Fried chicken and doughnuts, the ultimate savoury-sweet-trashy combo, have come to Leslieville courtesy of the team behind the midtown lunch stop Delica. The tiny takeout shop is a pocket of nostalgia, with cheery staff sporting pointed caps and bow ties. The free-run chicken is brined and double-deep-fried until tender and golden. The doughnut menu lists seven flavours, such as eye-poppingly citrusy mango-yuzu and white peach–maple. The cakey rings make Timmies treats seem like sad doughnut simulacra. There are only a few seats, so it’s best to hit the nearby park for a retro picnic.
