Kothu Fest celebrates the famous Sri-Lankan street dish in Toronto when it returns for its third year to Albert Campbell Square at Scarborough Civic Centre in August.
Kothu roti is a staple of Sri Lankan cuisine comprising shredded roti (flatbread), spiced vegetables, eggs and/or meats, and curried gravy, and is cooked and chopped over a flat metal plate that results in a “cacophony of rhythmic sound, sight, and smell.”
On the bill this year, Toronto’s most renowned Kothu Roti vendors and the chance for tasters to vote on the “People’s Choice Best Kothu Roti Award,” as well as music and entertainment from diverse and emerging local artists.
When: August 12, 11 am to 11 pm
Where: Scarborough Civic Centre, 150 Borough Drive, Toronto
Price: Admission is free
