Splurge at the King Eddie’s Victoria’s Restaurant, where Charles Ching (far left), Hitesh Kalra (above left) and Richard Pulver prep a spectacular spread.
Sometimes quantity equals quality. Down by the Space Needle, Subcontinental supper club Dhaba (309 King West, at John, 416-740-6622, dhaba.ca) expands its tasty weekday buffet with the addition of Indo omelettes and DIY dosa stations, alongside the usual subzi ($12.95 per person Saturday and Sunday from 11 am). Those with more genteel tastes give thumbs-up to the extravagant spread at the King Edward Hotel (37 King East, at Victoria, 416-863-9700), especially the beef Wellington and over-the-top desserts ($49 Sunday from 11 am).
More modest pockets head to Hot House Café (35 Church, at Wellington, 416-366-7800, hothousecafe.com) for its cheesy lasagna and hips of beef ($18.95 Sunday from 9:30 am). But if meat's not your thing, check out Simba Grill (375 Donlands, at O'Connor, 416-429-6057, simbagrill.ca) for the unlimited Gujrati-style vegetarian thali ($10 Sunday from 1 pm) or M & B Yummy (1263 Queen West, at Brock, 416-516-2798, mbyummy.com) for massive all-inclusive Ethiopian veggie platters ($12 Sunday from 11 am).
