  • Maya Restaurant
    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.

  • Karaikudi Chettinad South Indian Restaurant
    Inspired by the potent flavours of southern India, the chefs at Karaikudi Chettinad Restaurant season orders of chicken, goat, and vegetables with the Chettinad region's signature spice blends. These savoury morsels are soon roasted in the kitchen's fusion-powered tandoor oven or simmered in fragrant gravy. House-made servings of cottage cheese emerge steeped in butter sauce and travel to tables during dinners or weekday lunch buffets, which feature an array of meat-filled and vegetarian-friendly items. The restaurant’s high-ceilinged dining rooms seat up to 100 guests, and feature an archway of recessed lighting as well as dark wooden columns that keep the floors from shaking hands with the ceiling. Leafy potted plants add verdant splashes of colour to the orange-hued space.

  • C J Burgers & Pizza
    Though its menu pays deference to the pizzas, burgers, and chicken wings on tap at more traditional sports bars, C J Burgers & Pizza draws its primary inspiration from its Greek owners, who stack plates with the Mediterranean-style gyros and skewered pork souvlaki of their native land. Maple Leafs fans pile into the cozy restaurant on game nights to follow their team's travails on TV screens stationed above a full-service bar that stocks top-shelf spirits. Cheering fans can seek hands they haven't high-fived yet on the heated outdoor patio, which overlooks North York's bustling downtown.

  • CASA Manila
    At Casa Manila, named the best Filipino restaurant in blogTO.com's Best of Toronto, the scents of garlic, coconut milk, and tamarind slip among rustling walls of potted plants. Grass-thatched windows and bamboo shoots hint at the fistfuls of veggies that accent braised meats, grilled pork belly, and sizzling garlic shrimp. The dishes all display the exotic style of Filipino fare, which combines Malay, Spanish, Southeast Asian, and Chinese influences. Warm-hued lights, draped in fabric, illuminate the plates, providing a cozy, tropical ambiance.

  • Alberto's Trattoria
    More than 40 years of experience guides head chef and founder Alberto Albanese as he whips up Italian lunches and dinners in his namesake trattoria. Delicate housemade pastas doused in bolognese or rosé sauces join veal piccata, lamb chops marinated in rosemary and wine, and other meat cuts and chops. Espresso and desserts of the day help round out each meal, which can be served beneath chandeliers within the restaurant or under boot-shaped clouds on the outdoor patio.

  • St Andrews Fish & Chips
    St. Andrews Fish & Chips sates the whines of hungry stomachs by way of a toothsome menu chockablock with hearty portions of traditional British Isles pub fare. Experiment with various permutations of classic chips-centric partnerships, including the maritime duo of salmon 'n' chips ($11.95 ? la carte, $14.70 for a meal with scottish bread, side, and a drink) or the landlubbing steak-and-onion pie 'n' chips ($8.95 ? la carte, $11.70 for a meal). Otherwise dormant mouths inevitably develop an overwhelming urge to dust off their tartan tongue cozies while nibbling on the Caledonian contents of St. Andrews' scottish meat pie ($5.45). Any inspired feeding frenzy can be artfully capped with a sugar-laced epilogue from the dessert menu, such as a St. Andrews deep-fried jam sandwich, an old-meets-new hybrid that combines traditional fruit preserves with space-age frying technology ($3.95).
