Chinatown Food Tour

In 1878, Sam Ching was the first Chinese man documented in the city of Toronto. He opened a laundry business in what was to become Chinatown.

More Chinese flooded into Toronto after landing jobs to build the Candian Pacific Railway. By 1910, hundreds of businesses occupied Chinatown, including restaurants, shops, and laundries.

Unfortunately, Chinatown has had to move multiple times due to City Hall construction and developers. The Chinese moved their businesses, and the ever expanding neighborhood continues to thrive.

Today, you will experience Chinese culture through the area’s restaurants, spas, and monuments. Their restaurants offer only the freshest and most traditional ingredients, leaving guests with an unparalleled cultural experience.
