Interesting location not far the University and at the start of Kensington Market. Restaurant is a snack shop with a big awning attached. Great value, tasty burritos. Small size is enough for mere mortals but go for the large if you're hungry. Full loaded & great with the steak option! Small TV for sports if you want to keep up... More

Whether you are a meat eater or not this is the place to go. Friendly staff, great atmosphere. The food is delicious and they don't skimp on the fillings for your food. Tacos and burritos yum!

Went to Kensington market with my kids and once they saw the burrito, they jumped into the shop and bought one chicken burrito and a chicken salad bowl. I ordered guac and chips. The food turned out to be amazing and really different. Nice location and food is simply great.

heir burritos are really nice with a fair size compared to the price. They have many different options of fillings and everything (also taxes) is included in the price you see on the board/in the menu. The only downside is, that they are really busy and was short staffed when I was there, which meant I had to wait quite... More

Staying in Chinatown

Neighborhood Profile
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 that shoulder in against each other display shining roast ducks and menus studded with dumplings and noodle bowls. The air is pervaded with music. different languages, and the smell of fried food and mouth-watering desserts. Chinatown's restaurants represent a broad range of fare, from traditional Szechuan and Shanghai foods, to other Asian delicacies, including some of the top Japanese, Vietnamese, and Korean spots in the city. Whether you're in the mood for a sit-down tea house or a bubble tea to go, Chinatown is the spot to enjoy an exciting walk and the promise of leaving satisfied.
