Fast Food in Toronto: The Ultimate List. Fast food is one of those genres of food that gets a bad rap. Often depicted as the greasy, low-class cousin of sit-down eateries, modern fast food has come a long way. Whether fast food is your guilty pleasure or you’re searching for the ultimate list of the quickest food in the Toronto area, this is the list for you.
The Burger’s Priest
Burger’s priest is not your typical burger joint. The founder is a dude who grew up in California and just loved a good burger. He made his way to Toronto to become a priest. Although burger maestro is quite a bit different than becoming a priest, it was his calling. Now he is looking for burger redemption from fancy burger places that try too hard. The only thing that matters at Burger Priest is top-notch burgers from top-notch ingredients.
Paramount Fine Foods
It’s no accident that their name includes the word paramount. This restaurant strives to be the paramount in bringing Lebanese food to Toronto. With a focus on crafting Middle Eastern food with the freshest ingredients, this is not your typical fast-food option. Paramount aims to provide a fast-food dining experience, unlike any other.
If you head on over to the flock website, you’ll be greeted with a flashy webpage for a serious chicken restaurant. They specialize in rotisserie chicken and have partnered with Deboer’s to supply sustainable, naturally raised halal-certified yard bird. With interesting menu options like barbary flock and super healthy side items, fast food doesn’t have to be just a guilty pleasure anymore. Head on over to flock to, in the words of their website, “meet the flockers.”
The Basil Box
Bringing quick meals to Toronto that seem like they are fresh from the streets of southeast Asia, that’s the goal of this cultural meal spot. Despite the name, they actually specialize in bowls, not boxes. They bring the freshest Vietnamese and Thailand inspired ingredients they can find so you can be your own chef. You can build your bowl to suit your own individual tastes so that every meal you experience can be something new.
This innovative take on the pizza scene will change the way you think about the popular pie. They claim they sit somewhere between fast food and fine dining, but when you’re custom made pizza is being made in 90 seconds, that seems pretty darn quick to me. This fresh take on pizza just goes to show; there’s no wrong way to make a pizza.
