The top 10 new restaurant openings in Toronto for January

New restaurants in Toronto have brought us all kinds of exciting new experiences. Try Japanese and Burmese cuisine like you've never had before, or grab some wine or tequila at one of the city's newest snack bars.

Here are the my picks for the top new restaurants that opened in Toronto last month.

Aburi Hana

This new Japanese restaurant might be Yorkville's fanciest yet, featuring Kyo-Kaiseki cuisine, ceremonial anticipatory service, private dining rooms and traditional floral arrangements.

Anejo

This Calgary Mexican restaurant opened its first Toronto location where they've replaced beer with tequila in the old Bier Markt space on King West.

The Junction just became home to this casual Vietnamese food restaurant serving banh mi, pho and rice paper rolls.

Burmese cuisine can now be found in Toronto at this restaurant in Bayview Village mall where curries, noodles, falafel and tempura come together on one menu.

Comfort yourself at this newly opened Upper Beaches restaurant doing happy hour, brunch and bistro fare.
