Alt Dot Comedy Lounge @ Rivoli
334 Queen St. W
Eats & Laughs showcases the best restaurants, bars, and some local fast food serving great meals and drinks near Toronto's best comedy venues. Curated by Mike Christie, you can listen to Mike talk food, comedy, and Toronto on our podcast Back of the House.
Alt Dot Comedy Lounge at the Rivoli, near Queen & Spadina, may just host Toronto's best comedy night every Monday. Here you'll see Toronto's top comics, wedged into a night of 12+ comics. Before, during, and after each set, you may need a snack. Check out some of Mike's favourite local spots:
My favourite is the Priest with bacon - cheeseburger, deep fried cheese stuffed portobello mushroom, bacon
Banh Mi Boys
Kimchi poutine is the best thing on the menu, but both pork belly and braised beef cheek on their banh mi, tacos, or bao have always been great. Their thick, doughy flour tortillas for their tacos are addictive.
Enjoy the green smoothies, wraps, and bowls, and convince yourself that sweet potato fries are healthy. Feel the wonderful Cafe Gratitude hippie energy.
