I love Filipino Food! Having been half filipino and lived in Philippines it’s my mission to hunt for the best Filipino restaurant in Toronto.
A friend of mine recommended to try out Platito for Brunch. They’ve been open now for 2 months. You know I always give the honest review on everything. I’m a little disappointed in this place and was hesitant to blog about it. But good or bad it has be heard.
Platito is located at
647- 347 – 0135
First thing I noticed is the price. It’s too pricey and the brunch menu doesn’t offer that much. I was hoping for the food to taste good.
I ordered the beef tapa. The presentation looks really good but when I started eating it I got really more disappointed. Food was not that warm and the beef was really hard, not what I was hoping for a $15 meal. I finished my plate as I was really starving having been walking around from Yorkville to the location.
The 2nd thing I tried is their famous dessert and my favorite UBE (the new matcha) made to be a waffle topped with ube ice cream with macapuno and filipino stick-o. Again the presentation looks appealing, But the waffle wasn’t impressive. I can’t taste the ube in it, the ice cream is really good! and I love the originality but not really on the taste.
After the disappointing brunch (The waiter even gave us the wrong change! The bill was $47 and we gave him 70 to have the extra $20 bill to be changed for the tip he came back with $11. umm hello? We did correct him but still gave the wrong change, we just gave up. lol) we walked around the neighbourhood towards UofT to admire the beautiful victorian homes.
I also found a perfect place for outfit photos.
A little sneeze ruin the shot tho.. let’s do it again..
A better look! hahaha
Get The Look:
Found that the romper is on sale in ASOS
Overall Verdict about Platito:
- love the presentation of the food.
- love the location and the ambiance of the place
- Philippine memorabilia were nice touches.
- Service and time of the orders were efficient
- Price is too expensive for the portion and quality of the food
- Food is not warm enough
- Food does not taste really good and fresh
- Pandesal does not look fresh at all
Totally not going back for brunch anymore at this place, I did hear they serve better after 5pm with pulutan (bbq-grill filipino style serve when drinking) but maybe thats up to you to try.
