I never trust an empanada from any place where the staff does not speak spanish. Luckily, this was not the case. Greated warmly and served quickly. The empanadas here are over baked and gigantic. The beef was a bit sweet from the raisins and savory...More

You might pass by this joint with all the restaurants and sights of Kensington Market but it is SO worth a stop. We read about these empanadas on many food blogs while resreaching for our trip to Toronto and this place was on every list....More

The quaint and small Jumbo Empanadas restaurant serves up delicious and, you guessed it, JUMBO Chilean empanadas. These were probably the cleanest, non-greasiest empanadas I've had.

A large selection of emapanadas baked all day long so always fresh. Owned by the same lady since it opened about 25 years ago.

Awesome flavour - delicious. The salsa is unique and in demand. Unpretentious and if you happen to be in Kensington Market a fabulous place for lunch. Order at the counter - semi-self serve and a lot of regulars. Bit (huge) empanadas.

Don't blink, as you might walk right by this place. The Kensington area is a must-go for tourists and locals alike. A visit to Kensington is not complete with devouring a couple jumbo Empanadas. Ask for extra (spicy) salsa on the side. To die for....More

Toronto's main Chinatown has the honor of being the
largest in North America. Gaping down across Dundas
Street West and Spadina Avenue, the area is a
wonderful medley of shops and restaurants, busy signs
and bright red gates, a destination for foodie fun.
Chinatown's streets are always bustling, packed with
people and outdoor stalls hawking fresh produce and
products. The restaurants and authentic marketplaces
