I was at Fresco by chance and had a lunch. What was exceptionally great is the service. I'm very impressed by Todd, who was manning the cashier, serving the table and super friendly and helpful. He even ran to open the door for a lady...More

Fish & chips is usually disappointing to me, it's frozen, greasy, and lacks taste. Not this place! Well worth a stop!

This place was great! I assume the man that was telling us about the menu was the owner but I really don't know. Either way he took the time to explain everything and actually go in to some details we never would have considered otherwise...More

This shop is very easy to miss if you're not paying attention. It's a no frills kinda place, just laidback and casual. I had haddock with chips and it was delicious. Better than some of the fish and chips I had while in London.

I ordered the two-piece cod with fries and slaw. The fish portions and the amount of fries were (contrary to some reviews) more than I could eat. The fries, fish, and slaw are all spot on. For the fish they offer a traditional batter, as...More

Toronto's main Chinatown has the honor of being the
largest in North America. Gaping down across Dundas
Street West and Spadina Avenue, the area is a
wonderful medley of shops and restaurants, busy signs
and bright red gates, a destination for foodie fun.
Chinatown's streets are always bustling, packed with
people and outdoor stalls hawking fresh produce and
products. The restaurants and authentic marketplaces

We are trying our best to sustain the global fish stock and the oceans themselves. We use only the best fish, chosen for its consistent excellence. Some of our fish are Ocean Wise sustainable seafood products. We are committed to add one more OceanWise product every three to six months or as they become availabble. Marine Stewardship Council logo Some of our other fish, while not being Ocean Wise approved, are certified sustainable by the Marine Stewardship Council. Since opening, Fresco's Fish & Chips has used the highest quality oil available. Low in saturated fat, FRY-ON...ZTF is a unique blend of healthy canola and corn oils that are non-hydrogenated. Containing 0 grams of trans fat per serving, it allows you to enjoy flavorful fried food in a much healthier way. We love our fish, so we use a light batter which compliments the fish without overpowering it. Our traditional batter is done the old fashioned way using a wheat flour and yellow corn flour. We love our customers, so we make our coleslaw by hand with fresh Ontario grown veggies and a delicious creamy dressing. We love our planet, so we use all biodegradable takeout cutlery and packaging. We recycle in the restaurant and encourage the same at home. Try one of our specialties: amazing Quebec Style Poutine! Alternately, try or our filling and delicious Meat Chili Poutine, loaded with Michael's incredible home made chili and white cheddar cheese curds. Try substituting sweet potato fries for a tasty twist on the traditional meal! For our Vegan friends and customers, we offer Daiya, a delicious dairy, lactose, casein, gluten and soy free alternative to traditional cheese, as well as a fresh Ontario grown Vegan Mushroom Gravy for the best Vegan Poutine or you have ever had. Michael's savory Vegan Chili is a great addition for a hungry herbivore. None of our carefully selected ingredients contain peanut: we are a Peanut Free Zone. From our deep fried pickles to our extra crispy Miss Vicky's style batter, we are always adding interesting options, and are always on the lookout for healthy and stimulating new flavors and ideas! Stop by and listen to the Beatles with us while you eat in the heart of Kensington Market, or take your food to go! We look forward to seeing you soon!
