Here’s our take on some of the best late night food by neighborhood — your hungover self will thank us later.
 

The Junction

The Hole In The Wall

Open til 2 a.m. and equipped with a saintly ambience (a-la stained glass windows above the bar), The Hole In The Wall is a Junction mainstay of the most divine eats. Try one of their melt-in-your-mouth Reuben sandwiches after a night out and trust us, you’ll believe in angels.


 

Cabbagetown

House on Parliament

A late night menu serving up meals until 1 a.m., you can grab everything from a delectable smoked duck breast salad to their godly bangers and mash. A great place to spend your night out with friends.

Chinatown

Swatow Restaurant

This modestly decorated joint has been saving us from late night hunger cravings for years. Because who doesn’t love some pork dumplings and chicken fried rice after a beer binge in Kensington Market? We definitely do. Open till 2 a.m. or later.

Liberty Village

Smoke’s Poutinerie

No Canadian best late night food list would be complete without a little (you-guessed-it) poutine! Smoke’s in Liberty Village is your best bet for a little post-boozing bliss. Open until 4 a.m. on Fridays and Saturdays.


 

Parkdale

Grand Electric

Open till 2 a.m., Grand Electric is a choice spot for authentic Mexican cuisine. Their beef cheek and pork belly tacos are just bursting with endless fresh flavours. For our vegetarian friends out there, the crispy cauliflower tacos will definitely keep you coming back for more!
