M8 Bistro & Bar Tasting Menu

Taking a small break from my Toronto trip, I want to introduce you to an Asian fusion restaurant that has been always on my to-go list since day 1.

When I was in high school, I would sometime sneak out to get food on Main Street with my friends. There are many hidden gems in this neighborhood, and I am always frustrated in choosing what to eat.
