A LA TURK (#26)

This North York Turk­ish spot’s spe­cialty is wood-fired pide (Turk­ish pizza) and char­coal-grilled ke­babs. In­stead of a com­pli­men­tary bread bas­ket, you are treated to “bal­loon bread,” so named be­cause of the steam that fills a hol­low puff topped with sesame seeds. At $35, the mixed ke­bab is the prici­est menu item, but there’s no filler here. And don’t for­get to grab a baklava ice cream sam­mie for dessert –– if you have the room. 3443 Yonge St.

KHO­RAK SU­PER­MAR­KET (#43)

A com­mu­nity hub and one of the best places for ca­sual Ira­nian food in the city, Kho­rak Su­per­mar­ket opened 30 years ago and has grown with the lo­cal Per­sian com­mu­nity near Yonge and Steeles. Af­ter pick­ing up gro­ceries, hun­gry shop­pers re­turn to the hot ta­ble for a meal of ke­babs, saf­fron rice, lamb shanks and stews be­fore hit­ting the bak­ery for oven-fresh bread, home­made baklava and other Per­sian sweets. 6125 Yonge St.
