Petit Potato

1-10 Ravel Rd, North York, ON M2H 1S8

North York’s Petit Potato has lunch and main menus filled with Taiwanese dishes like deep fried tofu with satay sauce and pork cutlet omurice with spicy curry sauce, but it’s the Golden Toast series that has been making waves in Toronto. The Golden Toast Series compromises of sweet toast piled high, and smothered in toppings like ice cream, marshmallows and strawberries. Some of them, standing at 10 inches high, are meant for sharing!
