Take-Out and Delivery Food Options in Mid-Town Toronto
The option to dine in in restaurants may be off limit at the moment due to COVID-19 measures, but it doesn’t mean that you should deprive yourself of certain food cravings or delicious ethnic foods! If you live in or near mid-town in Toronto, you likely have come across the construction zones and road diversions due to the Eglinton Crosstown West Extension / Eglinton Light Rail Transit (LRT) project.
Although getting to some of the businesses, stores, and eating establishments in these areas might be a bit of a challenge, a lot of the restaurants are still open for take-out and delivery. We have gathered some of the best food options in the area, including ethnic cuisines.
Tabule offers authentic Middle Eastern cuisine with options ranging from delicious appetizers such as tabbouleh, arnabeet (cauliflower drizzled with tahini), and fried eggplant, to mains that include grilled meats and seafood with rice, vermicelli, and vegetables.
With 4 different locations throughout Toronto, the location in Midtown (near Yonge & Eglinton) is the original and one of the most popular ones. They offer take-out and delivery options directly through their website platform.
Craving some Indian food? Khau Gully’s high rating on review sites such as Yelp is a testament that this restaurant serves delicious and high-quality Indian food. The menu is quite large, with offerings that include soups (such as Mulligatawny, the classic Indian soup made with lentils, spices, and herbs), classic Indian dishes (different variations of paneer, tikka, and tandoori dishes for meat eaters, pescetarians, and vegetarians), and different kinds of biryani rice and Indian breads (including naan, roti, paratha, and kulcha).
If you’re looking for something healthy, hearty, and filling, look no further than Fresh Restaurant. It has a number of different locations throughout Toronto, and the menu at the Midtown location is the same as the menu in other locations (except for the daily specials such as soup). Everything on the menu at Fresh is guaranteed to animate your taste buds while giving you a boost of daily vegetables intake. You can select from a plethora of different salads, bowls (with brown rice or soba noodles), tacos, burgers, and freshly made juices and smoothies. There are also brunch options which are all plant-based, including tofu scramble and delicious pancakes.
Sushi restaurants and take-out places are everywhere these days, but Shinobu Sushi (located slightly north of Yonge & Lawrence) offers fresh sushi, sashimi, and other traditional Japanese fares at affordable price. The option to get take-out or delivery makes it convenient to satisfy your sushi craving without leaving the comfort of your home.
Sometimes all you need is a good burger after a workout session, to satisfy that burger craving at night, or you just want something familiar and satisfying. Burger Shack at Eglinton St. West provides take-out option while the dine-in area is closed.
If you’re looking for more options for take-out and delivery (there are a LOT more options available!), use food delivery apps such as Uber Eats, Door Dash, and Foodora to explore what else is available in your area.
