First you will enter the Kensington Market recognized in 2006 as a National Historic Site, the outdoor market, bordered by Little Italy and China town, has come a long way since its early beginnings as a British war hero's estate. Here your guide will give you a short Toronto history lesson before leading the way to the first of 6 stops at local eateries.

You will get to try a Toronto snack time favorite that comes in over 50 flavors. Then it is off for a quick photo op with the beautiful downtown Toronto skyline as your backdrop. Up next, we taste Toronto's latest food trend the best jerk chicken in the city. The tour continues with stops for Caribbean, Latin American, and Canadian comfort food.

Your guide will share stories of the neighborhood while showing off the vintage shops and multicultural merchants. A visit to the Lopez family's restaurant finds us feasting on authentic Mexican Tacos and frozen margaritas.
