What you'll do

Scarborough is a food lovers paradise! You can find almost any kind of food imaginable from all over the world here, it's just a matter of knowing where to look!

That's where I come in! I'll guide you through a one of a kind food tour where we will visit Mom and Pop shops, specialty supermarkets and local hidden gems to sample food from Sri Lanka, East Africa, India, The West Indies, The Middle East & Greece.

Come eat like a local and see where some of the best food in the city is hiding!

Other things to note
Bring a camera for a chance to take some great food shots! I would not recommend this tour to anyone with serious food allergies as we will be sampling a variety of cuisines with many ingredients.

I was born and raised in Scarborough, which is known as the most culturally diverse part of Toronto. One of my favourite things about this part of the city is the incredible array of food from all over the world that is available here. I consider myself very lucky to have grown up here and been introduced to so many different cultures and flavours from a young age.

I have been hosting small intimate food tours for few years in order to share some of my favourite hidden gems in Toronto's lesser visited neighbourhoods and suburbs.

We had a lovely experience with Danny. He was friendly, and very knowledgeable about the food and area. We enjoyed each and every stop on the tour. The food was delicious. I’m quite a picky eater and I actually loved all of the dishes we tried. If you’re in Toronto, I definitely recommend this tour. Danny is a wonderful host and it’s a great way to learn about the different types of food in the area from a local. You’ll also get lots of interesting details about Scarborough.

This is worth your time plain and simple. There would be no other way one could try so many cuisines in the span of a trip. Danny knows exactly how to portion the food at each stop, so that one is pleasantly full rather than hungry or uncomfortably stuffed. The order of the stops also makes sense palate-wise as well. During the transit between each stop, Danny informs you about the group of people who make the said food, and their history as a community living in the area. In short, it is worth your time and money.

We had a wonderful family outing with our adult children and Danny during the Christmas Break. Danny rolled with the punches and got into the spirit of the family dynamics and dad jokes. Danny is a true local and a wonderful Ambassador for Scarborough and the food scene. Our family has lived in Toronto for over 30 years it was great to find a food tour that was not the typical tourist type outing. This tour focused on local businesses that represented 6 different cultural groups. It was a unique combination of different tastes but it all seemed to work the way they were weaved together. We enjoyed one of the places so much we went back the next day to get a bigger helping of delicious. Danny was expert in moving us in and out of places and it always seemed the spots got super busy just when we were getting ready to leave. The business owners were also very hospitable . I would definitely recommend the tour to others and look forward to booking another day with Danny this time without the kids.
