One of the wonderful things about Toronto is the many options for West Indian food. Deciding which spot has the best food is still up for debate, but best presentation is hands down at Diner’s Corner (3 Gloucester Street, just east of Yonge).

The small oxtail dinner is displayed on a white square plate and includes several dishes: tender oxtail with plenty of sauce, requisite rice and peas, a colourful salad and a festival (fried dumpling) on the side (all for $7, large is $9).

The restaurant’s ambiance is cozy and intimate, and while the tables feature linen tablecloths, the prices are incredibly reasonable. Plus, if you’re ever looking to get plastered, the rum punch tastes like a “quadruple.” I suspect they pour in a shot of fruit punch and fill the rest of the glass with rum. (Note: the fruit punch alone is a highly recommended non-alcoholic beverage.)
