10 new restaurants that opened in Toronto last month

New restaurants in Toronto include a Korean restaurant inside a shipping container and an underground takeout counter for massive Vietnamese banh mi. Plus, the same hospitality group behind some of the city's fanciest plant-based restaurants just opened up a spot for prix fixe. 

Here are new restaurants in Toronto that opened in December.

Banh Haus

After months of suspense, this new Vietnamese joint has finally opened its doors to Huron Square. The same family behind Avenue Road's alterations shop Dinh Tailor is serving deep fried banh tieu and braised beef banh mi with sides of broth for dunking.

Madras Kaapi

South Indian filtered coffee and Madras masala egg toast has landed in Little Italy. This vibrant spot has been serving their frothy kaapi, a blend of South Indian coffee beans and chicory root, since early December.

Carne Cartel

The folks behind Etobicoke's halal BBQ spot Chainsmoker have opened a spot for barbeque and Filipino eats. Menu items include BBQ brisket tacos and chicken inasal sammies.

DAM Sandwiches

Soft opening just a few days before Christmas is this new sandwich spot on Oakwood Avenue. The only things on the menu are a rotating and limited list of sandwiches like brisket and Korean BLT with corn bread and Corn Pops.

SuLee Dosirak

This sibling-run kimchi business only launched this spring, but Mike Won and Su Jin Won have already expanded with a shipping container store. SuLee Dosirak is serving braised meats, banchan and, of course, kimchi out of Market 707.


Wexford has a new takeout spot pumping out Indian street eats. eaTO has been serving up boxes of chaat, kutchi dabeli and bada vada pavs on Lawrence East since its soft opening December 15.

Soya Mandarin Kitchen

Longtime Baldwin tenant Kon-nichi-wa has officially been replaced. This new concept, from the same folks behind Winding Road restaurant down the street, quietly opened in its place with a menu of Peking duck, dim sum and stir-fry.
