Toronto Bites: bb’s diner

For our 6th anniversary (6th! Can you believe it?), Mikaius and I spent our day out eating good food and exploring the Ontario Science Centre! We decided to go to bbs diner for lunch, a Filipino diner at 76 Lippincott Street that looks, feels, and tastes like your grandma’s kitchen. Whatever your grandma’s kitchen was like, it’s like this. The dishware and cutlery are mismatched, the seating is close together and is situated on both the ground and second floor, and the food is simple but so, so good.

We ordered the sausage silog (with two eggs fried crispy at the edges, some atchara, and an amazing garlic fried rice), the fried chicken, and Mama Marivic’s french toast (topped with coconut, almonds, and banana dulce de leche). My goodness, the flavours! I’ve already gone back with another friend, and I’m sure that I’ll go again sometime this summer or spring. The food is bursting with flavour and character, and is beautifully nostalgic on the plate. Bb’s diner is a uniquely Filipino-Canadian experience, and definitely worth a visit!


Bb’s diner is open on Fridays to Sundays 11a to 4p, and is a cash only establishment.
