Had the pleasure today to finally read this years NOW Best of Toronto issue.
It amazes me that the readers seem to always choose the chains (Mandarin, Mr. Greek, etc..) as the best in Chinese, Greek, etc..
With all the superior choices I am always surprised by this list. I thought NOW catered to the supposedly "world class" urban Torontonian. This is a list that would make both chowhounders and foodies cry.
I guess the good side of this is that all the outsiders will continue to go to these "best" places and leave the truly best for those that can appreciate them!
I wonder if there was ever a CHOWHOUNDERS BEST OF TORONTO LIST? and how that would differ. Best Seafood would not be Red Lobster I bet!
