Despite the yummy sound of “all-you-can-eat” sushi, the fact of the matter is that most of these types of restaurants serve sloppy and hastily put together rolls and sashimi. By calling it “all-you-can-taste” Spoon and Fork has already raised the classiness level a couple of notches.
Spoon and Fork Etobicoke, located at 1233 The Queensway (just east of Islington), is an upscale restaurant that serves “all-you-can-taste” Japanese and Thai cuisine. Note that when I use the word upscale I’m not equating the place to some snooty, expensive restaurant. The first thing you’ll notice is that the place is busy. If you don’t have reservations expect to be waiting 30 to 45 minutes for a table. It’s not the end of the world if you do have to wait however, as you can grab a seat at the bar and chat up the bartender, or more importantly, your date.
When it comes to food Spoon and Fork is no slouch. You can order from the regular menu but honestly, where’s the fun in that. The tasting menu, at a mere $28 per person, is where the fun is at. It’s from here that you can select from a variety of options. From tasty apps such as saute chicken skewers and mango salad, to traditional Japanese fare such as sashimi and California rolls, to Thai mains such as Pad Thai and cashew chicken. The great thing is that all these portions are built to share. I’m not doing the menu justice as you really have to see it for yourself. Obviously don’t overorder too much as any leftover food will be charged to you but trust me, this won’t be a problem as everything we had was fantastic and we finished every last bite.
So if you have a group of friends and you can’t really decide on what you’d like to eat, check out Spoon and Fork Etobicoke. There’s something for everyone and you’ll have fun sharing your food. Afterall, sharing is caring.
