Scarborough and East Chinatown joints take an unusual backseat to west Chinatown but a few are feeding us outside the downtown core.
Here are the best Chinese restaurants in Toronto.
Unfettered seafood extravaganzas border on ludicrous at Fishman but that’s mostly the point at this Scarborough landmark. Size absolutely matters here—you’ll need a team and a willing wallet to help devour jumbo towers of king crab and HK-style fried lobsters by the pound.
Another pitstop for your night out, Hong Shing’s been kicking it by St. Patrick station since the 90s. Unlike other restaurants that have been around that long, Hong Shing has upgraded with the times while preserving staples like E-fu noodles and General Tao chicken combos.
There are a few restaurants claiming the crown for dumpling-making, but don’t get it confused—the spot in Scarboro Village Mall is the only Dumpling King with rights to the title. Head to Midland Avenue for dumplings with multi-coloured skins. After more than 20 years they now have a Markham location too.
