While still new, Platito has already garnered a reputation for serving up hearty entrees and tasty tapas-style dishes. The restaurant specializes in Filipino soul food with a contemporary twist, meaning the menu ranges from traditional fare such as tapsilog and longsilog, to modern culinary mash-ups such as fried chicken and ube waffles. The result is a unique restaurant experience that gives Torontonians a chance to sample some delicious Filipino ingredients.

With a menu spanning from brunch to dessert, Platito is a perfect option for any time of day.
