The Best Restaurants in Parkdale

The best restaurants in Parkdale are doling out everything from momos to tacos and French fare.

Despite growing popularity for its multicultural and diverse cuisines, this small west end neighbourhood still remains vastly underrated -- Parkdale is defined by a food culture born out of diverse immigrant families bringing their traditional food to the area.

The main strip that runs along Queen West is home to many of the city's best restaurants, where you'll be able to find just about anything you desire.

Here are some of the best restaurants for takeout and delivery in Parkdale.

1526 Queen St W

Himalayan Kitchen

Himalayan Kitchen

A Tibetan favourite that serves up Nepalese, Tibetan and Indian fusion. Their most popular dishes included Himalayan momos tossed in various curries and sauces, Beef Gyuthak soup and Thali lunch sets. They have also launched their own personal app, Momo2Go, where you can get their popular momos anywhere you'd like.

1278 Queen St W

Rustic Cosmo Cafe

Rustic Cosmo Cafe

The definition of a hidden gem in Parkdale. Not many people have heard of this small cafe that's serving up brunch and coffee classics, but they should. Its ambiance is quintessential Parkdale, while also having tasty eats like their omelettes, wraps and bagel sandwiches.

1265 Queen St W

Bar Vegandale

Bar Vegandale

This spot near Queen and Elm Grove serves up vegan eats by Doomie's. They create vegan alternatives to many meat favourites like fried chicken, mac and cheese and their own take on the Big Mac. One of the best places for vegan eats in the entire city.

1263 Queen St W

Le Phenix

Le Phenix

From the team at Chantecler, one of Canada's top restaurants is a small French pop-up serving classic French plates and spectacular wines. You'll obviously find some of Chantecler's classics like the steak tartare and the chicken liver pate, as well as some newer items like the haddock brandade, duck confit and the Grand Mac Burger, their 6 oz dry-aged beef burger.

1544 Queen St W

Tibet Kitchen

Tibet Kitchen

Tibet Kitchen has been around seemingly forever now and is basically a Parkdale institution. The momos are obviously their most popular item but don't sleep on the Chicken Chili, Gyuma (Tibetan beef sausages) and Phingsha, a mung bean noodle dish consisting of beef, potatoes and mushrooms.

1690 Queen St W

Islas Filipino BBQ

Islas Filipino BBQ

Islas Filipino BBQ & Bar is another swanky Parkdale joint that serves traditional Filipino brunch and kamayan dinners in a modern setting. You'll be able to find classic dishes like sisig, lechon and the massive boodle boxes, which require eating with your hands traditionally.

5 Brock Ave

Superfly

Superfly

A swanky hip little bar with a cool patio that replaced the old Electric Mud BBQ location. They serve up classic and unique cocktails and also serve small plates. Menus are seasonal and they have also brought in some other restaurants serving food as well. Currently, you'll find Kaboom cooking up delicious platters of sweet and spicy Korean fried chicken.

1314 Queen St W

Guu Izakaya

Guu Izakaya

Many can recall when Kinka used to be Guu Izakaya, but after an ownership change, Guu Izakaya is now only open at one location and that's in Parkdale. Still serving some of the best izakaya eats around like their tatakis, udon and wagyu beef sliders.

1205 Queen St W

Matt's Burger Lab

Matt's Burger Lab

A newer addition to the Parkdale food scene, Matt's Burger Labs serves up massive halal burger creations. Lots of creativity that you would expect from a place that calls itself a lab. You'll find massive towering burgers stacked with anything you can think of. They use ground striploin for most of their burgers, but you can also dive into other items like lamb burgers, chicken burgers, hot dogs and cheesesteaks.

1456 Queen St W

Mother India

Mother India

Indian restaurant that serves rotis and several other popular dishes. The rotis are stuffed with whatever filling you like and are deceivingly filling. The dosas and biryanis are also very popular and make for the perfect meal for a cold night where you just want to tuck into some carbs.

Run by a husband and wife duo, this tiny Tibetan restaurant is known for having some of the city's bestmomos. They focus on the popular Tibetan dumplings but also delve into other dishes like chili pork belly, fried noodles and even pho.
