    Best guilty pleasures to Eat in Toronto as Voted by Knifewear Staff

    Toronto, a city celebrated for its cultural diversity and culinary offerings, is home to an array of delightful indulgences. At Knifewear Toronto, our team is passionate about food, and we can't resist the temptation of some of Toronto's most mouthwatering guilty pleasures. In this blog post, we invite you to join us as we explore our favourite dishes that provide pure satisfaction and offer a taste of the unique flavours this city has to offer.

    Twigg's Jamaican Patty with a Grace Peanut Punch

    First up, we have Twigg's choice for a guilty pleasure: a classic Jamaican patty accompanied by a Grace Peanut Punch. Jamaican patties are known for their flaky pastry filled with seasoned meat or vegetables. The combination with Grace Peanut Punch, a sweet and nutty beverage, creates a tantalizing blend of savoury and sweet that transports Twigg's taste buds to the sunny shores of the Caribbean, right in the heart of Toronto.

    Twigg didn't give us a favourite location, but this list from BlogTO is pretty solid.

    Maddie's Caledonian Mac & Cheese with a Deep Fried Mars Bar

    Maddie's comfort food of choice is the Caledonia Mac & Cheese, a creamy, cheesy delight that's a classic in comfort cuisine. But she takes it a step further by enjoying it alongside a deep-fried Mars bar. The result is a perfect harmony of rich, cheesy pasta and a crispy, sweet treat. It's a comforting guilty pleasure that's sure to put a smile on your face.

    Brian's Sneaky Dee's Nachos with Extra Cheese and Well Done

    Brian's guilty pleasure is all about Sneaky Dee's Nachos, a Toronto icon known for their generous toppings and incredible flavour. Brian loves to load them up with extra cheese and have them cooked until they're well done, ensuring every chip is perfectly crispy and the cheese is melted to gooey perfection. It's a nacho lover's paradise.
