Tasty Tours has been hosting food tours in Kensington Market for 10 years and the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the neighbourhood is the worst we’ve seen. But Kensington Market, like it’s immigrant heritage, is full of survivors. Find out what makes Kensington so special, and let’s support them together! International travel may not be so easy these days, but still we’ll travel:
1. Around the world, locally – we’ll sample a variety of ethnic eats in the multi-cultural enclave of Kensington Market, including a stop in Chinatown. In between bites, feast your eyes on the mom-and-pop businesses, brightly coloured graffiti murals and gourmet food shops that lure locals and visitors alike. Come with an appetite, as you’ll have enough samples for lunch!
2. Through time – we’ll trace the history of the market from its origins as a Jewish market to hip neighbourhood to the current coronavirus challenges, weaved through the stories of the stores we visit, from Alan’s cafe to Aunty’s bakery.
3. Through perspectives – we’ve got the insider edge, from special foods made just for our group, to secret photo spots in the market. After our day together, you will become an insider too!
Plus, taste the famous Toronto Truffle™ (Toffle™), an exclusive dessert invented by us. Inspired by the flavours of Toronto and Canada, the Toffle is a decadent cross between a maple butter tart and a chocolate truffle. You can only get this on a Tasty Tour!
