Where Shoushin chef Jackie Lin eats Chinese and Japanese food
Guangzhou-born sushi chef Jackie Lin moved to Canada with his family when he was 12, settling in Scarborough. “I was never a downtown guy, I’ve always lived uptown,” Lin says. “Mostly because the food is great up here.” Lin’s parents were great cooks, and he credits them for his love of food. “There’s a famous saying that the communists couldn’t do anything to the Cantonese people, because we only cared about eating,” Lin says. “Anything with its back facing up, we’ll eat it!”
Where to go north of Toronto for your Chinese food fix
The adage that Toronto’s best Chinese food is uptown and not downtown is never more true than along Highway 7 in Richmond Hill.
The thoroughfare has seen a rapid growth of restaurants and new waves of cuisine that reflect the area’s increasingly diverse and growing population. Diners are seeking out their version of “authentic” and are willing to spend money on it, from $6 bowls of noodle soups to banquet-style set dinners that can cost upwards of $1,500.
