Top Ten Cheap Restaurants in Ontario

Destination(s): Toronto

The best places to look for cheap and filling food are those favored by the locals, and Ontario makes no exception. In fact, these places have become so popular because of the great food they serve in generous portions and at affordable prices, that they became culinary landmarks for tourists and expats as well, so make sure you go hungry and appreciate some healthy, authentic meals. Surprising or not, two of the most popular affordable eateries are the Indian Babur Restaurant and the Chinese Bright Pearl Seafood, both of which serve excellent traditional food for the hungry patrons. There are also some laid back hangouts for the young local crowds, like C'est What and Luxe Bistro, where they actually serve some of the biggest and the most juicy steaks in the area. Whatever you do, just make sure you have dessert at PARIS CR╩PES BISTRO, those sweet treats are really something! read more about Top Ten Cheap Restaurants in Ontario

Babur Restaurant

Babur Restaurant

Babur, a restaurant that has met with much praise from Toronto's savvy food critics, is renowned for its excellent (and extensive list of) tandoori dishes. Taking its name from a late fifteenth century Emperor and founder of the Mughal Dynasty, Babur prides itself on its use of traditional preparation methods and pure ingredients (many of its signature, Northern Indian dishes are prepared in a tandoor oven). 
Well-known for its fabulous wait staff and high quality food, Babur offers its guests formal service at casual prices. Even better, its central location makes it an easy stop for hungry visitors exploring Toronto's Downtown, Chinatown and Queen West neighbourhoods. Entrees (including plenty of vegetarian options) begin at $8.95 — come hungry, eat well.

Have you ever had authentic Chinese food? Not the all-you-can-eat-buffet, order-in kind. Everything you need to experience is at Bright Pearl. For those who don't know, Dim Sum is an extensive (and I mean huge - 150 items to be exact) selection of Chinese delights from delicious dumplings to scrumptious short ribs. This restaurant has won both Best of Toronto Central Chinatown and Toronto Public Health's Dining Guide List awards. You cannot miss the building with its distinctive imperial lion statues in the front.

  • Toronto, M5E 1B5

If you love beer and live music, this is the place to go. 28 locally brewed beers are on tap here to go along with the great menu, including the best lamb burgers in the city. It is within walking distance from the CN Tower, yet at the same time removed from the modern hustle and bustle of downtown in a century-old building (a common trait of the establishments at King and Yonge). There is also brunch served on Saturdays if you are looking for a quieter dining experience.
