Toronto is the most populous city in Canada and the capital city of the Canadian province of Ontario. With a recorded population of 2,794,356 in 2021, it is the fourth-most populous city in North America. The city is the anchor of the Golden Horseshoe, an urban agglomeration of 9,765,188 people (as of 2021) surrounding the western end of Lake Ontario, while the Greater Toronto Area proper had a 2021 population of 6,712,341. Toronto is an international centre of business, finance, arts, sports and culture, and is recognized as one of the most multicultural and cosmopolitan cities in the world.Indigenous peoples have travelled through and inhabited the Toronto area, located on a broad sloping plateau interspersed with rivers, deep ravines, and urban forest, for more than 10,000 years. After the broadly disputed Toronto Purchase, when the Mississauga surrendered the area to the British Crown, the British established the town of York in 1793 and later designated it as the capital of Upper Canada.
They surpass my expectations, especially in terms of food quality. There is a big selection for both food and drink. We tried many small dishes (quick bites, appetizers, and dessert), and they are pretty tasty, well worth the price. It's often busy but the staff is quick and professional. The atmosphere is young and lively, suitable for friend gathering.
Incredible set menu ($39 per person) consisting of miso soup, seaweed & tofu salad, salmon tataki, Tokyo fries, JFC Karaage, oyster kakimayo, kinoko cheese bibimbap, and matcha ice cream.
Delicious izakaya! Service is friendly and fast and all the food was great! I especially liked the takoyaki, karaage, and agedashi tofu! If you've been to the church location, this one feels more spacious and less rowdy. They also do take reservations which is nice! Convenient and great option for Japanese food along the waterfront.
