Food Tour, Toronto Chinatown with A Food Writer/Chef

This neighborhood is a beehive of activity with its many shops, cheap housewares, fruit and vegetable stall, traditional Chinese herbal medicine dispensaries, and of course, tons of great food. It can be a pretty intimidating place for those who are unfamiliar with the food and customs of the culture.

Let our knowledgeable guide lead the way through a tutored tasting that begins with a traditional Chinese Bakery and will include Vietnamese, Cantonese, Szechwan, Thai, Mandarin, Shanghai, and Beijing delicacies. No Chinatown Tour would be complete without an authentic Hong Kong Dim Sum experience but don’t worry, we got you covered.

Along the way, you will learn the history and culture of the community, one woman’s fight to keep the community from being demolished, as well as tidbits of etiquette and ancient customs. So “chī hǎo hē hǎo” 吃好喝好 which literally translates to “eat well and drink”!

We hope to see you soon!
