Kensington Market

Wedged between Chinatown and Little Italy, this rich cultural hub is one of North America's best street markets. It’s full of old and colorful buildings, and was named a national heritage site since November 2006. You’ll find a diverse mix of Toronto’s population here. With the variety of global and fusion restaurants, not to mention an eclectic mix of shops and vendors, it’s the perfect place to try something new.

The Dirty Bird

Originally a food truck, The Dirty Bird is one of the most recommended places in my circle. A full step above your typical chicken and waffle joint, the flavours have a Canadian twist and rely on herbs more than simple sauces. If you must, their honey mustard sauce can add a good kick. First-timers should try their signature ODB: a perfectly cooked piece of boneless chicken (juicy inside, crunchy outside) served over a fluffy made-to-order waffle. Best enjoyed with an empty stomach, or with a friend from out of town; the portions are very large.
