Once upon a time, honestly not too long ago, there was a princess-to-be in pair of Rag & Bone pyjama pants teaching FLARE, Chatelaine’s sister publication, how to make her famous apple butter toast. And you can bet we’re still dining out on that story.Has Meghan Markle’s Father Been Uninvited From The Royal Wedding?
We’re *also* still dining out at most of Meghan Markle’s favourite restaurants in Toronto and Montreal. Before the self-described foodie scrubbed all traces of her social media presence — on Instagram, Twitter and her now-defunct food and lifestyle destination site The Tig — we screen-grabbed every time she snapped a photo at several notable hot spots when she was living in the Annex and filming Suits.
A few things stand out: for starters, Markle LOVES Flock Rotisserie + Greens (it might have something to do who she dated shortly before Prince Harry, or the more obvious fact that she’s a big fan of roast chicken), but she’s also partial to the quinoa-battered onion rings at Fresh. She can’t resist a sandwich piled high with toppings (same), and rather than trying out whatever new, hot resto just opened up, it looks like she’s pretty loyal to just a handful of places. (The latter makes her all the more endearing, to be quite frank.)
If you, too, fancy yourself a bit of foodie, or just like scrolling through some royally good food pics, consider this your unofficial guide to a food crawl fit for royalty.
Triple scoops at Toronto’s My Favourite Ice Cream Shop
My Favourite Ice Cream Shop has been a family-favourite fixture on Macpherson Avenue for nearly 25 years. Owner Indra Patel opens the parlour’s doors in early spring and closes the cash-only shop around Halloween, just when it starts to get a little too cold for a cone. By the looks of it, Markle’s enjoying a patriotic triple scoop for the Fourth of July with a Blue Bubblegum base—likely one of the 30 flavours that Patel sources each year, which range from your average cookie-dough classic to more creative blends like kiwi and pear ginger.
