If you’re a self-confessed foodie but have yet to try Tibetan momos, real Jamaican patties, or Canadian bannock, let’s be honest; can you even call yourself a foodie?

It’s a well-known fact that the best part of travelling the world is tasting all the iconic foods that come from each country — and now you can travel the world without even leaving Toronto. No passports required.

Toronto’s reputation as the world’s most multicultural city (a whopping 50% of the population is foreign-born) makes it the perfect place for adventurous foodies to explore the tastes from across the globe. This summer, grab your hungry friends and family to join you on an adventure without ever leaving town!

Local food tour company Chopsticks+Forks takes you on an adventure through eight different countries in Toronto’s Kensington Market neighbourhood, where you will take a glimpse into the diverse flavours from countries all around the world.

Discover the culture and history of the city, just northwest of the busy Downtown area. Get away from the hustle and bustle of Yonge Street and instead dive deep into the heart of the most treasured and distinctive neighbourhood in Toronto with Chopsticks+Forks’ knowledgeable tour guides.

With a passion to connect people to the world through food, the tours were specially designed by founder and world-traveller-turned-CEO (Chief Epicurean Officer) Jusep Sim. His globetrotting culinary adventures taught him that “food is central to the culture of a place — a way to communicate what a place is about beyond language.”

This led him to create a truly unique international food tour, bringing it to the number one spot of food experiences in the city with ratings from over 300 guests.

New this spring, you can also now have the quintessential Canadian food experience in a tour that has just been added to the Chopsticks+Forks lineup. The Great Canadian Food Tour is perfect for out-of-town guests, or for those who are interested in the history of local Canadian foods.

There are pescetarian and vegetarian options available on the tours, and tour groups are limited to 12 people. Eating the best foods usually comes with long lines and waits, but here guests enjoy instant VIP access to some of Kensington Market’s best dishes.

Tours start at $79 per adult plus taxes, however, Daily Hive readers will get an additional 10% off when booking with the code DAILYHIVE.
