There are so many good restaurants in Kensington Market but we always return to this one. It's a very cozy place and the inside can get very warm. It's changed since the above picture was taken. There's now an awning and tables in front and...More

Had an empanada here and the meat was all wrong. Not authentic. Every Chilean person I know does not eat here. I even had some friends that have eaten in Chilean homes and complant that these were nothing like the chilean food they have tried....More

A large selection of emapanadas baked all day long so always fresh. Owned by the same lady since it opened about 25 years ago.

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.

Someone had recommended the corn pie and it was excellent. Very large and great to share. We ordered a few small chicken empanadas to try as well. All good! Small place with nice outdoor seating too. Cash or debit only. The prices are spot on....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.

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
