14 Delicious Junk Foods You Need To Eat In Toronto

Gogobot users tell us where to eat when up north.

1. Bison, Elk, and Kangaroo Sausages from WVRST.

Wvrst is famous for exactly that — bratwurst. They have every flavor imaginable, including kangaroo, wild boar and bison. The fries are cooked in duck fat for a flavorful baseball stadium throwback. Grab some at 609 King Street or 65 Front Street.

2. The "Go Chuck Yourself" Burger from Holy Chuck.

Looking for a burger that can truly challenge you? The "Go Chuck Yourself" has six patties, six pieces of cheese, three portions of bacon, and grilled cheese sandwiches instead of buns. Need I say more? Urgh, fine, there's also poutine. Eat away at 1450 Yonge St or 586 Yonge St.

3. Gelato and Chocolate from SOMA Chocolate

Love gelato? Love chocolate? Have both at SOMA. The chocolatemakers have a selection of delicious treats including gelato with a liquid chocolate shot and gianduja (aka chocolate-hazelnut) caramel laced with Pop Rocks. Get your sugar on at 32 Tank House Lane or at 443 King Street West.

4. Poutine from SMOKE’s Poutinerie

Bacon Poutine, Triple Pork Poutine, Philly Cheesesteak Poutine, AND MORE. Find one of their multiple Toronto locations here.

5. Red Diamonds and Pearls Cheesecake from Carole's Cheesecake

The powerful combo of red velvet cake and cheesecake awaits under "diamonds" of raspberry puree and "pearls" of frosting. If you're more of a traditionalist, the classic cheesecake is great too. Pick up a slice at 114 Cumberland Ave. or 2470 Yonge St.

6. Wings from Duff’s Famous Wings

If you have a taste for self-destruction, try the "Death" and "Armageddon" sauces and get your name on the Wall of Pain. Chow down at 1604 Bayview Avenue or 558 College Street West.

7. Super Royal Baked Alaska from Dutch Dreams

If you're looking for something relatively modest, grab a candy-covered cone and load it up with a few scoops of ice cream. But if you want to go all in? The Super Royal Baked Alaska is a huge pile of cake, ice cream, toasted meringue, almonds and fruit. Holy. Crap. Worship it at 36 Vaughan Road.

8. Burgers and a "Vatican on Ice" from Burger Priest

All the burgers at Burger Priest are on point, but it's the off-the-menu "Vatican on Ice" sandwich that is out of this world. Two grilled cheese sandwiches with ice cream in the middle: The work of a genius, or the work of the devil? Guess you'll have to try it to decide. Grab one for yourself at one of their multiple Toronto locations.

9. Pancakes from Saving Grace

Like coconut pancakes, waffles turned into pancakes, and even pancaked with bacon inside! Grab a stack at 907 Dundas St W.

10. Butter Tarts from Leah's

Butter tarts are the reason we should all be moving to Canada. A tart filled with sugar, butter, maple syrup and eggs, it's basically a maple-drenched gift from the heavens. You can grab them in many places in Toronto, but Leah's version is especially delicious. Pick some up at 621 St. Clair Avenue West.

11. Ice Cream Sandwiches from Bakerbots Baking

Buttery cookies and rich ice cream come together for the perfect hand-held dessert at Bakerbots. Grab your own (or three) at 205 Delaware Ave.

12. Deep-Fried Hot Dogs from Gushi

Hot dogs are good. Tempura-battered hot dogs on a stick are even better. Get your own at 707 Dundas St West.

13. Onion Rings from Fresh

Who would've thunk that onion rings covered in quinoa could be so delicious? Lucky for us, Fresh did. The vegetarian restaurant's rings are a delicious way to feel virtuous about eating junk food. Grab an order at one of their many Toronto locations.

14. BeaverTails from BeaverTails Pastry

Shaped like a (you guessed it) beaver tail, these pastries are overloaded in the best way. The whole wheat dough is topped with butter and whatever other sweets you want and served piping hot. The fact that we don't have these in the U.S. is criminal. Grab one on the Toronto pier at 145 Queen’s Quay West.
