Bent, Susur Lee’s latest endeavour on Dundas Street West, is an interesting place to go with a group of adventurous eaters. Many of the dishes are shareable, so you can try lots of different small plates. I wouldn’t say I loved, loved, loved everything about the restaurant, but it’s generally excellent and the food is fresh and fun. I especially enjoyed the beef cheek tacos (a special the evening I was there), and I couldn’t stop eating the apple salad that was served alongside the spring rolls. The room itself is a bit loud, and the service pace is leisurely.
