While we were in Toronto as part of the Hot Docs Podcast Festival, we took the opportunity to team up with Toronto-based food and travel writer Suresh Doss, who is amazing at capturing the stories and flavors of the Greater Toronto Area (GTA). He was our guide to a small handful of places in the borough of Scarborough, population approximately 600,000. It's an incredibly diverse area with a lot of different neighborhoods, all teeming with restaurants. These places are made to cater to the local community and they’re off the grid, rarely visited by tourists. Francis Lam talks with Suresh on stage at the festival to recap their culinary journey. The photos below were taken by our Senior Producer Jennifer Russell and Francis Lam during their visit. Learn more about Suresh Doss's GTA Food Tours here.
