Best Restaurants in Markham

The Earl of Whitchurch | Stouffville

For many of us, the point of going to a pub is to have a cold delicious pint. Now, there is certainly no shortage of excellent local beers to choose from at the Earl of Whitchurch, but we were there for the food. This is a pub for people who like to eat, and eat WELL. The mac 'n cheese burger is huge and juicy and really quite beautiful to behold.

Dragon Legend | Markham

Bian Lian or face changing is an ancient Chinese dramatic art. The masks are brightly painted and represent characters from Sichuan opera. Each colour represents a different character and the faces are highly differentiated. The performer wears an elaborate and vivid traditional costume moving quickly to fast paced music alternating movement with poses. With a swipe of the fan or a movement of their head their entire face changes before the eyes of an astonished audience. The secret of the face change has been passed down from one generation to the next within families. Traditionally only males were permitted to learn Bian Lian, the theory being that women do not stay within the family and would marry out passing the secret to another family. It is truly something to behold and is part of the rich cultural experience a guest at Dragon Legend can expect. Performances take place every Wednesday evening starting at 6:45 p.m.

Fancy Chinese Cuisine | Markham

If you are looking for the best dim sum in Toronto, I recommend heading over to Markham. Fancy Chinese Cuisine at Kennedy and 14th was one of the tastiest culinary experiences I have ever had, at the most reasonable price.

Federick Restaurant | Markham

Welcome to Federick in Markham. This is where me and my work peeps eat lunch when we are in a happy mood and want to take our joy to the next level. Jordan is waiting patiently for our usual order of mixed vegetables, Hakka noodles, Manchurian fried rice and General Tso beef and chicken.

Le Bistro Lounge - Courtyard & TownePlace by Marriott | Markham

I love going out to lunch. It makes a regular workday a little more special. I'm always looking for new places to eat near our studios that serve great food and are easy to meet up with your friends at. Le Bistro Lounge, located at the Courtyard Marriott Markham (right on Woodbine just north of Steeles) is lovely. The food is delicious and the service is outstanding.

Marca on Main | Markham: NOW CLOSED

*UPDATE: This is now a banquet hall for private events. Marca on the Wharf in Cobourg is a full-serve restaurant open to the public.*

Tucked right in that lovely stretch of historic Main Street Markham is a beautiful restaurant with seriously authentic Italian food. Marca on Main is open for lunch on Friday afternoons and on a warm July day it felt like a little escape to a trattoria in Rome. No one wants to make tough decisions in the summer so we ordered most of the appetizers and lots of white wine. The calamari fritti were light and tasty, served with fresh horseradish, garlic and lemon aioli.

Ding Tai Fung | Markham

We wrapped up Chopstick Walk 2015 with Shanghai-style dim sum at Ding Tai Fung on Highway 7. Located in the busy and huge First Markham Place strip mall, this restaurant is popular for its xiaolongbao (steamed buns prepared in bamboo steaming baskets.) The chefs make everything fresh to order. It's very cool to watch them do their dim sum thing behind a glass wall.
