As you walk into this tiny restaurant, you feel like you're leaving Toronto and entering a cowboy-friendly town out west in the 1950s. The place has old-style milkshake glasses, table-side juke boxes and a classic diner menu. However, Filipino food is also served at the Ritz.
The Sunday breakfast crowd is a mix of Filipinos and others in the neighbourhood in search of cheap, hearty breakfasts. It's just $4.95 for a "Canadian" breakfast. Add a Toronto touch to your meal with peameal bacon and it'll come to $5.50.
It's worth checking out the Filipino breakfasts. You can choose between tapisilog (pieces of marinated beef), dangsilog (marinated fish) and longanisa (a type of sweetened sausage). Each plate is served with a couple of nicely poached eggs and tasty garlic sticky rice.
|The tapsilog (beef) is a bit sweet, but tastes great with the vinegar sauce.|
