Konjiki Ramen

If you’re craving a hearty bowl of ramen, stop into this popular ramen shop by Michelin Star-accoladed Chef Atsushi Yamamoto.

Konjiki started out as a small 8-seat ramen shop in Tokyo, and Toronto was actually their very first international destination!

They make their noodles fresh using a Japanese-imported machine, and their soup base is made with a blend of clam, chicken, and pork.

I love that they add a Canadian twist to their dishes using locally-sourced ingredients like truffle and porcini mushrooms.

From their Smokey Black Tonkotsu Ramen to their Spicy Miso Ramen, they’ve got a variety of ramen options to choose from.

You can even order a Mini Pork Belly Don or Mini Chashu Don as a side!

They also share their Yorkdale location with Saryo Cafe, a famous Tokyo dessert shop, and you’ll find a delish selection of Japanese drinks and treats.

The Cheesecake Factory

When Cheesecake opened up at Yorkdale several years ago, people were literally waiting hours in line just to get inside.

It’s still very busy, but definitely not as bad as when they first opened!

They’ve got a gargantuan menu featuring over 250 internationally-inspired dishes, with options like their Korean Fried Cauliflower, Cheeseburger Spring Rolls, and Avocado Eggrolls.

Their food is actually quite good, especially for a chain restaurant.

You’ll also find over 40 amazing cheesecakes and desserts to choose from, including their Fresh Strawberry Cheesecake, Dulce de Leche Caramel Cheesecake, and Mango Key Lime Cheesecake.

If you’re just looking to grab a cheesecake to go, you can just walk over to their little cheesecake counter in the restaurant!

Aburi oshi sushi from Aburi Tora sushi restaurant at Yorkdale Shopping Centre in North York, Ontario

Aburi TORA

Aburi TORA is a sister restaurant to the wildly popular sushi restaurants Miku and Minami, which are both originally based out of Vancouver.

They’re all about their aburi oshi sushi (AKA torched and pressed sushi), and they have a huge selection to choose from.

I absolutely love their Aburi Ebi Oshi (shrimp) and Aburi Saba Oshi (mackerel), and Adam especially loves the Aburi Crab Sushi.

They’ve got several different aburi oshi trios, which are perfect for if you’re looking to try a variety of different torch pressed sushi.

You place your order on an iPad, then it comes straight to you on a conveyer belt!

You also have to take an elevator up to the restaurant, so it feels super ~fancy~.

This fine-dining Chinese restaurant serves up a wide variety of elegant seafood dishes and dim sum.

From their Sea Urchin Siu Mai, to their King Crab Dumplings, to their Crispy Shrimp Croquette with Foie Gras, they’ve got plenty of unique seafood-focused dim sum dishes.

Order their Prosperous Dim Sum Platter to sample a selection of multiple dim sum dishes!

If you’re enjoying dim sum for brunch, you can pair your meal with signature cocktails or mocktails like their Jasmine Pear Bellini or Dragon Mojito.

They’ve also got signature Chinese teas, some of which they ferment themselves in-house.
