Cuisine in Toronto

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The cuisine of Toronto reflects Toronto's size and multicultural diversity.[1][2][3] Ethnic neighbourhoods throughout the city focus on specific cuisines,[4] such as authentic Chinese and Vietnamese found in the city's Chinatowns, Korean in Koreatown, Greek on The Danforth, Italian cuisine in Little Italy and Corso Italia, and Indian/Pakistani in Little India. Other world cuisines available in the city include Portuguese, Hungarian, Japanese, and Caribbean. Toronto's large Jewish population has given rise to many Jewish restaurants and delis, with varying adherence to kosher rules.[5][6]
