The Best Takeout in Toronto
Whether you’re out of groceries or just need a night off from the kitchen, the Six is quick to satiate hungry tummies. While it won’t be long before patio season is in full swing, until then make use of our round-up of top Toronto takeout spots. We promise your stomach will thank us.
In a city where Thai food is about as common as street meat, it takes something special to stand out from the crowd. Sukho Thai elevates the Thai experience while maintaining its roots as a family-run restaurant. Delivery items that have earned this hidden gem five-star status on Yelp include mango salad, deep fried tofu, and—of course—Pad Thai. Now with three locations to serve you (Parliament, Wellington, and Dundas), there’s nothing coming between you and a big, full buddha belly.
Yummy Yummy Dumplings
While the name may say it all, you should always ask a second opinion. It seems Torontonians agree that Yummy Yummy Dumplings is the go-to source for delivery of all things wrapped and pan-fried. Popular flavours include chicken, cabbage, and mushroom as well as pork and dill. For the vegetarians, the chef gets fresh, with menu items like “pork” and Chive (made from stewed tofu and curd) and “beef” and celery (made from cabbage and mushrooms). With a delivery charge of only $3 on orders more than $25, keep this place’s menu right on the fridge.
Just because you’re going the takeout route doesn’t mean you have to ditch your diet. The Goods, located on Dundas Street West, has a mission to deliver healthy meals made from scratch. Order from their selection of juices, salads, and snacks, including menu items like their Green Gold Salad (herb dressing, brown rice, and veggies with seeds) or Chai Guy Breakfast Cereal (oats and apple with chai maple sauce). The Goods is committed to offering vegan and gluten-free options that fit any dietary restriction and budget. Find out what’s cooking daily on their website here.
You love your sushi, but you know not every place that offers sushi can do takeout right. Thankfully, Sushi Marche serves up everything you’d expect from a local sushi restaurant, including fresh maki, sashimi, nori, and more. What’s more, this Leslieville staple knows how to pack everything just right—separating cold from hot items as well as dips and sauces from dry items, so you can enjoy the whole experience at home. Just give them a call, place your order, and you’re ready to roll
Descendant Detroit Style Pizza
Descendant Pizza has earned a reputation for itself as the go-to place if you’re craving carbs. The Leslieville pizza house famous for its deep-dish Detroit-style pizza serves up piping hot pies in a variety of styles. The Jafna Pizza, for example, offers pizza with a Calabrian flair. Kothu roti is served with mango chutney, cilantro cream, green onion, and chilis, with a little bit of cilantro to ease the spice. If you’re in the mood for something more traditional, double your fun with the Double Pepperoni Pizza (sauce, cheese, Dolce Lucana Pepperoni under the cheese, Venetian Meats Crispy Pepperoni on top, served with oregano and basil). While they don’t offer delivery just yet, with four-and-a-half stars on Yelp, this pizza is worth the trip to Queen and Jones for takeout.
