We were disppointed today when we arrived at Kensington Cornerstone and saw a large dumpster out front. I feared that this reliable gluten free restaurant had closed down but fortunately, it is undergoing a renovation. The sign out front says it will reopen January 10/14....More

Toronto's main Chinatown has the honor of being the

Chinatown's streets are always bustling, packed with
people and outdoor stalls hawking fresh produce and
products. The restaurants and authentic marketplaces
