5 new restaurants in Little India

Toronto's Little India has seen a influx of restaurant openings in the last year or so and the stretch of Gerrard Street is suddenly flush with diverse new dining options. Recent entries to the neighbourhood deal in Himalayan and Nepalese cuisines, Hakka specialties, Malaysian Thai foods and even pub grub.

Here are five new restaurants to check out in Little India.

The Two Headed Dog
This new neighbourhood wateringhole on Gerrard is situated just west of Coxwell. Find it dishing out an array of beer-friendly foods like burgers and wings along with classic pub grub like shepherd's pie and fish and chips.

Karma's Kitchen
Tibetan momos, thukpa (noodle soups), and shaptak (stir-fried beed with chilis and onions) are all on the menu at this new Gerrard Street restaurant specializing in Himalayan and Nepalese cuisines.

Hakka Wow
This new halal restaurant at Gerrard and Ashdale is home to an expansive menu of Chinese-Indian foods including stir-fries and noodles done in Manchurian, Szechuan, and spicy garlic styles.

Thai Culture
Malaysian Thai cuisine is the niche at this new eatery originating in Oshawa and now operating a location in the heart of Toronto's Indian Baazar. Chef's specialties include a spicy chili shrimp dish, red snapper in tamarind sauce and coconut mango chicken.

Eulalie's Corner Store
Despite its name, this year-old establishment isn't the place to stock up on cigarettes and lotto tickets, but rather a quirky neighbourhood hangout. The menu bills nibbles like spaghetti squash fritters and poutine, while the selection of mains includes sandwiches, hot wings and a jerk pulled pork waffle.
