There’s nothing we love more than some 6ix pride and we can’t help but feel the love from Marvel star, Simu Liu. The Canadian actor returned to Toronto last month to create a video in partnership with Google that represents his essence. His individuality is captured by walking the streets of Toronto, dining at his three favourite restaurants and catching a Raptors game.
Good partnerships are all about compromise.— Simu Liu (刘思慕) (@SimuLiu) January 17, 2022
Case in point – when the @GoogleCanada team asked me to do a #Pixel6 video that "reflected my individuality"… I grabbed a camera crew, ate three dinners, and then went to a Raptors game.
See? Compromise! Thanks @MadeByGoogle! ???? pic.twitter.com/GOUPQcSzk4
In the video, Simu says that he knows Toronto so intimately since he grew up riding the TTC into the downtown core since he was eleven. As he grows in his career, he claims that home becomes the thing that grounds him and luckily for us, home is Toronto. If you’re looking to feel close to the Marvel star, try supporting one of his favourite restaurants in The 6ix.
Here are Simu Liu’s Favourite Restaurants in Toronto
House of Gourmet
Simu claims this is a Chinatown staple; somewhere you can count on for Ginger Scallion Lobster at 2am. Try this iconic spot next time you’re looking for some authentic food on Spadina.
Highlighting Chef’s Assembly Hall, this is Simu’s go-to sushi spot in Toronto. He even calls it the ‘best sushi’ and recommends the Omakase-style tasting menu for high quality sushi at a reasonable price.
Referring to this spot as ‘out of this world’, it’s clear Sabai Sabai is one of Simu Liu’s favourite restaurants! He frequents the spot and recommends the Lao Chicken Wings!
