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

Jul 8 2020, 9:51 am

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:

A Matty Matheson-pick, this Tibetan restaurant is cozy. Tucked away on Close Avenue, if you didn’t know it was there, you might stroll right by. While dining in still isn’t an option, you can drop by to grab some mouthwatering momos for takeout until 11 pm, today and every day.

Address: 216 Close Avenue

Miss celebrating National Fried Chicken Day on Monday? No fear, fierce sammies are still here. Naked, Mild, Medium, Hot, Extra Hot, or Devil’s Breath are your choices for spice level on this ridiculous(ly good) sammy, and we must warn you… the heat here is not for the faint of heart. Instead of being tossed in mere spices, the chicken is coated in spicy oil, which means the intensity of the flavour builds each time you take a bite. So brace yourself, remember to breathe, and get ready to hop on this wild ride — it’s well worth it.

Soft and crispy tacos, burritos, tostadas, quesadillas, papusas, and tamales line the menu at this Bloor West joint — all of which sound like ideal candidates for meals to beat the heat with. The mouthwatering options, ranging from vegetarian to shrimp to lengua (beef tongue), are available for takeout.

It’s not ice cream, it’s gelato. Made with local dairy and produce, the flavours that come out of this little shop are wild. A “spicy chocolate,” “cheeseboard,” “corn-on-the-cob” type of wild. Open for takeaway, you can drop by the Dundas West storefront and grab yourself a sweet treat to go.

Address: 1418 Dundas Street West
