Chinese cooking is one of the oldest and most diverse in the world. In fact, each of the 23 provinces in China has its own cooking style. Toronto is lucky to be home to one of the largest Chinatowns in the Western Hemisphere. Sometimes referred to as the original Chinatown, it is one of 7 in the Greater Toronto Area. This neighbourhood is a beehive of activity with its many shops, cheap housewares, fruit and vegetable stall, traditional Chinese herbal medicine dispensaries and of course, tons of great food. 

It can be a pretty intimidating place for those who are unfamiliar with the food and customs of the Asian culture. Let our knowledgeable guide lead the way through a tutored tasting that begins with a traditional Chinese Bakery and will include Vietnamese, Cantonese, Sechewan, Thai, Mandarin, Shanghai and Beijing delicacies. No Chinatown Tour would be complete without an authentic Hong Kong Dim Sum experience, but don't worry we got you covered. Along the way, you will learn the history and culture of the community, one woman's fight to keep the community from being demolished as well as tidbits of etiquette and ancient customs. So “chī hǎo hē hǎo” 吃好喝好 which literally translates as “eat well and drink"! We hope to see you soon!
