The top 5 new restaurants in Scarborough

New restaurants in Scarborough opened in 2020 under less than ideal circumstances, but they're making their mark anyway with comfort takeaway foods, BBQ, and omakase eats-turned-bento boxes to go. 

Here are my picks for the top new restaurants in Scarborough.

Sam's Ribs & Hot Chicken

Nashville-style means big and deep fried, so expect nothing less of this BBQ spot serving up halal fried chicken sandwiches and full racks of beef ribs. Expect grilled cheese, hot chili poppers, corn bread, coleslaw, and all the usual Southern favourites. 

Mark's Pizzas

Neighbourhood pizza purveyor Mark Alousis has opened his own brick and mortar on Old Kingston Road. Order online to arrange a pick up of one of these thin crust, New York-style pies made with organic flour and Ezzo pepperoni. Pizza selection rotates weekly.
