Only in Toronto...


I visited the Taste of the Danforth festival today in downtown Toronto. For those who aren't local, this is an annual street festival (Danforth Avenue) showcasing the local food and wares of the area, which is predominantly of the Greek culture.

I try to go every year. I love the food, the music, the culture and today, the sun. It was a balmy 31 degrees Celsius. Clear skies. Just peachy. I got to enjoy all my favourite Greek treats: Dolmades, Gyros and Loukoumades.

It's funny though. There was one stand that was selling Tandoori Chicken on a Ciabatta Bun. Only in Toronto could you find an Indian dish served on an Italian bun at a Greek street festival.
