Four days in Toronto
- Bill Greenberg
We are going to Toronto for four days in June.
I've been reading about the Portuguese restaurants: Chiado, Ramboia and Amadeus. Apart from what I understand to be Chiado's more upscale experience, does anyone have any suggestions.
I would also be happy to hear from anyone regarding ethnic dining experiences that emphasize authenticity, though price is not a great concern: Italian, Chinese and Japanese are of interest.
Thanks in advance.
Japanese -- Yamato in Yorkville (great sushi... teppanyaki is ok but i like their sushi the best, that is their strength). or if you want to venture out further, Kaji is the best of the best in Toronto. Hiro also has a good reputation, but they are known more for their style in which the chef just brings you food to your table (you don't order specifically)... the sushi at Hiro wasn't great when i went. and i'm from vancouver so i know my sushi.
Chinese -- well in downtown there really isn't that much that's remarkable... you could try dimsum at Dynasty which is on Bloor near Yorkville. in terms of an evening meal... ?!?!
Italian -- i keep hearing the name Romagnia Mia again and again so there must be something great about it.
have fun and good luck on your food adventures.
My suggestion would be Mata Hari on Baldwin St. Delicious Malaysian food with good service and nice atmosphere.
