2. Monday is the easiest night on the wallet at WVRST with all Ontario beer priced at $5/pint. Normally, the place is a bit pricy.
3. If you’re going to have a sausage, try the kangaroo. It’s the best one on the menu.
Before I get to food, I have to mention that WVRST has one of the absolute best beer selections that we have found in Toronto. With local classics like the Muskoka, as well as past favorites of mine from Montreal like the Dieu Du Ciel, topped off with the oldest brand of beer in the world, Weihenstephaner (best damn beer of all time). Although 6 out of 7 nights you’ll be paying a relatively hefty price for any of the beers on tap, on Monday WVRST serves up $5 pints for all Ontario craft brews. Not a bad deal considering the Ontario beers that they have on tap are the best the province has to offer. That’s saying a lot.
A lot of Torontonians that I know will recommend that anyone visiting the city give the street meat a try. I’ve tried it, I’m not from Toronto, and I’ve got to be honest, I can’t see what the big deal is. I say spend a couple of extra dollars and give the sausages at WVRST a shot. With options like wild boar, rabbit, and kangaroo you’re bound to find something here that blows your mind faster than the meningitis you’d contract from one of the street vendors. Although I’m usually not the biggest fan of fries, the “Dirty Duck Fat” fries at WVRST are out of this world. Smothered in a spicy curry sauce and, as the name would suggest, fried in duck fat, these are some ridiculously tasty french fries.

WVRST is not like most restaurants in Toronto, or bars for that matter. On a busy night, this spot is loud and rowdy, but definitely not a dive. The long connected tables which seat multiple parties side by side, in addition to the liters of Weihenstephaner, are conducive to getting rowdy with strangers like it’s first year University. WVRST is not cheap, and definitely not a dive but serves up some good times along with it’s giant mugs and wild game sausages.
