There are a LOT of food options in the city (understatement of the century). From charcoal ice cream to cookie dough scoops, it seems like every food trend seems to hit the city eventually. However, there are the staple favourites that every Torontonian has grown to know and love. Let's be honest though, if you haven't been to at least 19 of these 30 notable spots in the city or had their signature dishes, are you even doing the Toronto food scene right?

The candidate's campaign is currently paused.
Toronto Liberal candidate Kevin Vuong has been asked to pause his campaign by the Liberal Party after a dropped sexual assault charge from 2019 has come to light.
The Toronto Star reported that Vuong was charged with sexual assault in 2019. However, according to the Toronto Star, the charge was withdrawn later that year.
Trudeau said the Liberal party first learned about the allegations from the Toronto Star's report and "are looking into it very carefully," and have "asked the candidate to pause his campaign."
"First of all, as you said, we are a party that always takes seriously any allegations or reports of sexual harassment or intimidation or assault that has been clear from the very beginning. As you also pointed out, we only learned about these serious allegations yesterday through the work of the Toronto Star. We are looking into it very carefully, and we have asked the candidate to pause his campaign," said Trudeau.
When asked if Vuong would be able to sit as a Liberal if he wins his seat, Trudeau responded, "We're looking into it right now, we've asked him to pause the campaign and we're trying to find out more."
Vuong told the Toronto Star in an interview that he wishes to "unequivocally state that these allegations are false" and says that he "vigorously fought" the charges up until they were dropped in November 2019.
Ford's relentless love of Tim Hortons has confused Ontario at times, from endorsing Smile Cookies to ending a COVID-19 press conference by gushing about their egg sandwiches.
Here are six times Ford has proven his unbridled devotion to the coffee chain.
Tim Hortons Smile Cookies 2021
Thanks to amazing @TimHortons owners like the Seth family, the 2020 #SmileCookie campaign raised over $10 million for @BreakfastClubz & other great charities, hospitals & community groups across Canada.— Doug Ford (@fordnation) September 16, 2021
Get a #SmileCookie at your local Tim's before September 19th! pic.twitter.com/5WO2bUmXCZ
Ford posted a Smile Cookie promo video to his Twitter telling folks to "go pick up a nice cookie, have a little bite mmm mmm, great cookies." He even deemed them the "best ever" before ending his video with a cheeky grin.
Egg Sandwich Endorsement Of 2021
At the end of a COVID-19 press conference in February 2021, Ford plugged Tim Hortons' new real egg sandwiches, saying, "Oh yeah, I got to give Timmies a good plug. The best thing you guys ever did is make those real egg sandwiches. I used to go eat those other ones. They're the best, those real egg sandwiches. So whoever did that at Timmies, good for you."
Casually Flexing His Tim Hortons In A Pic
I was thrilled to sit down with my friend and newly elected #AFN National Chief @ChiefRoseAnne as well as Ontario Regional Chief Glen Hare.— Doug Ford (@fordnation) August 6, 2021
I’m looking forward to working with both of you to make sure our government continues to be there to support you and your communities. pic.twitter.com/UWgCkeAzPJ
Ford posted this picture on August 6 and couldn't help but flex his love for Tim Hortons with not one but five Tim Hortons cups on the table.
Camp Day 2020
Today is @TimHortons Camp Day in support of @TimsCamps!— Doug Ford (@fordnation) August 12, 2020
Your coffee or bracelet purchase today will help youth develop leadership and responsibility skills to help them succeed.
You can support anywhere in the province at your nearest Tims! ☕️ #TimsCampDay pic.twitter.com/K1uMuwjBFQ
Last summer, Doug Ford went out to his favourite Tim Horton's location ( yes, he really disclosed he has a location preference) to encourage everyone to buy a coffee and bracelet to support kids going to camp.
National Coffee Day 2020
Ford couldn't let National Coffee Day pass him buy without giving a shout out to Tim Hortons in 2020.
Smile Cookies 2020: Pit stop Edition
Coming back full circle, in September 2020 Ford gave a pit stop promo for Smile Cookies on his way to Guelph before a 1 p.m. announcement.
Get a dose and some cash.
While there are plenty of reasons to get vaccinated against COVID-19, some people can add extra cash to the list.
Some companies in Ontario are incentivizing their employees to get vaccinated by offering them extra money to do so.
An Amazon representative told Narcity they have offered the program for "several months."
"We strongly believe that the best way to protect our front-line employees and communities from COVID-19 is through vaccinations. We offer a $100 benefit to new hires who come to Amazon already vaccinated — and to current employees who show proof of vaccination — to encourage them to do so."
The representative said they have "supported on-site and offsite vaccination clinics across our network over the past few months to help employees and members of the local communities receive theirs quickly and easily."
Bushtukah, an outdoor gear store in Ottawa, is offering employees who are fully vaccinated against COVID-19 $500.
Both Bushtukah's locations in Ottawa are offering the incentive. David Morton, financial controller at Bushtukah, told Narcity earlier this month that the bonus was to thank staff after having a successful first half of the year.
"You know, as opposed to asking managers to do individual performance assessments during the busy summer and come up with a more complex bonus program, this was a way to share the success of the business in the first of half of the year in a simple way but also tie to something that made sense from a public health standpoint."
EACOM Timber Corporation
EACOM Timber Corporation rolled out its incentive program in May, according to CTV News.
The company operates in Ontario and Quebec and is reportedly offering a confidential program for employees and contractors until the end of 2021, according to CTV News Toronto.
The program gives employees $200 for getting their first dose of a COVID-19 vaccine and an additional $150 for their second dose. Those who go with a vaccine that only requires a single dose receive a total of $350 upfront.
Health Canada has a robust website with all the latest information on the vaccines and can answer any questions you may have. Click here for more information.

"I replay the numbers each week and the numbers are made up of my birthday, my husband's birthday and our wedding date."
Sandra Kaspar, a 59-year-old from Ramara, won a Lotto 6/49 second prize for $75,791.20 in the August 7 draw after playing the same numbers for two years, according to OLG.
"I replay the numbers each week, and the numbers are made up of my birthday, my husband's birthday and our wedding date," said Kasper.
Kaspar says she checks her tickets after buying them at the store, and the day she won, she was in disbelief after the amount of money she had won came up.
"I ran out to my car, called my husband then ran back into the store to check the ticket again. I was in disbelief."
"At first my husband thought I was joking with him! He did not believe me, but he quickly realized I was serious and was so happy for me!"
Kaspar plans on using her winnings to add to her retirement funds and share her new richness with her ten children.
