Downtown at the Night Market

Tuesday, August 10, 2010
This past weekend was the first T&T Waterfront Night Market. The night market came to Toronto from East Asia, via Richmond and Vancouver. This night market featured over 60 food and merchandise vendors, serving up an eclectic mix of treats including Taiwanese popcorn chicken, pineapple slush in hollowed out pineapples, tofuyaki, Thai desserts, bubble tea, Singapore beef jerky, and Filipino sago.

The signature items were the Tornado Potato, a jumbo potato cut into a long corkscrew and deep-fried, and the infamous Stinky Tofu... which is exactly what it's called.

Having the Night Market, the Taste of the Danforth, and the Festival of Beer on the same weekend certainly left many a liver crying.

In Vancouver they run night markets all summer long. Hoping we get some of that here in TO.

It's going to be next week again (july 21-24, 2011) and we will have a booth there featuring all-Filipino street food :)
Hope to see you there!
