on this week's Takeout Day

Jul 22 2020, 5:13 pm

While the restaurant industry works to adapt to the ever-changing circumstances of these times, every Wednesday has been named “Takeout Day.”

Just because we can’t visit our favourite restaurants in a regular fashion right now doesn’t mean we can’t continue to support them.

If you have a hankering for a no-cook meal and you’d like to show some love to a local eatery, consider placing an order through one of our picks for this week’s Takeout Day:

Every Wednesday to Sunday from 11 am to 3 pm, this spot’s serving up in a “Burger and Bottle Shop” format. And on the menu, reliably, are wicked breakfast sammies, burgers, and hotdogs. Scoop one up, and grab a bottle of nice vino while you’re at it.

Address: 1438 Dundas Street West

This heavy-hitter champions local provisions, with a whole webpage dedicated to who supplies their ingredients. On top of the food being made up of regional products, the menu here is entirely indulgent. Grab some goods to go to pair with a couple mid-week beers.

Address: 96 Tecumseth
Phone: 647-352-6000

A given, considering it’s National Hot Dog Day! You could go for a classic if that’s what you’re hankerin’ for, or you could throw caution to the wind and opt for a dawg topped with chili, one smothered in chicken and buffalo wing sauce, a bacon-wrapped wiener, or a proper corn dog. Lucky for veg-heads, this spot’s got veggie dogs and Beyond Meat sausage on the menu, too.

Address: 326 College Street; 940 Bloor Street West; 453 Queen Street West; 1507 Avenue Road


King’s Noodle Restaurant

This Chinatown spot is golden. Peking duck in all its forms is available on the menu, alongside pretty much every soup combination your carbiest dreams could ever summon. Luckily, this spot is offering takeaway while the dining area is closed, so you can soak up a couple at-home beers with all the noodles you need.

Address: 296 Spadina Avenue
Phone: 416-598-1817

You’ve heard of doughnuts, and you’ve heard of mochi, but have you heard of mochi doughnuts? Those are the main attraction at this east-end bakery, where you can stock up on treats that are the perfect combination of soft and squishy, and come in a plethora of mouthwatering flavours.

Address: 2066 Queen Street East
Phone: 416-699-5050
