my favs. in T.O...list is incomplete...needs help!

Hello all!

I'm a fairly new poster on this site. Love love LOVE food of all sorts. Thought I would start by naming a few of my favourite food destinations in Toronto (in no particular order) followed by a question for my fellow food lovers:

MEXICAN - El Sol (guacamole is killer, as is the chicken mole - share a combo for better value)

THAI - Ban Vanipha (have only been twice - really authentic, very fresh)

SEAFOOD - Starfish (best oysters I've had in T.O. to date)

FALAFEL - Sarah's (it's good, cheap, and close to the U!)

INDIAN - The Host (pricey - the butter chicken and naan bread are amazing!)

PORTUGESE - Chiado (fish to die for - no joke)

JAPANESE - Edo (the one on Eg. W. - a bit pricey but very fresh!)

PUB/BAR FOOD - The Duke of York (great eats - try the stilton artichoke tip with foccacia spears...and a pint!)

VIETNAMESE - Pho Hung (on Bloor W. - recommend the dish with the rice, egg, porkchop, veg. and "quiche"...and a mango shake!)

ETHIOPIAN - Ethiopian House (great veg. platter for 2)

PIZZA - Pizza Gigi, Pizza Tournesol (both make a nice thin crust)

ROTI - Caribbean Roti Palace (boneless chicken or spinach/potato/squash - either are very tasty!)

KOREAN - Sejong (especially for BBQ meats like Kalbi), Il Bunji (for fish dishes)

VEGETARIAN (I'm not one, but enjoy the food on a reg. basis) - Bo De Duyen (the fake duck is excellent), Annapurna (3 salad sampler with honey mustard dressing and an order of bonda), Fresh on Bloor (for a really good but healthy Sat. brunch)

DESSERT - La Paloma Gelateria & Cafe (have had gelato this good only in Italy),
Athens Pastries (the loukoumades, also known as "honey drenched little balls of fried dough," are killer - get them with cinammon),
Wanda's Pie in the Sky (cherry pie almost as good as my Grandmother's)
Kim Moon Bakery (coconut buns),
Clafouti Patisserie & Cafe (best croissant in T.O...the chocolate pepper cookies are also divine)
the list goes on and on

As much as I love these all, there are some gaps. I have yet to find
3)authentic English Fish n' Chips
restaurants that have really satisfied to the same extent as those listed above.
Sending out a FOOD S.O.S.!!!
Suggestions for 1, 2 and 3?
