When Yours Truly went 100 per cent tasting menu and quit serving snacky dishes, they left a hole in my heart. So hallelujah for their new A-OK Foods, where their salt cod inari has reappeared. This is sushi rice with salt cod in fried tofu pouches.

There are also addictive KFC (Korean fried chicken) wings, super crispy in a perfectly balanced chili and garlic coating… with fab potato wedges to dip in chipotle mayo and sour cream.

And ramen. In a town gone mad for ramen, how to distinguish one from another? By the house-made ramen noodles shall ye know them, for these are rare. A-OK’s own noodles are firm and tasty, the broth lighter than usual thanks to its chicken base. And we love the soft yolk in the egg garnish, the generous slab of pork, the nori’s crackery crunch and the puckery goji berries.

As for the ambiance, make a new friend: seating is at communal picnic tables.

A-OK Foods, 930 Queen Street West, 647-352-2243
