Chubby’s is a Jamaican restaurant located in the King West neighbourhood of Toronto. Chubby’s is a restaurant that celebrates Caribbean food and uses traditional Caribbean cuisine but with healthy, culinary twists. Angela Lawrence and Chef Donavon Campbell have used their Jamaican roots to bring their culture and food to this vibrant Toronto restaurant.
Janet Zuccarini, the owner of Chubby’s and Gusto 101, has created another inviting and satisfying dining experience. With the help of her team and their Jamaican roots, they have created a place that makes you feel at home but also close to the beach with all its plants and calm colours.
The food here is inspired by home-style cooking and is infused with the vibrancy and warmth that is Jamaican culture and its people. They specialize in jerk chicken, curries & other Jamaican snacks, plus tropical cocktails. To start they offer Likkle bites, which are different types of appetizers. Some of the people’s favourites include spicy jerk plantain and chips, saltfish fritters, mini-patties, and pepper-shrimp. They also offer amazing chicken, jerk pork, shrimp, and veggie options so everyone can enjoy a delicious and satisfying meal in this resort-style restaurant. They may have a short menu but each item is made with passion and love and is bursting with flavour.
Chubby’s is located in a 127-year-old 3-bedroom building that has been transformed into a 2-story 100-seat restaurant. With soulful hospitality, the atmosphere is friendly and relaxed, transporting guests to a tropical island. The interior is modern but with resort-like touches and laid-back tropical decor. You will be surrounded by hanging plants, palm tree murals, cute pineapple fixtures, and warm colours. Because this restaurant was built inside a 1890s row house, it brings a sense of comfort that other restaurants sometimes lack. You’ll feel right at home in the calming atmosphere and with the passionate and friendly people.
