Toronto Food Tour

silverfyre | Oct 6, 2008 03:40 PM

Hey Tdot peoples. I need a favor. My friends and I are going on a road trip to Toronto. I promised them exquisite food even though I really don't know where to find it, I just adore TO! I had the idea of trying the food of each of our ethnicities - Jamaican, Chilean/Jewish, Polish/Russian, Chinese and Korean. What do you think of these places and do you have better suggestions? Mostly looking for cheaper authentic hole in the wall stuff

Jamaican - Planet Crystal, Albert's, Randy's or Ackee Tree.
Chilean - Jumbo Empanadas
Polish - Cafe Polonez
Korean - Sejong, Bun Ji, Sariwon or Yummy BBQ (prefer a place in Koreatown)
Chinese - Wah Too Seafood Restaurant ( Once a favorite late night haunt for me. Prefer a place in Chinatown and not fancy)

Is there any Jewish Canadian food that can't be passed up?

I'm also a huge fan of Shawarma and Falafel so I want a good place for that. I hear Lawrence West is the place to go, but if I can't make it out there I'd appreciate a suggestion downtown. Pickled turnips are a must.

I'm also looking for suggestions in Greek Town, Little Portugal and Little India ( or any good Indian resto.) Any other superb ethnic recommendations are welcome, especially if spicy . mmm

Is Memphis Style BBQ any good?

For our big splurge I'm going to try get reservations at Scaramouche, Canoe or North 44. Are those good choices? And is 360 at all comparable to these foodwise or just overpriced and touristy?

Thanks in advance. I can't wait to have Tim Horton's mochas again. Its been too long.
