You don't have to go to a seafood specialty spot to get excellent treats from the sea. We've trawled a couple of first-rate eateries and found superb fish dishes on their wide-ranging menus.
¡CARAMBA! (394 Pacific, at Dundas West, 416-604-4844) One of Toronto's dreariest nabes comes to life with this superb Peruvian spot. Best: Potpourri -- skewers of grilled chicken breast and beef heart alongside grilled shrimp, sauteed calamari, tripe strips and turbot fillet served with cold sliced spuds; cool things down with dessert Empanadas De Platano, sweet deep-fried plantains stuffed with soothing rice-pudding puree. Complete dinners for $30 per person ($12 at lunch or brunch), including all taxes, tip and a glass of wine. Open Tuesday to Saturday 11:30 am to 11 pm, Sunday 10 am to 10 pm. Closed Monday. Fully licensed. Access: barrier-free, washrooms in basement. Rating: NNN
