10 new fried chicken sandwiches in Toronto you need to try at least once

New fried chicken sandwiches in Toronto seem to be on everyone's menu these days. These spots may have just opened, but they've already perfected the humble art of fried bird on a bun, and it's the takeout favourite's time to shine right now.

Here are my picks for the top new fried chicken sandwiches in Toronto.

Tokyo Sando & Chicken

This virtual ghost kitchen concept from the Kinka family (known for Kinton Ramen) is delivering karaage sandwiches topped with house hot sauce or Japanese mustard mayo.

The Bullger

This Danforth restaurant serves sandwiches packed with four fried chicken strips, beef bacon, cheddar cheese, lettuce, tomato and chipotle aioli. They also do Buffalo chicken sandwiches.

Happy Burger

This Little Italy takeout window makes a Happy Chicken sandwich with a juicy, crispy fried chicken breast, topped with lettuce, pickle, cheese and "happy sauce," all on a potato bun.

Matt's Burger Lab

Not just one but three chicken sandwiches are on the menu at this Parkdale restaurant including the Dead Magnet with two fried chicken thighs, cheese and chipotle sauce, and the Back to the Future with three fried chicken thighs and Cajun mayo.

Ding-a-Wing

A buttermilk fried chicken thigh dusted with cayenne salt or honey dill and topped with slaw and pickles goes on a Martin's potato bun for the sandwich from this Roncesvalles takeout window.

The Commoner Bar Room

The Southern chicken sandwich from this new Little Italy bar offers a restaurant-worthy take on the dish with a breaded thigh, pickled jalapeno, cabbage slaw and red onion.
