10 new restaurants that opened in Toronto last month

New restaurants in Toronto are kicking off the new year right. Most recent arrivals include a new Jamaican patty spot that also serves ice cream, and North America's first location of a Japanese ramen brand that deals in delicious tori paitan. 

Here are new restaurants in Toronto that opened in January.

Pupusas To Go

There's a new pupuseria in town. This takeout spot for Salvadoran corncakes grills up pupusas stuffed with cheese and beans. You can also get pizza-sized pupusas in a box, plus horchata on the side.

Midori Ramen

Marking North America's first location of this popular ramen chain is this shop by Queen and Spadina. Midori specializes in chicken broth and a cauliflower option that promises delicious alternatives to the usual pork.

Sof Sof Grill

Kosher Israeli classics sold out quickly at this Thornhill restaurant's inaugural weekend. Middle Eastern eats include hummus, falafel, sabich with amba sauce and beef shawarma.

Moon Palace

The Atrium at Yonge and Dundas has a new restaurant for Chinese takeout. Moon Palace has all your Cantonese cuisine cravings covered, albeit on the pricier end, from dim sum to stir-fry.

Patty Cake and Ice Cream

This new takeout spot near Eglinton and Midland has you covered for every meal. There are patties with jerk beef, chicken, and curry goat, or get them stuffed with coleslaw and plantain. They also do cakes and ice cream, plus it's all halal.


Dundas West has a neighbourhood French cafe for sandwiches filled with nicoise salad or beef tongue stroganoff. There'll be more French mains down the road to finish off before a slice of Basque cheesecake.
