Fresh Off the Boat Toronto, Ontario, Canada

Fresh Off the Boat lobster rolls and soft shell crab sandwiches will make you forget you're in Toronto.

In a claw-t0-claw competition, both the soft shell crab and lobster rolls are winners.  Soft shell crab ($16) comes sandwiched in a gorgeous brioche bun shell with tomato and lettuce. (Say yes to the hot sauce.) Maine-style lobster roll ($14) is blessed with just the right balance of salty chunks and dressing on a perfect, buttered, toasted bun. Tiny containers of broccoli slaw side well with both. Keep your expectations low around the sometimes-soggy fries. Grilled fish ($14-15) and kimchi catfish po’ boys ($12) round out the seaworthy menu.

Fresh Off the Boat is primarily a takeout joint, though it’s best to eat these delicacies as quickly as possible (Mine get devoured before leaving the Queen West neighbourhood). Vie for 2 eat-in tables or 5 stools. Owner Quinten is friendly and generous, gifting a slice of key lime pie when I hesitate over ordering dessert ($5). It’s perfect, as expected. Mediocre seafood restaurants nearby are twenty thousand leagues behind FOB.
