Madame Marie’s Weekly Roundup: Toronto’s Best Takeout, Delivery and Dining During COVID-19 – May 21, 2021

1133 Yonge Street

Midtown’s Sash exudes sophistication—yes, even in takeout form—that you could only expect from its namesake chef and co-owner, Sash Simpson. Menu offerings are very similar to what you’d might expect if you were dining at one of the restaurant’s white linen-clad tables, and everything is expertly prepared with the same finesse and attention to detail, from the crave-worthy truffle fries to the pearly white seared diver scallops. You’ll see plenty of fresh seafood on the menu: Nova Scotia lobster, east coast oysters, dover sole, black sea bass, and more. However, there’s something to satisfy everybody’s palates: crispy duck, Madras lamb chops with biryani rice, fresh pasta, chicken supreme, and striploin. If you’re craving some stellar takeout, Sash should be high on your list. Open for takeout Thursday to Saturday.

52 Wellington Street East

With a plethora of Thai restaurants in the city, Torontonians are often faced with a predicament: which one to choose? Sukhothai, one of Toronto’s Thai institutions, has several locations across the city. While each location has a different vibe, they all offer flavourful Thai classics, such as creamy coconut curries, refreshing mango salads, and sweet Pad Thai—all punctuated with the right amount of heat. Try the fragrant khao soi and pad gra prow, and it’ll make you question going back to any other Thai restaurant ever again. Pick up and delivery available during the stay-at-home order.

Playa Cabana Taqueria

This Mexican restaurant chain has been expanding across Toronto since it opened in 2011—spreading love one taco at a time. Situated at Yonge and St. Clair, Taqueira is the newest addition to Playa Cabana’s expanding empire. Menu favourites include: al carbon tacos, pollo tinga, skirt steak and shrimp burritos, and some of the most authentic guacamole in the city. One thing’s for certain: whatever you order will be a fiesta in your mouth. Pick up and delivery available during the stay-at-home order.
