Kothu Fest celebrates Sri-Lankan street food in Toronto this month

Jul 4 2018, 7:05 pm

Kothu Fest is coming to Yonge-Dundas Square this summer!

The street food festival, dubbed as a “cacophony of rhythmic sound, sight, and smell,” originated in Scarborough but has now found a new home this year in Toronto’s downtown Toronto core.

The celebrations are centred around Kothu roti, a popular Sri Lankan dish prepared with chopped-up roti (flatbread), spiced vegetables, eggs and/or meats, and a curried gravy. It’s cooked over a flat top grill in a way that results in a rhythmic chopping sound described as a “sensory delight for observers.”

The one-day-only food fest is on Saturday, July 28 from 11:30 am to 11 pm and while the line-up of vendors has yet to be announced if this event is anything like years past, look forward to dishes from Toronto’s most renowned Kothu Roti vendors, as well as music and entertainment from diverse and emerging local artists.
