The once "underrated, behind the scenes, hidden spot" in Kensington market is now too popular for its size. We had a long line when we recently went and the drinks were overpriced. Cool outdoor area but it was a lot cooler when it was less...More

Toronto's main Chinatown has the honor of being the
largest in North America. Gaping down across Dundas
Street West and Spadina Avenue, the area is a
wonderful medley of shops and restaurants, busy signs
and bright red gates, a destination for foodie fun.
Chinatown's streets are always bustling, packed with
people and outdoor stalls hawking fresh produce and
products. The restaurants and authentic marketplaces
