[Review] Tasty eats at Inspire Restaurant in Markham

Address: 144 Main St., Markham, ON
When I last visited: December 2016
Rate: 4.5, $$

Inspire Restaurant in Markham serves creative dishes from burgers, tacos, and chicken and waffles with an Asian twist. Owned by a young and cool chef that is passionate about creating dishes that tastes as good as it looks, where each dish is plated with finesse.  Come try out the dishes and let the food speak for itself.

The post is based on what I have ordered and tasted in the last few visits. During each visit, the food took a long time (20 minutes or so) to initially come out but the food made it worth the visit! The portions were generous for the mains, the service was attentive, and the food was an incredibly delicious.

Here are my top recommendations:

Panko Eggscobar ($10) Ontario Pork, Mashed Devilled Egg , Bacon , Tobiko , Soy Mayo, and Nori.

This was a wicked scotch egg with the works!

Waff Out Loud ($25)-Soy Marinated Grade Prime Strip Steak, Crisp Chicken, Ginger Maple, Spicy Berry Compote, Cheese Blend, and Homemade Waffle.
Who needs chicken and waffles, when you have crispy chicken AND tender medium rare steak on waffles. Talk about meat sweats. This dish is filling and outstanding!
Cry Me a River ($35)-Shrimps, Mussels, Octopus, Salmon, Uni, Scallops, Extra Butter Ginger Coconut, Buttered Toast, and Potato Cube.
I love uni very much, but the star of this dish was the buttery sauce!
Simply short rubs with 2 potatoes  ($25)-Beef Short Ribs, Blue Cheese Shitake Demi, Cauliflower Truffle Mash, and Potato Chips.
Awesome combination of flavours! Also, who doesn’t love crispy potato chips?

Capt’n Crunch banana ice cream sandwich ($12)- Banana Bread Waffles, Banana Cream, Peanut Butter Fudge Ice-Cream, and Capt’n Crunch Cereal.
This can feed 4-6 people easily!


A hip Markham restaurant doing things right with creative ingredients and combinations for the dishes at reasonable portions. Plus, it is a family friendly restaurant. Make sure to make reservations.
