Mac and cheese

Cheesy goodness is in your future if you visit Vaughan! Try the jalapeno mac and cheese from State and Main for some spice in your life, or Hank Daddy’s BBQ where you can also pick up some yummy brisket and tots to enjoy with your cheesy pasta concoction.

Nachos and tacos

Mexican food is high on the list for satisfying comfort food cravings and Vaughan doesn’t disappoint. Ay Caramba Eh offers authentic Mexican food with a Canadian touch. 3 Mariachis are known for their famous nachos, mariachi supreme fries and taco options including tiger shrimp, chorizo and fish.



For the ultimate Canadian comfort food, you can’t beat poutine. Smoke’s Poutinerie has a wide variety of the infamous combination of french fries, gravy and cheese curds, including traditional, veggie or meat added on top. If it’s a classic diner-style version you’re craving, be sure to check out Top Gun Burger, where you can get traditional poutine, cheese fries or sloppy beef fries.

Chicken and waffles

If sweet and savoury is more your style, the combination of crispy chicken and fluffy waffles takes the crown for comfort food.

Evviva serves their fried chicken breast on top of a freshly baked waffle with BBQ sauce and jalapenos and don’t forget to try their extensive cocktail and mocktail selection! At St Louis Bar and Grill, two Belgian waffles are layered with chicken tenders, and topped with their famous Garlic Dill sauce and sweet sriracha.
