Eating Around Toronto

One of the things that surprises me about Toronto, and I'm not sure why, is the variety of food found here. The other night, my coworker wanted to go to a particular Jamaican restaurant. We must have passed 2 or 3 before arriving at Irie Food Joint. I don't even know of 1 Jamaican place in SF, much less more than that.

Irie was fantastic. Great drinks, delicious roti and some of the best plantains I have ever eaten. When we first walked in, the manager (owner?) asked if we would like menus. I responded, "That would be helpful." After it was out of my mouth I realized how snotty that sounded, but he just laughed and said, "I like you already." We got to sit outside on the patio, it was such a lovely night that we didn't need the heaters or jackets. I love that about Toronto!
