I love Jambalaya and have never had good Jambalaya in Toronto until last evening when I went to "Fire On The East Side" Yum-E.. Definately the best I've had in Toronto so far. They have 3 levels of heat and I ordered the hot. Let me warn you, the hot is extremely hot and may be unbearable for some. Very hearty with a nice amount of chicken, andouille & shrimp. Set me back $18 and price seemed reasonable for the quality and portion size.
As far as the restaurant goes. Place is very sleak, modern decour, candles on tables with some house music playing at a comfortable level in the background. They have a decent sized patio in the front. 25-35 hip crowd with a mix of straight and gay.
I'd definately go back and especially for the Jambalaya.
If anyone else has any good suggestions for places to eat some good Jambalaya/Cajun/Creole type foods I would love to hear it.
Here is a link to their website... http://www.fireontheeastside.ca/
Place is @ Yonge/Glocester... just south of Bloor
