Chinese crispy burger from Bingz restaurant at First Markham Place in Markham, Ontario


Have you ever had Chinese fast food before?

Bingz is a fast casual restaurant chain based out of Beijing, and they serve up amazing Chinese crispy burgers.

The crispy burgers are what you should be coming for, but they also have some noodle and wonton dishes, as well as some traditional Chinese drinks (try their Plum Cold Brew)!

They have over 140 locations across China, and you can find them inside Yorkdale Mall.

It’s actually a takeout shop and not a sit-down restaurant, but you can enjoy your Chinese fast food in the food court seating area.

Bingz opened up their first-ever Canadian restaurant at First Markham Place several years ago, and now they have several locations around the GTA, including at Fairview Mall!

BBQ Chicken from Roywoods Toronto


Roywoods has some of the best jerk chicken in Toronto, though I’m definitely a big fan of their BBQ Chicken.

I usually get their plates instead of their sandwiches, ’cause they’re a lot less messy to eat.

All of their chicken is halal as well, which is great for my friends who eat halal!

You can find Roywoods in the Yorkdale food court.

You can also find them at Union Station and CityPlace in Toronto, as well as at Square One in Mississauga!

Loaded Pierogi in Toronto

Loaded Pierogi

If you haven’t had pierogis before, they’re amazing European dumplings that are typically stuffed with potatoes and boiled.

Loaded Pierogi’s pierogis are literally heaven on earth, and you can choose from different toppings like BBQ Brisket and Butter Chicken.

You can also choose between boiled or fried pierogis, and I love doing half and half.

They’ve actually got locations all across the GTA (including at Union Station and on Queen West), and you can find their shop in the Yorkdale food court!

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

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.

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