Born in Guatemala, Luis Carpio earned his stripes as a short-order cook in San Francisco, then journeyed north to Canada in 1999 to open Maya Restaurant—a move that, ironically, signaled a return to his Central American roots. "I try to cook similar to back home, try to use our own spices and try to be simple," he told the Toronto Star, which praised the "perfectly cooked chicken," "flavourful refried black beans," and "nicely browned and caramelized" plantain he dishes up.
The concise menu mixes traditional dishes from across Central America, from seafood platters, soups, and ceviche to pork and chicken cooked with herbs not often seen this far north. On weekends, the breakfast menu piles plates with hearty Latin breakfasts, all accompanied by steaming cups of coffee to awaken taste buds and steam-press rumpled tongues.
