12 Victoria restaurants that TikTok influenced us to try out

It’s 2022: if you’re not addicted to TikTok, are you even on social media?

The video-sharing app is perfect for us foodies—it’s absolutely full of unique recipe videos, helpful cooking hacks, and tutorials. But our favourite TikToks are the videos highlighting local restaurants.  

It’s so easy to kill too much time on the app, but we promise these videos will inspire you to put down your phone and head out to these local gems. Check out the Victoria recommendations we found on TikTok that are definitely worth visiting.
