Charcoal Restaurants of Ontario.

mactoo Jul 24, 2009 11:50 AM

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.
Barberian's Steakhouse and Tavern
7 Elm Street

Webers cooks their burgers and dogs with charcoal
Webers on Highway 11

Orlando 2 For 1 Jerk Chicken. It has been a long time since I have been in but they cook chicken over charcoal
1828 ST CLAIR AVE W, Toronto

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

Any others that you can think of would be appreciated

            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.

              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.

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