I'm visiting from a middle Eastern county, and the food here definitely tastes very Arabic. Great food and would visit again!

and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with
a strong student influence from the Ryerson University
Campus. As a result, the Downtown area is always in

with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to
Toronto's largest indoor shopping mall, a number of
