Charcoal Restaurants of Ontario.

I would love to see a list of restaurants in Ontario that use charcoal/wood to cook their food. If this has been covered please post a link for me. Some that come to mind...

Last time I was in Barberian's Steakhouse and Tavern they use charcoal to cook my steak.

Eigensinn Farm. I've had roast pork from their outdoor wood burning oven.

Any others that you can think of would be appreciated

    1. Back Alley BBQ in Kensington. Neapolitan pizza from a wood burning oven.

      1. I know King's Park Souvlaki Place at Pape and Mortimer do charcoal. They also have an outdoor rotisserie as well.

              I walked by there yesterday and saw that Sejong has closed down.

                Go to Seoul House then on Dufferin near Orfus Rd for Korean BBQ w/ charcoals.

                  Yeah Sejong is definitely papered up.

                  Seoul House's second location also uses charcoal, at Yonge & Steeles. Keep in mind it's a combination of charcoal and gas on the grill.

                  1. re: aser

                    First time I went they kept the gas on all the time, the second time they turned off the gas after the coals were hot enough. Probably better w/ just the coals doing the cooking.

                  Miga (korean bbq) in Mississauga also has charcoal.
                  There's a Miga on Bloor in K-town now but I haven't been there.
