There’s no denying that Toronto is full of amazing restaurants; the city has a roster of talented chefs that are sure to blow your mind time and time again. But one of the issues with living in a metropolitan city is that things can get expensive – we’re talking 86th most expensive city in the world, expensive – and that includes dinners and nights out.
Luckily, Toronto is full of hidden gems and within each pocket of each neighbourhood is one to discover. The latest find? A Filipino feast for just $15.
Tinuno Restaurant is the brainchild of Cathy Ortega & Gerald Quintey. The two opened the restaurant with the desire to bring the city authentic Filipino food without the price tag of an air ticket to the Philippines. The result is Tinuno. Located at 31 Howard St. in Toronto, the restaurant serves up traditional Kamayan feasts. Each feast is served on a banana leaf laid out on top a table with rice covered in pork, fish, okra, eggplant, squid, mussel and shrimp. Here, eating with your hands is the mainstream route and utensils are optional.
What’s best about Tinuno is that the prices are good. The cost to experience their Filipino fare is just $15 per person. There’s just one catch – you’ve gotta make a reservation first. Get Tinuno’s number here and make sure you book a table soon – you won’t regret it!
Until then, take a peek at their offerings below.
