Best restaurants for menu design in Toronto

Best restaurants for menu design in Toronto

At first glance, Guu’s menu is a visual nightmare - white Japanese kanji characters that look like messy scribbles on a black background, with English translation underneath. It’s too busy for the eye to focus on one place. But thankfully, the dishes are laid out in grids and they are colour-coded for your convenience. Red is appetizer, green denote cold dishes, etc. At what first appears to be chaos turns out to be quite orderly. You just have to settle into it. Which actually describes the place itself very well.

The fancier option to the Japanese-pub-inspired Guu Izakaya, Saka Bar is the place to try unique and gourmet fare from seared B.C. tuna sashimi to foot-long grilled pork-cheek skewers. Fusions like the carbonara udon and traditionals like the marinated jellyfish can be drunk down with Samurai sake shooters or vodka sodas infused with lychee and grapefruit. It’s energetic and bustling at this Annex resto-bar and the 4$ to $12 plates come out quick. It’s an ideal spot to grab a bite and drink and get you in a party frame of mind for the rest of the evening.

Where to eat and drink in the Annex during Hot Docs

When Vancouver’s wildly popular Guu franchise launched its first Toronto location back in 2011 it became one of the forerunners in the city’s now burgeoning izakaya scene. The Bloor Street outpost (affectionately known as Guu 2) is a high-energy dining room where enthusiastic staff deliver Asian-fusion small plates to packed communal tables filled with noisy twenty-somethings. The menu is designed for sharing and lists an array of tapas-style dishes like kimchi udon, deep-fried octopus and curry bibimbap. We suggest washing down your meal with an oversized beer stein filled with ice-cold Sapporo.
