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.
I was meaning to try this place for quite a long time, and finally got to try it. It's a very small cozy restaurant with approximately 6-8 tables only plus some bar seats. I've read some other reviews saying that the skewers took very long, however, my skewers came out super fast. The food selection is a bit limited, however I like that they have "half" orders, which allows you to try a variety of everything. Service was great too. I would definitely come back when I get the chance. We had 8 drinks amongst two, which is why it came to 82 per person.
Got skewers and some unagi sushi. The unagi is one the better ones in the city, big and juicy! The skewers were well done with plenty of flavour, (bit scallops btw) . But their takowasabi was great, gives you that wasabi nose hit! Highly recommend trying, but the only downside is how expensive it is! Loved their secret door to the washroom, the look on my face when he pointed to a wall
Quite small in seating but very good food, takes a long time to come so i would definitely recommend to order a lot at the start. Drinks were fine, nothing special, the beef as well as pork belly was the highlight, the negi (scallion) was not worth it at all. But overall, very good experience! Definitely recommend!
