Sarah Elton Wraps Her Toronto Food Tour

We've been taking a tour around the GTA and tasting all the fantastic food that you can find in our plazas and strip malls with our food columnist Sarah Elton. We've been to Scarborough. We've been to Jane and Finch. We've been to Mississauga. This week features the last instalment of Neighbourhood Food Tour Series: a trip to North York. Listen audio (runs 9:12)

Sarah headed north from Finch, up Yonge Street with Joel Solish, a self-proclaimed Community Foodist who works with local food industry partners ( The few blocks of the street they visited recalled many food memories for Joel-and also the history of the area. They also ate some darn good food.

They tried: (please excuse the possible errors in the transliteration of Korean and Persian below)

- The kam pun gi at Cho Won Family Restaurant, 17 Drewry Avenue
- The amazing pastries such as the zulbia, gulshe fil (elephants' ears) and bamiyan at PARS Food, 6087 Yonge St
- Some eggplant dip (badam jahn kashk) and fresh baked Persian bread at Khorak 6125 Yonge Street
