Like Toronto, Taiwan is a cultural melting pot, an island nation where Japanese, Fujian, and mainland Chinese foods collide into nuanced deliciousness. This chic, lo-fi Cabbagetown room isn’t concerned with authenticity. Owner Trevor Lui likes to say, “When Taipei meets Toronto, Kanpai happens." Taiwanese-spiced fried chicken, for instance, is fried on the bone because Lui thinks the American-style fried bird is juicier (and just better) than the pounded poultry filet that’s popular in Taiwan. Exceptional cocktails with cheeky names go down easy.
