Awesome flavour - delicious. The salsa is unique and in demand. Unpretentious and if you happen to be in Kensington Market a fabulous place for lunch. Order at the counter - semi-self serve and a lot of regulars. Bit (huge) empanadas.

Don't blink, as you might walk right by this place. The Kensington area is a must-go for tourists and locals alike. A visit to Kensington is not complete with devouring a couple jumbo Empanadas. Ask for extra (spicy) salsa on the side. To die for....More

The empanadas were ok, I had the beef. I guess I was expecting something spicier. The Chilean salad was awesome and the patio was small but comfortable.

Wow, what a find! I just love the empanadas "Jumbo" makes. They are among the best if not the best even in comparison with the ones you get in Chile. The big secret is the crust and Irene's are just perfect. You can eat everything...More

My friend and I arrived a few minutes after they had closed on the Chilean Independence day. They were so kind as they still let us purchase a few things-to-go anyway. We ordered the veggie empanada and 2 meet ones, the corn pie and a...More

You get a lot of empanada for what you pay for but the meat empanadas could use some additional flavor. My wife and I tried the beef, chicken, and cheese empanadas. All three had very good pastry. The ground beef empanadas also had what seemed...More

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
