From Tom Thai to Marc Thuet, theres no shortage of culinary wizards in
Toronto. When looking to fill our bellies with something really tasty,
heres where we go.

10. For the best tamales, burritos, tacos, and pupusas in town we head
for the cheap and cheerful Tacos
El Asador


9. Pink terra cotta walls and a scrumptious locally-sourced menu (Chef
Cory Vitiello is in the kitchen) make the Harbord Room one of the most
inviting new restaurants in the city. 89 Harbord St., Toronto,

8. Stunning light installations at Nyood
throw a soft glow on the chic and chicer as they nibble on tempura
greens, succulent lamb tagine and pesto-smothered flatbreads. 1096 Queen
Street W., Toronto, 416-466-1888.

7. It doesnt get much better than a thin crust Terroni
pizza washed down with a glass of Nero dAvola. Three locations,

6. A perfectly roasted chicken with soft,
springy gnocchi has been a favourite meal of the year so far. We have
high hopes for Delux.
92 Ossington Ave.,Toronto,

5. Up the street Tom Thai is busy whipping up
delicious sea bream ceviche at Foxley.

4. Ravenous Sunday mornings call for piles of
pancakes, Croque Madame and Lyonnaise sausages at Thuets
Bistro & Bakery
. 609 King Street W., 416-603-2777.

3. Two stools and a plate of Jamie
legendary thyme
sprinkled fries is the perfect start to a date. Jamie Kennedy Wine Bar,
9 Church St., Toronto, 416-362-1957.

2. An apprenticeship at the Healthy Butcher
taught chef Mark Cutrara how to use the whole animal, nose to tail. Cowbell
is a carnivorous delight.

1. Mama cant always be here to make fresh
broth. On days when were feeling poorly, Pho Hungs rich and flavourful
noodle soup is the next best thing.

Toronto, 416-593-4274.
