Late night snacks and drinks that won’t break the bank, all in one of the city’s coolest ‘hoods? Expect this place to do gangbusters. 

Little Sister Indonesian Food Bar
2031 Yonge St. 

Quince Bistro owners (and if you’re old enough to remember, Stork on the Roof!) Jennifer Gittins and Michael van den Winkel entice diners again, this time with Indonesian small plates. Swoon.

Lucky Red
318 Spadina Ave. 

The Banh Mi Boys opened their new bao place on Wednesday. No doubt these sammies will be just as lusted after as their first ones.

Pearl King
291 King St. W.

Opening on King at Blue Jays Way(location, location, location), Pearl King offers “dim sum, tapas, and drinks.” Uh, you had us at dim sum.

Braised Restaurant & Bar
896 Queen St. E.

Sam Scanga, owner of Lolita’s Lust, has created a stunning space on Queen East that opens today. Focusing on local and seasonal products and “raised and braised” dishes, they’ll be open for lunch and dinner and come mid-July, weekend brunches. 

Just Falafel
831 Bay St.

This is the first location in Toronto for the UAE falafel chain.  And probably not the last.
