The top 5 new Turkish restaurants in Toronto

New Turkish restaurants in Toronto make jaws drop with gigantic meat platters, mouths water with delicious mezes, and imaginations wander with recipes from the Mediterranean. Plus, you can't go wrong with even more places to grab a Turkish coffee or tea.

Here are my picks for the top new Turkish restaurants in Toronto.

This spot near Runnymede station that’s also a design store serves massive platters of grilled meats.

Humongous meat platters are the order of the day at this restaurant at Keele and Wilson that also does elaborate Turkish breakfasts.
