Whole sea bream ceviche (I finished the fish by myself - along with another side dish, still, pretty proud of it hahaha) - Honestly, not a fan of the Black Hoof but this citric dish surprises me :) 
" The whole-fish ceviche is a stunner: cubes of sea bream spiked with four kinds of citrus, lubricated with ripe avocado, topped with grass-thin fried leeks and served atop the bream’s fried carcass. Don’t be bashful about digging along the backbone for the last morsels." - En Route (Air Canada), Nov 2013
Bar Isabel, Toronto
Seared scallops, cauliflower cream, pancetta, hen of the woods, wood sorrel 
Amazing food. One of my best experience in Toronto, their customer service is incredible as well. Maybe that’s why I put up with the fact that the water was charged.

A more worthy dish to try: Rack of Lamb Thailandaise with banana fritter, chili mint, tomato lentil-cumin stew, coconut carrot cardamom chutney. Delicious, but (sigh)…should not have been here to try a meal that costs me another month of eating instant noodles.
