Someone had recommended the corn pie and it was excellent. Very large and great to share. We ordered a few small chicken empanadas to try as well. All good! Small place with nice outdoor seating too. Cash or debit only. The prices are spot on....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
