This is the food tour for all your culinary adventurers! Take a trip around the world in one lunch at Kensington Market. You’ll sample a variety of cuisine from various cultures in the multi-cultural enclave including a stop in Chinatown. During the tour, you will learn about the area, the market and food origins. You will get to enjoy the sights, sounds and tastes of this colourful neighbourhood as you sample on sweet and savory delights hailing from Chinese and Belgian kitchens, among others! Come with an appetite, as you will have enough samples for lunch.
Plus, your experience includes a typical ‘Canadian’ dish with a custom tasty twist designed just for the tour.
At the end of the tour, leave with the famous Toronto Truffle aka Toffle™ inspired by the flavours of Toronto and Canada. The Toffle is a decadent cross between a maple butter tart and a chocolate truffle. And you can only get this on Kensington Market Food Tour!
