ETHNIC SUPERMARKET TOUR BY VAN
Tours offers an Ethnic Supermarket Tour by van of large markets dedicated to Ethnic taste. These are similar in size to your
local supermarket with unique ethnic products. Depending on the day and time most locations have food sampling to add to your
first destination is the Chinese Supermarket called TNT. This store has racks and racks of goods you
won't find at home (unless your home is China), but the real entertainment is the seafood like the geoduck clam. You will
see strange fruits such as Durian, dragon fruit, and rambutan. In addition to bok choy, which is now showing up on Canadian
tables, you’ll find Daikon, lily root, a wide selection of mushrooms like enoki, and other vegetables like taro, edo
and fuzzy melon plus many more.
A special added destination is the Cheese Boutique where prosciutto hangs from the ceiling, truffles are flown in every Wednesday, foie gras sits under lock
and key, beef is dry aged 60 days, there are olive oils from 80 different terroirs and jams made from green walnuts, the best
artisanal breads of the city, not to mention the chocolate boutique, pastry temptations and daily handpicked produce - but
it is for the cheese that one must visit for. This is a place where "best before" dates do not apply. Taking something good
and making it great is a constant philosophy of Cheese Boutique. This is Toronto's premier epicurean emporium for foodies and chefs alike.
Next you will visit Starsky a Polish Supermarket
that carries not only items for the Polish palate but a huge assortment of Eastern European food products as well. It has walls of perogies, trays of sausages for
tasting, and an aisle of loose candy and just about pickled anything. A deli counter serves hot, handmade cabbage rolls and
perogies all day.
fourth destination is Yummy a Russian Supermarket. Although primarily focused on Russian Cuisine it also has Eastern European
food from Lithuania, Estonia, Poland, and other countries. It is famous for its cured meats, pickles, baked goods, sweets
and dairy products. The market is known for its home-made foods, and locally grown organic products.
final destination is the Galeria a Korean superstore that carries all the usual Asian grocery basics, enriched with a strong
organic selection that includes miso paste and tofu. In addition to traditional Korean snacks and beverages, such as bright
green aloe vera drinks, you will be impressed by the selection of foods (you can get jars of kimchi bigger than your head),
also prepared bulgogi, tempura, fish cakes, walnut cakes, everything imaginable.
