I know I might be the last person in the bandwagon to give Spin Toronto (@Spin_Toronto) a visit but hey – I finally made my way over last week for a sneak preview for their spring menu. Introducing Spin Toronto’s new head chef, Nichole McLellan (from Grazing Goat in the UK & Mercatto) – we had a fun experience chatting with her whilst tasting her latest culinary creations!

Trying to concentrate on taking pictures whilst trying very hard to not watch the ping pong games going on around was quite a task. The highlights for me from their spring menu was the fish board ( I love sea bass and trout) keeping in mind that I have a high tolerance for “fishiness”. The fried green tomatoes were quite something something – in the sense that it was unique to deep fry something so healthy. I loved the hint of sourness in the green tomatoes but it was offset with all the batter going on! Lastly, I wished I would have loved the Braised west grey beef sandwich more… It was quite the messy sandwich to indulge & really loved the flavours in the first bite but grew saltier with each bite I took. If the braised west grey beef was marinated a bit lighter it would have made the perfect sandwich!
Nonetheless, if you’re ever down for a match of ping pong X dinner all in one convenient location for a casual night out – Spin is the place!
