4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 May 2016

I've been shopping here for years and I can honestly say it's been life changing. Incredible variety of Latino and Mexican foods, fresh, frozen and canned. Prices are quite good, too. The man behind the counter is helpful and can give advice on food preparation. Love the dried chilies, cactus, tamales, tortillas etc. Bought dulce de leche for the first... More

This is a most stop if you are in the market. Don't forget to try the mexican coffee (cafe de olla) with the girls of the patio. If you are preparing a latin american dish this store is where you wanna shop your ingredients. They have EVERYTHING.

Wanting to cook authentic Mexican food for my in-laws was becoming less of a possibility before finding this wonderful little market! Nowhere in Toronto could I find fresh green tomatillos and this place had them plus more (I went for tortillas, spices, chile serrano, enchilada sauce, queso fresco, etc.) Incredibly nice man helped us and greeted us from the start....

They seem to have all the ingredients one would need for Latin cuisine. Large selection of dried chilies, corn tortillas, spices etc. The corn tortillas were very tasty and totally unlike the supermarket variety.

The best place to cure a hangover. The women in the back make tacos, tamales and grilled peppers. Yummy!

Staying in Chinatown

Neighbourhood Profile
Chinatown
Toronto's main Chinatown has the honor of being the largest in North America. Gaping down across Dundas Street West and Spadina Avenue, the area is a wonderful medley of shops and restaurants, busy signs and bright red gates, a destination for foodie fun. Chinatown's streets are always bustling, packed with people and outdoor stalls hawking fresh produce and products. The restaurants and authentic marketplaces that shoulder in against each other display shining roast ducks and menus studded with dumplings and noodle bowls. The air is pervaded with music. different languages, and the smell of fried food and mouth-watering desserts. Chinatown's restaurants represent a broad range of fare, from traditional Szechuan and Shanghai foods, to other Asian delicacies, including some of the top Japanese, Vietnamese, and Korean spots in the city. Whether you're in the mood for a sit-down tea house or a bubble tea to go, Chinatown is the spot to enjoy an exciting walk and the promise of leaving satisfied.
