What Toronto radio and TV personality Roz Weston would eat on a perfect day.
Breakfast: Scrambled burrito at The Drake
I get mine with sausage, no beans, extra peppers, and a side of hot sauce, and I swap the home fries for regular fries. This is my favorite place to do breakfast with my three-year-old daughter. We split a side of bacon and a bowl of vanilla ice cream—ordering ice cream first, of course—and she brings her own sprinkles. Sometimes questionable parenting results in amazing breakfasts!
$15. 1150 Queen St. W., 416-531-5042, thedrakehotel.ca.
Lunch: Three chicken molé tacos at La Tortilleria
Toronto is in the middle of a taco boom, which I love, but I’m a bit of a purist. I order three tacos with pico de gallo, extra cheese, Mexican rice, tons of hot sauce, and no beans: I’ve never liked them. The tacos here are what you’d get at an amateur boxing match in Guadalajara: simple and traditional. While I wait, I down a Mexican Coke.
$7.25. 1009 Dufferin St., 416-901-7842, latortilleria.ca.
Dinner: Steak and fries with pierogies at The Saint Tavern
Because I wake up at 4 a.m. [for the Roz and Mocha Show], I tend to look for appetizers and mains that pair well together so I’m home before 9 p.m. I get my flank steak done medium on the inside and charred on the outside. I usually ask for bread to soak up the leftover sour cream and bacon from the pierogies. Also: three beers.
$36. 227 Ossington Ave., 647-350-2100, thesainttavern.com.
