#52. Richard’s Hintonburg Kitchen spice-dusted potato wedges  Layers of spice and exotic flavour are the name of the game at chef Nigro’s globe-trotting takeout food shop. The essence of his poetic style is expressed in a simple but unforgettable side dish: spice-dusted potato wedges with a deliriously good dip made from yogourt cheese mixed with Richard’s own Indian chutney. $4. Richard’s Hintonburg Kitchen, 1202 Wellington St. W., 613-422-2680. ~Shawna Wagman
