Vacation recommendations for Toronto, please

Hi. My family (2 kids, 12 and 6) will be visiting Toronto soon. We love to eat good food but are on somewhat of a budget. Also, we have a soy allergy, three of us won't eat seafood, and one cannot eat very spicy food while another craves it. So it is fun planning dinner at home let alone away. Things we all agree on are pizza, Spanish chorizo, kielbasa, and dessert! We love Thai, especially Northern Thai but need assurances that there are no soy products used. It's surprising that even some Mexican (although not authentic) has soy sauce! We want to stay away from chains and prefer to try things we can't get at home. Kids' menus are NOT a requirement. My kids preferred the Food and Wine Festival (not the wine, of course) at Epcot over Magic Kingdom in Disney World.

That said, I found the following restaurants that might be interesting. I would love some input and some other suggestions. I know we will only be there for 5 days but it will be nice to have options depending on mood and location. We will be staying at Bond Place hotel and will probably do the ROM or AGO, OSC, Royal Botanical Gardens, Fort York, the Islands. THANKS!!
