Discovering restaurants on your very own

Howdy,

You guys sure know your pizza, Chinese all-you-can-eat, sushi buffets, Chinese, pizza, bistro, Chinese, Italian, pizza, fish & chips. I've gotten some great tips, and for that I'm truly appreciative. (I didn't realize there were so many so-called hidden gems in the suburbs!)

Okay, but there MUST be some other places. I've found several obscure and pretty good restaurants, just by driving around (I do NOT rely on Now or Toronto Life or the newspapers to provide this information) - Uzbek, Burmese, Ecuadorean, Turkish (people think Anatolia is the only Turkish restaurant in Toronto, because that's the only one that's been written up), etc.

How do you find your "own" restaurants around Toronto? Do you seek info from people of various ethnic/ethnic backgrounds? Do you walk/cycle/drive around in various neighbourhoods on a quest for the unusual?
