Interesting spots

I'm going to be in Toronto for the next couple of months on business. I'm from New york, so have a bit of everything here. I've done all the basics of most cuisines ( not that strong in Africa). I'm looking for interesting spots to eat. By interesting, I mean unusual ingredients simply and well prepared. I much preferred a $5 plate of minced pork steamed with dry squid to the 50 Euro roast chicken that the French president took Bill Clinton to. Or ingredients served in ways I'm not familir with. I recently had manchego cheese served with honey and nuts and a glass of port that was a perfect end to a nice Spanish dinner. Unusual game is always good. I'm Chinese, so I have a slight bias in that direction. Are there any places that pull the noodles for soup noodles for you like in streetside Shanghai or Fukien? Are there any Toysan places? I'm also looking for a good beef pancake ( A Fukien thing, kind of like a scallion pancake stuffed with beef, scallions, cilantro, etc.). Also, if anyone wants a partner in exploring, drop me a line. I find that on these food quests, the more the merrier.
