Been using Uber Eats a lot are some of my favourites.

Descendant Detroit Style Pizza...amazing pizza. Get a small sausage and peppers. The small is enough for 1-2 people.

Dirty Bird Chicken and Waffles....really good fried chicken and waffles here. Get the ODB.

The ClubHouse Sandwich Shop....nice little sandwich shop. Big portions and taste great. Get the fried turkey sandwich.

OMG Oh My Gyro....nice greek takeout spot downtown. The portions are huge and it tastes really good. Get a chicken gyro or chicken gyro plate.

PG Clucks...awesome fried chicken sandwiches here. Get the classic sandwich and ask for the hot chicken.

Nom Nom Nom Poutine....probably my favourite poutine in Toronto. Big portion and the cheese curds are really good.

Pearl Morisette: French haute cuisine and wines with a prix fixe surprise menu that changes daily.
Adamson's Barbecue: American barbecue with a great selection of pies.
Richmond Station: Daily seasonal Canadian cuisine.
Nami: Traditional Japanese sushi and robata.
Miku: Japanese Kaiseki and awesome sushi (make sure you get Aburi).
Son of a Peach: Awesome wood fired oven pizzas and seasonal sides.
Darband Restaurant: Persian kebobs and rice. It's hit and miss, but you will leave full. The cardamom baklava is also delicious.
Sansotei Ramen: Just as good as anything out of Japan.
Dragon Boat Fusion Cuisine: Dim sum. Bring a Chinese speaker or be prepared to get snubbed and generally treated poorly.
Fuwa Fuwa Pancake House: Japanese soufflé pancakes.
Kay Pacha: Peruvian.
Butter Avenue: French patisserie and macarons.
Honest Weight: Good seafood.
Soma: Chocolate. Yum.
Backhouse Restaurant: Canadian cuisine with a daily seasonal menu.

PG Clucks is opening a second location. It will be near Spadina & Bloor, practically right across the street from Dirty Bird Chicken.
Both places are on your list...this should get interesting, lol...
