A Middle Eastern food festival is coming to Toronto on July 27
With spit-roasted shawarma, grilled halloumi, sticky baklava and more, this upcoming food fest bills itself as a chance to sample “the 1001 flavours Middle Eastern culture has to offer.”
Toronto’s Taste of the Middle East Food Festival is set to take over Yonge-Dundas square again for a single day this summer.
- This massive food truck fest is happening near Toronto on May 4
- This all-you-can-eat night market is returning to Toronto June 18 and 19
While the line-up of vendors is still to be announced, the festival, in support of Second Harvest, is advertising the chance to “learn what a Jalab is or how Turkish coffee is made. Try a sip of Arak or maybe a bite of Manooshe.”
And if last year’s line-up is any indication, it’s going to be a delicious day. Chefs behind Paramount Fine Foods, Byblos, and many more mouthwatering spots were serving up the goods.
In addition to eating, attendees can look forward to vibrant art, music, and dance.
And best of all, admission is free!
