A Taste of Harlem in TorontoOctober 10th, 2010 | 2 comments
I’ve never been to Harlem, nor do I know much about the Harlem Renaissance but what I do know is that Harlem Restaurant serves damn good food.
According to their website:
“Inspired by the Harlem Renaissance of the 1920s, Harlem celebrates the joy of Toronto’s cultural diversity and the art of entertaining. It is a rebirth of creativity in Food, Art, Music, and Cocktails.”
I usually go to the east location on Richmond St. but when I heard they opened a location on Queen West AND they added chicken n’ waffles to the menu, I had to check it out.
The Harlem East location finally added the chicken n’ waffles to the menu which was good for me since I prefer that location better. Just as a note for those who may be checking out Harlem for the first time, the food preparation is not always the same.
I still love it though because no matter the variation, it’s always tasty. I’ve been to the restaurant more times than I can remember. Here’s a few more items I’ve tried (that I have pictures of).
Sweet potato biscuits
I also recommend the chicken or catfish lafayette, jerk meatloaf and the ribs. And don’t forget about the sweet potato pancakes available during their weekend brunch!
