Seeking Culinary Adventure in Toronto

alastairc | Nov 30, 2009 12:46 PM

My wife and I love to immerse ourselves in foreign cultures. We've lived in Tokyo & New York and, well, we've been spoiled with countless unforgettable culinary experiences abroad. Now, we have an infant and we're (somewhat) tied down in Canada.

In Toronto, we loved the dining experience at The Sultan's Tent - you really get a flavour for Morocco. Alas, I have not been able to find another restaurant in Toronto that offers such a complete sensory experience. I would LOVE any suggestions!

So, what are we looking for? The main quality is that we would like to feel transported out of Toronto for ... two or three hours. Honestly, the food doesn't have to be scrumptions; it should be authentic.

One last thing: my wife's birthday is Dec 4th and I was hoping to find something before then. Currently, I'm weighing the Ethiopian restaurant Zagol on Bloor. I love the fact that we can eat with our hands (with flatbread) but I'm disappointed that customers don't sit on the floor. I would also love to treat her to a meal at Eigensinn Farm (2 hrs from Toronto) but $275 a plate is a bit out of my price range.

Any and all suggestions are greatly appreciated!
