South Granville and cheap eats don’t typically go hand in hand, but the lunch special at Lin ($7.99, 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.) gives you the choice of 18 different meat, seafood, and vegetarian dishes, including crowd-fave ginger beef (the tangled shards pack a belly-warming heat) and chef specials like honey prawn (the deep-fried critters swim in a citrusy, slightly creamy sauce). You’d be a dang fool to miss out on an order of the city’s best xiao long bao (Shanghainese soup dumplings)Ñfive bucks gets you six thin-skinned beauties encasing a lightly spiced ground-pork lozenge and a squirt of deeply flavoured, piping-hot broth.
