Best restaurants in Vaughan

Banh Mi Nguyen Huong in Toronto

Banh Mi Nguyen Huong

Nguyen Huong is your spot to get authentic banh mi in Toronto.

If you don’t already know what banh mi is, it’s basically a Vietnamese sub sandwich.

It’s typically filled with meat, pickled veggies, pâté, and a butter/mayo spread, and it’s served on a French baguette.

I’ve been coming to Nguyen Huong for as long as I can remember, and my grandma even used to make rice cakes for their store!

Be sure to also grab a cup of che ba mau (a Vietnamese dessert) if you’ve got a sweet tooth.

If you’ve heard of the other popular Toronto chain, Banh Mi Boys, you’ll be excited to hear that it’s owned by the sons of Nguyen Huong’s owners.

LOCATION: 3255 Rutherford Rd, Vaughan, ON

The Burger's Priest Toronto

The Burger’s Priest

Skip McDonald’s and pay a visit to Burger’s Priest instead for some delish and juicy burgers.

They make their patties fresh every morning using grass-fed Canadian ground beef, and they’re absolutely amazing.

If you’re craving hot dogs instead, their hot dogs are all-beef and Kosher-friendly!

You can find their Vaughan location at Highway 7 & Weston, and they’ve got tons of locations across Ontario.

If you’re looking for healthy, plant-based eats, you’ll find them at Hello123.

They’re actually a sister restaurant to Kupfert & Kim, another plant-based Toronto chain!

Chicken shawarma plate from Anoush Middle Eastern Cuisine in TorontoChicken shawarma plate from Anoush Middle Eastern Cuisine in Toronto

Anoush Middle Eastern Cuisine

Ain’t nothin’ more satisfying than a delicious plate of shawarma.

Anoush serves up some of the best shawarma in the city, and their Chicken Shawarma Plate is my absolute fave.

They’ve even got homemade baklava available for dessert if you’re craving a sweet treat!

They have multiple locations across the GTA, and their North York location is located south of Dufferin & Finch.

LOCATION: 90 Edgeley Blvd #5, Concord, ON

Duff’s Famous Wings

Duff’s is *gasp* famous for their wings, and they’ve been serving Toronto their delicious wings since the 90’s.

They use fresh roaster-sized wings that are delivered daily to each location, and they’ve been using the same traditional buffalo sauce recipe since the beginning.

Paramount Fine Foods, Toronto

Paramount Middle Eastern Kitchen

Paramount is a popular Toronto chain known for their amazing Lebanese and Middle Eastern dishes.

From shawarma to manakeesh, they have an endless menu of Middle Eastern faves.

If you haven’t heard of manakeesh, it’s basically a Middle Eastern pizza, and it’s amaze.

Everything on their menu is also halal-friendly!

You can find their Vaughan location at Highway 7 & Weston, and they’ve got tons of locations across the GTA.

Katsuya Restaurant


Got a craving for some crispy Japanese tonkatsu?

If you don’t know what katsu is, it’s basically breaded and deep fried meat, and tonkatsu is deep fried pork cutlet.

Katsuya has all the katsu you could ever need, and you can choose from their different signature sauces.

My fave is the Curry Katsu, but any katsu will satisfy your tastebuds.

Scaddabush Italian Kitchen & Bar

Scaddabush is one of my fave Italian restaurant chains in Toronto, and they’ve got a location in Vaughan.

I remember randomly deciding to stumble into their first Yonge & Gerrard location for dinner after class at Ryerson one day, and how happy my friends and I were to discover such a great spot.

Their charity bread and straight up meatball are amazing!

LOCATION: 20 Colossus Dr, Vaughan, ON

The Captain's Boil Restaurant, Toronto

The Captain’s Boil

I love me some seafood boil, and The Captain’s Boil is my fave spot to grab it in the city.

They infuse Cajun and Asian flavours for their sauces, and their Captain’s Boil sauce is *chef’s kiss*.

How it works is that you choose your seafood, flavour, spiciness, and add-ons, then eat it straight out of the bag!

They have quite a few locations across the GTA, including their Vaughan one by Jane & Rutherford.

LOCATION: 3255 Rutherford Rd, Concord, ON
