best one dish this year that you long to return for

Rather than just a restaurant,what is the most memorable single plate that you have eaten in T.O this year?
App. main, or dessert, doesn't matter.
The meal that I still think about was at Bymark
Fresh black cod, served with perfect little circles of leeks, and I think, heart of palm
One bite crunchy, and the other soft.
There were two crab dumplings perfectly placed on the plate, and the seasoning and lightness of the sauce was exceptional,, as it never masked the flavour of the fish.
It is a recipe that I would love to own.

  1. Nothing fancy for me but I have become addicted to Happy Seven's lunchtime spicy salt shrimp special. This is the whole shrimp from feelers to tail. Crunchy deliciousness. The first couple of times the waitress narrowed her eyes and warned me, "Whole shrimp. Head on." Now I get a courteous smile and "Shrimp?" Such a tasty dish for 3.99, with the bonus of being a nice source of roughage and a calcium supplement? I'm there!

    1. I am afraid I am too predictable, but...

      Oysters at Starfish
      and a beautiful medium-rare filet at Harbour 60 (with a lovely side of their cheese, olive, hot pepper tray)

      1. The 'Sliced leg of pork in a spicy cilantro garlicky sauce' from Northern Dumpling Kitchen in Times Square, Hwy#7. Had it 3 times the past week and still yearning for more!!

              Weezie's steak tartar

              Ok, that's two. I'm forgetting one, I'm sure, but these jumped out.
