Best restaurants in Downtown Markham


Lucullus Bakers & Roasters

Lucullus is a Hong Kong-style bakery serving up all your fave Hong Kong bites and drinks.

They bake their pastries and cakes fresh daily, as well as their freshly-made steamed rice boxes and dim sum.

You can enjoy authentic Hong Kong-style milk tea (also known as lai cha in Cantonese!)

They have 3 locations in the GTA: one in Downtown Markham, plus two others in Markham and Richmond Hill.

They’ve actually been around since the early 90’s, though I didn’t discover them myself until they came to Downtown Markham!

LOCATION: 169 Enterprise Blvd, Unionville, ON


Poké bowl at Poké Guys Toronto

Poké Guys

Poké Guys is one of my fave poké bowl spots in Toronto, and you can also find them in Downtown Markham.

You can choose between their signature bowls or build your own, and they have a nice selection of marinated raw tuna and salmon to choose from.

They’re super generous with their sashimi, and they have some of the best sauces for poké bowls!

They also have a location in downtown Toronto, and they’ll be opening one in Vaughan soon.

LOCATION: 8110 Birchmount Rd. Unit 10, Markham, ON


Draco Markham

Enjoy Canadian-inspired cuisine and craft cocktails at this swanky spot inside the Toronto Marriott Markham.

Kiu Japanese Restaurant

Craving some sushi while you’re in Downtown Markham?

Kiu is one of the best sushi restaurants in Markham, and they serve up all kinds of amazing Japanese and fusion dishes.

The menu is quite pricy, but definitely worth it if you’re looking for quality and delicious seafood.

If you’re feeling fancy, go for the Premium Kaisen Don for 2 or the Lobster Don for 2 (comes with lobster miso soup)!

LOCATION: 169 Enterprise Blvd 2nd Floor, Markham, ON


Demetres in Markham, Ontario

Demetres

So this isn’t actually a food restaurant, but I’m including it ’cause it’s a dessert restaurant. ‘Kay? Okay.

I’ve been going to Demetres for desserts for as long as I can remember, and their Downtown Markham location is probably my favourite of them all.

The space is absolutely stunning, and hella Instagram-worthy if that’s what you’re looking for.

If you haven’t been to Demetres before, you’ll definitely appreciate the punny names of all the items on the menu.

Come here for ice cream crepes, loaded sundaes, and creamy milkshakes!
