#25 CHURRASQUIERA MARTINS This gem delivers fully on flavour. Chouriço sausage arrives tableside (in flames); there’s grilled and salted cod (a.k.a. bacalhau); plus that barbecued chicken (juicy inside, piri piri outside). Make a reso on the weekend — it’s grilled octopus time. 605 Rogers Rd., #1
#37 MATTACHIONI Perfectly blistered pizza crust, fresh tomato sauce and gooey mozza flagged with fresh basil? For only $10, three days a week? Somehow the Junction triangle has been gifted the dreamiest bodega. It’s the work of a former Terroni kid, David Mattachioni, who has taken his knowledge and run with it. There’s also panini (mortadella stuffed in house focaccia), dolce for sweet and, in true bodega style, groceries. 1617 Dupont St.
